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.
Like everyone else, we’re still waiting for more details about Unrepentant Geraldines and the remaining dates on the tour supporting the record but a couple tidbits of information surfaced today that may shed some light on the mystery that is Tori’s upcoming 2014 release.
First, a listing was added at ticketing vendor Tickets.com for a concert on July 17th at The Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington. The listing itself is neither active nor visible but it will come up in the site search for Tori Amos tickets there. While this date does not appear on either the theatre’s event calendar or ToriAmos.com, Tickets.com is the ticketing agency used by The Paramount so we are inclined to think this date will turn out to be true.
Update: Unsurprisingly, that listing has been removed from the search results on Tickets.com.
Second, Klassik Akzente, a classical music website that picked up on Tori as a result of Night of Hunters, reported on Unrepentant Geraldines today. The article was, for the most part, a rehash of last November’s press release but, at the end, noted that the record would be released on Friday, May 16th. If this release date holds true, that would likely mean a UK release on Monday, May 19th and a North American release on Tuesday the 20th. The May 23rd release date noted by Australian retailer JB HIFI would fit into this schedule nicely as Australian release dates often lag Europe and North America by a week or so.
Whether or not these bits of news hold true, of course, remains to be seen. Hopefully there will be an official announcement soon!
(By the way, we’re fairly confident that the March 18th release date mentioned in The Toronto Sun is off-the-mark as the number of release they have coming out during the week of March 18th is quite extensive! Most likely, the last group of albums should have been grouped under “The Rest of the Year.”)
Thanks to Chris P, Noah, Char for tipping us off about the above!
