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 edition of Liz Smith’s column published in the, as I understand it, March 9th edition of the Star-Ledger included this little blurb:
Fans of singer Tori Amos—emotionally intense cult star deluxe—can expect a new album coming in April, titled “American Doll Posse.” And Tori has a real doll posse working with her on this disc—four well-known female musicians. One is brunette, two are blonde and there’s a redhead too. Amos won’t give out the names, but insists they are “trailblazers, representing the many facets of a woman.”
The erroneous release date for the album aside, this is quite intriguing and the first we’ve heard about potential collaboration on this record. Are these fellow songwriters? Or just session musicians? Or perhaps personas that she is assuming for some of the songs?
I have not been able to find an on-line copy of the article, despite the fact that Smith’s column is syndicated to many newspapers, but jump the cut to see a scan of the article, thanks to bonnie77. Thanks also to Fabz for alerting us to this tidbit as well!
June 24 — Budapest, Hungary
You’ve been bouncing off the walls for days, sweating and wondering: Is. It. True? Let there be light! A reliable source has verified that this is indeed the 20-song tracklisting for American Doll Posse.

Let the happydancing commence.
Several people have written in to say there’s a new song, “Secret Spill” [sic], up on everyone’s favorite site, Promosquad. None of us here have been able to pull it up, but enough people have written about it that we we wanted to mention it so that those of you with full heads of hair can go looking for it. We don’t have any left to tear out.
As part of their celebration of Women’s History Month, Pittsburgh radio station WYEP will be airing a series of “Saturday Specials” focusing on women in music. Tori will be subject of the third of the five programs. The company she’s in isn’t too shabby either as the other four shine the spotlight on Patti Smith, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, the Indigo Girls and the Dixie Chicks. Tori’s special airs at 1:00 PM Eastern on Saturday, March 17th.
Pittsburgh locals can tune in WYEP on 91.3 FM and everybody else can stream the station live over the Internet.
Thanks to Kimberly for the head’s up about this!
Note, too, that the day before, WYEP will broadcast their countdown of the Top 50 Women in Music at 2:00 PM Eastern. One reckons that a women who gets her own Saturday Special may also turn up in the countdown as well….
BMac tells us that tickets for the Norway show are on sale now. Go! Buy!
June 14 — Olso, Norway
June 22 — Bratislava, Slovakia
May 30 — Florence, Italy
(At least this is when Ticketone says they’re going on sale. The online sales for the Italian shows have been such an error-riddled mess, we won’t believe this until we see it.)
You can now hear long clips of two songs from American Doll Posse, “Big Wheel” and “Bouncing Off Clouds,” at Promo Squad. The site requires you to register and rate other songs before you get to hear them. Have at it!
Update: For those of you having trouble getting Promo Squad to serve up either of the two songs, head on over to PerezHilton.com where you can stream “Big Wheel” on demand!
