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.
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.
Get your party hats on! Two big anniversaries of note will be celebrated and observed over the coming week!
First, 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Tori’s other labor of love that came into being in 1994: RAINN! RAINN’s second decade will be celebrated with a birthday brunch on Sunday, August 17th at which Tori, RAINN’s first spokesperson, will be the guest of honor. Tickets for the brunch are long sold out but there are still sponsor packages available if you’d like to contribute to the event and attend.
Regardless of whether or not you are able to attend the brunch, RAINN is encouraging everyone to join the celebration using the hashtag #RAINN20th on Twitter and Instagram. Perhaps you have some personal reflections on how Tori’s music and presence as a survivor has helped you or influenced your perception of sexual violence. Maybe you want to share how you are honoring RAINN’s 20th anniversary. It’s all welcome! We also encourage you to, as they suggest, make a $20 donation in honor of the anniversary — every little bit helps!
Second, this coming Friday, August 22, is Tori’s 51st birthday! There are plans afoot to mark the occasion at the concert in Clearwater, Florida on Friday – the first time she’ll be playing a show on a birthday since 2003 if our memories aren’t too whack on a Saturday morning. Details are still being worked out by the crew and should be shared towards the middle of the coming week, so please do not pester them about it. Soon as we get the plan, we’ll be passing it along — hope it’s wonderful night for everyone and, most especially, for Tori!
However, if you want to get in on the birthday celebration early, we encourage you to make a donation to RAINN as an early birthday present via the RAINNmaker page of our fine, feathered friends at Tori Songs. Last year, for Tori’s 50th, Tori fans from across the world contributed $3,500. Celebrate her 51st year, Unrepentant Geraldines, and the incredible tour supporting it by chipping in to thank her for all that she has done since then!
We’ve gotten word from the tour crew that between their schedule today and the earlier show time tonight, there will not be a meet and greet in Boston today. Sorry to those looking forward to saying hi to her today…
Mesa, Arizona. Friday, 25 July, 2014. 2226 hours.
ZERO POINT. LIVE. ZERO EFFING POINT, PEOPLE.
In other news, hell has frozen over and pigs have taken to the sky.
The setlist for last night’s show at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles has been posted! We won’t spoil the surprises — just go look and bask in the glow!
Update: The Live Nation pre-sale for this show is underway. No password required but you must be registered with Live Nation to buy tickets in this pre-sale.
Update: Yep, Live Nation has clarified their listing and our guess was correct: Live Nation pre-sale on Wednesday from 10:00 AM AEST, Ticketmaster pre-sale on Friday from 10:00 AM AEST, and general sale next Monday from 10:00 AM AEST.
So, while we were distracted by oh, something shiny, Live Nation Australia & New Zealand went and added a second show in Sydney, Australia to their listing. This second show is on Wednesday, November 12th and is also with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House.
The listing on Live Nation is a bit confusing as far as ticket sale dates in that it shows a pre-sale on July 25th and general sales on July 23rd and 28th. This show is not on Ticketmaster yet so can’t cross-reference but we’re assuming Live Nation’s sales dates will probably be a Live Nation pre-sale on the 23rd, a Ticketmaster pre-sale on the 25th and the general sale on the 28th. But we shall see…
Thanks to Mario for the tip!
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.
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.
