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.
According to VH1’s RockOnTV.com, Tori will appear on Late Night with David Letterman on May 3.
Rock on, Michael.
Miss Isabel actually has hair!
“Isabel, a photographer, is a reflection of Artemis and is the most outwardly political of the bunch. She opens the album with “Yo George,” a shout-out to our commander in chief, questioning what horribly dark road we’ve been led down and closes the CD with the anti-war anthem, ‘Dark Side of the Sun.’”
Listen to “Yo George” at Everything Tori.
(Thanks to Beverly for spotting this one so quickly!)
Cliff tipped us off to the fact that Ticketmaster has launched a page for the upcoming ADP tour listing several cities and the tantalizing promise that specific dates and venues — and, we’re guessing, on-sale dates — are coming soon. TM is also plugging the iTunes pre-order deal, which includes those pre-sale codes.
The cities Ticketmaster expects Tori to visit are:
Several of you pointed out this morning that both the standard and deluxe editions of American Doll Posse are available for pre-order on iTunes today, and shoppers can purchase “Big Wheel” there as of this morning.
Those who go in for the pre-order of either edition get “Big Wheel” now, and will receive the rest of the album’s tracks later, including “Miracle” — a bonus track we haven’t seen listed anywhere else — and access to a Ticketmaster pre-sale code, which is good for purchasing up to four tickets for upcoming Tori shows.
Edit: It looks like this offer is only being extended to fans on the US and Canada iTunes sites; folks at the UK site aren’t seeing listings for ADP or “Big Wheel” yet. However, folks in Italy — and perhaps other places in Europe, we haven’t heard — are able to buy “Bouncing off Clouds.”
Cheers to Kevin, Kat, Andre, Robbie, Robert, Adrian, Joshua, Kel, JD345, Fabz, Ursa, Christopher and Joe for letting us know!
Be on the Internets and head over to Radio Eins at 19:00 UTC (that’s 9pm in Berlin and 3pm Eastern/Noon Pacific for the Amurrricans) to listen to the live broadcast of the Tori Amos Radiokonzert from Berlin. Tori’s performance will start about 30 minutes into the program.
(Just click-y on the RealAudio icon in the upper-right of the page to listen live. Or click this link if you don’t want to wait.)
Thanks, Yannick and Doerthe!

Rodney was the first to let us know that “Big Wheel” has won a second time on the WTTS Cage Match. On Tuesday, “Big Wheel” goes for its third win facing Cowboy Junkies’ “Brand New World”. Same rules apply: two songs enter, only one leaves. Vote if you can!
Tori was the selected artist for this past week’s Down Time in the Sunday Times. Down Time features a “Culture iMix” — a recommend playlist — for an atist, including comments on why the songs were selected. The playlist is available on-line and can be purchased from iTunes. Thanks to matt for letting us know!
Viva is giving away tickets to a listening session on April 14th at a secret location in Utrecht where winners will get to hear the new album. (Folks may recall that April 14th is also the date that Tori will be in Utrecht for a session on Spijkers Met Koppen but it does not appear that these are the same things.) To win tickets to the Viva listening session, you must write a 3-5 line poem about one of the Posse members. Send in your entry via this form.
3 to 5 lines? That would mean haiku and limericks qualify! Are any of the Posse from Nantucket?
Update: Well, we thought they were going on sale, but we were sadly mistaken. Zeynep sets us straight: camping tickets for Masstival will go on-sale on April 11th and regular day tickets (either for a single day or for both days of the festival) will go on-sale on April 16th. Tickets will be available at Biletix (that much, at least, we got right). Note: on May 16th, prices for day tickets increase 10YTL so it pays to get them early!
“I think one of the better things I did was to play kooky for the Brits because they needed that. In the Nineties there weren’t a lot of American singer-songwriters breaking through here. Brits traditionally do like eccentricity and so I allowed that to flourish, and look, there are a lot of other artists that didn’t have the success that I have.”
(So the “k” word is all your fault, Great Britain!)
