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.
As confirmed on the program’s website, Tori will be the musical guest on Live with Kelly & Michael on Monday, July 14th. The syndicated program is carried on numerous television stations across the United States — check their station finder to find a station near you that does and what time it is on. Or set those DVRs. Or both.
Thanks to Lindsay for the tip!
By the way, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see some other television appearances added once the tour is underway. Keep an eye on Sue Trowbridge’s Late Night Lineups for guest information for national programs as well as your local listings on the off-chance that some regional appearances occur. If we hear of any, we’ll be sure to get the word out.
This time last week, South Africa, basking in the afterglow of the final show on the Unrepentant Geraldines Tour southern swing, was waving farewell to Tori as North America prepared for the tour to return to its shores and pick up again on the West Coast come mid-July. Between the pleasantries of Independence Day here in the States and the unpleasant intrusion of real life, the site has been a bit dormant so here’s a not-so-quick summary of recent happenings to get everyone — particularly ourselves — caught up.
First, a recap of the other things that happened during the South African tour while we were focusing on the live shows themselves.
And, from the non-South-African department…
Phew! Thanks to Mike Minanian, mkgtweety, Erin, Scott, choirguy, Lorna, Jennifer, and several anonymous contributors for all the links! We appreciate it!
Tori was on the ZDF program Fernsehgarten this morning, for a lip-sync performance of “Trouble’s Lament” on an open-air stage surrounded by clapping Germans.
While she is prominently featured on the sliding program grid on ZDF’s home page (if you go over far enough), she’s barely mentioned on the page for today’s program…but video of the appearance is available in ZDF’s archive — as well as on Youtube (although, apparently, not in Germany):
Thanks to DocSnyder for the video links!
During the clip, in which Tori is overdubbed, she answers questions about touring, her early years playing music in gay bars, Y Kant Tori Read, and her relationship with the piano. It also includes a bit of video from the Hamburg concert.
The complete 32 minute interview is also available on NDR’s website.
Many thanks to fanola for letting us know about this!
Update: The full interview has surfaced on YouTube…
A brief appearance on the Norwegian television program God Kveld Norge was aired on May 31st. During the spot, which was recorded before the Oslo concert on May 22nd, Tori discussed the impact of her rape and the healing and recovery, particularly with respect to her family’s help in bringing that about.
Video of the clip is now available on TV2’s website, along with an article that summarizes the appearance. Or just watch it on Youtube:
On the afternoon of May 20th, the day of the at Berlin’s Tempdrom, Tori appeared at the Kurfürstendamm Apple Store to discuss Unrepentant Geraldines in front of a live audience. In addition to discussing the record with moderator Johnny Haeusler, she fielded a number of questions from audience members as well.
The complete interview is available as a free video download as the latest episode of the Meet the Musician podcast on iTunes.
The appearance has also been uploaded to Youtube (of course) so if you do not use iTunes, you can watch is here too:
Tori was on the television program Go’ Morgen Danmark on TV2 on Saturday, May 24th to promote that evening’s concert in Copenhagen. There was a brief interview segment first followed by a performance of “Trouble’s Lament” later in the show.
Check them out below through the wondrous magic of Youtube! Thanks to Mads Grimstad for uploading those videos!
While in Oslo at the end this past week, Tori swung by Norwegian public radio NRK and appeared on two programs. Both are available for listening on-demand though November so you have no excuse if you miss ‘em now.
First, she was the special guest on the NRK P13 program Siri & Co. (warning! auto-plays!) on Thursday, May 22nd with the first half of the two hour program devoted entirely to Tori and her music. There was no live performances but lots of interesting conversation and songs covering her entire career, as well as discussion of her inspiration and artistry.
Second, on Friday, June 23rd, a brief interview with Tori was included during the NRK P2 program Spillerom (warning! auto-plays!). The clip includes discussion of anger in her art, the use of humor in “Giant’s Rolling Pin,” the song “Promise,” and the mythology of selkies. Again, there is no live performance but the entirety of “Selkie” was played as well as clips of the two other songs discussed.
Thanks to EarWithFeet and Kirsti for the tips about these two radio spots!
Just a quick reminder that the session and interview with Kara Manning recorded for WFUV back in April during the promotional swing through New York City will be aired tonight at 9:00 PM EDT. Tune in at 90.7 on your FM dial, online or via a plethora of other listening options.
WFUV let the cat out of the bag by posting video of three live songs on Youtube overnight. If you want to spoil yourself for the broadcast, jump the cut to check them out.
Update: Audio, videos and photos of the session have been posted on WFUV’s website!
Last weekend, when the tour was swinging through Glasgow, there was some chatter on Twitter from David Scott, BBC broadcaster and frontman for The Pearlfishers, about interviewing Tori for BBC Radio Scotland.
Guess we didn’t keep a watchful enough eye on things as the broadcast of that interview — and session — on the Friday, May 16th episode of The Culture Studio with Janice Forsyth slipped by without notice. Fortunately, the program is on iPlayer through the coming Friday so all of us who missed it can give it a listen.
The interview leads off the second hour of the program (well, after a tune from Kim wilde) and includes a performance of “Trouble’s Lament.” However, don’t miss a second session track recorded for the program, “Baker Baker,” which was played during the first hour, around the 42 minute mark.
The conversation is also available as a download from the Culture Studio Picks podcast. However, note that the podcast does not include the complete performance of “Trouble’s Lament” or any of “Baker Baker,” so you’ll have to go to the iPlayer stream to catch everything.
