'Scarlet's Walk' continues headline tour
Mustang Daily staff report
Following a brief jaunt overseas, 'On Scarlet's Walk,' Tori Amos' critically acclaimed headlining tour in support of her Epic Records debut 'Scarlet's Walk,' has returned to U.S soil -- it kicked off Feb. 20 in Boca Raton, Fla. Featured on this leg was a three-night stint at NYC's legendary Radio City Music Hall in March (third show added after the original two quickly sold out).
Begun in November 2002, the tour features long-time collaborators Jon Evans on bass and Matt Chamberlain on drums and percussion. The duo, together with Amos at the helm, has mesmerized thousands with their intimate and emotionally wrought performances of songs new and old. Some impressions from the press that capture the mood:
"Her image accommodates glamour, sensuality and the supernatural. Her music blends art-rock sophistication, confessional singer-songwriter openness and good old pop-rock hooks." (Tampa Tribune - November 8)
'Scarlet's Walk' was released October 29, 2002. A sonic novel of sorts, the album tells the tale of Scarlet, a woman criss crossing the country in search of answers, in search of herself. Each song represents a stop along the way.
Tori's critically acclaimed discography includes the 1992 multi-platinum breakthrough album "Little Earthquakes" and 1994's "Under The Pink," as well as the platinum successes "Boys For Pele," "From The Choirgirl Hotel" and "To Venus and Back." Her most recent "reinterpretations" record, "Strange Little Girls," is certified gold. For her work she has received eight Grammy Nominations.
Tori will perform Tuesday, April 15, in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available at the Performing Arts Center box office.
