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.
In the third week of the sneak preview leading up to the release of A Piano: The Collection, EverythingTori is offering video footage of Tori discussing “Zero Point.” Swing on over to check out this nifty stream in Quicktime or Windows Media formats!
“I only have a certain kind of Bush, Simon, not the kind that would win a presidency in America.”—Tori Amos

Tori Amos Straps on Her High Heels
For your listening pleasure, here are the two interview segments from Tori’s chat with BBC Radio 2’s Simon Mayo earlier today (technically “yesterday” for some of you by now).

The October, 2006, issue of Q magazine includes an additional mag titled 20 years of classic music photography, Q Idols.
Included is John Stoddart’s 1994 cover photo of PJ Harvey, Björk, and Tori (seen below). Looking back, Stoddart had this to say about the experience:
“Bjork, PJ Harvey and Tori Amos represented a new wave of female rock. They hadn’t met each other before this shoot. I thought it was going to be a real number having these three egos in one studio, but they couldn’t have been nicer to each other. There was no prima donna behaviour, and they all swapped numbers afterwards. My only regret is that Bjork had the worst hairdo of her career at the time. Look at it – it’s horrible.”
This and other photos from the Q Idols collection will be on exhibit in the Getty Images Gallery at 46 Eastcastle Street in London from September 25th-October 6th (or, if that’s a bit too far to travel, take a virtual tour of the exhibit from the comfort of your own home). Just think though … if you go in person, you can take A Piano in your iPod as background music!
(Many thanks to Saar for being vigilant, as ever.)
“Music isn’t a nine to five job—it’s something that is in you, a state of being.”—Tori Amos
The following interview appears in the September 2006 issue of Clash. The interview is not available on their website but you can find information for subscribing or ordering back issues there if you’re interested in a print copy. Thanks to ordbok from @forumz for transcribing and posting.
Tori made an appearance on the PRI radio program Studio 360 on September 15, 2006 where she talked with host Kurt Anderson about myth and motherhood and mentioned that there will be a “big world tour” in 2007. As it says in the program description:
She speaks in delicious metaphors. She’s funny, self-aware and she doesn’t hold back her opinions. But has singer—songwriter Tori Amos really been around long enough for a career—retrospective box set? She tells Kurt Andersen why women need to learn about mythological archetypes, and how becoming a mother has changed her.
The program originates at WNYC in New York City where it was aired today but is carried by many other public radio stations across the United States over the next week or, if you are feeling impatient, just stream the interview on the web. It is also available as a podcast.
Thanks to Paul for this transcript!
Yes, we know: stuff is getting out there, you naughty little donkeys.
However, as a news site dedicated to bringing fans reliable information while not infringing upon artist rights, it is Undented’s policy not to post links to sources that we know to be offering unauthorized downloads or streams of Tori’s official recordings.
So while we do still want to be informed about these things, if we can determine that a source is unauthorized, we will not report on it out of respect for Tori and her work.
