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.
The Jerusalem Post reports on the upcoming show in Ra’anana, Israel. While getting the opening city of the tour wrong, they do provide a few logistical details of interest about gear (11 tons of it!) crew size (12 people) and venue alternations to accommodate the performance.
The first show of the tour in Rome is in the books! Santa opened the show with a set of her songs, starting with “Body & Soul.” Tori, Jon and Matt were joined by guitarist Dan Phelps on songs from American Doll Posse. There is video of several songs thanks to Robert. And thanks to mina and thewaves for sending the setlist in to The Afterglow! As far as we know, no Popes were in attendance….
Keep track of what’s going on and what reports, photos and video people have sent in for each show by heading over to the Tour page and clicking on the “flashback” link for each concert. And if you attended a show, please comment with your review and we’ll add it to the site!
The first show is tonight, so I wanted to explain how we’re going to handle concert details here on the site. (C’mon, you didn’t think we were going to leave that out, did you???)
As each show is in progress, the links in the Details column on the Tour page — the ones that have shown on-sale status so far — will automagically morph into links that say “flashback”. When you click on a “flashback” link, you’ll be taken to a page where you can both submit and read details about the concerts (setlists, photos, info, thoughts, etc.; M&G information and stories are also encouraged).
So wheeeee … let’s get this show on the road! We can’t wait to find out which doll is going to kick the tour off.
(Oh, and just a reminder that if you don’t see the new links appear, refresh the page or clear your browser cache.)
Tori has extended an invitation to the Pope to attend the first American Doll Posse show in Rome:
A MESSAGE FOR HIS HOLINESS POPE BENIDICT XVI
As a Daughter of the Christian Church I invite you, The Father of The Vatican to partake in Musical Communion as we commence The American Doll Posse World Tour in Rome.
Because it’s you, a small entourage would be welcome.
UN MESSAGIO PER SUA SANTITA BENEDETTO XVI
Sono una figlia della chiesa cristiana e dunque Vi invito Padre Del Vaticano, ad assistere ad una comunione musicale mentre iniziamo ‘The American Doll Posse Tour’ a Roma.
Visto che l’invito è per Voi, un piccolo entourage sarà il benvenuto.
Oooh, we hope he gives her a ride in the Popemobile! Or at least lets her try on the funny hat.
Thanks to jeremy, ciciley, and angie for sending this in.
The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports that Tori will be performing with Nickel Creek in Rochester in August:
The popular bluegrass-folk outfit Nickel Creek, on its “Farewell (For Now)” tour, and piano chanteuse Tori Amos join forces (they’ll even be onstage together some) for an 8 p.m. Aug. 16 show at the High Falls Festival Site.
Of course, to anyone paying even a little attention, that doesn’t make a whole lot of damn sense. Fortunately, a quick check of Ticketmaster reveals that that is just a bad case of the reporting blues. The piano chanteuse in question is actually Fiona Apple. Hmmm, maybe all those female piano-playing singer-songwriters really are interchangeable!
Tickets for the July 21st concert at Ra’anana Amphitheatre in Israel are on-sale now at www.tkts.co.il. Thanks to Matan for passing along that information!
Tori Amos to Israel
Another international star in Israel: Tori Amos to perform at Ra’anana Amphitheater in July as a part of her world tour
Published: 05.13.07, 17:59 / Israel Culture
Mark your calendar: Tori Amos, the woman and the piano, will arrive in Israel as a part of her new world tour and will perform at the Ra’anana Amphitheater July 21.
The man behind the event is producer Shuki Weiss, who is also responsible for bringing Evanescence, Blonde Redhead and probably the Rolling Stones and Britney Spears to Israel. This will be Amos’ second visit to Israel.
Amos, 43, recently launched a new album, “American Doll Posse,” which will be featured in a world tour that will begin in May. Amos will perform in Italy and Turkey before landing in Tel Aviv.
This will be Tori’s first performance in Israel since 1992’s Little Earthquakes tour. Tori had been in negotiations to perform there in 2005, but that didn’t work out, so this news is very exciting!
Thanks to Harel Tassa and Lisa R. for letting us know about this.
Folks who purchased American Doll Posse through iTunes began receiving their tour pre-sale codes yesterday (finally!). One bit of useful information is that the pre-sales will start sometime in June, so it might be time to thaw out your credit cards and make sure your mouse-clicking fingers are in tip-top shape. Alfred and Andre, thanks for sending this our way!
During Tori’s CBC Radio 1 appearance, she announced that her North American tour will take place in October, November and December, with Canadian dates in October.
Also during the radio program, the station played studio versions of “Yo George,” “Digital Ghost” and “Bouncing Off Clouds.” Thanks to Raena for the report!
Meanwhile, over at the Orange Lounge, Tori performed “Beauty of Speed,” “Velvet Revolution,” “Father’s Son” and “Almost Rosey.”
