    Mother Superior Drop The Mic

    Tuesday, June 10, 2014 | 02:30 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    We weren’t able to locate a reporter for tonight’s concert in Stuttgart so we didn’t find out what was played until after the show when set list photos from Tori’s team and others at the show started to surface. Once it did though, it was clear that any set list junkies would have been very pleased to be at this show!

    The set included several tour debuts: “God” (with the “Tubular Bells” intro and Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill mashed into it), “Merman,” the first solo performance of “Smokey Joe,” “Beulah Land,” and, during the encore, “Sweet the Sting.” Fan favorites like “Pancake,” “Little Amsterdam,” and “Mother” also made appearances.

    However, the most striking song played was The Beatles’ “Happiness Is A Warm Gun,” a song that, despite having recorded it for Strange Little Girls, she’s never played before! It was performed back-to-back with “Let It Be” to open the Lizard Lounge. The other cover during the Lounge was Lloyd Cole and the Commotions’ “Rattlesnakes.”

    The complete set list is up in the Tour section. Needless to say, we’d love to hear what this show was like — if you were there and would like, please share your impression of the evening using the form at the bottom of that page. We’ll also get any photos and videos added there yadda yadda yadda.

    Fernsehgarten (June 8, 2014)

    Sunday, June 08, 2014 | 13:10 UTC | Posted by woj | TV/Radio/Web,Video

    Tori was on the ZDF program Fernsehgarten this morning, for a lip-sync performance of “Trouble’s Lament” on an open-air stage surrounded by clapping Germans.

    While she is prominently featured on the sliding program grid on ZDF’s home page (if you go over far enough), she’s barely mentioned on the page for today’s program…but video of the appearance is available in ZDF’s archive — as well as on Youtube (although, apparently, not in Germany):

    Thanks to DocSnyder for the video links!

    From The Fading Light She Flies

    Sunday, June 08, 2014 | 01:17 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    It’s not unusual for Tori to select songs, whether originals or covers, that are appropriate for where a concert is taking place. Take “Playboy Mommy” in Birmingham or “My Favorite Things” in Vienna, for example. Likewise, it is not uncommon for her to make a social statement with her song choices as well.

    However, her gesture at tonight’s concert in Linz may be one of her grandest yet as, with the stage backdrop lit to look like an Austrian flag, Tori performed Conchita Wurst’s "Rise Like a Phoenix," the song that, despite criticism from conservative groups that Wurst’s selection promoted LGBT rights, brought victory to Austria in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Reportedly, there was a standing ovation following Tori’s performance — we can’t wait to see or hear this one!

    But that’s not all! The rest of the set featured the tour debuts of “Father’s Son,” “Butterfly,” and “Roosterspur Bridge” as well as, opening up the Lizard Lounge, Fleetwood Mac’s “Songbird.” “Oysters,” “Wedding Day,” “Secret Spell,” “Cooling,” and “Another Girl’s Paradise” rounded out what sounds like a powerhouse performance!

    The full set list, thanks to the mighty efforts of @lenoreva and @TAcollectibles, has been posted in the Tour section. Check it out and, if you were there, please consider posting a review — we’d love to hear what you thought of the show!

    Cream-colored Ponies And Crisp Apple Strudels

    Saturday, June 07, 2014 | 17:06 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    After an afternoon visit to the Bösendorfer showroom, as one does when one is in Vienna (Bösendorfer shared more photos of the visit on Facebook), Tori performed at the Wiener Konzerthaus last night, the first of two consecutive nights in Austria.

    The set featured “Purple People,” “Playboy Mommy,” “Garlands,” “Josephine,” and the tour debut of the Under the Pink stalwart “Cloud on My Tongue.” The Lizard Lounge acknowledged Austris with “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music while the other cover was Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” (As you can see from the photo of the setlist Tori and team shared, the Lounge was originally to include two Leonard Cohen songs: “Take This Waltz,” which would have been a nod to Vienna, and “Famous Blue Raincoat.”)

    Many thanks to @lenoreva and @dieGamon for sending the setlist our way as it happened so we could do the live-update thang on Twitter! The whole shebang is posted in the Tour section. We’ve already received a few reviews of the show; if you were there and would like to add your voice, please send one in using the form at the bottom of Vienna page.

    Oh Milano! Oh Padova! Oh My!

    Thursday, June 05, 2014 | 00:47 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    Following the show in Rome on Monday, came the other two tour stops in Italy on the Unrepentant Geraldines tour: Milan and Padua and, as one might expect from the way this tour has been going, the shows did not disappoint!

    Each show featured tour debuts: “Another Girl’s Paradise” in Milan and “Liquid Diamonds” and “On the Boundary” in Padua. Wait, did we say “On the Boundary?” Oh yes we did! For the second time ever, Tori broke that Y Kant Tori Read nugget out for the listening enjoyment of the audience! “Etienne,” also from YKTR, made an appearance in Padua too.

    Other songs of note included “Black Dove,” “Your Cloud,” and “Not the Red Baron” in Milan and, in Padua, “Northern Lad,” “Garlands,” and Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” with the usual inclusion of some lyrics from “Body & Soul.” “Over the Rainbow,” made famous by Judy Garland, and Tom Waits’ “Time” comprised the Lizard Lounge in Milan while Padua’s featured Lloyd Cole’s “Rattlesnakes” and Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You.”

    The complete sets for both shows, thanks again to Lisa and Luca, have been posted in the Tour section. Will be getting multimedia added there as it appears as well, more importantly, your reviews! If you were there and would like to summarize your impressions of the show, we’ve love to give you the platform! Just post a review using the comment form at the bottom of each show’s page.

    And don’t forget: all the other shows on the tour so far are documented there too!

    In The Spring Becomes The Rome

    Tuesday, June 03, 2014 | 03:02 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    The first of the three straight concerts in Italy on the Unrepentant Geraldines tour took place this evening in Rome. While we weren’t able to cover the show as it happened, the set list was sent to us right after the show ended by our buddy Lisa to whom we extend our gratitude!

    The show featured the tour debut of “Carbon,” the return of “Ophelia” (which was played on the first night of the tour but not since), “Blood Roses,” “Father Lucifer,” and, during the Lizard Lounge, Bette Midler’s “The Rose” and Carly Simon’s “Boys in the Trees.” “Weatherman” and “Invisible Boy” represented Unrepentant Geraldines in the show. Have a look at the complete set list in the Tour section.

    If you were at the show, please consider writing a review using the form at the bottom of the concert’s page as we love to hear what you thought of the performance as much as we love to hear what was played! We’ll get those posted, as well as any multimedia we stumble on, as quickly as we can!

    Tori's 10 Q-mandments (July 2014)

    Tuesday, June 03, 2014 | 02:45 UTC | Posted by woj | Articles

    One of the regular features in Q Magazine these days is “My 10 Commandments,” in which a musician or performer outlines their rules for getting by and Tori gets to fill us in on her guidelines for life in the July 2014 issue (#336).

    The issue is on newsstands now and can also be ordered online if you wish.

    We’ll get a transcription up soon as we can. In the meantime, here are scans of the article for your perusal, thanks to @SchizoEclectic:

    DAS! (June 1, 2014)

    Sunday, June 01, 2014 | 18:54 UTC | Posted by woj | TV/Radio/Web

    A little appearance was aired on the the German television program DAS! on NDR today.

    During the clip, in which Tori is overdubbed, she answers questions about touring, her early years playing music in gay bars, Y Kant Tori Read, and her relationship with the piano. It also includes a bit of video from the Hamburg concert.

    The complete 32 minute interview is also available on NDR’s website.

    Many thanks to fanola for letting us know about this!

    Update: The full interview has surfaced on YouTube…

    God Kveld Norge (May 31, 2014)

    Sunday, June 01, 2014 | 17:02 UTC | Posted by woj | TV/Radio/Web

    A brief appearance on the Norwegian television program God Kveld Norge was aired on May 31st. During the spot, which was recorded before the Oslo concert on May 22nd, Tori discussed the impact of her rape and the healing and recovery, particularly with respect to her family’s help in bringing that about.

    Video of the clip is now available on TV2’s website, along with an article that summarizes the appearance. Or just watch it on Youtube:
