Time Out says

The world’s foremost high priestess of alternative music and art returns to Sydney

Singer, writer, pianist and activist Amanda Palmer will make a valiant return to Sydney on the Australian leg of her latest world tour.

There Will Be No Intermission promises to be a night of graphic, honest and funny storytelling featuring music from Palmer’s entirely crowd-funded album of the same name, which is being called her most personal work to date.  

With songs that tackle life, death, grief and how to make sense of it all, the music and imagery around There Will Be No Intermission also delves into protest art – with scenes of Palmer breastfeeding a Trump-like character. 

Formerly one-half of 'Brechtian punk cabaret' duo the Dresden Dolls, Palmer’s style is hard to pin down – a kind of folk-punk cabaret with a gothic edge. Whether she’s sitting at a grand piano or plucking away at a ukulele, Palmer consistently delivers emotionally gripping work. Born from an eventful and turbulent few years, her tour, which is stopping in at the Enmore Theatre on February 20, promises to be a poignant yet high-drama experience.
