Event Detail

Palmer, who spent over two years waylaid in Aotearoa New Zealand with her young son during the pandemic, returns to Aotearoa New Zealand for “Amanda Palmer Comes Down For a Quick Catch-up: Old Songs, New Songs, New Zealand Survival Songs,” an intimate run of concerts in Queenstown, Auckland and Wellington.

This short tour will see Palmer engaging her devoted fans as only she can, telling stories, revealing the inspiration behind the survival songs, and of course, playing material from her ever-evolving body of work as both solo artist and one-half of The Dresden Dolls, including new songs from the iconic punk cabaret duo’s upcoming new album arranged especially for solo piano.

Palmer will also honour her time as an accidental Kiwi with New Zealand Survival Songs, a brand-new five-song EP of material written and recorded during that life-changing experience.
