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.
…guess the world didn’t end after all. Was wondering why the Undented Dork Posse Apocalypse-o-Bunker 5000’s generator never switched on. Damn you, Mayans!!!
So as we all know, the world is going to end tomorrow, Friday, December 21. (If the world doesn’t end, it’s Winter Solstice. But come on … the world is going to end.)
To mark the occasion, Char Manley and Lisa Ridlon will be hosting a virtual “End Of The World” Tori concert on Twitter.
Wouldn’t you like the spend your last moments on earth hanging with other Toriphiles in cyberspace? Sure, you would! So say goodbye to loved ones and bring yourself on over there Friday night. You don’t even need to comb your hair.
See you there!
Concrete details about the forthcoming The Light Princess musical are still elusive but, as The Stage reported today, it’s still firmly on The National Theatre’s radar for 2013.
The Stage indicates being told by a theatre spokesman that a production slot later next year is still being settled upon and that additional details and dates will be coming in the new year. The Stage also adds that Marianne Elliott, as has been previously reported, is still directing the performance.
So, nothing really new about the musical except an indication of when we should expect to hear about The National’s plans for the production.
This year’s campaign includes a celebrity auction featuring a plethora of auction items and experiences donated by musicians, athletes, and other personalityes that you can bid on at CharityBuzz, including a piano bench signed by Tori Amos.
The auction continues until Thursday, December 13th at 4:20PM Eastern so if you’d like to add this to your home furnishings — and support a great cause in the process — you’ve got a few days to consider doing so!
And even if you don’t want to bid on the bench, consider making a donation to help out this worthy effort.
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:
