Tori Amos brings her Gold Dust Orchestral Tour to the Royal Albert Hall for October 2012
The American singer songwriter will accompany the release of her latest album with a full orchestral concert, tickets on sale Friday 22nd June
Some artists tour and are reluctant to play 'all the hits', so sick are they of sleepwalking through them for the last 20 years. Others shamelessly plug a 'greatest hits' tour, joyously unfettered by troublesome new material. Some performers manage to navigate the narrow, thrilling course between the two. You'd expect nothing less of Tori Amos.
From winning a songwriting competition in Baltimore aged 14, to scooping eight Grammy nominations (including five for Best Alternative Music Album), Tori Amos has always been a grafter. She topped the UK charts in 1996 with the Armand van Helden remix of her song Professional Widow. A contrast to her regular output, Professional Widow failed to be the launchpad to even greater things that many expected it to be. Not that it slowed Tori Amos down - she has released seven studio albums in the last decade or so.
Her 13th album, Gold Dust, is set for release in October. The record features retellings of existing songs taken from across her extensive (and impressive) back catalogue; all recorded in the studio with the Metropole Orkest. The tour represents a rare opportunity to hear a highly regarded artist's most compelling works in an orchestral setting, all in the auspicious and beguiling surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall.
Between dates in Belgium and Poland, Tori Amos drops in to London on Wednesday 3rd October 2012. We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 22nd June priced from £50.
