Amanda Palmer Takes Australia in 2017

Singer-songwriter and New York Times bestselling author Amanda Palmer returns to Australia for her first ever “An Evening With Amanda Palmer” styled tour.

Following a tumultuous period of change including the birth of her son, the tragic deaths of close friends,  a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign and the release of her memoir The Art of Asking, Palmer’s provocative art is captivatingly earnest and subversive as ever. Reaffirming her title as the queen of punk cabaret, Palmer’s love affair with Australia continues as she takes the stage alone, journeying from musical beginnings and fan favourites though to the next surprising chapter;

‘It’s time: I am taking it back to basics,” Amanda Palmer says. “I am going on a short, super-stripped down tour with just me, a suitcase, a piano, a ukulele, and a baby. Just Me. Piano. Songs. Some old songs, some new songs, lots of feelings, lots of ridiculousness. Certainly wine. Babies and piano and wine actually go together phenomenally’, she says.  ‘It’s time to get back on stage and remind myself and everybody else that without the music, there’s nothing. It drives me crazy when people have read my book 3 times cover to cover but don’t bother to look up the music of The Dresden Dolls or dig into my songwriting catalog. Time to fix that.’
