Wow. Tonight’s show had a great overall sound. It was my first experience in this concert hall and I will say that it is one of the better halls I have seen Tori in over the years. In The Springtime of His Voodoo was a major highlight as was Black Dove. The intensity was definitely there and the Bosey rang through clearly.
Seaside and Silent All These Years were exceptional in the T&BO act. :)

Just got back from the show. It was awesome. you do have a mistake there in the setlist. first enccore and second encore are switched around. only complaint about the show was not enough songs by herself. two is not enough.

I came all the way from Buenos Aires. Staying in Miami in a friend’s home, drove north to Ft Myers, picked ticket up in a will call window and enter to see my “came true” dream.
Everything was perfect. Tori was awesome, the sound sublime and I will never, ever forget this concert. Seaside, was out of the planet..amazing.
This was overall a great show. It was very Scarlet-heavy throughout the set. The highlight of the night was “Suede”; it was amazing! There was one disappointment, however, with a few intoxicated girls in the audience. They were very loud throughout the show (and singing off-key and loudly too). “Black Dove (January)” was a nightmare. They were singing “by the woods.. by the woods” completely out of tune. Tori was extremely annoyed. During “Silent all these years” Tori sang, “and I can hear….. THEM” and gave them a stare. I felt bad for Tori! Once again, this was an amazing show with a very good setlist.
This was a fantastic show. The sound was perfect – you could hear the piano perfectly (at least from where I was sitting). The set list was great — Glory of the 80s was on fire. It was interesting to hear Tear in your Hand early in the set rather than as an encore — it seemed to really start some energy that carried through the rest of the songs. Tonights version of Silent All These Years was gorgeous — even though we’ve heard the song many times, I really enjoyed hearing this version.
Isabel was not physically animated at all — basically just sat facing the keys and didn’t look at the audience much. But once “Tori” came out, the usual spunk was there. All in all, wonderful show!

What an awesome show! Went with my girlfriend and got in just in time for the opening act. Yoav was really good; I bought his EP.
Tori was in top form. She wasn’t talkative with the audience, but the the song choice was awesome. I was surprised to see so many Scarlet-era, but they were some of my favorite songs. She looked liked she was having a great time on stage, dancing around and smiling.
I really liked the performance of Scarlet’s Walk. I found myself staring at the Lamp prop she had. There definitely was a “journey” theme in this show.
Tonight’s show was a wonderful treat. I was very surprised at some aspects, but not at others. I won’t say that it is the best Tori concert I’ve been to, but it is in the top ranks.
I had expected to see either Isabel or Clyde tonight and Ft. Myers was treated with Isabel and her lamp. I was surprised to hear “Mountain” during her set, but I seemed to be bored with her. I loved hearing “Sweet Dreams” and “Sweet Sangria,” but Isabel seemed to lack character. She actually seemed quite dull to me. I was happy to see Tori come out in a blue body suit (those are so rock and roll).
Highlights, for me, were “Pancake,” “Tear In Your Hand,” and “Black Dove (January).” The best part of the show was the T&Bo section, though. This was the second time I have seen “Seaside” and “Silent All These Years” and they were MUCH better than what I had heard before.
The theme for tonight seemed to be “Whatever songs from Scarlet’s Walk we can fit in,” which I adored. Scarlet’s Walk was the first Tori CD I ever listened to and I love the songs she played from it. All in all, though, I cannot say that it was better than the Orlando show, which was bursting with energy.
The best part of the night was the rush. I got right up to the stage and I almost died when Tori came over to touch our hands. My hand couldn’t reach, but just being that close to her seemed electric. Hopefully I’ll get to meet her at the West Palm Beach show since they canceled the M&G during Orlando. :)
Seeing her in Fort Myers was actually a surprise anniversary present, so I was thrilled regardless. I had bought tickets for our group of friends for WPB the day of, but my beau wanted to see Tori for the first time w/ just me and not a big group. A second Tori show was the perfect present, and being there for his first Tori concert was just icing on the cake.
First of all, I’ve never had better seats for a Tori concert, and the sound was probably the best I’ve ever heard at ANY concert. Set wise, if you weren’t in a Scarlet-y mood, you were outta luck. I happened to really enjoy the choices. Naturally, Isabel started off w/ ‘Hey George’- which seemed really suitable for the vibe we were in store for with the Scarlet theme. She then lulled you in with the lamp as she took on Scarlet’s Walk. Given her sense of purpose, it was a nice surprise to see Isabel slip into “In the Springtime of His Voodoo.” Isabel was looking pretty foxy to me. Overall, I was impressed with Tori’s theatrical gifts and the gusto with which she seems to inhabit these dolls.
A highlight was hearing my bf’s reaction to the opening of “A Sorta Fairytale”...his gateway Tori. We laughed, because as a new fan, he was hoping to hear some more ‘mainstream’ (if the term can even exist for Tori) choices, and we had joked that he’d probably get something he’s not too familiar with, like ‘Pancake.’ Sure enough! As soon the melody started, I started to chuckle.
Sadly, there was an undeniable distraction the entire night – this REPUGNANT way-beyond-middle-aged drunken slag sitting in front of us. It wasn’t even her designated seat, but two other way younger, yet equally drunken twits invited the elder slag from the back row or wherever it was that Grendel (the oldest Tori fan ever) was getting imbibed to sit smack down in front of us. I don’t know how many times people around us had to tell her to be quiet. She was crass, singing loudly, standing up and doing nonsensical arm movements throughout the show as if awaiting the Rapture. (And don’t get me wrong…I’m all about a nice buzz during a show, but this was hands down the WORST behavior I’ve seen from anyone at any show, movie, concert, etc…let alone, someone her age). Security came by at least 3 times to tell her to calm down because she was annoying everyone. Her response, “Geez…I thought we were at a concert, people!” To all those reading this who were at the Ft. Myers show….Yes, she was as gross and obnoxious to sit behind as she was to you wherever in the audience you could see her from.
Nevertheless, Tori’s performance completely overwhelmed and that unsightly blemish on the evening evaporated from memory as soon ‘Code Red’ began.
I’m very excited about seeing her in WPB. Although it’s at the Kravis Center and not the Sound Advice Amphitheater, I’m hoping Tori will continue to bring some her best performances to So. Fla.
My only prayer, is that Grendel is still stuck in a drunk tank somewhere in Ft. Myers without the faintest hope of anyone setting bail in the near future.
Thanks for a great show Tori and thanks for taking me, Cooqs!!!!
A bit of a late review… I was thrilled when the band started playing Yo George since Isabel was the only doll I hadn’t seen prior to this show, and I was dying for Scarlet’s Walk. She puffed on her smoke in between lines of Yo George :) Mountain was a nice surprise since I’d missed the show where she debuted it, and I spent most of that song realizing I didn’t know the words, since they’re so hard to make out on the digital Scarlet’s Web version :P I like Isabel a lot, and I was really hoping for the extended version of Devils and Gods, but I was pleased with Isabel’s set (although surprised, since she only did one Isabel song from ADP). All of the Scarlet’s Walk songs that followed were fabulous, as that’s my favorite album, and Scarlet’s Walk itself was lovely, although the lamp swinging back and forth was semi-hypnotizing! Pancake and Seaside were great and Suede was a pleasant surprise. A nice, vibrant show.
