There will be no intermission during the show.

Punk cabaret legend Amanda Palmer has revealed she’ll be swinging past Arts Centre Melbourne as part of her international tour.

Palmer released her third solo studio album, There Will Be No Intermission, back in March to critical acclaim (including taking out Beat’s Best New Album). The grim LP tackles questions on life, death, grief and how to understand it all. Her Melbourne show promises a night of graphic, honest and funny storytelling, combined with performances from the new record.

“The last seven years have been a relentless parade of grief, joy, birth and death and all of it has galvanized me to the core: as a writer, as a woman, as an artistic servant,’’ Palmer said in a statement.

During her time Down Under, Palmer will also be making appearances at a number of festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, two nights at Adelaide Fringe and an intense residency at Mona Foma.

Amanda Palmer will be coming to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Wednesday January 22. Tickets are on sale now via the venue website.
