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.
Tickets for the July 21st concert at Ra’anana Amphitheatre in Israel are on-sale now at www.tkts.co.il. Thanks to Matan for passing along that information!
The rumors about a green screen contest are true!
Well, sorta… ToriAmos.com has announced a contest to create a video for “Big Wheel”. At that page you will find multiple-angle performance footage and other “digital assets” which you can use (or not) to create a video for the song. Completed videos should be uploaded to YouTube and submitted to Epic. The winning video will be posted on ToriAmos.com and its director will be flown, with a friend, to one of the concerts on Tori’s upcoming US tour. (As you might guess from the prize, the full contest rules indicate that only US citizens residing within the country are eligible.) The contest ends June 14th.
Matt tipped us off to his review of American Doll Posse, which ran in Sunday’s Home News Review “Teen Scene” section:
“I’m coming after America’s daughters,” says Amos, “and I’m convinced that not all of them are obsessed with the circumference of their navel.”
Pete tipped us off to this article, which ran in today’s UK newspaper, The Independent:
Nylon.TV caught up with Tori just after her visit with the PS22 Chorus and got her to chat about a number of topics, including the state of American politics, and the joy of hearing the kids sing her songs. Gregg tipped us off to this one:
Jamee pointed out that Rolling Stone has finally put in their two cents’ worth on American Doll Posse, giving it 3 stars out of 5:
First date: There was this cute boy, he was 13 and I was 12. I think we double-dated and went to the movies. I just remember going to the movies so that the guy could put his arm around me — that was the whole point. Afterwards we went on a picnic on these grounds with woods in the back. So I thought what a great idea to go and have this picnic, and little did I know, until we left, we were on the grounds of an insane asylum.
Jamee sent us this fascinating article from VH1.com that offers up several bits of trivia about Tori’s life, including favorite sandwiches and a run-in with Elton John.
Shannon tipped us off to this detailed review of American Doll Posse that first ran in the (Madison, Wis.) Badger Herald and then was released on U-Wire, the newswire service for university newspapers.
[Tash is] a film buff, so she watches movies and she starts playing the scenes from the movies on her keyboard. She’ll start changing it, saying, “I think it would have been better like this.” I’m not a good parent if I don’t support her, but I’m certainly not Mama Rose.
Roel forwarded us this interview with Tori from HX.com, in which Tori talks about Tash, feminism, and beaded jumpsuits. Check it out.
All this month, you can catch the 1992 version of Tori on Later With Jools Holland on On Demand. The show opens with Tori and Jools sitting side-by-side at the piano, jamming [along with several other musicians] on the rockabilly intro. Other guests include Matthew Sweet and Morrissey. Tori sings “Me And A Gun.”
Boy, this brings back memories!
The program is under Music > concert.tv > Later with Jools > Tori Amos & Others and is available through May 31.
Good catch, Rita.
