Amanda ‘Fucking’ Palmer is Back

She’s baaaack! That cheeky, controversial minx we all love, Amanda Palmer is coming back and she’s bigger than ever; set to tour Australia and New Zealand with The Grand Theft Orchestra in 2013.


Also known as Amanda ‘Fucking’ Palmer, the former lead singer/pianist/lyricist of punk outfit The Dresden Dolls isn’t shy and is certainly not a stranger to controversy.

Palmer recently copped some flack for sending out an invitation on her blog for musicians to join her back up band, offering beer, hugs and high fives as the only form of remuneration.  Needless to say, shit got real. With fans and musicians offering generous amounts of backlash on Le Internet.

Luckily Palmer has since realised money makes the world go round and declared to pay her back up band members.  Which is excellent news! Because now we can enjoy her kooky, crazy, punk-cabaret tunes guilt-free when she hits our shores early next year.

Her latest album Theatre Is Evil, released this year, was completely funded by various donations via Kickstarter, which raised a whopping $1.2 milllion.  Definitely worth a listen.  Check out tour dates below.
