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.
Beth Coulter, a longtime Toriphile and avid member of RDT in its heyday, died New Year’s Eve of brain cancer. She was 50 years old.
Beth — or Bethey, as we knew her — was a ruthless optimist, always fighting for what was right. Even in her last weeks, she went up against the PA housing authority to convince them to let a homeless friend of hers become her live-in caretaker. Ultimately, she won.
Bethey was a historian and writer. A number of her stories and articles are available on her Web site, Fairy Blessings. There, you can read several pieces she wrote about Tori. She also wrote about a fellow Toriphile, Rachel Sinai, who was murdered in 2000.
Until yesterday, Bethey’s Facebook page was active and full of loving goodbyes from people she knew. Unfortunately, her page has been removed or made private since then. However, we caught a quote from Bethey that one of her friends provided, and we’d like to share it:
I would like to teach the world that it is but the end of one journey, and the beginning of an even greater journey. If people can face death with anticipation instead of fear, I will feel I have done what I was meant to. And I hope to repeat Steve Jobs’ final words…“OH WOW, Oh Wow, oh wow…”
