The hardcore punk legend has cancelled the UK/European 2022 dates for his “Good To See You” tour
Henry Rollins has announced that he has been forced to cancel the UK and European leg of his Good To See You 2022 tour, but the North American leg is still scheduled to go ahead.
The news was broken to fans with the following social media message, “Due to the surge in COVID-19 and the challenges it presents, Henry’s upcoming European / UK tour dates have been cancelled”. Rollins was due to kick off in Berlin on January 9, and continue through to February 28 in Manchester.
“Refunds will be available at the original point of purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience. There are no plans to cancel US/Canadian dates at this time.”
The U.S. and Canadian leg is set to kick off on March 12th in Royal Oak, MI at the Royal Oak Music Hall and wrap up on June 9th in St. John’s, NL at the Arts & Culture Centre.
North America/Canada tour dates
Announced last October, the former Black Flag frontman’s tour had been billed as one which would “faithfully recount the events of his life in the brief pre-Covid period since the last tour and when things got even stranger over the last several months”
In a recent interview on legendary producer Rick Rubin’s podcast, Broken Record, Rollins spoke in detail about why he gave up on making music. He explained: “The smart thing I did as a younger man was one day I woke up in my bed and I went, ‘I’m done with music. I don’t hate it. I just have no more lyrics. There’s no more toothpaste in the tube”.
“I called my manager at the time and I said, ‘I’m done with music.’ And 15 percent of that was a good thing for him. He was, like, ‘No. No.’ I was like, ‘Yes.’ And so luckily, I had enough movies, voiceover, documentary work, writing, talking, where that just filled in, and now I’m busier than ever. But I walked away before I had to start saying, ‘Hey, kids, remember this one?’”
