Tori is not presently on tour.
Back in the Fall, Tori stopped by the New York City offices of Last.fm and spoke to them about Gold Dust, touring and the life and meaning of songs. Video of the interview was posted was finally on Last.fm’s Originals earlier weekend. Check it out below:
Backstage, just before I’m about to go on, my husband will say to me, ‘Look after my wife,’ and I tell him that he’ll get her back after the show. He is my sound engineer—his hands have been on my faders since 1994. It’s funny, I’m a wife and a mom, but Tori Amos—the person onstage—is sovereign. She’s something different.
The Winter 2012/13 issue of V Magazine includes this interview with Tori, as long as this new photograph of her, taken by Amy Troost. Conducted earlier in the year, the interview pre-dates October’s concerts but covers more material than just Gold Dust and touring with an orchestra, delving into the psychology of performance and the new reality of the music industry as well.
Through the death of my brother, Michael, I realised that mortality is a real thing. Before he died, I didn’t think about mortality in the same way. It woke me up in a way to see just how fragile life is and how important it is to let the people you love know that all the time.
Tori discusses the men in her life and what she knows about them in this little piece that appeared in the December 9th edition of The Brisbane Times.
The energy has to be put into making the work vital, and not settling for something that is just good, because there’s no room, don’t you see? When you’re in your 20s, there’s maybe a little room for you to not be at the top of your artistic game, if you look good on a magazine cover. When you’re not on the cover of the magazines anymore, then you realize that the work has to be great.
Joan Anderman interviewed Tori for the New York Times and the resulting article was posted earlier this week in Booming, The Times’ baby boomer-focused TimesTopic section. The interview is a reflective one, dealing creativity, parenting and ageing — mirroring nicely Anderman’s blog, Middle Mojo, which deals with much of the same topics. Hopefully, the full interview will show up there eventually…
News of Peter Rauhofer’s “Flavor” remixes has been reported previously but, as ToriAmos.com has announced, an EP containing those remixes is released today digitally at Amazon.com and iTunes. Looks like a worldwide release too as the EP has been listed in nearly all the national Amazon and iTunes stores we’ve checked so far.
Unfortunately, the preview of the three remixes Peter Rauhofer had posted on Soundcloud a few weeks ago is no longer available, but the Radio Edit of the Club Mix was premiered by Perez Hilton…but you can listen to it here too:
According to ToriAmos.com and the recently-announced program for the 2013 Caprices Festival, Tori will be performing at this Swiss festival on Sunday, March 10th. The festival takes place in the Swiss Alps, at the ski resort of Crans-Montana.
Tickets are on sale now via the festival’s website.
Update: Looks like this is a false alarm as The Tonight Show website has now listed The Mowgli’s as the musical guest for the 16th and TVGuide.com has revised their listing as well. Our apologies for any heart palpitations…
Curiously, The Tonight Show’s website does not have any guests listed for the 16th yet and Sue Trowbridge’s venerable Late Night TV Page indicates that the guests on the 16th are Chris Matthews and the Mowgli’s, as does Yahoo! TV. However, TVGuide.com says Tori will be performing.
Given the mixed messages, we will try to get confirmation as soon as possible.
Journalist and TV personality Torgen Schneider interviewed Tori and has posted video of their conversation on YouTube as a two-part “Date With Tori Amos.” The first part is a discussion about Gold Dust while the second is a rather interesting and wide-ranging Q&A session.
I was really motivated by women. I was motivated by secrets they keep, the stories that they hold close to their heart and possibly hide behind their eyes. And also, after they might tell me their story, they might talk to me about their emotional process. And it is humbling, intriguing, it opens my perception in ways that I never imagined it would over the last so many years.
Reuters’ Christine Kearney talked to Tori about Gold Dust, recording and performing with the Metropole Orkest, revisiting her older songs and being and staying creative.
The article includes a new photograph taken by Lucas Jackson during a photoshoot earlier in October. A little searching turned up four other photos from the shoot on Yahoo!‘s image search that we’ve stashed after the jump.

Promoting the release of Gold Dust in France, Tori was the musical guest on the France5 television program C à vous on Wednesday, October 24th, during which she performed “Crucify.”
If you are in France, you can watch the performance on france5.fr — the segment with Tori starts around the 7:30 mark. If you are not in France, it’s YouTube to the rescue!
Many thanks to Marie at toriamos.fr and WAGA for letting us know about this! Marie also had the great fortune to be able to meet Tori before the C à vous taping. You can read about her experience on her website, where she also reports that there will be an article in the coming issue of the French Rolling Stone as well as interviews in L’Express and Pure People.
