Tori Amos interview and live performance

Announcer: Tori Amos, recorded live in Atlanta at the Purple Dragon Recording Studios. Live X is brought to you by Sound Warehouse. Now here's Tori Amos.

[applause]

Tori: Wow. This reminds me of my living room. You know? It's like, you have a pot-luck meal and everybody makes something yummy and then you know they'd be going, "I hope you can play something."

[audience laughter]

Tori: I haven't played some of these songs for like, a year and a half. So if I mess up, you can tell me the words, ok?

Tori performs Crucify.

[applause]

Tori: Ok. Wow, I'm gonna cry. I haven't played that in so long. I wish I could take you all with me. What are you doing for the next six months? Take everyone on the tour bus. Ok, this is from the new album. I wrote this about someone I shouldn't have.

[audience laughter]

Tori: I almost got into some very big trouble... I'm just gonna play it.

Tori performs Cloud On My Tongue.

Tori: This is a song my father doesn't speak about much, right now...

[applause]

Tori: After um, after Me and a Gun, these past couple of years have been a bit hard because um, there are some things I didn't want to look at and this song has helped me.

Tori performs Baker Baker.

[applause]

Tori: I promised I'd do one, I promised I'd do one for the front row. I'm sorry this is another ballad, I'm sorry. But I can't do my rat thing here.

Tori plays a few bars of God.

[audience laughter]

Tori: Sorry, ok, anyway. I know, I know, I know, it's a sad mood. Sorry.
