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.
Nadia sent us a link to Slate.com’s take on ADP, which mostly consists of a roundup of other critics’ take on the album.
Abbey, Frank and Barbara let us know that Tori will appear on the Graham Norton Show on May 10 at 10 p.m. on BBC2 in the UK. The show will re-air, in uncut form, May 13 at
11:15 p.m. 10:30pm .
Kendra and Jes wrote in to tell us that the May 3-17, 2007, issue of Rolling Stone (issue 1025/1026, its 40th Anniversary issue) lists “Yo George” among “Ten New Anti-Bush Tracks.” The track made number 4 on the list, and the article cites this quote from the Yo-Georgester herself: “Something in me refused to stand by anymore and watch the war continue without doing anything about it.”
Tori and American Doll Posse will be featured this week on Studio 360, a program that airs at 8 a.m. out of New York Public Radio. Those who can’t hear it live, either in New York or on their NPR affiliate, can listen online or download a podcast. Amy, thanks for the tip!
Folks who purchased American Doll Posse through iTunes began receiving their tour pre-sale codes yesterday (finally!). One bit of useful information is that the pre-sales will start sometime in June, so it might be time to thaw out your credit cards and make sure your mouse-clicking fingers are in tip-top shape. Alfred and Andre, thanks for sending this our way!
And so it came to pass at the American Doll Posse release party in New York City on Tuesday night. Franco managed to make off with one of the Signature Drink Menus from the event and scanned it for us. (And we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s off trying to re-create some of these for himself at home right now. They sound yummy!)
We especially love how the “The Pip Apple Pucker-Christi” looks like it says “The Pip Apple Fucker-Christi.” We’ll have four of those, please.
Kim and Erin wrote in to say that American Doll Posse is getting a lot of attention on WYEP 91.3fm in Pittsburgh. ADP is the CD Of The Week, and DJs did commentary throughout the day on Monday to introduce it. They will be playing various tracks from the album all week.
Rosemary Welsch, the afternoon Mix host, had this to say about the album…
Not really an “edition,” more a marketing glitch really…
According to Chris K, Circuit City’s Sunday ad said they would be offering a 2-CD version of ADP. Chris went in and bought a copy, but it didn’t have 2-CDs, even though the CD was labeled as having 2-CDs. The in-store staff didn’t know anything about it. I returned it.
It sounds as if the standard edition got erroneously labelled as a “2-CD edition” somewhere along the way. We’re not sure if this is happening in more than one store, or if it was just that one location. But it’s just a normal single-CD copy.
Jessie, Jen T, and Jes wrote to tell us about the Target edition of ADP.
According to Jes:
“Confirmed. Target does have American Doll Posse with a poster. However for the frugal collectors looking for something special, be warned the poster is actually folded up in the jewel aase, heavily-creased, about the size of a standard piece of computer paper. The creases detract from the image, making it more like an extra piece of the jewel case packaging. If you’re really looking for something special, the Special Edition is the way to go.”
So far, it seems this poster (or posters, we’re not sure whether there’s more than one version) is simply some variation of the album cover.
Roel tells us that over at USAToday.com, a photo of Tori (at the ADP release party) is #11 in their Day In Celebrities gallery for May 2nd.
Then, if you click on the “Listen Up” next to the photo, you’re taken to an article by Ken Barnes that contains the following review of ADP...
