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.

BN.com has raised the price for pre-orders of their exclusive six-disc edition of A Piano: The Collection to $67.48 ($60.73 for members). That’s still a 10% discount (19% overall for members) from the list price of $74.98 so not too shabby…but unfortunate for folks like me who were lazy and didn’t snap it up at the lower price.
Thanks to Steve for letting us know about this!

Tori Amos Seizes Her ‘Piano’ With Both Hands
EverythingTori.com is now streaming the unedited single version of “Crucify”, the second full preview track from A Piano: The Collection.
Following up on a previous post, it appears that Tori will be included in the Between The Covers television program. According to the program description, Tori’s cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” will be part of the show. It will air several times over the next week:
Interestingly, the program description mentions a DVD release in addition to the CD, something that we have not heard about previously. One presumes that the television program is either clips from the DVD or that the program will become the DVD release.
“WHEN IT COMES TO VICES…I firmly believe that anything can be a vice no matter how self-disciplined you believe you are. I have no illusions, I can be seduced.” —Tori Amos
The following article appears in the October, 2006, issue of Mojo magazine, the one with Elton John on the cover. Much thanks to Anni for transcribing this for us!
