Henry Rollins ****

Spoken-word performances are something which Henry Rollins is now well renowned for, and on the strength of this show it's easy to see why.

Barely pausing for breath, Rollins takes us on a rollercoaster monologue about US politics, world travel and Eddie Van Halen, seemingly pouring out streams of his own consciousness in a polished and powerhouse performance.

Funny and powerful, the greying tattooed former Black Flag frontman is adept at holding a sell-out crowd in the palm of his hand and the hour-long set flies past due to his charisma, talent and viewpoints.
