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.
Whoopsie. It looks like we misunderstood Nick Salvato’s upcoming Cornell talk, titled “Cringe Criticism: On Embarrassment and Tori Amos.” Reader Melanie contacted Nick to get the goods on his colloquium (which, by the way, has been rescheduled to May 5). Here’s what he said:
I’ve heard that there has been some suspicion about — and hostility toward — the very notion of this talk (based solely on its title) in the Tori Amos “webiverse” — and I want to assure you (and, perhaps by way of you, others) that the talk is in no way intended as a disparagement of Amos’s music or of her fans (among whose number I count myself). Rather, the talk will be an exploration of the complex and understudied feeling of embarrassment; of what Amos’s music may teach us about that feeling; and of what distinguishes “critical embarrassment” (the version of the feeling experienced, on public occasions, by public intellectuals, academics, professors, and others of their stripes) from the run-of-the-mill or “garden variety” embarrassment that we all feel in everyday situations. In the end, the talk will be much more about embarrassment and the work of criticism than it is about Amos’s music.
Well, this is embarrassing. Our apologies, Nick. We hope some of you check out the talk!
