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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
Sister Janet! Rose Dover! Girl! Flying Dutchman! Juarez! Amber Waves! Zero Point! ZOMG!
You are in a large concert hall in Amsterdam. The hall is filled with people attending a performance by Tori Amos. She is on stage sitting between a keyboard and a piano, bathed in light. She has just finished the first song of the concert and the audience is cheering.
> request blood roses
Tori plays “Blood Roses.”
And that’s probably how the proceedings at tonight’s show in Amsterdam may have felt to some.
In addition to “Blood Roses,” the set also included three other favorites from Boys for Pele, “Putting The Damage On,” “Little Amsterdam,” and “Twinkle,” the rarely-played Scarlet’s Walk b-side “Mountain,” and three songs from the new album: “Oysters,” “Weatherman,” and “Wedding Day.” And if that wasn’t pleasant enough, the Lizard Lounge featured covers of Madonna’s “Frozen” and Don Maclean’s “Vincent.”
Thanks to the efforts of @ShaoLao and @chilowicz, tonight’s set list was updated live on the site and on Twitter — we really appreciate their assistance with that! Some video from the show — including the performance of “Frozen” which we know many were very interested in — has already been added to the page. As always, reviews of the performance are welcome and encouraged! If you’d like to share, just use the form at the bottom of the setlist page and we’ll get it added.
Just be careful not to be eaten by a grue.
Tonight’s concert at Cirque Royal — or Koninklijk Circus, if you prefer — in Brussels, while quite different in tone from two nights ago in Rotterdam, was no less surprising in its contents.
The set included the tour debuts of “Marys of the Sea,” “Maybe California,” “Home on the Range,” “Not the Red Baron,” and “Take Me With You,” as well as other favorites like “Honey,” “Icicle,” “Cool on Your Island,” and “Father Lucifer.” The Lizard Lounge tonight featured Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” and Leonard Cohen’s “Famous Blue Raincoat.”
The complete setlist, with much gratitude to @C_Tassier who live-tweeted the show, is up in the Tour section. We’ve already added a few videos from the show, thanks to the efforts of those who were at the show and eschewed sleep to upload them. As more videos surface and pictures are shared, we’ll get them added as well.
We’d also love to hear about the show from those that were there. If you were and would like to share a review of the concert, please send one in using the form at the bottom of the Brussels page!
Two songs into tonight’s concert at de Doelen, Tori said to the audience that she had a lot of surprises for them and that more than turned out to the be the case — and then some!
Thanks to the efforts of @WhyNotCallMeRoe and @borinisuarez, we were able to follow along tonight’s set which featured the tour debuts of “Concertina,” “Don’t Make Me Come To Vegas,” “Digital Ghost,” and that old Y Kant Tori Read chestnut, “Fire on the Side.” And if playing a song from the so-called pop flop album for only the second time ever wasn’t enough of a surprise, the Lizard Lounge featured a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours-era b-side “Silver Springs” (happy birthday Stevie!) and the encore featured another first-time cover: Pat Benetar’s “Love is a Battlefield.” The remaining cover of the Lounge was Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.” Srsly.
Perhaps more so than usual, we’d love to hear what those at this show thought of the performance. If you would like to share a review of the show, please do so using the form a tthe bottom of the Rotterdam page. As videos and photos surface or are sent our way, we’ll get them added there too.
While we didn’t have live coverage of tonight’s concert in Hamburg, we knew we could depend on the fine folks on Tori’s team to post a photo of the setlist after the gig ended and, sure enough, they came through!
Tonight’s show featured “Forest of Glass” and “Invisible Boy” from Unrepentant Geraldines, the beloved b-sides “Here. In My Head” and “Honey,” and the tour debut of “Father Lucifer.” The Lizard Lounge included Joni Mitchell’s “Circle Game” and Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and, to close out the main set, Tori segued “In the Springtime of His Voodoo” into The Beatles’ “The Long and Winding Road,” presumably as a nod to the city where the Fab Four honed their chops.
Reviews of the shows are always welcome! If you’d like to share your thoughts on the performance, please write up your reaction and send it in using the form at the bottom of the Hamburg page. As we come across videos and photos, we’ll be adding them there too.
The Unrepentant Geraldines Tour’s Scandinavian swing, which came to a close at Copenhagen’s Koncerthuset tonight, may have been short but it was certainly sweet.
Featuring the debuts of the touching “Oysters” and the unexpected “General Joy,” tonight’s concert also included covers of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” and Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” as well as “Apollo’s Frock,” “Selkie,” “China,” “Scarlet’s Walk,” and, to close out the night, “Tear In Your Hand.” Not a bad way to spend an evening, eh?
The complete setlist has been posted in the Tour section. Many thanks to @muskelmaria (again!) and @MrProgrammable for tweeting it our way so we could cover the show live on that there Intertubes! It’s always fun to see the sets unfold and we couldn’t do that without the help of those sending in the setlist.
We also can’t tell everything about a show just from what songs were played either. If you were there and would like to share your thoughts on the performance to help fill out everyone’s picture of the show, we’d love to hear from you! Just use the form at the bottom of the setlist page to send in a review.
