During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori is not presently on tour.
Hot on the heels of two more songs from The Light Princess, the nominations for the 14th annual WhatsOnStage Awards were announced today in an afternoon party at the Café de Paris in London and the musical find itself nominated in six categories of the only awards decided entirely be the theatre-going public:
The full shortlist can be found on WhatsOnStage.com.
Voting opens today at 2:00 PM GMT and continues through to Midnight on January 31, 2014. Anyone can vote, though you can only vote once.
The winners will be announced during a ceremony at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London’s West End on Sunday, February 23, 2014.
Congratulations to all for the nominations and best of luck to you all!
The National Theatre has posted two more songs from The Light Princess, “My Fairy Story” and “Amphibiava,” on Soundcloud. We can’t think of a better way to kick off the end of the week! (Well, there probably are some ways but this is certainly up there…)
Check ‘em out below:
The Unrepentant Geraldines tour listing on ToriAmos.com has been updated and there are new details about the Prague show on June 11th. The venue is now the Congress Center (the same location as the concert in Prague during 2009’s Sinful Attraction tour) with tickets going on sale on Wednesday, December 11th.
Soon as we have a ticket link, we’ll get it posted!
The week of tickets sales for the Unrepentant Geraldines tour comes to an end with general sales for the Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, London (tickets for the four English shows via GigsandTours.com or Ticketmaster) and Copenhagen shows starting this morning.
Not long afterward, a second Dublin show was added with tickets available from Ticketmaster as well.
That leaves two shows on the European leg for which tickets have not yet gone on sale: Oslo and Prague. Oslo tickets go on sale on Saturday at 9:00 AM local time via billetservice.no. However, we do not have any ticket information for Prague yet. If anyone does or hears anything, please let us know so we can help spread the word.
The following ticket sales for shows on the Unrepentant Geraldines tour are taking place on Thursday, November 28th:
Currently, the only two UK shows with Live Nation pre-sales are Birmingham and London. It’s odd that Manchester and Nottingham are not listed. They could be added later; we don’t know. Amsterdam has a pre-sale on Thursday as well. To the best of our knowledge, there are no pre-sale passwords required but we shall have to see in the morning.
The Ticketmatic link for Brussels comes from ToriAmos.com. Currently, nothing comes up for that link but we’d expect it to change. ToriAmos.com lists the sale time for that show as 10:30 local time. However, that show is also on LiveNation.be (Dutch) with a sale time of 9:00 AM CET. We suggest erring on the side of caution and being ready at 9:00.
According to the Auditorium Parco della Musica’s website, tickets for the Rome show will also be available through Listicket. The sale time listed there is 11:00 AM CET so we are guessing that is a separate allotment of tickets from those being sold by Live Nation, starting a hour earlier. Again, it’ll be worth checking both.
Finally, as tomorrow is a holiday here in the United States, we may not be on top of any changes or updates during the day tomorrow. If we are able, we’ll post anything significant on Twitter but will update the site to as well can. Best advice is to help each other out as best as possible…good luck!
Lest we forget amongst all the tour and ticket hub-bub, The Light Princess is still going on!
After a wee break, performances resume this weekend and tickets are still available for the shows on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and Monday evening.
And if you are wondering what all the fuss is about — or have been wondering since the beginning what the heck a musical written by Tori Amos might sound like — you can now listen to two songs courtesy of The National Theatre! They are Althea and Better Than Good. Check ‘em out on SoundCloud or in the widget below…
Hopefully this bodes well for the possibility of a recording being made available soon!
Eight shows on the Unrepentant Geraldines tour go on sale on Wednesday, November 27th at the times listed below in the local time zone.
Update: Copenhagen pre-sale is underway at Billetlugen!
There are no passwords required for the UK Tori pre-sale today.
Update: Looks like there will be a LiveNation pre-sale for at least the Birmingham and London shows on Thursday, November 28th at 10:00 AM GMT. Don’t know if there will be a password needed for that one or not yet.
As always, good luck!
While we spent the day speculating about tour dates, ToriAmos.com was busy getting ready to announce the release of Tori’s next album, titled Unrepentant Geraldines, and the European dates on her upcoming 2014 tour:
Tori has announced the release of her brand new album, Unrepentant Geraldines, in spring 2014.
This will be Tori’s 14th studio album which will be supported by an extensive world tour starting May 7th, 2014 in Dublin and heading across Europe including shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall and dates in Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Moscow, Warsaw and other major cities. Dates in the US and the rest of the world will follow later in 2014 and will be confirmed soon.
Note that most of the shows go on sale this week! We’ll be getting the Tour section updated as quickly as our fingers will allow with ticket links, etc.!
Update: Jump the cut for the full press release announcing the album and tour!
Nearly a year ago, in an online interview for El Mundo, Tori indicated that, after focusing on The Light Princess in 2013 and releasing a new record, she would probably tour again in 2014. During meet and greets prior to some of The Light Princess performances, she echoed the same plans, talking about a new record and a tour in 2014 as well.
Of course, nothing has been officially announced this early but, as often happens, some possible dates and locations have surfaced via other means…
First, Rome’s Auditorium Parco della Musica sent out a press release about their upcoming 2013-2014 musical season which included Tori in list of performers. No date was given and nothing has been added to their event calendar yet but, as @GianniSpigno reported on Twitter, the newspaper Corriere said that Tori would be performing at the Auditorium on June 2nd as part of their on-going La Voce series.
Second, Vlad tipped us off to this listing which has Tori performing at the Music Hall in St. Petersburg, Russia on June 14th. Unsurprisingly, nothing is mentioned on the venue’s website nor are there any additional clues to be found on the website of the Polygon Agency which the QRickets listing implies is involved with the show. We’re also hearing about two other shows in and around Moscow but don’t have any details yet. Update: RedKassa.ru is listing a show at Crocus City Hall in Moscow on June 15th.
Update: Nicotine Love also found this event on vk.com which it indicates the show will go on sale on November 25th.
Update: DocSnyder also points out a “ghost” listing in Eventim’s iOS app which has a listing for dates from May 19th through June 10th. The listing, which is cryptically titled “Tori Amos: The Unrepenta…” (it doesn’t fit), has no further information but the Eventim website calls it The Unrepentant Geraldines Tour as does the German concert site Kartine.de. No dates are listed though.
Update: DocSnyder spied five German dates on BonnTicket: May 19th in Frankfurt, May 20th in Berlin, May 29th in Hamburg, June 9th in Stuttgart, and June 10th in Munich. Note that BonnTicket indicates that tickets for all but Stuttgart will be available at 9:00 AM Monday, November 25th. We’re not sure if BonnTicket is a reseller or an outlet so we’ll have to see how that plays out.
As always, we emphasize that these dates are, as of yet, unconfirmed and may or may not happen. But they do fit in the timeline of what little we know about what 2014 has in store for us so we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if they come to pass…
After a few days off, The Light Princess returns to the Lyttelton Theatre’s stage this weekend with shows Friday evening through Tuesday evening, including weekend matinees and an audio-described performance on Saturday afternoon for those on the National Theatre’s Access List. Tickets are still available for all performances. After Tuesday, there are no performances until the end of November so this will be a good chance to catch the show this month!
Kicking off this weekend’s stint, actress Rosalie Craig will be doing a Twitter Q&A on the National Theatre’s Twitter account at 3:00 PM GMT. If you have a burning question for the Crown Princess of Lagobel, tomorrow will be your chance to ask her about it!
Additionally, it appears the musical’s run has been extended into February as the National’s overview indicates that the final performance is on February 2, 2014. The ticketing system does not list any performances beyond January 9th yet but it does have a tab for February so we expect these additional dates to be appear soon.
Update: The additional performances in January and February have been added and will go on sale on Monday, November 11th at 11:00 AM GMT. The dates added include performances from January 17th to 22nd and January 28th to February 2nd.
Finally, nominations for the 2014 WhatsOnStage Awards are now live. These awards are interesting as they are the only theatre awards decided entirely by the public. Throughout the month of November, anybody can nominate anyone or any show in any category. The shortlist for each award, based on all the nominations, will be announced on December 6th followed by voting through the end of January and the final awards ceremony on February 23rd.
If you’d like to participate in the process, swing by the Awards’ website and voice your thoughts in the nomination process.
