A good show, some nice surprises in the setlist.
China and Curtain Call stood out, and Horses sounded at first like it might be Ruby through the Looking Glass or Carbon.
Bells for Her was touching as always, and she really went to town at the end of Strong Black Vine. People near me got really excited when she started Martha’s Foolish Ginger and Marys of the Sea, and they were both beautiful too.
Everyone was up on their feet for Big Wheel, and although she didn’t talk to the audience much it was still an upbeat show.
My only gripe is that during Lizard Lounge there was some very distracting music coming from the left of the stage, it was dance stuff. A woman near me spoke to a security guard and he went to check it out (came back muttering about someone’s iPod, although I’m not sure that could have produced such a racket). It ended pretty quickly, but it was audible and just loud enough to make it really hard to focus on Etienne, which was a shame. Think that problem only affected people at front left, as no one at the back seemed to be looking that way.
The music during the Lizard Lounge bugged me too – it was just loud enough to hear. I thought it was someone’s iPod left on in a pocket – but I recognised the song and it was the same Blondie that was playing before Tori came on. So someone in the sound booth hadn’t put a slider down far enough – oops. At least they sorted it in the end.
Good show though! :-)
What a great show!
Tori looked and sounded beautiful.
Highlights were ‘Hotel’ a gorgeous acoustic version of ‘Taxi Ride’, and A Sorta Fairytale, which I was praying she’d play.
The Royal Concert Hall is in my opinion a much better venue than the Clyde Auditorium. Its a lot more intimate and suited to Tori’s type of performance.
A wonderful evening with probably the most diverse setlist i’ve experienced at a Tori concert.
Being in the front row, the noise did distract me during lizard lounge.. but nevertheless it was sorted and the show was AMAZING!
I was a little disappointed that she didn’t speak much – i had waited since 10am for the M&G which obviously didn’t take place.
However, i soon got over that with her wonderful setlist, standing out to me were taxi ride, pretty good year and precious things (always!). LOVED IT.
Excellent show – she really seemed to be enjoying herself on stage.
For me – Hotel was just wonderful and Etienne was beautiful.
Great night and very intimate venue, I was row L but it seemed really close.
Highlight for me was probably Taxi Ride although it was a real shame that there was noise going on. I’m sure Tori could hear it but she was great and played through it.
There was very little talking from Tori but what she did say was very nice.
Strong Black Vine comes alive with the Waitress-esque live embellishments.
While I wouldn’t say many of my favourites were played, I don’t mind, I like just how random the sets can be, with a nice mix of albums.
I was hoping to hear Hotel live, and I did, awesome.
Only other downside was the guys behind me and further along who were filled with lovely things to say about Tori but really didn’t know when to shut up.
The stage rush didn’t happen until the encore, which is how it should be, none of this half-way-through nonsense.
I want to go again!
AmAAAAAZING set list, so many perfect songs for the evening!!! Highlights were Horses (my friend’s favourite song, so I was mega chuffed for her – plus it was beautiful), Martha’s Foolish Ginger, and Taxi Ride, which is so significant to me because it reminds me of my friend who died earlier this year at a young age. It was so tragic and beautiful and perfectly performed, I genuinely felt like Tori had written the set list just for me and my friend.
I also loved Pretty Good Year (another personal song for me) and A Sorta Fairytale, which I didn’t expect but was so excited by because it’s one of my favourite songs.
Tori’s excitement and enthusiasm is so radiant and infectious, her performance is at it’s best ever, and this really has been Tori at her ultimate best. The two nights I’ve seen her in the UK have left little to be desired (would love to hear 1000 Oceans live as it’s my favourite). I’m praying she does a mini-tour in support of the Solstice album!!!
When she played China i almost cried – to have listened to Little Earthquakes thousands of times and to have finally heard that song played live killed me. I also found myself thrashing during Precious Things and Strong Black Vine – what a concert.
My favourite moments were Taxi Ride, China, her entrance + Give and Big Wheel – she really knows how to send folks crazy!
This was the first proper concert I’ve been to ever. I’ve been a Tori fan for about 6 years to the point of obsession, but I never came from a concert going background, or had many friends who did.
I knew Tori could perform fantastically well live, and that she is extraordinary, but nothing could have prepared me for just how outstanding she was that night. The setlist was amazing and reduced me to tears at least four of five times (highlights were Pretty Good Year, Hotel, Cornflake Girl, A Sorta Fairytale and Precious Things). There was a really good mix of songs from the albums and the newer material sounded great. The Beekeeper material was beautifully done and a bit of a surprise, and the choice of Horses and Pretty Good Year solo was outstanding. I also felt that the lighting and the staging was fantastic, and the sound was incredible.
The atmosphere was completely electric.
I feel like there’s nothing that I can really say except she was incredible, she nailed everything, and it was the best night of my life. My partner bought the tickets as a birthday present and he was excited, but not sure how much he would really enjoy it, not being overly familiar with her stuff. He now has many of my albums on loan and was well and truly converted.
The show surpassed all my expectations of how amazing she is – how one woman can have the talent to write so much of such beautiful and exceptional quality, then play and perform it to such a standard night after night just blows me away.
This was my eighth Tori gig and I thought she was in the finest voice I have ever heard her. This is a much better venue than the Clyde Auditorium – much more intimate and with better sound quality. I had a great seat and the best view I have ever had of Tori. I first saw Tori here many years ago on her Boys for Pele tour and that remains my favourite of all. My problem with this show was Tori’s song choice. She has such a large repertoire to choose from and she obviously had a great time with the songs she sang – she really seemed to enjoy it. It’s just that she didn’t sing any of my personal favourites – I much prefer the slow songs and there were just too many ‘rocky’ songs for me in this show. But that’s just a personal choice. Tori has no bigger admirer than me and I still really enjoyed the show. Just wish I had moved down to the front at the end to have my hand touched by the Presence!
I heard the music going on during Taxi Ride – it was unbelievable that no-one did anything about it more quickly… but it didn’t spoil the show, which was amazing. Mary’s of the sea and Hotel were probably my favourites (and Etienne). I saw her at the Concert Hall first time for Boys for Pele too! I was right up the back then, but I was only 8 rows from stage this time. Agree that Concert Hall is better venue than Clyde Auditorium. Plus not so much room to rush the stage (which always stresses me out – to rush or not to rush…???). Great show, but seemed to be over so quickly. So much material to choose from, and so much of it my favourite! Support act were handsome.
I shall keep it short and sweet!
A SORTAFAIRYTALEWAS A DREAMCOMETRUEFOR ME!!!!
The entire show was amazing, and im so sad, that I wont see Tori again for ages!
This was my 5th Tori concert and I have been a fan since Little Earthquakes. She was great as always of course, but I thought she was really on amazing form, especially with her powerhouse renditions of Precious Things and Strong Black Vine. Hotel was never a favourite of mine but after this live version it is. Like most of those sitting to stage left, I was distracted by the Blondie music in the background which is a shame as Taxi Ride and Etienne would have been mesmeric without that. This was the best audience I think I’ve ever been part of at a Tori gig, the atmosphere was so appreciative and buzzing with excitement. The venue was better than the Armadillo, I was halfway back in stalls and still felt she was really close. What a shame I couldn’t get right next to the stage at the end, I’m still waiting for a touch from the woman herself! Hope there’s a meet and greet next time. Come back soon, Tori, Glasgow loves you…
