Amanda Palmer & The GTO

 AmandaPalmer1Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra

Hot off the heels of delivering an epic TEDtalk that quickly rose to internet fame as the fastest viewed talk in TED history, and a string of events at SXSW 2013 that saw Amanda Palmer duet with longtime hero, Billy Bragg— Amanda and her raucous crew, The Grand Theft Orchestra, are thrilled to announce re-scheduled European tour dates for 2013 to make up for the previously cancelled bolt across the continent in March. As part of the European tour, Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra will play the following UK dates:

Tickets on general sale priced £17.50 (regionally) / £19.50 (London) (subject to booking fee) from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk  All tickets purchased for the original March tour dates will remain valid for the rescheduled dates in each city.

With a handful of summer festivals thrown into the mix- all headlining dates find singer, songwriter, piano-slayer and super-blogger Amanda Palmer, and her band, continuing to promote her arguably most pop-influenced album yet, Theatre Is Evil. Tour-mates The Simple Pleasure and Jherek Bischoff are on board as main support acts in all markets.

’It is the sheer raw talent and the acerbic, perceptive songwriting which elevates Palmer above the sorry sea of wannabe Kate Bushes.’ – Independent on Sunday *****

‘Theatre Is Evil feels like sitting on the bed of your tattooed, far cooler cousin 30 years ago, while she tells you “all you need to know” about music’  – Guardian ****

‘a bombastic offering of forthright glam-pop and poignant piano-pushed desire’ – NME 7/10

‘a vivid splurge of new wave, glam-rock and showtunes, armed with lyrics as punchy and memorable as their melodies’  – Q ****

‘an extraordinary talent’ – Telegraph *****
