Amanda Palmer: Tour Australia and New Zealand in March 2009

Written by Toby Smith on January 13, 2009

It’s with delight The Frontier Touring Company confirms Amanda Palmer will tour Australia and New Zealand in March. Following 2007’s maiden solo voyage to Australia, Amanda will return along with The Danger Ensemble to perform in Brisbane and Melbourne, in addition to playing her first ever official shows in Adelaide, Perth and Auckland.

A one-woman machine, The Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer is a rock musician, artist, writer, political activist and more. With a penchant for the complicated, Amanda Palmer’s debut solo outing Who Killed Amanda Palmer (out now through Roadrunner) snowballed from a small idea into a project that’s nothing short of brilliant.

Who Killed Amanda Palmer sees our fearless heroine weaving together the many threads of her personality, her interests, her extensive artistic family, her astute, witty world observations and the stark openness of her feelings into a dynamic record that pushes emotional limits while staying true to its genius creator. From Amanda Palmer, we would expect nothing less.

The critics have agreed resoundingly.

“Who Killed Amanda Palmer showcases her endless creativity exposing her as a woman whose artistic endeavours have no boundaries” Rip It Up

“Palmer’s gift for delivering an entire narrative in one understated couplet is as strong as ever” -Time Out

Not your typical live show, Amanda Palmer & The Danger Ensemble will challenge the expectations you’ve learned to live with. Sinister, sweeping and wild, Amanda Palmer is sure to thrill when she touches down this March. The roaring successes of tours past will ensure the Who Killed Amanda Palmer tour falls firmly into 2009’s “must not miss” column.

With special guests Zoe Keating (Aus only) & Lyndon Chester (Aus only excl SA)
