One of Australia's most famous Underbelly identities Mark 'Chopper' Read will appear on stage at Melbourne's Athenaeum in September.
The notorious Chopper, whose life was depicted in the movie 'Chopper' starring Eric Bana, will tell his life story in 'Mark 'Chopper' Read ' the Man, the Legend'.
Read spent 13 months out of prison between the ages of 20 and 38 but says he has no regrets. 'Apart from Irish whiskey, good cigars, Pontiac motor cars, and a pistol grip baby .410 shotgun with solid load shells, what I love the most is kidnapping smartarse gangsters and taking their money. To the human filth I have bashed, belted, iron barred, axed, shot, stabbed, knee capped, set on fire and driven to their graves, I can only quote from the motto of the French Foreign Legion, 'Je Ne Regrette Rien' . I REGRET NOTHING,' he said in a statement.
The Mark 'Chopper' Read story is about a troubled kid who started life on the wrong path. In 2012 he was diagnosed with liver cancer and at the time given six months to live. He had surgery to remove the tumors in July 2012 and the cancer currently in remission.
'Mark 'Chopper' Read ' the Man, the Legend' is on September 23 at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne.
