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.
American Doll Posse will be BBC 6 Music’s Album Of The Day on May 1st. They’ll be playing tracks from the album through the day, post a detailed review on their site and, as lucy points out, might do some other small features on Tori during the day as well.
EverythingTori has posted about a number of upcoming appearances Tori will be making to promote the release of American Doll Posse. They confirm KROQ’s Kevin and Bean on April 26th, Letterman on May 3rd and Regis and Kelly on May 4th. They also have a date for the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson appearance which we did not previously know: May 17th. (Note, however, that this appearance will be taped on April 26th, per OCA, where you can request tickets for the taping.)
Damien, Matt, Scott and CrystallineColey wrote in to tell us that Tori’s MySpace page now lets you listen to every ADP track (well, except “Miracle”). Swing on over and let your ears have a little pre-release party.
According to Late Night Lineups, Tori will be one of the guests on Live with Regis and Kelly on Friday, May 4th. That’s a little too far in the future for the show’s website to confirm yet, the late night line-ups site has been a reliable source of talk show guests for a long time so there is no reason to doubt. Thanks to Cliff for that tip!
We have it on good authority that Tori will appear on KROQ’s Kevin & Bean Show April 26. We can’t wait to hear what they’ll make of the Posse.
Tori has been inducted into the WTTS Cage Match Hall of Fame after “Big Wheel” won said cage match 10 nights in a row. Many thanks to all of you for keeping us well informed on Tori’s progress.
While we’re on the topic of “Big Wheel,” the single was named one of Baltimore Sun writer Glenn Gamboa’s songs of the week he pegs it as “her most likable work in years.” Thanks to Missy for sending this one in.
Pink Is The New Blog is offering a contest to win a copy of American Doll Posse. To enter, all you need to do is send them a picture of yourself and Tori (or yourself with a piece of Tori memorabilia) that has been “Pinkified” with hearts, stars, or other cute doodads. Hey, at least you don’t have to slap a wig on your head. David, thanks for the pointer.
Tori appeared on ITV’s “Loose Women” program today in England, gave a short interview, and performed two songs, “Velvet Revolution” and “Programmable Soda.” During the show, Tori wore her long red wig and a silver-and-black dress. She discussed the Posse girls, the makeup and clothes she’s using for those girls, and reiterated the line about having needed to “play kooky for the Brits.” (She apparently got pretty friendly with some bikers, too.)
If anyone’s got a complete transcript of the interview, send it over!
Rich, Mel, Barbara, and Stuart, thanks for filling us in!
Entertainment Weekly offers a quick review of the “Big Wheel” video”:
Perhaps there’s a subliminal message embedded in the pixilation technique Tori Amos uses to animate herself in her new video for “Big Wheel,” but I’ve now played it three times in a row, and would definitely play it again if I wasn’t worried about driving my coworkers absolutely batty. (Oh, who am I kidding? Again! Again!) Seriously, though, aside from a mix of saucy-dame outfits and a few simple props — a cigarette holder, a martini glass, a chicken, to name a few — the clip couldn’t have cost much. And yet it doesn’t look low-rent at all. Not only that, but the song’s a winner, too. I mean, if you’re going to shout letters over a thumping piano line, “I-I-I am a M.I.L.F./Don’t you forget” kinda beats “This s—- is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S,” no? But don’t take my word.

We don’t necessarily agree with EW, mind you, but we’re glad this video is making some people happy. Kudos to Roel and Lenore for passing this our way.
