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.
Sanchez 2winz, the art duo of Raúl Sánchez & Rod Sánchez, is using their new track “Winged Painter,” which includes remixed vocals by Tori Amos, to inspire a fundraiser for RAINN. They have produced a video for the song that will be premiered on March 31st and, if you make a donation to RAINN via their RAINNmaker page, your name will be included in the credits for of the video.
They’ve released a teaser video that, besides giving us a taste of what they have in store for the full video, provides a few more details about their campaign:
There are two days left in the campaign and they’re getting close to their goal so please chip in if you can!
The Unrepentent Geraldines album pre-order pre-sale for the Los Angeles show at The Greek Theatre goes down today. The password should have been e-mailed out yesterday to anyone who pre-ordered the album from MyPlay Direct with the pre-sale option before Noon this past Friday. If you did get in on that album pre-order and have not received the password (and have made sure it’s not in a spam folder), contact MyPlay Direct and they will help you out.
The pre-sale is being handled by Ticketmaster, starts at 10:00 AM PDT today, and continues through to Friday evening at 10:00 PM PDT.
Ticketmaster also lists an “Internet pre-sale” starting Friday, March 21st at 10:00 AM PDT and ending at 10:00 PM PDT. Usually, those sorts of things are driven by either the venue or promoter with details being sent via their e-mail newsletters. Sign up for The Greek’s newsletter here and Nederlander Concerts’ newsletter on their website.
Finally, if the pre-sale hoopla passes you by, tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 22nd at 10:00 AM PDT.
Rumors that Tori would return to South Africa on the Unrepentent Geraldines tour had been swirling around for the past several weeks and it now appears they are are true as Computicket.com has added listings and is selling tickets for four shows there: two nights in Johannesberg on June 26th and 27th and two nights in Cape Town on June 29th and 30th.
These shows are not yet listed on ToriAmos.com. However, given the sales of tickets and the fact the these shows are being presented by the same organization that brought her to South Africa for the first time in 2011, one would think it’s as good as confirmed.
Novinite.com reports that a new show has been added to the European leg of the Unrepentant Geraldines tour at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria on June 20th. Tickets are on sale now via Eventim and Ticketportal. While the concert is not listed on the NDK’s website, those are reputable ticketing agencies, so it looks like her first visit to Bulgaria is legit…
Update: Looks like EventEase is presenting the concert. Here is their announcement about the show. It’s in Bulgarian (natch) but Google translate does a pretty good job…
Update: This show is confirmed on the European tour listing on ToriAmos.com.
Well, here we go.
Tickets for all of the dates on the North American leg of the Unrepentant Geraldines tour — except for Los Angeles, San Diego, and Cleveland — go on sale this week.
All shows on sale this week, with the exception of the first night in New York City, have pre-sales for those who pre-ordered the album from the Tori Store on Tuesday, March 4th at 10:00 AM local time. Codes for those pre-sales will be sent via e-mail sometime during the day on Monday. According to MyPlay Direct, the codes are only good for show you selected when you pre-ordered the record and the number of tickets you can purchase is set by the venue and ticketing agency. Several of the Ticketmater listings explicitly state that the number of tickets that can be purchased during the pre-sale and they’re all the same as the regular sale limits.
General sales for all shows take place on Friday, March 7th with the exception of Clearwater which takes place on Saturday, March 8th.
In addition, there are a number of other pre-sales handled by the venues scheduled throughout the week for many of the shows. We don’t have details on all of them but if we get wind of anything, we will pass it along as possible.
A full listing of all the sales that we know of after the jump. If you hear of any others or have any additional details, please let us know!.
Good luck to everyone purchasing tickets this week!
Something that escaped our notice when the Unrepentant Geraldines pre-order pre-sale was announced last week is that there is a deadline for pre-ordering the record to receive one of the pre-sale codes.
For all pre-sales taking place next week on Tuesday, March 4th — which is all of them except the ones for Los Angeles, San Diego, and Cleveland — you must pre-order the album, in which ever format, by Noon Eastern on Friday, February 28th. At that time, we assume the pre-sale pre-orders will be inactivated or removed outright.
As for the timing of the pre-sale code delivery, the Tori Store indicates that they will be e-mailed within 24 hours of the pre-sale taking place. Today’s social media updates specifically say the codes will be e-mailed on Monday, March 3rd, so they should all arrived by next Monday evening.
If the other pre-sales follow the same pattern, we anticipate the deadlines will be March 14th for Los Angeles, March 28th for San Diego, and April 4th for Cleveland — but don’t quote us on that!
In related news, Broadway World Music reported on the two shows at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. According to the article, there will be an advance ticket sale for Chase customers for the August 12th show starting on Monday, March 3rd, at 10:00 AM Eastern. There is no pre-order pre-sale for that show. On the other hand, there is a pre-order pre-sale for the August 13th show, starting March 4th (as we know). Of course, neither advance sale appears on the Ticketmaster listings for these concerts. We expect them to be added by Monday though.
Today’s the day!
The 2014 WhatsOnStage Awards will be, uh, awarded this evening at a ceremony at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London’s West End. The Light Princess is nominated in six categories so we are hopeful for more recognition for the musical!
Earlier this week, it was announced that Rosalie Craig was added to the line-up for the awards concert. Naturally, she’ll be performing a song from The Light Princess though we don’t know which one yet.
Unfortunately, the concert and ceremony will not be streamed this year but you can follow along on Twitter, Facebook and a live blog by Catherine Love. Video highlights, hopefully including Rosalie’s performance, will be posted on WhatsOnStage’s YouTube channel starting on Monday as well.
Good luck to all those nominated and may The Light Princess float again!
A little while after we posted about the Rolling Stone article earlier today, ToriAmos.com received a wee facelift. Banished is the stark black and white tone of the temporary theme put in place a few months ago and visitors are now greeted by the new album artwork and the new publicity photo which graces this article. The North American dates, including on-sales dates, were added as well, albeit on a separate page from the European dates. Go figger.
There will be pre-sales for all but one of the North American shows. This time around, those who pre-order the album from The Tori Store will be sent a code to participate in the pre-sale for a single concert. For each pre-order, you select the show that you want to purchase pre-sale tickets for and the code will be delivered via e-mail to you 24 hours prior to the pre-sale. It’s a little convoluted but, having just pre-ordered the album on vinyl, the process wasn’t too bad. The only show that is NOT having pre-order pre-sales is the first New York City show.
That said, having just gone through and adding all the new dates to our tour section, it turns out that there will be the usual assortment of venue, promoter, Live Nation and other miscellaneous pre-sales on top of the pre-order pre-sale. All the details that we could find from either venue, promoter or ticket agency websites have been added to our listing. We’ll keep those as updated as we can but please do contact us if you come across a detail we don’t have or find any incorrect information. We’re running on fumes here so we’d be disappointed if there weren’t at least a few typos to fix!
Finally, UK residents, there is a pre-order deal for you too! If you pre-order the deluxe edition from Universal Music, you will be entered into a drawing to win a pair of front row tickets for the May 15th show at London’s Royal Albert Hall and a meet and greet with Tori after the show. Not too shabby! All the legal terms and conditions for the contest are there for your reading pleasure if you’re suffering from insomnia.
Phew. Okay, enough excitement for tonight! Back on our heads!
I’ve always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with music, art is not a job you can go to and leave from, but it is something that defines who and what you are. Visual artists shake up our brains and force us to look at everything, from objects we don’t normally think twice about to people we might not have cared about. In one image, they can remind us of nature’s power to enchant, as well as humankind’s fruitless attempt to overpower her or simply second-guess her. Through the visual artist’s application of tone, shape, pattern and pigment, I not only begin to see, but I can honestly say I begin to hear.
Rolling Stone’s report about yesterday’s unveiling of the cover for Unrepentant Geraldines includes dates for the North American leg of the 2014 tour and confirmation of the album’s release on May 13th, as Amazon indicated when they added a listing for the record to the store. The article also mentions that the European leg “culminates” in Bucharest, Romania on June 19th.
The North American dates are listed below.

Before the day is consumed by whatever news is slated to be announced today, just a quick note to make sure everyone knows that Rosalie Craig, the star of The Light Princess, has been added to the slate of performers for this coming weekend’s WhatsOnStage Awards Concert. She will be performing a song from the musical, though which one has not been specified yet. This might be a rare opportunity to see her sing music from the show while on the ground instead of in the air!
Tickets for the concert and ceremony, which takes place Sunday, February 23rd at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London, are still available.
