The 'Messiah Complex' tour has been described as "a dissection of various social and religious figures and the reality of their lives through comparisons of each other." In other words, Brand will be looking at said figures and tearing them a whole plethora of new holes, whilst asking - why do we need heroes to worship?
All people are flawed, all of us; some are capable of greatness and for every tangible human icon, there is an anonymous mob of unrecognised lackies doing all the admin and heavy lifting. This show looks at the importance of heroes in this age of atheistic disposability. Plus there's sex, go figure.
Brand has come to international attention of late, for verbally eviscerating the MSNBC Morning Joe team on live TV. Hecklers, be afraid. Be very afraid.
