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.
The November 2006 issue (No. 329) of Record Collector (with Bruce Springsteen on the cover) features a major interview with Tori, in which she talks “in depth about her remastered catalogue”. The article is not available online. This magazine is a UK publication. If you can’t find the issue in a store near you, single issues can be purchased directly from the magazine.
UPDATE: A transcript is now available.
We’re happy to report that Brian Nash’s Boys For Pele show has sold out! Congratulations, Brian! As a result, a second show on the same night, October 2nd at 9:30 pm, as been added by The Duplex Cabaret, in New York City. Reservations are recommended and can now be made online.
Tori is scheduled to appear Thursday (tomorrow) morning on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean show sometime between 5:30 and 10 a.m. Thanks to Lauren for letting us know!

One truly regrets making the unfortunate decision to shell out $85.33 for expedited delivery of the B&N edition just to get the extra DVD now.
You know those days when you feel like putting your two cents in doesn’t really count for anything?
Well, this is not one of those days.
Plunk those pennies on the counter and head over to write your review of A Piano: The Collection. You can share your thoughts on a particular song or on the whole shebang. Whatever strikes your fancy.
You can also get to the reviews from our A Piano info page (which is helpfully linked in the right column … bonus points if you already knew that was there).
EverythingTori.com has added A Piano: The Collection to their Music gallery. Each of the five discs has a clickable tracklisting. Previously released songs, even if an alternate mix or remix, link to that song’s page from the album it was originally released on, but the lyrics and liner notes for the new songs and b-sides are now available. There are also photographs for each song from the collection’s included book. Thanks to Ben and lau for letting us know!
...And all through the host,
EverythingTori was stirring,
With news bits to post!
EverythingTori.com has been updated with a few last-minute odds and ends related to the impending release of A Piano: The Collection.
First, they’ve specified some international release dates for the boxed set:
September 27, 2006:Sweden
September 29, 2006: Germany, Italy, Netherlands
October 7: Australia
October 16, 2006: France
The late date in France is somewhat surprising given the mixed signals from Amazon.fr regarding pre-orders for the collection from them. Amazon.fr now shows the 26th as the release date—assuming I can decode enough French to understand “Date de sortie d’origine” to mean the release date. I’m not sure why September 22nd is listed in parenthesis following the words “CD Audio” though.
On a related note, Amazon.ca now indicates October 3rd will be the release date of A Piano in Canada.
Second, starting on September 26th, WindowsMedia will be offering a sampler listening party for A Piano and a video stream of Tori discussing “Walk To Dublin.” (Presumably, that video clip is from the exclusive Barnes & Noble bonus DVD.) MSN Music, mp3.com, and ARTISTDirect will also be hosting listening parties as well. Also, as was mentioned earlier today, AOL Music is streaming several tracks from the boxed set, including “Not David Bowie.”
Today is the final day of the three-week sneak preview leading up to the release of A Piano: The Collection. As promised, EverythingTori.com is offering up something really yummy: the much-anticipated debut of Zero Point. Head over to listen in Quicktime or Windows Media formats!
AOL’s Music News Blog is launching an all-new Tori Amos radio station on Oct. 5, and is asking fans to drop by and let them know which of Tori’s songs should be included.
In addition, this week the AOL Tori channel will be streaming A Piano: The Collection in its entirety! Swing on over to check it out.
The Fall 2006 issue of the Little Blue World fan-zine is complete and will be mailed out in late October. Some of the highlights featured in this issue include:
