Live concert recordings archive. Most were recorded from the audience, some were broadcast on radio. Many sound amazing, a few sound awful. But even the worst recordings are amazing, as Tori is always brilliant and every show is unique.

Although this is a historical archive of the concerts of Tori Amos, there are no officially released shows here. If you enjoy the shows here, you will definitely want to head over to Amazon to purchase all of the shows Tori has released herself (which obviously sound a million times better than anything in this archive), particularly the phenomenal Legs and Boots series from 2007 (27 complete concerts mastered by the Martian himself!), the 6-concert Original Bootlegs set from 2005, From Russia with Love from 2010 (exclusively available on toriamos.com) plus the DVDs Live in Montreux 1991/1992, Welcome to Sunny Florida and Live from the Artists Den. Support Tori by seeing her amazing concerts in person and let her know that you will buy any live recording she releases!




In 1991, Tori Amos began performing intimate solo shows in small UK venues to promote her debut solo album, Little Earthquakes. Later in the year she opened for Marc Cohn on his tour. In January 1992, Tori was headlining her own Little Earthquakes World Tour, which continued until the end of November. She opened a few shows with an unreleased a capella song (lyrics here) exclusive to this tour.

In 1994, Tori Amos embarked upon her second world tour, promoting her second solo album, Under the Pink. She toured with a beautiful Bosendorfer piano for the first time, and also had a prepared upright piano that she played (standing) for one song, "Bells for Her." The opening act was Native American folk singer Bill Miller, and Tori's introductory music (what played when the lights went down and she walked onstage) was the theme from "Rawhide." Funtimes.

In 1996, Tori Amos embarked on the Dew Drop Inn tour (this time bringing along a harpsichord, harmonium, and Steve Caton on guitar) to promote her third album, Boys for Pele. [Go here to read about the original Dew Drop Inn]. She was coming out of an almost 8 year relationship with the man she had thought was her soul-mate (Eric Rosse). She was learning to find true passion within herself rather than feeding off the energy of the men in her life, and even the piano itself. This time Tori Amos was performing for the healing of her soul, for her own mental health and spiritual evolution. She let her voice go wild, belting out the most dramatic and intense performances of her career -- hisses, moans, wails, wild improvisations and raw screams. This was a Tori Amos unlike anything you'd ever heard on record or in concert before, and it's something you'd never hear again after this tour. Tori has even admitted that she is somewhat embarrassed by these intense, wild performances. But her fans (or "Ears with Feet," as she says here, in a message to the web recorded on Sept 16, 1996) loved every moment of it, and dream of Tori returning to this kind of raw performance art. Enjoy these rare bootlegs... Maybe someday Tori herself will release official recordings from this classic and unforgettable tour. (* next to the best shows).

Tori Amos toured with a band for the first time in 1998 (promoting her album, From the Choirgirl Hotel), and it was the first time I saw people literally pass out from being so overwhelmed at a Tori show! Yes, the music was that intense and powerful. So, I think you'll enjoy this collection of recordings from the tour. I really like hearing how the songs evolve as the tour progresses, and I put a * next to my favorite shows.

Perhaps one of the best Tori Amos concert tours was in 1999 to promote the To Venus and Back album. Accompanied by Jon Evans (on bass), Matt Chamberlain (on drums) and Steve Caton (on guitar, for the last time), Tori Amos played some of her most dramatic rock shows ever. The tour began with Tori and her band co-headlining 27 shows with Alanis Morissette. Since there were two main acts performing, Tori's set ended after about an hour and 10 minutes. After the double-headlining tour, Tori and her band went on and performed 8 full-length shows (about two hours). To finish the year off, Tori played a few solo mini-concerts, beginning with a memorable full-length show in London. There are great recordings of 99% of this stuff, so enjoy!

The 2001 Strange Little Tour (in support of her album of covers, Strange Little Girls) was Tori Amos' first solo tour after becoming a mother. She was full of energy and performed on a new level, with a unique set-list every night. Good stuff, indeed. Stealthy fans managed to record almost every show.

In 2002, Tori Amos released what she has said is "the cornerstone" of her work -- Scarlet's Walk. In October 2002, she performed a series of solo mini-concerts for radio and TV (and a few private shows for record industry people). She even had a new custom mini-Bösendorfer piano built just for this sort of thing. After the solo album promotion, Tori was joined by Jon Evans on bass and Matt Chamberlain on drums for one of her most epic tours ever: On Scarlet's Walk. The shows were about 30 minutes longer than her previous concerts, with lots of variety from night to night, and new arrangements for many of the older songs. After the tour, Tori took a short break, then returned for the Lottapianos tour in the Summer of 2003. If you have any shows missing from this archive, please share and I will update the list.

If you are not familiar with Scarlet's Walk, listen to Scarlet Stories - Commentary by Tori Amos, and get the full story of the album from Tori herself. Good stuff.

In 2005, Tori Amos toured solo (this time seated between the piano and a B3 Hammond organ) to promote her album, The Beekeeper. Each night, Tori opened the show with the song "Original Sinsuality," which was the name of the tour's first leg (U.S., Australia and Europe). After touring Europe, Tori took a short break, then returned to the U.S. for the "Summer of Sin" tour. She also took requests (online and at meet and greets) for covers (other people's songs) in each city for a two-song section of the show called "Tori's Piano Bar," so audiences heard Tori perform songs she had never played before, and many she would never play again.

Tori Amos officially released 6 complete concerts from this tour, available individually or in a box set called The Original Bootlegs. The recordings sound incredible, and are much more enjoyable than listening to audience recordings. You can purchase The Original Bootlegs on Amazon.com. However, for those scholars and collectors who are interested in hearing more live Tori Amos performances, we have this collection of audience recordings (and one radio broadcast).

In 2007, Tori Amos toured to support American Doll Posse. For the album, Tori created four personas, each based on a different archetypal image of woman. She named them "Clyde," "Isabel," "Santa" and "Pip". And of course there was a fifth character from the beginning, named "Tori". This brought the concept of "Tori" as separate persona full-circle back to 1988's Y Kant Tori Read, her first commercial album. For these new live shows, she performed the first 30 minutes dressed in full costume (including wigs) as one of the four "dolls," then left the stage for a costume change and returned to play as "Tori" for the remaining 90 minutes (approximately). She was joined onstage by Matt Chamberlain on drums, Jon Evans on bass, and Dan Phelps on guitars.

Tori Amos released 28 complete recordings from this tour, calling the collection "Legs and Boots" (now available on Amazon.com). Fans were thrilled to hear professional recordings of so many complete shows from one tour, and most were available to download through Tori's official website within a day or two after the actual concert (mastered by Mark Hawley, up all night). However, this wasn't even half the tour, so here are some audience recordings (and 2 soundboard broadcasts) of shows not included in that set.

In 2009, Tori Amos toured in support of her album Abnormally Attracted to Sin, this time with Jon Evans playing bass and guitar, Matt Chamberlain on drums, and Tori herself playing the piano and three other keyboards. Tori performed "Icicle" and "China" with the band for the first time on this tour, and the sound overall was just amazing. My favorites are marked with *.
