The following statistics from Tori's 2001 StrangeLittleTour were calculated by Sped Erstad, who maintains the Tori Amos Setlist Database, a site that keeps up with all the songs Tori plays on her tours. (Make sure to check it out if you have not already done so. It is amazing!)

These stats were calculated after Tori finished the North American leg of her 2001 tour. So they are current through the San Diego shows on November 20, 2001!

Here is a breakdown and summary of the first 39 dates of Tori's U.S. Tour (including early London date).

As I predicted before the tour started, Tori really broke out a lot of surprises in this short tour -- without a band she had the freedom to pull out a lot of songs without needing much rehearsal ahead of time (which also made for some real cute moments as she forgot a lot of words and screwed up a few times!). This was a very special tour and I hope that she can repeat it again sometime in the future... And those of you in Europe, ... wow, you have something to look forward to...
