Amanda Palmer maps new solo shows
Amanda Palmer, half of cabaret pop duo The Dresden Dolls, will take to the road this fall as she continues to support her solo debut from last year.
The singer/songwriter/pianist kicks off the outing Nov. 11 in Burlington, VT. The brief excursion concludes with a Nov. 22 show in Knoxville, TN. Dates are below.
"Who Killed Amanda Palmer?," the singer's debut solo album, surfaced last summer. The set, produced by Palmer and fellow singer/songwriter/pianist Ben Folds, peaked at No. 77 on The Billboard 200 album chart.
Palmer recently took to her blog to dispel rumors that she and her Dresden Dolls bandmate, Brian Viglione, would be ending their current hiatus to record and plan shows in the near future.
"There's been a ton of press lately re-printing an old quote from an old interview that’s now blown up into a full-fledged press rumour that Brian and I have planned Dresden Dolls' shows for 2010," she wrote in the blog entry. "Not true. We aren’t planning any shows. Sorry about that, blame the gossip whores."
The Dresden Dolls' most recent studio release is 2006's "Yes, Virginia," which hit No. 42 on The Billboard 200. Last spring, the duo released a companion set, "No, Virginia," which contained b-sides and rarities, along with new recordings of some of the band's older songs.
