“The Evening With Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer tour we did in 2011 was whatever happens when Amanda and I get together on a stage for two hours. Amanda's fans had to put up with the messy-haired Englishman reading them stories, and mine got to enjoy the beautiful lady singing them songs of angst, post-modernism and woe. Or possibly vice versa. Also, it was an awful lot of fun. I'm glad that people all over the world can now listen to it.” – Neil Gaiman
"These shows were very different beasts from the loud, crazed rock shows that I'm accustomed to...and also very different from the relatively well-behaved readings to which Neil is accustomed. Neil and I are both very close with our fanbases, and, even though there's quite a bit of crossover, the 2011 tour was a like one big, long reception in which our two fan-familes got to meet each other. We kept the venues cozy and seated, and made the nights feel like an after-hours salon more than a formal show. As Neil and I get closer to our fanbases online through blogging and tweeting, it was nice to spend some actual quality offline facetime with everybody. It provided some serious soul-food all around." – Amanda Palmer
Amanda Palmer is a Boston-based musician, force of nature, deliverer of an astonishing TED talk and occasionally one-half of The Dresden Dolls.

Neil Gaiman wrote Sandman, American Gods, Coraline and the Newbery Award winning The Graveyard Book. His recent novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and remained on the list for 20 weeks, to be replaced by his new book for children, Fortunately, the Milk.
