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.
We know that Japanese fans won’t get their mitts on locally released copies of ADP until July 18, so Yuta Onaga sent in something to tide you over: Sony’s Japanese ADP site. There, you can see the tracklisting, photos of all the dolls, and plenty more.
The BBC have added an 11 minute clip from Tori’s performance to Channel T, their online coverage of the T In The Park festival. The clip includes “Big Wheel” and “Cornflake Girl”. You can view it using the Flash player right on that page (though you’ll have to scroll down to the bottom of the clip list to find Tori) or, if you prefer, there are Windows Media and Real Audio streams available as well.
Thanks to Andi for spotting this!
Update: Alexander’s Psychiatry has captured the video and posted the two songs to YouTube:
Jörg from the Toriforum.de had the opportunity to interview Tori for the German telelvision station ProSieben and the interview has been posted online for your viewing pleasure. Jörg asked some excellent questions and Tori addresses a number of interesting topics including the musical. Congratulations to Jörg for getting this opportunity! And thanks to jennytalula for letting us know about this!
Prior to her appearance at Rock Werchter on July 1st, Tori stopped by Belgian radio station Studio Brussel where she was interviewed briefly. Listen to the interview clip, which requires Windows Media Player, by clicking on the text “Ze geniet van de energie” at the Studio Brussel page linked above or try this direct link to their embedded audio player.
Two lovely photographs of Tori were also posted on the Studio Brussel page. The first is thumbnailed here and both are included in their full-sized glory beyond the cut. And though she’s definitely worn it before,
we don’t know anything about the lovely necklace she’s wearing. Do you? See update.
Irish radio RTÉ is broadcasting from the Oxegen 2007 festival on 2fm (Real Audio stream) and their digital-only station, 2XM (Real Audio stream). Unfortunately, their broadcast schedule, does not specify which performances will be aired when, so it is not clear if any of Tori’s set will be aired or not. There is a good chance though as they are recording music on four of the six stages at the festival.
As a reminder, Tori is slated to play the Pet Sounds Stage at 9:10pm local time.
Update: Also, Oxegen has a live webcam as well. Chances that anything they stream will be from the main stage, but you never know!
Thanks to Marae for letting us know that the BBC will be providing extensive coverage of T In The Park, where Tori plays on Sunday. They are posting on-demand video on Channel T and there will also be radio and television coverage on BBC Three, BBC Scotland One and Two, Radio 1 and Radio Scotland.
BBC Three will have T In The Park programming hosted by Lauren Laverne, Zane Lowe and Dougie Anderson starting at 7pm and 10pm on Sunday. Tori is not included in either listing explicitly, but hopefully they may show some of her performance during the broadcast.
Radio 1’s Edith Bowman and Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway will look back at the festival on Monday at 7pm on Radio 1.
If the radio and television broadcasts pass over Tori and focus on the higher-profile headliners, hopefully Channel T will deliver some video highlights for us….
Clément also points out that Radio Suisse Romande broadcast an interview with Tori during Gérard Suter’s program Radio Paradiso back on June 12th.
It’s not clear when this interview was conducted. The interview was conducted in London in March (thanks Aimee), includes several album tracks, but no live performances, and is archived in Real Audio. Note: Tori’s answers are overdubbed in, if I am not mistaken, French, though you can still mostly make out what Tori is saying.
Also, a quick search of RSR’s site pulls up a future listing which appears to indicate that Radio Paradiso will be broadcasting from the Montreux Jazz Festival, where Tori is playing on July 11th. Whether or not they actually air any of the live performances though is not clear.
Clément reminded us that we hadn’t mentioned that Tori’s April 30th appearance on Monte Carlo Nights has been archived and streamed on demand in either Real Audio or Windows Media (click on your preferred format when you follow the previous link). Unfortunately, the several songs she performed live during the session — “Father’s Son”, “Beauty of Speed”, “Almost Rosey” and “Silent All These Years” — are not complete, but the interview segments with Nick The Nightfly are intact and good listening (and, I’m sure if you poke around the recesses of the Intertube long enough, one can locate the complete songs as well).
Dave Fanning’s 2005 interview with Tori on the program Music Express will be re-run two more times in July on Ovation. If you’re one of the few who receive this cable television channel, look for it at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, July 17th and again later that night at 2:00 AM. Ovation’s description of the program goes like this:
The singer/songwriter/pianist Tori Amos is known for combining the stark lyrical attack of alternative rock with a distinctly ’70’s musical approach. Her music falls somewhere between the orchestrated meditations of Kate Bush and the stripped-down poetics of Joni Mitchell. Many credit Amos with single-handedly reviving the piano as a sexy, rock and roll instrument. In this interview, Amos talks about her ninth album, The Beekeeper, which weaves together ancient feminine mysteries and Biblical mythology represented through allegories of queen bees and gardens.
Thanks to Amy and Mallory for the tip! Incidentally, we’re still lacking any details about this interview, so if anyone would care to describe or transcribe it, we’d greatly appreciate it!
Update: Thanks to Lorna for pointing out that Ovation is now carried by DirecTV on channel 274. Hopefully that will allow more people to catch this elusive interview!
Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie are listing Tori as an upcoming guest on their BBC Radio 2 program on Tuesday, July 17th. Tori’s appearance is specified as “Show & Tell With Tori Amos”. We’re not sure what that means but, judging from the past playlists, it appears that it’s one of those play-a-track and tell-us-why-you-played it. (I’ve got 5 quid on Led Zep to win, Joni Mitchell to place, and Carole King to show.) Then again, maybe she’ll talk about wig mechanics! In any case, tune in to Radio 2 at 8pm British Daylight Time to find out!
