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.
Just when you thought the little summer tour that’s been mapped out and complete, out pops another date!
The line-up for the 2015 Stockholm Music & Arts festival was announced today and Tori is on the bill for Saturday, August 1st. Tickets go on sale on Monday April 27th at Noon CEST or maybe 11:00 AM CEST, if you believe Tori’s social media streams.
As this show is happening a month and a half after the latest of the shows at the start of the summer, we’re wondering if this means that more dates may be announced…but, alas, the tea leaves in our cup are just saying, “Future murky, ask again later…”
Two more dates have been added to the short run of shows that Tori is doing this coming summer in Europe.
First, she has been added to the line-up for Primavera Sound, a massive festival that takes place the last weekend of May in Barcelona, Spain. She will be playing Parc del Fòrum in May 30th. Festival tickets have been on sale for some time now but are still available. Check out the festival’s website for ticketing details.
Second, on June 6th, Tori will be performing in the Renaissance Garden at Egeskov Castle in Kværndrup, Denmark. This will be the first time that any concert has been held at this location and, judging by the photos of the grounds on the castle’s website, looks to be a gorgeous setting! Only 1200 tickets are available for this performance so don’t sleep on this one if you’re planning on going!
Jyske Bank cardholders can purchase tickets now though through an arrangement with Live Nation Denmark. The pre-sale tickets are limited to 2 per customer and you’ll need your card number to access it. See Billetnet for details.
While we were dreaming here in North America, tickets for the June 8th concert at Finlandia Hall in Helsinki went on sale this morning. Demand was high so a second show has been added the following night, June 9th. Tickets for that performance are on sale now at Lippupavelu!
Update: Another day, another date! This time, it’s not a festival appearance but rather a performance at Helsinki’s Finlandia Hall on June 8th. Tickets go on sale via Lippupalvelu on January 28th at 9:00 AM local time. Live Nation also lists the show so tickets may be sold there or they may just refer one to Lippupalvelu to purchase when the time comes.
Update: Festivals it is! At least so far. Today, it was announced that Tori will be playing Norwegian Wood in Oslo, Norway on Friday, June 12th (same day at Patti Smith!) and Bergenfest in Bergen, Norway on Saturday, June 13th in the headline slot. Tickets – both full festival and day passes – are already on sale for both via Ticketmaster. Check each festival’s website for more details!
Note that both festival websites, in their artist descriptions for Tori, indicate that these are part of a five show solo tour so there are three more dates left to surface…
So the Undented Dork Posse was snuggled in our Winter den (sorry, we’re Northern Hemispheric folks), watching, as work on the cast recording of The Light Princess progresses, photos of Tori and various cast members stream by on the social media when we were startled awake by the announcement today that Tori will be playing some “special European shows this summer!”
Our brains start racing, naturally. Festival shows? Theatre shows? Something else we haven’t guessed yet? Can’t say we’re surprised given the success of last year’s tour and the obvious relish with which she enjoyed performing but, alas, we don’t know any more than anyone else at this point.
Very nearly one year after it was announced, the tour supporting Tori’s 2014 release, Unrepentant Geraldines, drew to a close this past week with the last three Australian shows: Perth, an all-request extravaganza in Sydney, and the final performance in Brisbane.
And what a year it has been! The release of an album widely acclaimed as a return to form! A whirlwind of promo from in-stores to in-studios to record shopping jaunts! Over 70 electrifying shows on a tour that crossed Europe, South Africa, North America and Australia! Covers, requests and mashups! An embracing of social media. Secret sonic selfies! Fashionable eye-wear! And the list goes on!
So, now that the tour has drawn to a close and we slide into the year-end holidays, cozying up with YouTubes and bootlegs from the tour, we just wanted to thank you all for following along with us. Whether you texted or tweeted setlists our way, videoed clips from the tour, freaked out with us when we got Züro Pünk’d, freaked out with us when Zero Point’s time came, freaked out with us in general, or just quietly sat back and took it all in, we really appreciate you, our fellow Toriphiles and all you do.
P.S. Onwards to The Light Princess album! And, if you can’t wait until them for more Tori goodness, keep an eye on Tori Songs as they are nigh unto announcing the results of 2014 Unrepentant Edition of the Top 50 Tori Songs poll!
Tonight’s performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House is in the books and so, with that, the Australian leg of the Unrepentant Geraldines tour is officially on its way!
Although initially advertised as one set with the Symphony and one solo, the evening turned out to be two sets with the symphony with each half containing a few solo songs, including “Purple People” and “Bells For Her,” scattered amongst the orchestral pieces. The complete set list which, unsurprisingly, focused on material from Gold Dust but also included “Baker Baker,” “Leather,” and, “Edge of the Moon,” has been posted in the Tour section.
As always, we’d love to hear from you if you’re were in attendance at the show! If you’d like to share with us and the world, please post a review using the a form at the bottom of the set list page.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but we’ve gotten confirmation that there will not be a meet and greet at the final North American show in Miami. Unfortunately, tomorrow’s schedule is tight and does not allow for there to be meet and greet.
51 maybe not be as big a deal as 50 in birthday terms, but Tori’s 51st year has been a significant one between the long-awaited run of The Light Princess, the release of Unrepentant Geraldines, and the subsequent tour — so there is much to celebrate! And celebrate we will on Friday as Tori celebrates her special day on the stage at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater!
As we alluded to earlier this week, the tour crew has formulated a plan…but it’s still a bit of a secret as a certain someone (who undoubtedly will be suspecting something) isn’t supposed to know. So! The plan will be explained by Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou during their opening set. Get there early Friday to get the low-down on what’s going to go down and please follow their lead so that Tori’s first birthday show in a decade is as wonderful as it can be!
Sorry, guys, we’ve gotten word from the tour crew that there will be no M&G in Clearwater tomorrow. We know a lot of you were hoping to wish Tori a happy birthday in person and Tori is very sorry she won’t be able to chat with you on her special day, but the schedule is packed. You’ll just have to send her extra-strong best birthday ESP vibes during the show.
We’ve gotten word from the tour crew that, because of the schedule for the day, there will not be a meet and greet in Nashville on Monday. While we’re sorry for those hoping to say hi to Tori tomorrow, at least no one will have to dodge the thunderstorms in tomorrow’s forecast.
