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.
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!
Thanks to Alexander’s Psychiatry for the tip!
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!
Jessika tells us that American Doll Posse is one of the prizes currently available at the Promosquad Prize Store. Rate enough songs to rack up 2500 points and it’s yours! Here’s what they have to say about Tori and the album:
Firing across the American psychological, social, and political landscape, Tori takes on the state of the world, war, and feminism. To help her, she adopts five personas—her American Doll Posse—who take their characteristics from Greek gods, but not their names: Clyde, Pip, Isabel, Santa, and Tori. You need a scorecard to keep track, but don’t worry – it’s still classic Tori Amos!
ABC2 in Australia will be rebroadcasting Tori Amos: Live At Madison Square Garden on Sunday, July 1st at 11:00 AM local time. Judging by the program schedule, this looks to be the hour-long Lifetime broadcast of The Concert For RAINN. (It was also aired yesterday, Tuesday, June 26th on ABC, for those of you with time machines.) Thanks to Nath for the tip!
This concert preview, from Népszabadság Online, the website for one of Hungary’s biggest newspapers, mentions that today’s show in Budapest is being filmed for a television broadcast. If anyone can provide more details, presumably once they become available, please let us know. Thanks to Maddict for pointing this out.
