Dresden Dolls star Amanda Palmer has been arrested in Amsterdam, Holland after staging an impromptu gig in the city.
The singer announced via Twitter.com that she would be holding an unscheduled show in Dam Square on Wednesday evening (11May11) and asked her devotees to show up to watch her set.
But soon after starting her performance, Palmer was surrounded by police officers and taken into custody.
She was released on Wednesday night (11May11) with a fine and later apologised to fans for the short gig.
In a post on Twitter, she writes, "Dear Amsterdam, sorry I got arrested and the gig ended prematurely. The police took my belongings and put me in a holding jail cell and after a while let me go with a fine."
