Tori, Tori, Tori.
I can’t tell you much about the support act because I slept through most of it. You get me sitting in a dark room for and for the first 30 mins I will sleep. I do it quite often. I don’t think I missed much.
Tori was damm! I am so glad I got a ticket. I especially loved it when it was just her and the pianos and yes she occasionally played two at the same time whilst singing. I love the band but when it is pared back to just her and the piano(s) I just grin.
Whilst I absolutely loved hearing the old classics which just put a grin on my face like Cornflake Girl or Cooling or Hey Jupiter and it was great to hear the new stuff live, I was blown to shreds along with I would say everyone else in the audience with an improv song she did called Homo Spirituality. That song was just so touching.
For the set list as well as some pretty dedicated Tori fans feelings on the show, head over to undented.
I am by no means a huge Tori fan, I don’t know all those obscure songs, I don’t know the words/meanings of the songs but there is something about the way she plays piano and sings that just haunts you in a good way right to the bones.
It was all topped off by ABC2 playing a Tori Amos concert from 1997 in New York the following morning. I taped that 😀
