    Hi guys,

    Am off to watch Henry at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Thurs night - anyone else going? Also, can anyone give me any pointers on what to expect this time around?

    I've never seen him before (spoken word-wise) and was hoping someone might point me in the way of CDs or DVDs to check out beforehand :thumbsup:

    Cheers in advance,

    Andy :)

    I have seen him a few times before and its always good.
    He just pretty much talks for 2 hours or so telling you stories of his travels the previous year and so on.
    There are a few CD's available, just check Amazon I think.

    If you like Henry Rollins then you will enjoy the 2 hours or so.

    As much as I love Black Flag and the Rollins Band, his spoken word has never really done it for me .

    He''s just not as erudite or (sorry!) intelligent as the likes of Jello or (obviously!) Noam Chomsky...I often cringe at his quotes on music documentaries

    I'm going to the same show on Thursday. I've seen him more than a few times over the years [been a fan since 1982] and I always feel as though I get very good value from his shows.

    Although his live shows build and crackle with intensity, I always feel engaged throughout. If you've not seen him before, I'm sure that you'll be in for a treat.

    Manchester was a great night - he did a two-and-a-half hour set none stop, without so much as a sip of water, and kept us thoroughly rapt all night :)

    Majority of the set came from his travels over the past two years, North Korea, Haiti, China, Vietnam and so on :thumbsup:
