Later on... Tori Amos @ Glastonbury '98 (U.K.)
September 23, 1998
    Toriphile Craig Astley informs me that on September 23, 1998, most if not all of Tori's set at the Glastonbury Festival from June 27, 1998 was aired on the 'UK ARENA' channel on a broadcast called "Later on... Tori Amos @ Glastonbury '98" It was part of their series of Later concerts presented and introduced by Jools Holland. (whose show Tori has frequented) They broadcast what apppeared to be the full show; it was an hour broadcast with time deducted for commercials. Here is Craig's description of the show:

    The set list was

    Precious things
    Cornflake Girl
    Raspberry Swirl (which went into PW-Got to be Big!)
    Tear In Your Hand
    The Waitress

    Unfortunately the boadcast cut short (due to an unknown reason. technical problem) during Waitress. Horses was due to be on as Jools mentioned it in the introduction as he has Tori's set list in front of him. Uniquely it was called Making mountains out of mud pies set. The channel have yet to repeat the broadcast but it likely will be as they repeated the Sheryl Crow and Neneh Cherry concerts numerous times. (N.B. a week earlier the channel broadcast "Tori Amos In Concert" but this was an edited version of the Live form NY gig)

MTV Ultra Sound: The Tori Philes
September 27, 1998
    Tori appeared on MTV Ultra Sound in the U.S. on Sunday, September 27. The show had the title "The Tori Philes" and took a look at Tori's life through the comments of "those who know her best, the Tori Philes". They interview several Toriphiles, including some I know personally (Hi Gina, Lisa, Matt & William!) Tori was also interviewed, and she made many insightful comments thoughout the program. They basically covered her life from a small child to her most recent album, "from the choirgirl hotel." The details they gave were things most Toriphiles already know, but it was still a well done and interesting program. My only complaint as usual with MTV programs is the editing. All those quick cuts and one second glances of her onstage were frustrating...I wanted to see more! This episode of MTV Ultra Sound will re-air Sunday, October 4 at 9:00 AM.

Tonight Show With Jay Leno
September 17, 1998

    On Thursday night, September 17, 1998, Tori appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She performed Jackie's Strength with her band and was the third guest, after Paul Reiser and Lucy Lawless. Tori sounded a little hoarse but the performance was excellent! In addition to singing, Tori got to talk for a few minutes with Jay, and she was really funny. She talked about how she used to live in L.A. and play weddings to help pay the rent. She even mentioned that there is a bootleg out there with her singing at a wedding, which caused some people in the crowd to applaud. She also said she tried for a part in Howard The Duck but did not get it. She also talked about actors who suddenly think they are musicians. She was really funny. Thanks to Toriphile Michael Piane, I have a closed captioned transcript of the interview. It does not match what Tori said exactly, but it gives you an idea of what happened. I also have reports from people who were at the taping.
