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.
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!
“I’m not one to give the record company my blessing and do what [they] think is best. I don’t think that anybody knows what’s best except the composer or the midwives of the songs themselves.” —Tori Amos

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!

Hmmmmmmmm. Maybe Tori will take a page from Brian’s notebook and do the same thing someday….

Rhino has created an e-card to help promote the release of A Piano: The Collection. The e-card includes clips of the alternate mix of “Precious Things”, the unedited single version of “Crucify”, and “Cooling” and links to purchase the collection from Rhino, to the various official Tori Amos websites, to Rhino’s podcast (which, it should be noted, reviewed Fade To Red in its January 31, 2006 episode), to the sign-up form for Rhino’s newsletter, and to share the e-card via e-mail and AIM.
The site says you’ll need to have the Mozilla ActiveX plug-in for this.
