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 Guardian also weighed in on Tori’s two-night stand in London, reviewing the second show in the July 6th edition of the paper. The reviewer also gave the show 3 stars and had some reservations about the show—but at least she got Isabel’s name right. Thanks to Bob for the link. Read on for the review.
The Independent reviewed Tori’s first concert at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, giving it a mixed review with 3 of 5 stars. The reviewer seems to have gotten the dolls a little confused though as he is clearly writing about the first show but identifies the opener as Isabel instead of Santa. Jump the flip for the review.

Tori, with the assistance of Pip, rocked the Pet Sounds Stage at the Oxegen Festival in Ireland earlier tonight. As with other festivals, it was a shortened set for a festival setting with the set pretty evenly split between the two dolls. Pip’s set included “Cruel”, “Bliss” and “The Waitress” while Tori played the standard “Big Wheel”, “Cornflake Girl” and “Precious Things.” For the full set and to share your review of the performance, swing by the Oxegen page in the Tour section.
Incidentally, it appears that neither the Oxegen webcam nor the RTÉ broadcast included anything from Tori’s set — however, I must say that even Tori-less, RTÉ has been keeping my earwigs happy this afternoon. Sounds like it’s been a fine day — and night — out there at Punchestown!
Luke McNavey reviewed the Manchester concert for the music community site CD Times and was, after some initial disappointment, a fair bit more impressed than his counterpart at the Evening Times.
Tom Oliver attended Tori’s show at the Manchester Apollo on July 5th and, as his review in the Manchester Evening News reveals, wasn’t too impressed.
While there were no debuts or surprises in Manchester, fans seemed to really enjoy this show, the last normal full-on Tori concert for a while as we go into a stretch of festivals beginning July 7th. “Little Earthquakes,” “Juárez,” “Merman,” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” and “Spark” were the songs that have appeared least so far. And of course people always seem happy when “Rattlesnakes” shows up. Head over to the Tour section for reviews, photos, videos, and whatever else.
This Is London gave Tori’s first concert at the Hammersmith Apollo a glowing review which they published on their website. Thanks to Amanda, Marci, Richard and Matt E for sending in the link!
Many faces of Tori mark return to past glory

She had the spell-binding presence of Tori Amos, but the lady who strode on stage like a cross between a catwalk model and a high-class call girl had little else in common with the hippy chick singer whose kookiness rivals Kate Bush.
Staying true to character, Isabel kicked off a more politically-charged show than usual on July 4th with “Yo George” and “Sweet Dreams” heading up a set that ended with “Tombigbee.” Then “Home On The Range (Cherokee Edition)” put in a particularly rare appearance as the first song of the solo segment. And did we mention the stars-and-stripes jumpsuit? Politics aside, “A Sorta Fairytale” also made its debut. As always, to check out setlists, reviews, and whatever other goodies people have sent in for all the shows so far, head over to the Tour section.
Despite the difficult and sombre circumstances in London, Santa opened the concert last night with a playful sassiness which, from the reviews received, permeated Tori’s performance as well. “Spring Haze” was preceded by a powerful improvisation about independence. “Cool On Your Island” was debuted during the solo section of the show, which also included “China” and “Yes, Anastasia”. There was also an impromptu improv (hey, isn’t that
an oxymoron redundant? I should not write words before coffee.) when Tori messed up and stopped “Black Dove” before continuing on with “Bliss”. Check out the full setlist, some video clips (including both improvs) and others’ thoughts about the show on the first London page. And if you were there and haven’t already, feel free to post your thoughts about the show too!
Tonight at Rock Werchter, Tori had the final headlining slot on the Pyramid Marquee Stage. Pip opened the show playing several of her usual songs but concluded her portion of the evening with “The Waitress”. As it was a festival setting, there was neither a solo portion or any encores. The full setlist has been posted on the Rock Werchter page — thanks to Saar for texting updates to The Afterglow. If you attended and would like to share your thoughts about the show, please use the form at the bottom of the Werchter page!
