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.
On Friday afternoon, in New York City, Tori met a very special group of people: the PS22 Chorus. This was a dream come true for Gregg Breinberg and the kids, and was obviously quite special for Tori as well.
Oh, I do need to leak something to you … I think I am writing a musical! I’m gushing but I’m under fucking lock and key.
Armen sent in this candid interview Tori did with Me-me-me.tv:
The fun never stops, does it? CrystallineColey just sent us this clip from Tori’s “Big Wheel” performance on Regis & Kelly this morning (technically, today it was Kelly & Anderson). Mind you, this is the abbreviated version — without the “MILF” bridge. Afterward, she explains the chicken she’s holding on the cover of American Doll Posse. Well, that clears that up, doesn’t it?
“Father’s Son” was among the songs Tori performed the other night at the Sirius radio taping; Franco was good enough to post a video clip of her performance on YouTube. Check it out:
Thanks to James, we know that American Doll Posse was reviewed in the UK Observer Sunday:
With her daughter nearly grown, war and femininity replace fairy stories and songs about orange knickers on Amos’s ninth studio album. The obligatory concept endures. This time, the music is channelled through five female characters representing different aspects of her personality and, with an eclectic 20 tracks, there are nearly as many musical styles on offer. Country hoedown (‘Big Wheel’), trance (‘Bouncing Off Clouds’) and heavy rock (‘Teenage Hustling’) are all united by Amos’s exaggerated American twang. Some of the power rock moments feel misjudged, but this is, none the less, a mammoth achievement.
OK, so technically we don’t know how American Doll Posse is doing on the charts yet, but what we do know, thanks to tmosaori and Ryan, is that the album is #10 on iTunes’ sales charts this week.
Meanwhile, Ivan let us know that “Big Wheel” has moved up the AAA charts from 19 to 12. Mama got it all in hand, indeed.
For those of you who didn’t catch Tori and her boys playing “Big Wheel” last night on Letterman, don’t wig out. Jason is here to rescue you with this clip he spotted on YouTube:
Trent, publisher of PITNB, managed to take this cute video at the release party on May 1st. Tori did an “it’s just me” improv about being on her own without the boys or the posse, then went into “Almost Rosey.”
Lauren alerted us that Pink Is The New Blog recently announced the winners of the Epic Records/PITNB photo contest. (Lauren is holding Under The Pink in her winning entry.)
... there’s no word on which [doll] is responsible for the horrific album cover, which looks like something you’d get made at one of those record-your-own-song kiosks at Great Adventure.
Idolator recently posted a fairly scathing take on ADP. Read it here or hop on over to their blog to see the snarky follow-up comments.
