      Overall it was a great show! Tori and the guys had energy to spare. But, the biggest treat for me was to hear Clyde’s version of Juarez. It was so filled with haunting emotion (as opposed to Pip’s more violent sounding version).

      I have to say that I was not thoroughly impressed with this show for several reasons.

      One – the crowd. They seemed incredibly bored. Many left during Tori’s set. I didn’t find them to be very respectful.

      Choice of Doll – Clyde is probably my least ‘favorite’ of all the dolls. I was really hoping for Pip or Santa.

      And honestly – Tori seemed bored and uninterested. She must be exhausted… but it seemed she wasn’t wanting to be there and wasn’t up on her game last night.

      Still – I’m an avid fan and am going to the Portland and Seattle shows as well. Hoping the fans there and Tori will bring it.

      Was nice to hear Not The Red Baron and Black Swan. Rare ones. She did a great job during Fairytale and Bliss. But I may be the only one, I am so DAMN tired of Cornflake Girl. Get rid of it.

      Hope everyone had a good time.

      This was my first show of the tour, and I figured for awhile that Boise would get Clyde, especially once I found out that SLC got Pip (figured that one, too—SLC has a pretty strong dark side). I had rockin’ seats for this show, so it goes without saying that everyone around me was pretty into it. It also looked like Tori and the band were having fun.

      Clyde is one of the more mellow dolls; she’s not so in-your-face like Pip or Santa, and I think that can get misconstrued as “bored”. Clyde’s set was great, though—Bouncing Off Clouds is one of my favorites from ADP, and Upside Down (cheers, Natasha!) and Mary were wonderful treats.

      Tori’s set was obviously fantastic—I’ve heard killer reviews of Big Wheel and Code Red, and Tori & Co. did not disappoint. Not the Red Baron and Black Dove (January) were other highlights. I can’t stand Northern Lad (sorry, my fellow Toriphiles—I know a lot of you love it), and was glad she had sound issues and switched to Putting the Damage On. Concertina was also beautiful.

      Overall good show, overall great day! Boise seems like a chill city, and as always, I met some very nice EWF. Here’s a particular shoutout to Amy, Natasha, and Heather—you guys are great! I wish I could take you with me on the Pacific Northwest loop!

      I enjoyed the Boise show. I grew up here, came back to visit to see the show, and I thought she captured the energy of Boise in winter really well – a lot of really fitting songs, very well performed. It was nice to hear some rarer songs too. But I agree, she didn’t seem all that energized or happy to be here. I saw her the night before in Salt Lake and she was totally different. Here she didn’t seem all that connected to the audience, but her voice and the piano were excellent.

      I saw the Salt Lake show on Thursday and then my sister and I drove to Boise the next day to catch this show. I thought it was completely different from SLC but just as good. I also figured Boise would be Clyde (I was hoping for Santa) but it turns out that Clyde was really great. Tori is such a masterful performer. I loved Clyde’s set and it was great to hear her take on some of the older Tori songs.

      We were on the second row so maybe my perception of the crowd was different from some other people’s, but I thought the crowd was amazing. I thought they were so focused and respectful but also brought a lot of energy. I’ve never been to a Tori concert with a crowd like that- it was awesome. (Thanks Boise! You guys are great!) I also thought that Tori really tailored the concert to the particular crowd and energy that night. The intro to Not the Red Baron was so rich, moving, and long! :) Such a treat, and not something that she could do at every concert. She really does seem to read the mood of the room well.

      Juarez was fantastic. It was haunting, powerful, mesmerizing. Other highlights were Tear In Your Hand, the improv after she quit playing Northern Lad (it’s always fun to hear something that no one’s ever heard before, including Tori herself), and Black Dove.

      I thought Tori seemed perfectly happy to be there, just a little more content and introspective. I think I’m hooked on coming to Boise shows.

      The Meet’n’greet was pretty tiny, probably more due to the cold weather than anything else and all of those present, which was less then 20 all got there turns talking to Tori. It was very sweet and very unrushed.

      I felt that Clyde would come out tonight. The venue is beautiful, a concert hall used to classical music, I figured that Clyde would feel comfortable in that setting. I was right. Seeing shows opened by Pip and Clyde are two different experiences. Pip was all infectious anger but Clyde, is stoic, silently intense, preferring to let the songs speak for themselves. She came out with a black cloth over her eyes which she dropped in front of the piano. “Bouncing off Clouds” was fun and “Little Earthquakes” was great to hear. “Juarez”, which I don’t think is anyone’s favorite song, but it is very powerful. “Upside Down” was a great surprise for me, since I adore that song. “Mary” followed it and while this isn’t one of my favorites, I can appreciate getting 2 b-sides in a row. “Beauty of Speed” is a gorgeous song and the “colors changing” was nice with the different colored lights but not the “amazing lights” I had thought they would be. I guess they were so built up in my mind that they couldn’t live up. Clyde left and picked up her scarf as she went. I had heard that Clyde didn’t look much at the audience, but she didn’t seem shy last night, she looked at the audience as much as Tori normally does and while she didn’t seem cheerful at any point she didn’t look uncomfortable on the stage. Costume change and then “Big Wheel”, which I must say, is really growing on me, since I didn’t care for it at first, but it could become as popular as one of her other singles. “Fairytale” was lovely, as Scarlet’s Walk is a the definitive road trip album and after being on the road for 5 hours that day it was very lovely to hear. “Tear in Your Hand” was sort of weird in the middle since we’re all so used to it being an encore, but anything from Earthquakes is good to hear.

      When she started “Northern Lad” I was excited, but the improv about messing up and her boys helping her out and it being a Spud day was so cool. I was even happier to hear “Damage” as any Pele is good Pele. I love this song more then “Northern Lad”, so it was a positive trade in my eyes. The improv was gorgeous and apparently similar to what she had performed in Houston. I’ll need to listen to it more in the bootleg. It said Coraline or maybe “call Rolene” a lot and something about Navajo, it reminded me of the last show she played in this theatre on the Scarlet’s Walk tour in 2003 and it was the day that we learned of the first women to die in the Iraq war, who also happened to be a Hopi Indian, perhaps Tori was reminded of this or maybe else brought it out, but that’s what I thought of. I now felt spoiled getting 2 improvs and this made up for the lack of improvs in the Salt lake show. What came next was also a repeat from the 2003 Boise show and that was “Not the Red Baron” which was heartbreakingly beautiful and poignant. But what happened next I was not prepared for. Seeing Tori in salt lake at the sound check I had asked if in Idaho, “Black Swan” could come and Tori’s expressions told me that she thought it was a plausible idea. At the meet’n’greet before the show I reminder about my request and she once again wrote it on her hand and asked if we’d be at any other show and I told her this was my last. So seeing as how this was the 2nd song of the 2 song solo time when she started the piano intro it sure sounded like “Black Swan” to me, but I didn’t want to get too excited just in case I was wrong, as piano intros can turn into something else quickly. I was not disappointed when those first notes rang out for “Black Swan” I started to tear up. This song reminds me of when my husband was in Iraq. I would wait for him to call me everyday, so whenever I hear “did Eric call, by the way” it brings it all back. I’ve been to Tori shows on many tours and while there have been touching moments where I’ve teared up, I’ve never really cried, maybe shed a tear, but I full on cried for a minute. It really meant something to me those Tori was willing to play a song, just because I wanted to hear it and just because it would mean something to me. Thinking about it now makes the tears come to my eyes. This is why I’m still a fan almost a decade and half later, because even though she’s a superstar now and has people fawning all over her and her every whim, she hasn’t forgotten the people that buy her records and she still gives the fans, the “little people” the respect that we deserve. This is moment I will treasure even when I’m old and gray. Coming off that high was “Black Dove” which does always seem to go with “Black Swan”. Birds of a feather I suppose. “Bliss” was rocking and of course “Code Red”, which while growing more on me, isn’t really hitting home for me. Maybe first base. Maybe. Some people are saying that “Cornflake Girl” and “Precious Things” are getting old. I can see that if you’re going to every show. You hear it so many times, but most people only see one, maybe two shows. Those people want to hear the hits. I’m really struck by how much fun Tori still has with them every night. She wasn’t phoning in these standards, she was having a good old time, and I think it has to do with the skill that these songs take. She’s rocking that piano for “Precious” and “Cornflake” and while these songs are probably what make the shows seem more like an actual job than just awesome fun, she still finds a way to enjoy them and I think she feeds off how the people respond to it.

      I was thrilled to hear “Concertina” as this is my favorite off of Venus and was impressed to see how much Venus made it into tonight’s show, it’s an album I tend to forget but I think I’ll be pulling out again and giving it a whirl. Finished off with “Hey Jupiter” of course. During this song and through out the whole set I noticed that Tori skipped whatever high parts she could get away with. Maybe it’s because this was her 3rd night in row performing and she was tired or maybe she was holding back for some reason and while I missed those high parts I don’t think it took too much away from the evening. I have to put this as my all-time favorite show because of the T & Bo section solely. Addressing the crowd, I think they were really trying to be respectful, this was a great venue and not some arena, the seats were all plush and soft and while Tori rocked it, it wasn’t all that dancey tonight. I wasn’t feeling like grooving even through “Bliss” or “Cornflake”, I don’t know why, it just wasn’t that kind of a night. Plus it’s Idaho, it’s not freaking New York, and it’s possible that some of the crowd was just there to pass the evening. Myself, I know it was an incredible night and I will be glad that I sacrificed that time driving, the money for hotels and gas because what Tori gives is priceless.

      I’ll try to get some of my photos from the meet’n‘greet up and maybe some videos from Boise and Salt Lake up at my blog.

      [We'd, of course, be happy to host some of your pictures here as well!]

      This was my second time seeing Clyde during this tour and I’d have to say that I love the lighting for the Clyde set. It’s so beautiful! Especially during Beauty of Speed.

      Also, I was never a big fan of Not the Red Baron, but this was by far the best version I’ve ever heard of the song. I’m happy this show has been released on Legs and Boots!

      And one more thing – I took some nice photos of the show and meet and greet that I will post here shortly. If anyone wants any pictures or has any that they would like to share with me, please email me at amywasnidge@gmail.com. Thanks!

      Also – Take To The Sky was on the setlist to be played after Northern Lad, but it wasn’t played obviously. :)

      I LOVED it! It’s so funny because this is a completely different concert than the last time I saw Tori, sadly enough, I can’t remember which tour it was. However, something happens at her concerts, it’s palpable, but almost indescribable. I end up focusing on her and lose everything else around me, a religious experience of sorts. I thought it was all brilliant, and I think, unfortunately, that the people who left, that was probably the first Tori concert they ever went to, and they weren’t really sure to expect. I was so happy to hear January- it’s one of my all time favorites. Tori is a master, and I feel honored to have been able to go to another concert of hers. I took a friend of mine from work, and he said it was amazing, better than he expected, and he’s a convert now! PS- please post any pic’s you can- we Boiseans would really appreciate it!
