An evening with world-renowned punk cabaret pianist, Amanda Palmer.

An Evening with Amanda Palmer

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre

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

Provocative, controversial and wildly creative, Amanda Palmer is a fearless singer, songwriter, playwright, blogger and an audaciously expressive pianist. Known internationally as one half of the acclaimed punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer combines music, theatre and art with her love of Australia in a hymn to Vegemite - aka 'The Black Death'.

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.
