*date changed to Nov 6

Author Neil Gaiman and musician Amanda Palmer are embarking on a brief co-headline tour of the West Coast this fall, starting with a Halloween engagement at Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles and ending Nov 10 with a Vancouver concert.

The newlywed couple are billing the event as An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer and promise an unusual and intimate few hours of spoken word, songs, stories, chats with the audience, and more than a few surprises. The stage will contain a piano, a ukulele, two microphones, and (Amanda claims) a few comfortable twitter-sourced armchairs.

The couple is also Kickstarter-ing a project in tandem with the tour through which fans can purchase VIP seating and access to soundcheck. Also, fans who are unable to get to the limited run of dates can still get access to an audio recording from the tour and merchandise. In 48 hours the Kickstarter campaign has more than tripled their funding goal with more than 1,200 backers, raising nearly $70,000 with just over 3 weeks remaining.
