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.
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
Lisa Verrico, London Lite 04.07.07
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!
Update: Tori’s set at Werchter will be webcast! Her set begins at 11:30 PM local time on the Pyramid Marquee stage. (That’s 5:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time, and 2:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time for the North Americans … and sometime tomorrow for the Australians and New Zealanders.)
Update: Despite saying that they were going to stream it, they don’t seem to be doing so… :-(
Update: The stream kicked in for the last half of the final song: “Precious Things”. Woo hoo!
John has some pretty exciting news to share:
“I talked with Tori in Zurich and got some really awesome news. I asked her if she planned on releasing the blogs as a comprehensive booklet once the tour was over. She said yes, probably as a combination with a live DVD that was going to come out after the US tour. She said that each of the dolls would have their own show (and although she was somewhat vague, I am pretty sure she meant that each of the dolls would have their own DVD release). When I told Tori that this idea reminded me of the bootleg release from last tour, she confirmed that each show will be available in mp3 format after the show during the US tour! She said that you will sign up for it at the show, and receive your soundboard copy of the bootleg after the show is over! She was very excited about this idea. She did not mention if the shows will be available to people who are not at the specific shows.”
Cool! Even though Tori didn’t specify whether a show would be available to people who didn’t attend, would it make sense to go through that much effort only to withhold such items from the broader fanbase? Not likely. There’s a huge fan market for Tori boots, and she ain’t no ding-dong.
Isabel opened tonight’s concert in Frankfurt. Thanks to Saar for sending the setlist in via text messages to The Afterglow. Two songs were performed for the first time on the tour: “The Wrong Band” (which has only been played live eight times ever previously!) and “Tombigbee”. Saar also said that “Take Me With You” was on the written setlist but replaced by “Marianne” during the actual performance.
