An Evening With Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Dolls

Roger Bowie

Singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer, who is currently residing in Aotearoa until the smoke clears in her home of New York, returns to make up her cancelled Wellington show, with 500% more pain, love and pathos than usual.

And, caught in Hawkes Bay for the outbreak of COVID, and currently residing in Hastings until the smoke clears in her hometown of New York, the front-woman of the internationally acclaimed punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, presents a very special show at Toitoi - Hawkes Bay Opera House.

Amanda Palmer will present this show with no band accompaniment, performing material from her critically-hailed global album and tour There Will Be No Intermission, alongside old favourites from The Dresden Dolls and - surprise! - new songs freshly-written during Level Four lockdown right here in Hawkes Bay, Aotearoa.

Expect a night of graphic, honest, funny storytelling and very human and vulnerable songcraft. Handkerchiefs will be for sale.
