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.

Mina writes in to let us all know that Toril will be at French radio station RTL2 sometime today. This information was posted on programmer Zegut’s blog where he says she will be doing an acoustic performance during the afternoon on the 17th. Mina speculates that the performance will be on his program Pop Rock Station since he posted the news.
UPDATE: Zegut posted on his blog to announce that Tori was in the RTL2 studios today recording a session for Zacoustics. The session will be aired on May 3rd and he will be posting pictures from Tori’s visit tomorrow, presumably on his blog. Pop Rock Station airs from 9pm to Midnight.
Newsday’s Glenn Gamboa has heard “Big Wheel” and likes what he hears:
Tori Amos’ new single, “Big Wheel” (Epic), is also heavy on the percussion, a bit of a roots-rocker crossed with KT Tunstall, until it takes a wacky Tori twist and she throws in a drum countdown and naughty bridge before the self-proclaimed hot mama gets back to business, making “Big Wheel” her most likable work in years.

Someone has since added a clip of Tori also performing “Almost Rosey”:
Thanks tmosaori and speedbliss!
Tori is scheduled to appear on the UK television program Loose Women Thursday, April 19 at 12:30 p.m. It’s unclear whether she will perform or chat with the hosts, but fans are speculating it’ll be a little bit of both.
In other UK news, radio listeners can vote to earn “Bouncing off Clouds” a place on Steve Lamaq’s “Rebel Playlist,” a regular feature on the 6Music channel. Three tracks are nominated each week and the winner will be played in full on the show.
Cheers to Mel/deadcanary, Lucy, Heather, Agnetha, and Rich for the news!
Eagle-eyed Liana noticed that Epic’s Web site is offering a contest where visitors click on the TV graphic to see the video for “Big Wheel” and could potentially win a copy of American Doll Posse. Clicking on the TV doesn’t really do anything at the moment — but Yahoo claims they are going to premiere the video on Wednesday, April 18, so fans should be able to see it soon, one way or another. Stay tuned.
2007, Australian radio station JJJ’s new music program, aired a couple tracks from American Doll Posse on Sunday, April 15th. The program kicked off with “Big Wheel” and closed with what appears to be the premiere of “Body and Soul”. The program is archived on the web for the next week and can be streamed in Real Audio and Windows Media. Cue to about two minutes before the end of the stream to tune into “Body and Soul”. Unfortunately, the timing on their archive is a little off and the streams end before the end of the song, but the minute or two that can be heard is very tantalizing!
According to Ta Nea, one of the leading Greek newspapers, Tori (aka Τόρι Έιμος in Greece) will be performing in Athens, Greece on July 17th. Thanks to trickster on the YesSaid forum for pointing this out!
Martijn had the opportunity to interview Tori for the magazine Gay & Night and has posted about their conversation on the atforumz Main Tori Forum. Head on over to read all of his impressions but the key news is that Tori wants to record every show from the coming tour and make them available for download and, for the ten best shows, master them properly for release on CD.
The interview will be published in the June issue of Gay & Night and an edited version will be posted on GAY.NL around the release date of the album.
Tori was on the Dutch radio program Met het Oog op Morgen on NOS Radio 1 today. She performed two songs — “Father’s Son” and “Leather” — and also spoke with host Stephan Sanders about the origins and natures of American Doll Posse and the upcoming tour. The entire show is archived in Windows Media and is also available as a podcast. Tori’s first segments starts just before the 19 minute mark and the second segment around 33 minutes in.
Update: Frank has added mp3s of this performance to the same page as his recording of the Spijkers met Koppen appearance.
Update: the show has been added to the program’s podcast. Download the mp3 here.
