UK & IRELAND SOLO TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED! my last round….for a while at least.


there will be a few more dates to come – including a handful of FREE bookstore signings in the major cities – but this is bulk of my upcoming, and last, tour (for a while at least).

these solo shows will be sort of a combination of my last two USA tours…some eclectic combination of book-readin’, piano-playing, chatting with guests, ukulele-slaying, and mostly unabashed emoting as i say goodbye to touring for a while to go…you know, give birth n’ stuff.

in cities where I *don’t* have a separate bookstore signing, i WILL be signing after some shows (but be forgiving, i’ll be 6 months along and tired as a pregnant lady). we will have copies of “the art of asking” for sale, along with AMANDA _____ PALMER shirts for sale. shit got downright bizarre by the end of the US tour…i was writing things on those shirts that *i* didn’t even want to ask about….AND we will have (wait for it) boxes of the infamous “dear daily mail” nudie pen. because of course. i will personally post one to the daily mail upon arrival in the UK.

as with the states (where everybody did a fantabulous job…) PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THESE GIGS! word of mouth is where it’s at, and you guys tweeting, emailing, facebooking and otherwise spreading the word about these shows really, really helps. i’d love them all to be as beautiful and successful as this run i just did in the states.

this exact info went out to the mailing list earlier this morning – if you want to be on the list to get things like this FIRST, sign up here:

    Well, obviously, it’s great I signed up for a monthly automatic donation on your Patreon with my credit card, now that you won’t be touring here or releasing a new album for long long time. I guess that DD album i’ve been dreaming about all these years is for not.

    I was SO happy I would see you live, but the tickets for the gig in London sold out in less than one hour! :'(

    • Lica Oliveira

      The worst part is that there are already tickets being sold at viagogo for twice the original price. :( why people do that?

      • SherylDuh

        Maybe lisa because this is the last time you guys are going to see a concert from them again in a very long time #childcare #duh #bigduh

  • Angie

    Sad I can’t make any UK dates, hopefully there’ll be a video of one of the nights available? If not for general then for Patreons? x

    Parenting does take up a lot of time, but.. I can’t see it stopping AFP for long. I can see a one-year-old happily sitting in a Bumbo and watching Momma Palmer write songs on the piano, for example.

    Hope everyone with tickets/who hears about ninja gigs has an awesome time! I’ll be over here, waiting for AFP to come anywhere near Omaha, NE. I have faith. I can keep waiting.

    Hope the pregnancy hasn’t been too much of a pain, for, you know, a slowly life-changing event! You probably don’t look as tired as you feel. <3

    Now all I need to do is convince my mum to let me to go Edinburgh. I’m going to cry. I need to see your baby belly.
