THIS IS IT.
THE DRESDEN DOLLS are returning to LONDON this HALLOWEEN for two special 18th-Bandiversay shows at Troxy on OCTOBER 30th and 31st. a secret little warm-up show somewhere tiny tiny will likely be added and i'll keep you in the loop about that.
this is troxy, it's GORGEOUS:
our last shows in the UK/Europe were in 2006! and our last shows in london were two legendary nights at the roundhouse, which we filmed for a DVD. it's been TWELVE YEARS. goddamn.
the troxy fits 3,000 people, which means there are only a total of 6,000 tickets. and that's IT. no more shows in europe or UK will be announced - this is all. they will FLY.
the shows will have a ticket pre-sale starting on at 1pm BST local london time THURSDAY, MAY 17th. to get the pre-sale password, make sure you're signed up to The Dresden Dolls email list by wednesday (the cut off time to sign up is 11:59pm BST). a heads up - there is a limited number of tickets allocated for the pre-sale.
we JUST started a SPECIFIC email list for DRESDEN-DOLLS-ONLY NEWS, here:
to avoid confusion: if you're on the AFP email list, i'll almost always be sending out all dolls news there too...so if you already get emails from me, don't worry too much. but if you're SUPER HARDCORE and you want to be on both lists, knock yourself out!!! a reminder, my solo list is here. http://amandapalmer.net/emaillist
some background on that: after i went solo, the dresden dolls list became my list, and now has over 150,000 subscribers (!), which is why i send mailings only when i 100% gotta and do most of my rambling on patreon. 150,000 is a lot of peoples inboxes to annoy.
brian pointed out that it's really only fair to start separating out our entities now that I am a Thing, He is a Thing, He has a Band, and on and on, and he's right. so let the healthy compartmentalizing begin!
after the pre-sale, the remaining tickets will go on sale to the public on MONDAY, MAY 21st. at 10am BST local london time (public tickets and more show information is available here: https://www.axs.com/uk/series/6408/the-dresden-dolls-tickets and as always, the latest links and details are up on the dolls' shows page: http://dresdendolls.com/shows). a heads up that if the pre-sale sells out, the show itself is not yet sold out.
if you're a guest-list tier patron ($75 or over), standby for more information on how this will work. these shows are small and they will sell out quickly, so to be eligible to claim a guest list spot you must already be in one of the guest list tiers at the time this show is announced (today).
THAT'S IT FOR NOW.
