The Dresden Dolls Australian Tour

Followers of theatrical punk cabaret stars The Dresden Dolls can rejoice as news breaks of their upcoming reunion national tour. The dynamic pair, comprised of Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione, reached infamy through their brand of art house rock, steadily climbing out of the artistic trenches from which they were born.

The Dresden Dolls will be stopping in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

The Dresden Dolls beguiling breed of stylised Brechtian punk cabaret erupts with theatrics, spontaneity and genuine frivolity. Fans and critics cannot wait to get in on the action once again after their previous tours proved to be such a treat:

"On stage they interact intuitively and naturally, their rapport is palpable. The best songs are manic, like ants at fairy bread... The songs are visual, they come to life, and seem made out of pieces of goddesses and monsters, troy horses and walking sticks." - Brag

"From the second Palmer touches the keys and opens her mouth, a scene is set. It is century old European cabaret and it's wonderful... Now that's what I call a show." - Drum Media

"It's difficult to imagine anyone else pulling this off so convincingly." - Rolling Stone

Whilst Amanda is certainly no stranger to our shores, it has been six years since she and Brian performed here as The Dresden Dolls and in the minds and hearts of their devoted fans, that is truly six years too many.

Amanda and Brian's live shows have enchanted and enthralled audiences the world over since their formation over a decade ago and their return will no doubt be much celebrated. Be sure to catch them as they grace the nation’s finest theatres this coming January!
