Eccentric singer lines up three shows for later this year

Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer has announced a UK tour for later this year.

The singer, who releases her third solo album ‘Theatre Is Evil’ in September, will play three UK shows on the trek as part of a full European tour.

The run of shows kicks off at London’s Koko on October 23 before the singer travels to Manchester to play the city’s Cathedral on October 24. She ends her short UK run with a gig at Glasgow’s Oran Mor on October 25.

Palmer hit the headlines earlier this year when she managed to raise over $1.1 million to release her new album via online fundraiser site Kickstarter.

Speaking to NME previously about the project, Palmer said: “This isn’t a shtick or a gimmick – the idea of releasing a record on a major label again for me is absurd. The music industry has long needed a new system and crowd-funding is it. The game is reversing – the media and the machine are following, rather than creating, the content.”

Amanda Palmer will play:

London Koko (October 23)
Manchester Cathedral (24)
Glasgow Oran Mor (25)

Tickets go onsale on Friday (July 13) at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of Amanda Palmer tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
