Amanda Palmer announces tour, playing Webster Hall, giving direct ticketing a try (dates)
Amanda Palmer in Brooklyn in May, 2012 (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Amanda Palmer, who has been very busy so far this summer, has just announced a fall tour including an NYC date on September 11 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, July 13 at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday at noon. All dates are listed below.
HOWEVER. The outside the box thinker that she is, Amanda is trying the Louis CK route this time, selling at least some of the tickets for this tour directly through her website. We’ll let Amanda explain:
The huge, beautiful & bizarre tour that we’re building all summer is HITTING THE ROAD in september. And….scream it in the streets: WE HAVE DIRECT TICKETING!!! I’ve been hoping and praying to be able to do this for YEARS – to sell tickets directly to my audience without ticketmaster and other middle-people. I still have to play ball with the giant system of venues and promotors and the world at large, BUT i’ve at least managed to free up about 10-20% of all venue tickets to sell direct to you guys.
These tickets I’m selling directly from this website will probably disappear fast. Almost all of our shows this summer sold out within a day – some within a few hours. But if you do try and get tickets on monday and there aren’t any more left, don’t fret. A lot more tickets will go on sale on friday july 13th. as soon as we have direct links to all of the shows, we’ll add them to my shows page.
I’m hoping this works out. it’s an experiment. we’ll see.
Tickets through Amanda’s website went on sale earlier today and the Webster ones are already gone but, as she wrote above, there will still be tickets available through Ticketmaster later this week.
