A news item posted to Billboard.com on Thursday, April 8, 2004 covers Tori's upcoming DVD/CD project Welcome To Sunny Florida. The article mainly repeats the details we already know. The only thing I read that was extra was the line that said the DVD is "augmented" by a live version of Past The Mission. Tori did perform that song during the first encore of her 2003 West Palm Beach show from which the live material from the DVD came, but it is odd that it is not listed as one of the main live tracks. Perhaps it is being used as background music for the extra features or in some other unusual way. Otherwise, all the info reported by Billboard matches what is on my Welcome To Sunny Florida Page. Thanks to marti pujolar and Peter Starski for being the first of many to alert me to this article.

Amos Live DVD Captures 'Sunny Florida'
Tori Amos will release her first live DVD next month. Due May 18 via Epic, "Welcome to Sunny Florida" was recorded Sept. 4, 2003 at the Sound Advice Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Fla. The 18-track release is augmented with an interview with Amos, behind-the-scenes footage, a tour yearbook and a live version of "Past the Mission."
"Welcome to Sunny Florida" is further enriched by a six-song CD featuring the previously unreleased tracks "Ruby through the Looking-Glass," "Seaside," "Bug a Martini," "Apollo's Frock," "Indian Summer" and "Tombigbee." The latter track is performed live on the DVD.
The show goes heavy on Amos' more recent work, including her 2002 album "Scarlet's Walk," while her back catalog is represented by such favorites as "Crucify," "Cornflake Girl" and "Leather." Amos' previous live release was "Still Orbiting," part of the 1999 two-disc set "From the Choirgirl Hotel."
The artist has no appearances on her schedule at present. Her latest release was last year's "Tales of a Librarian," which chronicled her tenure recording for Atlantic.
Here is the track list for "Welcome to Sunny Florida":
"A Sorta Fairytale"
"Bells for Her"
"Take to the Sky"
"Cloud on My Tongue"
"I Can't See New York"
