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.
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.

The rarest of the dolls, Clyde, opened for just the fourth time this evening in at the Kongresshaus in Zürich. Interestingly, she only played two of her songs (“Bouncing Off Clouds” and “Beauty of Speed”), filling out the balance of her opening set with two of Tori’s (“Little Earthquakes” and “Juarez”) and one cover (“Rattlesnakes”). Three songs were played for the first time on the tour: “Beulah Land”, “Etienne”, and “1000 Oceans”. See the complete setlist and, if you attended the show, post a review about the evening on the Zürich concert page.
At the Ljubljana M&G, Lexa asked Tori if she would be going to New Zealand at all. Despite the great petition effort by fans, Tori said no. But really, don’t you deserve a vacation?
Bean contacted Ticketmaster to ask about the iTunes presale that was supposed to start sometime this month.
Ticketmaster said the presale will be in July. They apologize for any inconvenience.
EverythingTori has announced that two more shows have been added to the Australian leg of the American Doll Posse tour: a third show at the Sydney Opera House on September 25th and a second show at the Perth Concert Hall on September 28th. Tickets for both shows go on sale to the general public at 9:00 AM local time on Monday, July 2nd, with Internet pre-sales starting at Noon local time on Friday, June 29th lasting through Sunday at 5:00 PM. Sydney tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster and the Opera House box office while Perth tickets are handled by BOCS Ticketing.
Thanks to Robert for the heads up.
