      Tori took my breath away tonight. What an incredible set list! At the top of the show she mentioned how much she loves Canada and the beautiful city of Vancouver and that she got our request list and had many ‘treats’ in store for us tonight… Did she ever deliver!!! It was a night for bee sides: Sister Janet, A Case of You, Never Seen Blue, Purple People, Siren! Cruel and Star Whisperer were outstanding with the quartet. Tori was in top form tonight and it was a blessing to share the evening with so many passionate Toriphiles.

      Well. That is one full meal deal of a show!

      It seems like every Tori show I’ve attended has one song that is just stunning, crystalline perfection. Tonight that song, of all songs, was Curtain Call. Having been a Tori fan for so many years now, I need to believe and choose to believe the song is not overtly autobiographical. Ditto for “Maybe California” – which I find just plain hard to listen to (and virtually never do). I’ve never seen her make such great use of the dual piano/keyboard thing as in this performance and her voice was both forceful and fragile in turns and absolutely present right through it. And the acoustics and sound mix were really great on this too. A stunner.

      The other highlights for me were “I’m On Fire” which was equally beautiful, “A Case of You” and the instrumental section of Star Whisperer. The musicianship there is just over the top!

      I was in the balcony and had a great view of her hands… WOW is she working it on the Hunters songs.

      The Quartet is amazing. Those guys are total rock stars. There is such a physicality to their performance and they are breathtakingly good players.

      In terms of what they brought to the show – they were a little too loud in some places for me (for example the “Teams of Horses” section of Fearlessness), and in some places it was a bit of an odd pairing that didn’t totally work in my opinion (Big Wheel, Siren, Spark). I think some of the songs could breathe more if slowed down a little (almost every song with quartet is played faster than it’s normal tempo, it seemed). But where it works, it’s divine, and brings the show to a whole new level. Cruel is one example… that’s twisted and dark magic there… quite amazing. Star Whisperer of course. Carry. I’ve read here on Undented and can now say I agree 100% that “Leather” is really good with the quartet (without the quartet it bores me a little). I should also issue the disclaimer that I find Jon and Matt are too loud a lot of the time too. Maybe an old fogey thing. Oh – and I loved A Multitude of Shades. What a great thing for these young guys to have this opportunity, they are certainly worthy of it. And it occurs to me how gracious of her it is to share the stage like this, even leaving to give them an entire solo piece. I’d love to read all about their experiences of touring together and what has come out of this partnership.

      The bottom line is that it was a great show, very vibrant, very rich. Tori was totally present and in her element and I love the Quartet. Seattle tomorrow night will close out this tour for me.

      AHHHHHHH… The Afterglow of my first NoH evening. Tonight’s setlist basically rocked. You can see that from above…. Firstly, let me say that the theater is so beautiful and it looks like a cathedral, and Tori and the Quartette made it into a true Sonic Cathedral.

      Tori was wearing a light peach and off-white frock without any bling, the the peach material draped so beautifully and turned colors with the lighting (which was superb). I did get a close up of her beautiful 7 inch heel (no, I didn’t measure them…but they looked taller than 6 inchers). Hopefully Violet will post the pic of the shoes.

      We ran into a guy on the street as we were walking in who informed us that there was no meet and greet (which we did not know at the time) and he said that on behalf of himself and some friends they requested Spark, Purple People, A Case of You, Sister Janet, Never Seen Blue and Northern Lad…and they got ‘em all except one. But I must say that Baker, Baker was one of my highlights…it was just so beautiful with the strings. What intelligent requests. We looked for them after the show and didn’t see them, but they must have been ecstatic.

      I have never heard Tori sing so well or play the piano so intensely and tonight was my 61st show. I’ve been into her since LE and see her anywhere from 4 to 8 times a tour. Having 3 nights off probably helped, too…so it will be interesting to compare and contrast tomorrow evening in Seattle (my hometown) and then 2 nights in a row in LA. Another thing that helped (IMO) is that she only has Bosse and one other keyboard. For the Sin tour in ’09, didn’t she have 5? And didn’t she play them all at once? I’m not saying that doesn’t take mad skill, but I feel that just focusing on the piano helped her playing so much. It was dynamic and she bent her head to the work…and it looked just like a regular concert pianist (not that Tori isn’t one). I also LOVED it when she threw sheet music on the floor when she was done with it! That made us giggle.

      This (classical) format is just astonishing…the strings were played with such heart, gusto and quirkiness~~when called for~~ it brings Tori’s playing to a new level. Star Whisperer was simply astonishing. My personal fav of the night… and I know I will get to hear it 3 more times! (I don’t mean to brag….but I’m just SO excited!)

      The five songs following SW was just one amazement after the next… I mean, how many times do you get to hear A Case Of You, Never Seen Blue, Purple People, Baker Baker and the most light hearted version of Father Lucifer EVER in a row! After the magic of Star Whisperer, the concert could have ended there and I would have been satisfied.

      BUT! SQUEEEEEEE! She goes into Fearlessness, which is my second favorite song on both NoH and Sin Parabras (btw… if you have not yet downloaded Sin Parabras yet, quit reading, download it, and come right back…. it is beyond STUNNING…and for the first time I really got how Tori used the bassoons to indicate when Annabelle was in her goose form. It basically sounds like a lovely goose call.)

      OK… Glad you are back from downloading Sin Parabras so you can read the rest of this review with it playing in the background.

      The concert hall is gorgeous, the staff so friendly and accommodating and the only misfire of the evening was when someone threw a woolen mitten at the back of my head to try to get my attention about something. Unfortunately, right at that moment, I had turned my head and that mitten grazed my cornea. I think I won’t need to have a cornea transplant, but he quickly blanched when, after the show he came up to me and asked me for his mitten back and I told him that I was going to be kind enough to not press assault charges against him because I was in a good mood. I guess he was mad because I had to use my flash…but lots of people were taking pictures…and I am sharing as many as I can here on Undented and I want people to feel free to download them…they are for everyone! My seat-mate was also taking photographs and I have them on my computer, so there is a double set to share here at Violet’s discretion but HE didn’t get assaulted with an ugly woolen mitten.

      WHATEVER!!!!! At least I don’t talk, clap or scream in the middle of songs (why do they do that on Star Whisperer? That’s another head-scratcher).

      I will be back here sharing my thoughts on the rest of the shows I see, but I can’t help feeling that this one, tonight in Vancouver will be my standout. During the ADP tour Vancouver got shorted an encore because we were having a once-in-100-year-rainstorm and they had to go because a 30-mile stretch south of Portland got washed out and they had to go something like 300 miles out of their way each way (they did Vancouver, Portland, Seattle…in that order in 2007). THIS is my theory on why we got such a spectacular setlist! YAY for 100 year rain storms if 4 years later we get a show like tonight. If you can make it to ANY of the shows…DO because we were in the third row and there were empty seats all around us. Why is that? She’s playing such a limited amount of cities and I would think everyone who loves her would make the effort to see Tori in this once-in-a-lifetime concert experience…..

      It’s worth it. ~~ML

      I’ve seen Tori twice before (Toronto 2003 and Melbourne 2005), and I was SO excited to go to this show. I bought my ticket when they were released in July and had been looking forward to it since then. This show was definitely not a disappointment – probably the best show that I have seen, period. Tori looked and sounded amazing, and the quartet were fantastic. Songs from the new album were incredible, and I loved how she pulled out Sister Janet!!! The highlight for me was definitely Spring Haze, it’s one of my favourite songs and brought me to tears. Amazing night. As I left I still couldn’t believe that I saw such a great Tori show just around the corner from my house!!!

    5. Jackie says:

      Awesome show! Seen her 5 times and this was one of the best. Great energy, and a fabulous mix of classics and new songs. She really seemed to love playing with the quartet and it was an awesome change from past shows. My only wish was that she was more chatty and told a story like she often does, but no complaining here really :)

      Number of Tori concerts attended: 29.
      Ranking of this show: within the top 3.

      Vancouver. Was. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

      This setlist is insane. There were only three songs played that I’m not crazy about, and the rest are personal favorites AND she killed them. And this quartet. Oh My God. You can come back anytime!

      The crowd’s energy level was incredible. Tori picked up on it, and threw it right back. It’s been 9 years since I’ve seen a Tori show like this, where the crowd was respectful yet totally plugged in.

      Huge love to the wonderful people at the (didn’t occur) meet and greet today! I really enjoyed talking with you: Dave, Maria, Corby, Sarah, Joseph, and the wonderful folks who flew in from the Yukon—I’m sorry I didn’t learn your names. Thanks as always to Alice, Jim, Lynn, Heather and Bridget for making the day even more fun. I’m so, SO glad we all got to experience this!

      I don’t know how you’ll top this, Tori, but I’ll see you tonight! Thanks for coming to Seattle!

    7. C says:

      Thoroughly great show — the best of the Tori shows I’ve seen, for sure. “Cruel” and “A Case of You” were definite highlights.

    8. Angela F. says:

      Really amazing show – the quartet was incredibly tight, and Tori was in perfect form. We don’t get to see her very often in Vancouver, and this show was worth the long wait since her ADP tour. At times I felt like I was in a dream, just surfacing enough to experience that sensation of knowing you can settle back in and pick up where you left off. Tori playing ‘A Case of You’ was the high point – such strong emotional meaning for me.

      My only nagging critique was that the strings seemed a bit over-wrought at some points in the arrangements of pieces that wouldn’t normally have them. That certainly didn’t spoil the evening, tho!

    9. craigh says:

      Absolutely pitch-perfect show. My brain-mantra of ‘Garlands Garlands Garlands’ might be responsible for its appearance at the next show, though! ;)

      Really, couldn’t have asked for a better night. From the sparse Way Down, to epic centrepiece Star Whisperer all the way through to a soaring Spring Haze (that Tori growl is resurfacing… this tour seems to have lit a new fire in her, not to take away from any other recent tour. Just a noticeable development) Night of Hunters is a stellar show to witness.
