Be a part of "An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer…" whether you want to attend the shows, or live a million miles away…

starting halloween night, amanda palmer & neil gaiman will be tearing up through the west coast of north america on a mini-tour.

we'll have a piano, a ukulele, and maybe some other weird instruments, as well as some unpublished and uncollected Neil Gaiman stories and poems. we'll both probably switch up what we're presenting from night to night. we'll be taking questions from the audience, chat-style, and trying to do special things in each venue, busting out a few surprises, and more or less trying to feel like we've connected with you, the people we love and usually only get to talk to directly on twitter & blog-land.

here's where we're heading and when:


PLEASE NOTE: the date for vancouver has changed to november 6th…
for additional information or to RSVP, please visit amandapalmer.net


since this is going to be such a small run, and so many of you amazing people won't be able to attend, we also decided to RECORD THE SHOWS, and CROWD-SOURCE THE FUNDING. only HERE on kickstarter can you pre-order and lock-in some really tasty rewards for helping take "An Evening With…" from a five-show tour most of you can't witness, to a worldwide release commemorating the whole shebang!!!

as you'll see to the right, we've put together a variety of incentives including:

  • a digital download of the recording (donation of $1 or more)
  • the limited edition, beautifully packaged, first-pressing of the compact disc set (signed, unsigned, or signed, personalized, and numbered)
  • a GORGEOUS print created by cynthia von buhler
  • first crack at tickets (almost a full two weeks ahead of public on-sales)
  • a super-limited-only-6-per-city-backer-reward where you'll get all the merch AND be invited to our soundcheck and an intimate meet-and-greet. (intimate as in we'll have extra time to talk and sign and take photos with you and your guest, not intimate like we're going to call off the show and go to a swank hotel with you)
  • a signed & numbered fine art print of us, taken by the amazing allan amato
  • our setlists from the shows (which we'll sign and doodle on, for you)
  • surprise gifts
  • and lots, lots, more

VERY IMPORTANT TO THOSE OF YOU WHO CAN'T COME TO A SHOW AND WANT A CD and/or POSTER: please make sure you include shipping in your donation amount if you are outside the United States! CANADIAN ORDERS (for physical merch)=ADD $5 USD / INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (for physical merch)=ADD $10 USD

have a look. it's all listed right over THERE

the above image is a mockup. final artwork subject to change, slightly…

and so you know, should we surpass our goal of $20,000, the quality of the products will simply go up and up. in other words: the more backers we get, the more beautiful and shiny the disc packaging and the poster printing will be, since we'll have more dough to throw at it.

but rather than bore you with WORDS, check out the video above. hopefully if nothing else, THAT encourages you to back this.

thank you, comrades…
hope to see you out there, soon.
