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 is not presently on tour.
It’s confirmed … Tori will play the Fly Beeyond Festival in Athens on July 18th. She’ll be playing the same day as James and Air.
Thanks to Dust Road for letting us know.
Alexander tipped us off to the fact that acoustic singer-songwriter Joshua Radin will be opening for Tori on part of the European leg of her American Doll Posse tour. While Joshua will open for Tori from the June 17 show in Berlin to the July 4 show in London, English folk singer Seth Lakeman will open from the May 28 show in Rome to the June 13 show in Copenhagen. (Thanks to Fabz and BMac for the news on this.)
Joshua’s songs have earned recent play on popular TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs, and another of his songs, “Only You,” was remixed by Imogen Heap. Seth’s music has won a number of awards, both solo and with his group The Lakeman Brothers, with siblings Sean and Sam. Head to their Web sites to find out more.
Thanks to Carlo, Ennio, Yannick, and Margaux.
Amos prefers to support up-and-coming designers, so when planning this tour, she and Binns showcased emerging London designers in a variety of ways for the five dissimilar members. “When I think of Tori, I think of Freddy Mercury from Queen or David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. When they were on stage, they gave you a bloody show,” says Binns.
Joe sent in a new article from Women’s Wear Daily about how Tori and her stylist, Karen Binns, decked out the Dolls.

According to Ta Nea, one of the leading Greek newspapers, Tori (aka Τόρι Έιμος in Greece) will be performing in Athens, Greece on July 17th. Thanks to trickster on the YesSaid forum for pointing this out!
Cliff tipped us off to the fact that Ticketmaster has launched a page for the upcoming ADP tour listing several cities and the tantalizing promise that specific dates and venues — and, we’re guessing, on-sale dates — are coming soon. TM is also plugging the iTunes pre-order deal, which includes those pre-sale codes.
The cities Ticketmaster expects Tori to visit are:
Several of you pointed out this morning that both the standard and deluxe editions of American Doll Posse are available for pre-order on iTunes today, and shoppers can purchase “Big Wheel” there as of this morning.
Those who go in for the pre-order of either edition get “Big Wheel” now, and will receive the rest of the album’s tracks later, including “Miracle” — a bonus track we haven’t seen listed anywhere else — and access to a Ticketmaster pre-sale code, which is good for purchasing up to four tickets for upcoming Tori shows.
Edit: It looks like this offer is only being extended to fans on the US and Canada iTunes sites; folks at the UK site aren’t seeing listings for ADP or “Big Wheel” yet. However, folks in Italy — and perhaps other places in Europe, we haven’t heard — are able to buy “Bouncing off Clouds.”
Cheers to Kevin, Kat, Andre, Robbie, Robert, Adrian, Joshua, Kel, JD345, Fabz, Ursa, Christopher and Joe for letting us know!
Update: Well, we thought they were going on sale, but we were sadly mistaken. Zeynep sets us straight: camping tickets for Masstival will go on-sale on April 11th and regular day tickets (either for a single day or for both days of the festival) will go on-sale on April 16th. Tickets will be available at Biletix (that much, at least, we got right). Note: on May 16th, prices for day tickets increase 10YTL so it pays to get them early!
Benjamin Law writes in to tell us that he recently had the honor of interviewing Tori for Frankie, an Australian magazine at which he is a senior writer. The full interview will be, of course, published in a forthcoming issue, sometime before Tori’s Australian tour. Yes, you heard that right. Australian tour. During the interview, she confirmed that the ADP world tour would be taking her back Down Under:
I’m coming in September. We’re doing Australia, don’t you worry, posse’s coming to Australia. And the show starts [with] four different girls. Well, there’s four different starts, so it depends on what show you go to. And then after a fashion [swap], then Tori comes out.
Benjamin was also kind enough to provide us with an excerpt from the interview which takes a novel approach: the questions are lyrics from her previous work.
Is it sweet, your sting?
Not always. I’d like to tell you that it was. If I’m able to step into a compassionate place, then it can be sweet. However, if you cross the line — and that might have to do with my daughter — then you know what? I’m going to rip your arm off. And I won’t even add salt to it. You’re going to lose an appendage. If somebody starts winding up your child, then I just say, “Enough. Deal with the big girls. You wanna play that? You play with momma. I’ll play with you all fucking day, motherfucker.” That’s how I am, as a mother. Ferocious.
Australian fans, keep your eyes on newsstands between now and September!
Thanks to Petri and Joni.
