If there’s anything that can bring a band back together after two years and a few interesting side projects, it’d have to be tin. That’s right, in honor of their 10th anniversary as a unit, The Dresden Dolls (aka Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione) are reuniting as a band for a “10th Bandiversary Halloween Show” in New York City, and a subsequent tour, reports TwentyFourBit. Yes, tin is that magical.
The band, which announced their plans via a video you can check out below, will come together at Irving Plaza for a show that is sure to be filled with creepy punk cabaret music and “interesting” costume choices by audience members. From there, it’s several shows across the U.S., including gigs in New Orleans for a Gulf oil spill benefit show for BTNEP, Lexington, KY, Chicago, IL, and a series of shows in Texas. Full tour dates are below.
Tickets for the Halloween show go on sale September 9th; head here for more info. Tickets for the remaining shows can be bought at the individual venue’s websites. As always, stay tuned for more reunion news and tour updates as they’re announced.
