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.
There are five stops on the swing down under:
November 11 – Sydney Opera House, Sydney with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra!
November 15 – Palais Theatre, Melbourne
November 16 – Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide
November 18 – Riverside Theatre @ PCEC, Perth
November 21 – QPAC Concert Hall, Brisbane
Yes, that’s right: for the concert in Sydney, Tori will be accompanied by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, giving Australia a taste of 2012’s Gold Dust orchestral performances! Very nifty!
Tickets for all shows go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 18th with dreaded pre-sales taking place for each on Monday, July 14th. Exact times for all sales are listed in LiveNation.co.au and in our Tour section.
Thanks to @sharon and Daniel for the heads up — while we were busy dozing off during the Netherlands/Argentina match.
Seems Tori was a busy little vinyl hawk in New York City back in April — though honestly, there aren’t too many cities we’d rather flick through the bins in than NYC so who can blame her? In addition to spending some time at Generation Records with Nylon Magazine, she also roamed Rough Trade’s aisles with The Guardian, talking about some of her favorite albums for the Vinyl Cut series. Check it out…
As confirmed on the program’s website, Tori will be the musical guest on Live with Kelly & Michael on Monday, July 14th. The syndicated program is carried on numerous television stations across the United States — check their station finder to find a station near you that does and what time it is on. Or set those DVRs. Or both.
Thanks to Lindsay for the tip!
By the way, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see some other television appearances added once the tour is underway. Keep an eye on Sue Trowbridge’s Late Night Lineups for guest information for national programs as well as your local listings on the off-chance that some regional appearances occur. If we hear of any, we’ll be sure to get the word out.
Tori has donated a pair of tickets to one show on the North American leg of the Unrepentant Geraldines tour and a meet and greet with her for a charity auction benefiting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization provides financial assistance to musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems.
The auction is being handled through Charitybuzz and closes on Thursday, July 10th at 3:12 PM Eastern Daylight Time. More details, including the form to place a bid if you are so inclined, can be found at Charitybuzz.
This time last week, South Africa, basking in the afterglow of the final show on the Unrepentant Geraldines Tour southern swing, was waving farewell to Tori as North America prepared for the tour to return to its shores and pick up again on the West Coast come mid-July. Between the pleasantries of Independence Day here in the States and the unpleasant intrusion of real life, the site has been a bit dormant so here’s a not-so-quick summary of recent happenings to get everyone — particularly ourselves — caught up.
First, a recap of the other things that happened during the South African tour while we were focusing on the live shows themselves.
And, from the non-South-African department…
Phew! Thanks to Mike Minanian, mkgtweety, Erin, Scott, choirguy, Lorna, Jennifer, and several anonymous contributors for all the links! We appreciate it!
It’s been a bit of a rough week here at Undented but despite the lack of recaps, setlists for the three South African shows so far — two in Johannesburg on Thursday and Friday and tonight’s performance in Cape Town, the first of two — were posted in the Tour section either as the shows happened or right after they finished.
The two Johannesburg shows were updated in real-time thanks to @andrew_ja, @LindiAtieno, @burgergc, and @RKGraeme while Cape Town was old school, with reports coming in after the show. Thanks go out to @tessann_e and @julieteidelman for posting photos of the Cape Town setlist on Twitter after the show!
Some notable songs from the three shows include “Take Me With You,” “Real Men,” “Purple Rain,” and “Sugar” on the 26th; “Sister Janet,” “Carbon,” “Spark,” Sinead O’Connor’s “Three Babies”, and Harry Chapin’s “Cats in the Cradle,” on the 27th; and “Merman,” “The Rose,” a mash-up of Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” and Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round,” “Cooling,” and Depeche Mode’s “In Your Room,” tonight. The complete sets for all three shows are in the Tour section.
Reviews of the shows are welcome! We always love to hear about the show and not just hear what was played — though that is important too! There’s a form at the bottom of each show’s page which you can use to post your thoughts if you were there and would like to share!
Finally, there’s just one more show, on Monday in Cape Town, South Africa to go and then there’s a break before the North American leg kicks off. We’re hoping to have real-time coverage for tomorrow on Twitter. If you’re going and would like to send us the set as it happens, please get in touch! Either @ or DM us on Twitter or you can reach us on Facebook or via the trusty Contact form here. We’d love to close out the first half of the tour with a bang!
Last night at Istanbul’s KüçükÇiftlik Park, Tori brought the European leg of the Unrepentant Geraldines Tour to a close in significantly less rainy conditions than four nights earlier in Bucharest at the other open-air venue on the tour.
The set featured three debuts, “Mother Revolution,” “Spring Haze,” and, during the Lizard Lounge, her version of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence,” played for the first time in eleven years! The set also included “Little Earthquakes,” “Forest of Glass,” “Liquid Diamonds,” “Purple People,” and a five-song encore which included “Sugar,” and “Riot Poof.” The other half of the Lizard Lounge was U2’s “Running to Stand Still.”
Many thanks to @atagunmert for sending in the setlist while it happened via Twitter! We really appreciate it, as did those who were able to follow along all over the world! The complete set, along with several videos has been posted in the Tour section. If you were at the show and would like to send in a review, we’d certainly be happy to have it on the site — just use the form at the bottom of the Istanbul page to send on in.
Next stop, South Africa! There will be four shows, two in Johannesburg this Thursday and Friday and two in Cape Town on Sunday and Monday! Tune in then to see what Tori does in her second trip to South Africa!
The penultimate concert on the Unrepentant Geraldines Tour’s European leg has come and gone with a stop at Sofia’s National Palace of Culture — the first time Tori’s played in Bulgaria!
The complete setlist has been posted in the Tour section. The show featured the tour debut of “Suede” and, during the Lizard Lounge, Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Depeche Mode’s “In My Room,” the latter which made its second appearance after first making an appearance in Saint Petersburg last weekend! Other notable inclusions in the set were “Cooling,” “Siren,” “Marys of the Sea,” “Etienne,” and “Secret Spell.”
Video of several songs from the show have already been added to the show’s page but we’d love to hear what those at the show thought of it. If you would like to share, please send in a review using the form at the bottom of the show’s page.
Obvs, we’re totes behind the times but we have been keeping the Tour section up-to-date more or less! Even if a meteorite struck the Earth and caused a thousand-year nuclear winter, we’d manage to find a way to keep the Tour pages updated, even if there was no updates for the rest of the site. Really!
Anyway, setlists for the Saint Petersburg, Moscow, and Bucharest shows have been posted, along with some pictures and videos. The only thing missing from each is your reviews! If you attended any of those shows and would like to share your thoughts on the performance, please send in a review using the coment format at the bottom of any one of the concert pages. We’ll get them approved as quickly as we can!
