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.
Tori will be Simon Mayo’s guest when he sits in for Johnnie Walker on BBC Radio 2 on Sunday, September 17th at 1700 hours BST (that’s Noon EST/9 AM PST). Tune in at 88-91 FM or listen on DAB Digital Radio, Digital TV or stream Radio 2 online.
This has also been added to our Calendar—keep an eye on it for upcoming events!
Following up on a previous post, it appears that Tori will be included in the Between The Covers television program. According to the program description, Tori’s cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” will be part of the show. It will air several times over the next week:
Interestingly, the program description mentions a DVD release in addition to the CD, something that we have not heard about previously. One presumes that the television program is either clips from the DVD or that the program will become the DVD release.
The site says you’ll need to have the Mozilla ActiveX plug-in for this.
Syrus the Talking Dreadlock interviews Tori. Mayhem ensues.
Warning: No sense of humor, no clicky.
DJ Darren DeVivo of radio station 90.7 (WFUV) in New York did a four-song tribute for Tori’s birthday around noon on the 22nd. He gave Tori’s rarer recordings some air time:
A Case Of You
Heart Of Gold
We’re very impressed!
[Addendum: A lot of you have wondered, “Why all covers? Couldn’t they have included at least one of Tori’s originals?” Turns out it was billed as a collection of Tori covers during the broadcast. View the entire playlist for the August 22nd program.]
Finally, Showtime Too will be airing Mayor Of The Sunset Strip, a documentary about Los Angeles deejay Rodney Bingenheimer, on Monday, August 14th at 3:55AM Eastern (late Sunday night ). Tori is one of many performers and celebrities who were interviewed for this film so her face time is quite minimal.
The episode of Music Express, a program consisting of interviews of pop and rock musicians by RTE 2FM DJ Dave Fanning, featuring Tori will be aired several times in the coming days on Ovation, an arts cable television station in North America. Airtimes, all Eastern, are:
As mentioned on The Dent, this program was originally broadcast on July 23, 2005. No one sent in any information about the interview to Mikewhy then, so if anyone can provide some details, we’d be happy to post them for posterity!
Thanks to Jessica for pointing this out (and apologies for taking a few days to get it posted—long story!).
Coralann’s TIVO reports—and A&E’s website confirms—that Tori will be on Breakfast With the Arts on Sunday, July 2nd. The program is on A&E and is shown at 8 AM Eastern / 7 AM Central. While A&E’s website does not specifically say that this is a repeat of the appearance Tori made on this program in March of 2005, RockOnTV indicates that is the case. Check your local listings for channel and time in your area. Thanks also to Carl for letting us know about this!
UPDATE: The Los Angeles Times calendarlive.com implies that this might be a new appearance:
Red-headed stranger: Singer-songwriter Tori Amos is profiled on a new edition of “Breakfast With the Arts” (8 a.m. Sunday, A&E).
While I think we would have heard something official if it was, it doesn’t hurt to rev up those DVRs, DVD recorders and, in my case anyway, VHS decks just in case.
Following up on a previous story, KROQ has posted the results of their 500 Most Requested Songs of All-Time. Despite having four songs on the ballot, only one of Tori’s tunes made the list: “Cornflake Girl” coming in at #269. (Interestingly, Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, covered notably by our heroine, placed second—wouldn’t it have been intriguing if her cover had somehow managed to make the list!)
Tori has four songs on the ballot for KROQ’s 500 Most Requested Songs Of All-Time which listeners can vote for on their website. The four songs are “Cornflake Girl,” “God,” “Crucify,” and “A Sorta Fairytale” though, if one prefers to throw their vote away on a less popular song, you can write-in selections as well. KROQ will be counting down the 500 songs on Memorial Day weekend. If you can’t listen on your FM dial in the Los Angeles area, KROQ Street Team members can listen to their stream online to hear the voting results and see where Tori places.
Thanks to Brendan for telling us about this!
