Tori is not presently on tour.
Tori’s appeared on ZDF’s Morgenmagazin television program this morning. After a little chat with the host about Gold Dust, tonight’s performance at Berlin’s Philharmonie and her dedicated fanbase, Tori sat down at the piano and played “Cloud On My Tongue.”
The appearance is now archived — watch it in ZDF’s Mediathek.
Update The video has also been uploaded to YouTube by lllilquidDiamonds:
Tori accepted the ECHO Klassik award she won for Night of Hunters at an awards ceremony tonight at the Konzerthaus in Berlin.
She was one of three artists to receive a Klassik-Ohne-Grenzen (Classical Without Borders) prize.
While she did not perform at the awards ceremony, she did present an ECHO Klassik “Nachwuchskünstlerin” (Up and Coming Artist) award to the outstanding pianist Khatia Buniatishvili for her Franz Liszt collection released last year.
The awards ceremony was broadcast on ZDF and should be archived on ZDF.de soon.
Tori was interviewed on the red carpet before the ceremony by ECHO Klassik’s Axel Brüggemann and they’ve shared a clip of it on YouTube:
Don’t forget: Tori will be one of the guests on ZDF’s Morgenmagazin morning television program. The show airs from 5:30 to 9:00 AM CEST but Klassik Akzente reports that she’ll be on during the last hour of the program.
Update Thanks to llliquidDiamonds, you can watch the portion of the ceremony where Tori receives her award on YouTube:
And when she introduces the Upcoming Artist award to Khatia Buniatishvili:
On Saturday, before the concert in Warsaw, Tori made an appearance on the Polish morning television program Dzień Dobry TVN. She chatted for a bit with the hosts about Tori’s affinity for Poland, Gold Dust, her current projects and that evening’s performance with the Polish Radio Orchestra and then lip-synced to “Precious Things” from Gold Dust.
You can view videos of both segments on Dzień Dobry TVN’s website.
Tonight was the penultimate concert in the Gold Dust Orchestral Tour, at Warsaw’s Sala Kongresowa. Unlike the other dates on the tour, this one was not with the Metropole Orkest; rather, Tori performed with the Polish Radio Orchestra. The concert followed the same script as the others though with one solo song, “Merman,” during the first half of the show and an intermission.
The full setlist, thanks to the tweeterific efforts of @baziau and @movemeantTO, is up in the Tour section. If you were there and would like to share your thoughts on the performance, we’d love to hear from you — just use the comment form and we’ll get them posted as quickly as can be. Hopefully, some video and photographs will surface as well.
James Hurley chats with Tori for MSN Music about Gold Dust, the “song girls,” live performance, and her label, Transmission Galactic:
I am very good at dreaming your life for you. If you’re on the fence about a move – and I don’t mean real estate, I mean for emotional reasons – I can give you a neutral assessment.
The Independent profiled Tori in its October 13th edition. In this, for lack of a better term, “list interview,” which also includes a new photograph, she tackles burning questions like what she would change about herself, what she’s good at, what she’s bad at and drops the no-doubt contentious opinion that her Choirgirl Hotel tour attire was a grave mistake. Needless to say, we strongly disagree.
When my older brother Michael would come home, who was ten years older than I was, he would bring in records of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s — the stuff that needed to be out of the house before my father got home, because that was devil music! So he would play them and tell me, “learn this and disguise it so that he doesn’t know. So I guess in a way, I have always been doing variations on a theme, to disguise the “devil music” from my father!
Joel Martens interviewed Tori for Rage Monthly. Their discussion, which appears in the October issue of this Southern California LGBT publication, ranged from Gold Dust to church music to the religiosity of America to song-writing.

Yesterday (Wednesday, October 10th), Tori swung by WFUV for an in-studio at this New York City public radio station. The 40-ish minute long appearance, during which she chatted with deejay Darren DeVivo and performed four songs for a small audience in the studio, is now archived for on-demand. The four songs played were “Purple People,” “Cloud On My Tongue,” “Marianne,” and “Roosterspur Bridge.” Listen below or using the player on wfuv.org.
Incidentally, based on chatter on Twitter, etc., she also made visited to Spinner.com and the SiriusXM studios so be on the lookout for more audio goodies from those two sources (and perhaps others) soon!
The Advocate’s Matthew Breen had a chance to chat with Tori and posted a video clip of the interview. The conversation addresses working with Metropole Orkest, the video for “Flavor,” the goals of her label Transmission Galactic, The Light Princess musical, and her daughter Natashya.
Check it out below:
I’d say in the last few years I’ve had to learn a lot about life’s little surprises. You know that saying “expect the unexpected?” I’d say, “embrace the unexpected,” because that’s where you find that life’s gifts are. That’s where the real inspiration and sparks are. And for me, I’d like to not be closed to different forms of creativity.
Kelly McClure spoke to Tori for VICE Magazine and the resulting interview appeared on their website on October 9th. Their conversation focused on performing live (as the author was one of the lucky ones to get into the (Le) Poisson Rouge concert) but also hits on the reworking of songs for both Gold Dust and live performance, the future, and third eyes. Yep, third eyes. It’s nice when interviews like these make it out into the world.
As an added bonus, the article is peppered with some fantastic new photographs or Tori taken by Kate Black, including the one with the bear. Mmmhmmm.
