During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
Tune in to TBS tonight, Thursday, July 24th, at 11:00 PM Eastern / 10:00 PM Central to catch the Raisin Girl in the Team CoCo Puffs as Tori is the musical guest on Conan! (We may have forgotten to post about this when we found out but we’re not forgetting to remind you about it…and we won’t forget to watch it either! Pinky swear!)
Thanks to Lorna, Jennifer and Matt for passing this along!
The setlist for last night’s show at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles has been posted! We won’t spoil the surprises — just go look and bask in the glow!
Update: The Live Nation pre-sale for this show is underway. No password required but you must be registered with Live Nation to buy tickets in this pre-sale.
Update: Yep, Live Nation has clarified their listing and our guess was correct: Live Nation pre-sale on Wednesday from 10:00 AM AEST, Ticketmaster pre-sale on Friday from 10:00 AM AEST, and general sale next Monday from 10:00 AM AEST.
So, while we were distracted by oh, something shiny, Live Nation Australia & New Zealand went and added a second show in Sydney, Australia to their listing. This second show is on Wednesday, November 12th and is also with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House.
The listing on Live Nation is a bit confusing as far as ticket sale dates in that it shows a pre-sale on July 25th and general sales on July 23rd and 28th. This show is not on Ticketmaster yet so can’t cross-reference but we’re assuming Live Nation’s sales dates will probably be a Live Nation pre-sale on the 23rd, a Ticketmaster pre-sale on the 25th and the general sale on the 28th. But we shall see…
Thanks to Mario for the tip!
Update: If you missed it (like we somehow managed to), you can listen to the whole appearance, which includes a chat with host Webster and daughter Tash and performances of “Silent All These Years,” “Wild Way,” and “Oysters,” via KFOG’s Soundcloud:
Earlier today, Tori recorded a small set as part of KFOG’s Private Concerts series and word just went out via Tori’s social media channels that it will be broadcast today at 5:00 PM Pacific Time (in about 10 minutes from when this article gets posted!).
Listen to KFOG with old-fangled terrestrial radio at 104.5 FM in San Francisco and 97.7 FM in San Jose. You can also listen online via their live stream. If you have any trouble with that one, try using TuneIn’s stream — we found that to work a little better in our quick evaluation.
Tune into a special Tori performance TODAY on
KFOGRadio</a> 104.5 FM San Francisco, 97.7 FM San Jose or <a href="http://t.co/BATWdV9qxp">http://t.co/BATWdV9qxp</a> at 5:00 PM PST!</p>— tori amos (toriamos) July 21, 2014
Looks like KINK archives many of these performances so if one were to miss the live stream, one should be able to give it a listen later on…
Update: KINK/The Bing Lounge haven’t uploaded their audio/video yet but here’s a capture of yesterday’s stream.
The Sydney Symphony have invited me to play with them and that’s what the Sydney Opera House show in November will be. I’ll be playing with them for part of it and then it will be me doing this one woman show for the other part of it. I’m so excited. When they invited me I just started jumping up and down.
In a lengthy interview for Renowned for Sound, Brendon Veevers got the chance to speak with Tori while she was in Istanbul for the European tour about the new album, working with her husband in the studio, life in Cornwall, her creative process, and her approach to touring. She also reveals that the show with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra which kicks off the Australian tour was the SSO’s idea! Hmmmm! strokes chin thoughtfully
I don’t cancel. I’m not known for doing that. I don’t play for Government anywhere, I play for people. The Kiev people had asked me to come, they’d come to visit me in Europe and said, ‘Please come’, and so I wasn’t going to cancel!
In an interview for The AU phoned in from Istanbul, Tori spoke to Sosefina Fuamoli about Unrepentant Geraldines, the cancelled show in Kiev, her foray into Moscow and the impact of turning 50, and the coming tour in Australia.
Well, you can’t not do [Conchita Wurst’s “Rise Like A Phoenix” and t.A.T.u’s “Not Gonna Get Us”] without knowing what it can mean. I mean I’m 50, I’m not completely naive! You can’t be coy about it. To play a t.A.T.u. song, a lesbian anthem, in Moscow — you’ve gotta grab it with both hands, because if you don’t, it’s not going to work.
In a phoner from Turkey for news.com.au, Tori talked about the upcoming Australian shows, the tour so far, and the intersection of family and music in her life and tells the story of her performance of a t.A.T.u. song in Moscow, including an unexpected punchline about who was on Crocus City Hall’s stage the next morning. (Hint: it’s ironic!)
Coinciding with this morning’s announcement about her Australian tour in November, Tori did a couple phone-in interviews for ABC radio stations in Adelaide and Melbourne. First, she spoke with Libbi Gorr on 774 ABC Melbourne’s Breakfast and then, on 891 ABC Adelaide’s Breakfast, she chatted with Sonya Feldoff.
The former is available online for your streaming pleasure but the latter is not — at least not yet. Hopefully it will be added soon!
There are five stops on the swing down under:
November 11 – Sydney Opera House, Sydney with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra!
November 15 – Palais Theatre, Melbourne
November 16 – Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide
November 18 – Riverside Theatre @ PCEC, Perth
November 21 – QPAC Concert Hall, Brisbane
Yes, that’s right: for the concert in Sydney, Tori will be accompanied by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, giving Australia a taste of 2012’s Gold Dust orchestral performances! Very nifty!
Tickets for all shows go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 18th with dreaded pre-sales taking place for each on Monday, July 14th. Exact times for all sales are listed in LiveNation.co.au and in our Tour section.
Thanks to @sharon and Daniel for the heads up — while we were busy dozing off during the Netherlands/Argentina match.
