Amanda Palmer performs at BBC’s David Bowie ‘Prom’, leaves garland on London street for fans


If you’re in London, right now, you may want to head over to the corner of Camden High Street and Inverness in the neighborhood of Camden. Amanda Palmer has left you a present.

It’s the piece of garland Palmer wore over the weekend at the BBC David Bowie “Prom”, a sold out orchestral gala concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall that honored the late musical icon. The evening featured performances from John Cale, Marc Almond, Laura Mvula, and others. covering Bowie songs reinvented with help from the Berlin-based musician collective Stargaze and its artistic director André de Ridder.

Palmer dropped her tweet a few minutes ago, so the garland might already be gone.

Meanwhile, Palmer’s Dresden Dolls are reuniting for a few shows this summer, including an August 26 homecoming gig at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. Score tickets here.

And here is Palmer and Hannon singing Bowie’s 1976 track “Station To Station” at this past weekend’s Prom.
