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.
We’re behind on site updates (obvs!) but here are a couple time-sensitive news items (and bear with us, we should get caught up with everything else later today).
First, SPIN is giving away five pairs of tickets to Tuesday evening’s in-store at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. To get in on that contest, you’ll need to follow them on Twitter and retweet this tweet. Winners will be selected later today, so be quick!
Fortunately, if you don’t win passes — or aren’t lining up tomorrow morning to pre-order the album in person to get a wristband — you can still see the performance as SPIN will be live-streaming the event on SPIN.com starting from 7pm on Tuesday evening.
Second, Tori will be on Soundcheck on WNYC this afternoon. Listen live on the web at 2pm. The performance will be broadcast during the program which airs at 9pm on WNYC 93.9 FM and online at wnyc.org.
Update: The live session is running behind but should be starting soon.
Update: The stream is under way at 2:15 pm Eastern!
Update: Both of these interviews are available online to listen to. The BBC Radio Stoke one is on iPlayer and starts around the 30 minute mark. Meanwhile, an extended version of the Minster FM interview is available for streaming and download from the Listen Again page.
Just a quick update to let everyone know that two pre-recorded radio spots will be broadcast today. First, at 1:30 PM BST (about 10 minutes from when this is being written!), James Watt will air his chat with Tori on BBC Radio Stoke. Second, her conversation with Alex Brown will be aired on Minster FM at 2:30 PM BST (about a hour and 10 minute hence). Both stations stream online and BBC Stoke, at least, archives their programs you should be able to catch them after the fact as well.
The kind people at C à vous have shared footage of Tori performing “Trouble’s Lament” on the program yesterday evening. It’s been posted at Dailymotion and “Youtube”;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SH69XxWwHuo. Fortunately, the latter can be viewed by all — enjoy!
Another week brings another teaser clip — the fourth — from what we presume to the be the interview included with the Unrepentant Geraldines bonus DVD. In this very brief snippet, Tori addresses her need to experiment on the new record and her hope for how the songs on it will be heard.
The broadcast date has not been announced but the show airs on Saturday evenings from 11:00 pm. Fortunately, the program is archived so once we know the air date, anyone who misses it should be able to give it a listen afterwards.
Thanks again to Marie for the tip!
As one can tell from the picture Tori posted yesterday on Instagram, etc., she’s in Paris promoting the album. She swung by the studios of France Inter today for a solo piano performance of “Trouble’s Lament” and a wee interview on On va tour y passer with André Manoukian.
Update: Or just listen to it here:
Also, as Clément and Tori Amos France informed us, Tori will be on C à vous on France 5 tonight! That television program starts at 1900h.
Update: Video of the appearance on C à vous should be available on Wednesday, courtesy of the program.
Merci beaucoup to Clément and Marie for the help!
From the where’s-Tori-today department, it’s an assortment of behind-the scenes photos taken at The Diner in Islington, London where a video for “Trouble’s Lament” was being filmed today.
Looking forward to seeing how this turns out!
Only one radio appearance was broadcast today — after the past few days, that almost feels like we’re being gypped! But seriously, BBC Radio Ulster’s Gerry Kelly’s chat with Tori about her relationship with Ireland, her family history, and the upcoming tour.
You can listen to it on Radio Ulster’s website for the next week — Tori comes on around the 16 minute 40 second mark. We’ve also added their chat to Soundcloud if that’s more your speed.
If you’re not already, keep an eye on the Tori Amos Instagram (as well as the other social media channels) as there’s been a steady stream of photos from Berlin, London and, we expect, where ever the promotion and tour for Unrepentant Geraldines takes her.
Today’s offerings did not disappoint — one gives us a behind-the-scenes look on a photo and television shoot in London earlier today while the other is, as you may have guessed from our puntastic article title, a selfie with Tash!
P.S. Please don’t hate us for saying “selfie.”
Several more radio spots promoting the new record have taken place since we last posted.
First, she called into Chris and Emma at Breakfast on Gaydio on Wednesday, April 15th. We’re earlier risers but was still a little too early in the morning for us in the States so we missed it but the appearance should be included in their podcast next week.
Second, there was a spot on The Tony Fenton Show on TodayFM, also on Wednesday, the 15th. Their rather relaxed conversation, in which she indicated there could be a Piano Bar component to the upcoming tour, is available for streaming up on the radio station’s website:
Third, a pre-recorded conversation with The Breeze’s Damien St. John was sprinkled throughout his program on Wednesday evening. In addition to explaining the title of the record and talking about the upcoming tour, she also commiserated with Damien about sexist yoga mats. Go figger! Fortunately, the full clip has been posted on their website:
Fourth, Celebrity Radio’s Alex Belfield posted an interview with Tori that took place earlier this week. Oddly, he asks no questions about the new record but there is a fair amount of interesting discussion about other topics ranging from songwriting to her relationship with the piano to her relationship with her audience. It’s a bit of a strange chat in light of the promotional push for the new record but perhaps more interesting for it.
Updating a previous interview, Fubar Radio uploaded a couple clips from the interview to Soundcloud:
Finally, here’s a recap of the upcoming radio spots we know about. If you know of any others, please let us know!
