Provocative US singer Amanda Palmer is set to perform in Israel on October 23 at Tel Aviv's legendary Barby Club. Tickets are on sale for NIS 149.

Palmer, who has a diehard following of fans from her time in the band The Dresden Dolls, will bring her unique form of pop to Israel for a one-off show.

She released her first solo studio album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer, in September 2008 and later that year she embarked on a European tour.

Palmer is known for relying on networking and staying in close communication with her fans via Twitter and a blog of her own.  Her album Theater is Evil was completely financed by her fans. About  $1.2 million were raised after she announced her intentions via the crowd-sourcing platform Kickstarter.

Warning: Video contains nudity and strong language

The US singer is no stranger to controversy. In response to a report in British newspaper The Daily Mail that claimed "Amanda's bra rode up while her shirt opened, leaving her wardrobe malfunction on show for all to see," Palmer performed a specially-written song at the Roundhouse in July 2013 and during the performance, she took off her clothes and continued the rest of the song in the nude.
