Amanda Palmer is bringing her brand new tour ‘There Will Be No Intermission’ to Belfast’s Ulster Hall on 26 October 2019.
The tour coincides will her new Single Voicemail for Jill, the latest track from her forthcoming solo album There Will Be No Intermission.
Voicemail for Jill is a searing and stark, classically-tinged piano song inspired by Palmer’s lifelong role as both pro-choice activist and confidant for women (and men) who have gone through the complicated, often-hidden experience of choosing to have an abortion. The song, penned after a tour landed her in Dublin during the landmark referendum to legalise abortion, had been gestating for ages in her pile of song-drafts and was a “white whale of songwriting” according to Palmer, who has herself had three abortions and has “struggled for years to find the right way to write about the subject without sentimentality, preachiness or apology.”
Amanda Palmer’s first solo album in more than six years, There Will Be No Intermission is now available for sale. Alongside the album, Palmer is independently releasing an artbook of narrative photography to accompany the album’s release.
The touring show itself will feature Palmer on solo piano and ukulele, with no band accompaniment; a night of graphic, honest, and funny storytelling and songs that Palmer claims will be her “most human and vulnerable stage-show to date.”
This isn't a show to be missed and is set to be an awe-inspiring evening at Ulster Hall.
