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.
Ticketmaster has added a listing for a concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on Thursday, October 18th. As with the other two shows added today, a presale starting at 10:00 AM this Wednesday is indicated with the general sale starting on Friday, also at 10:00 AM. The presale is specifically listed as an iTunes presale so that should give hope to those wondering about that since it was first announced way back in April.
Thanks to Foxy and Tasha for the heads-up!
Update: Forgot to mention that the Philadelphia Ticketmaster listing has been removed. Don’t be surprised if the Louisville or Boston listings blink in and out of existence before the dates are finally announced fo’realz.
Ticketmaster has added listings for two shows this morning: October 15th at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania and October 28th at the Palace Theatre in Louisville, Kentucky. Presales for both shows are scheduled to be held on the morning of Wednesday, July 25th at 10:00 AM local time, while the general on-sale date for both is Friday.
Bryan was the first of many to ping us about these — thanks to you all!
Thanks to adorrre for letting us know that a video clip of the press conference Tori gave before the Bucharest show on July 13th is available at metalhead.ro.
(Video moved behind the cut since it annoyingly played automatically….)
Both Mike and Chrissy B. dropped by to tell us that it looks like Tori will be playing the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Oct. 11 and 12, show starting at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $39.50 to $60 and go on sale Friday, July 27, at 10 a.m. (You have to go to the Web site and then search for Tori Amos to get the event to come up, but it’s there.) Like all the others, this date is not officially confirmed, yadda yadda yadda.
Israeli journalist and Toriphile Sheer Ganor attended a press conference for Tori on Thursday. You can read Sheer’s article (in Hebrew, translation anyone?), which also contains a video that’s a bit different from the one on YouTube posted earlier today. (I didn’t have any trouble getting the video to play in Safari on Mac, but it opened another window with a blank screen and took about 30 seconds to start up, so after you click to play, be patient. If more then a minute passes, then it’s safe to assume it won’t work for you.)
Plenty has already been said about the Dolls and their fashion sense, but the celeb-watchers over at Molly Good decided to take a turn recently, and came up with a piece called Character Study. The entry is short on verbiage but includes several nice shots of the Dolls on stage. Thanks to Astred for the tip!
U.S. Tori fans have been busy this week, trying to tease out information on possible tour dates for the fall. Here’s what they’ve found:
Jon actually called every venue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was told by a Benedum Center employee that Tori will play there Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices were quoted at $34.50 and $40.50.
Ernie Diaz heard from Live Nation that Tori’s playing the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis, Indiana on Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. So far, this hasn’t been posted to the Live Nation site.
Habidabad has a source inside the Palace Theater in Louisville, Kentucky who claims Tori will play there on or near Oct. 26.
We’ve said this before, and we’ll keep saying it until a full tour itinerary is confirmed: these dates are by no means confirmed or finalized, but we’re reporting them anyway because there’s a chance many of them will turn out to be legit. And knowing is half the battle.
Alicia points out that the Y-Rock Concert Calendar includes the October 15th concert at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby (just west of Philadelphia) with an on-sale date of Friday, July 27th. I looked there yesterday and was pretty sure it said at the time that the on-sale date was Saturday, July 20th (as we reported earlier) so either my reading comprehension is worse than my memory or Y-Rock changed their calendar. Or both. Either way, thanks Alicia for catching that!
Ido tells us that the NRG web site has published an announcement from Tori’s concert management saying that Tori has decided to cancel the Rayden warm-up on the Israeli show and will start the concert half an hour earlier in order to “give the Israeli audience a whole night of Tori experience.”
So the Ra’anana show will start at 21:00 instead of 21:30.
Update: Yishai points out that, according to what’s in the NRG article as well as other Israeli press, the concert will actually start promptly at 8:30 PM.
Undented reader Hank received an email today from Y-Rock, a Philly-based radio station, announcing that Tori will play Oct. 15 at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia/Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. It says — get this — that tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Saturday. Guess it’s time to thaw out our credit cards!
Also, we notice that Ticketmaster removed its Oakland listings from this morning. Again, nothing’s certain until the Tori camp says so, but it sounds like we’ll get a better sense about the North American leg of the tour very soon!
