Inimitable dark cabaret heroine Amanda Palmer has locked in NZ dates for her highly-anticipated 'There Will Be No Intermission' tour next year. She is set to perform three thought-provoking shows in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
Released last March, 'There Will Be No Intermission' is Amanda Palmer's third and most recent solo LP. It's a groundbreaking collection of songs that tackle the big questions about life, death, grief and how we make sense with it all. Sombre yet exultant, the record presents still more dimensions to Palmer's already voluminous talent—once again confirming her as a master songwriter at the height of considerable power.
Known for her enigmatic views, Amanda Palmer is a one-of-a-kind artist who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, and art. She first came to prominence as the lead vocalist of the Boston-based punk cabaret duo, The Dresden Dolls—earning global applause for their inventive songcraft and wide-ranging theatricality. As she ventures on her solo career, she's proven herself to be equally brave and boundless. A one-woman machine who has miraculously moulded humour, tears, confession, and naked personal pain into a matchless piece of work.
'There Will Be No Intermission' tour will see Palmer on solo piano and ukulele, with no band accompaniment—a night of graphic, honest, and funny storytelling with songs that she claims will be her "most human and vulnerable stage-show to date."
