An Evening with Amanda Palmer

Venue Tank 5 - On sale now

As part of Tanks' Women’s Week celebrations, the queen of punk cabaret, Amanda Palmer, continues her love affair with Australia with an intimate solo performance at Tanks spanning The Dresden Dolls songs, fan favourites and brand-new material.

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.

We can expect an insight into the next surprising chapter for the singer-songwriter and New York Times bestselling author; '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’.

This event is part of the Tanks' Women's Week series, revolving around International Women's Day, 8 March, a global opportunity to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women. #BEBOLDFORCHANGE
