    Imagine There's No Countries...

    Thursday, June 12, 2014 | 01:24 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    …but there are countries and the one the Unrepentant Geraldines tour stopped in tonight was the Czech Republic where Tori performed in its capital city, Prague, at the Kongresové Centrum.

    Yet again, we were not able to locate a tweeter for the show so we found out which songs were played, along with everyone else not at the show, when that there photo of the setlist was shared on social media by Tori’s team and, judging by the book purely by its cover, it wasn’t that shabby a show at all!

    The performance featured the first appearances of “Spark,” “Yes, Anastasia,” and “Original Sinsuality” in sets on this tour. The rest of the show featured “Butterfly,” “Father Lucifer,” “Northern Lad,” “Little Earthquakes,” “Mother,” and, to end the encore, “Pretty Good Year.” The Lizard Lounge included John Lennon’s “Imagine,” another first for the tour, and Cat Stevens’ “Moonshadow.”

    The Tour section has been update with tonight’s setlist, the #unrepentantselfie, and a few videos that have already surfaced but it’s missing your thoughts on the show. If you were there and would like to share a review, use the comment form at the bottom of the setlist page and we’ll get it added lickety-split.

    Because The Night Belongs to Munich

    Wednesday, June 11, 2014 | 02:01 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    Tonight’s concert at Munich’s Philharmonie im Gasteig marked the final show in Germany on the Unrepentant Geraldines tour and, as is often the case, Tori said farewell to the Germans with a grand performance.

    The show included the first appearance of “Flying Dutchman” on this tour, the lost-and-found Little Earthquakes gem “Take Me With You” (which was not on the printed setlist), “Oysters,” “Liquid Diamonds,” “Doughnut Song,” and a trio of Scarlet’s Walk deep cuts: “Carbon,” “Taxi Ride,” and “Another’s Girl Paradise.” However, the centerpiece of the show was the Lizard Lounge which featured powerful performances of Patti Smith’s version of “Because the Night” and Pat Benetar’s “We Belong!”

    A pretty hefty selection of songs, for sure!

    Thanks to Christine and John for sending over a photo of the setlist after the show was completed. The complete list, as well as a video of “Because the Night” which popped up on YouTube as this was being written, has been posted in the Tour section. As always, ff other videos surface (which they undoubtedly will!), we’ll get them added there — as well as any reviews we receive.

    Mother Superior Drop The Mic

    Tuesday, June 10, 2014 | 02:30 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    We weren’t able to locate a reporter for tonight’s concert in Stuttgart so we didn’t find out what was played until after the show when set list photos from Tori’s team and others at the show started to surface. Once it did though, it was clear that any set list junkies would have been very pleased to be at this show!

    The set included several tour debuts: “God” (with the “Tubular Bells” intro and Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill mashed into it), “Merman,” the first solo performance of “Smokey Joe,” “Beulah Land,” and, during the encore, “Sweet the Sting.” Fan favorites like “Pancake,” “Little Amsterdam,” and “Mother” also made appearances.

    However, the most striking song played was The Beatles’ “Happiness Is A Warm Gun,” a song that, despite having recorded it for Strange Little Girls, she’s never played before! It was performed back-to-back with “Let It Be” to open the Lizard Lounge. The other cover during the Lounge was Lloyd Cole and the Commotions’ “Rattlesnakes.”

    The complete set list is up in the Tour section. Needless to say, we’d love to hear what this show was like — if you were there and would like, please share your impression of the evening using the form at the bottom of that page. We’ll also get any photos and videos added there yadda yadda yadda.

    From The Fading Light She Flies

    Sunday, June 08, 2014 | 01:17 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    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!

    Cream-colored Ponies And Crisp Apple Strudels

    Saturday, June 07, 2014 | 17:06 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    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.

    Oh Milano! Oh Padova! Oh My!

    Thursday, June 05, 2014 | 00:47 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    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!

    In The Spring Becomes The Rome

    Tuesday, June 03, 2014 | 03:02 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    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!

    Buried With A Butter Bean Bouquet

    Het Concertgebouw
    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.

    The Rainbow Ends In Brussels, My Dear

    Thursday, May 29, 2014 | 03:38 UTC | Posted by woj | Touring

    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!
