WHAT'S IN-STORE FOR TIMES SQUARE?
TORI AMOS TO PERFORM AT NEW VIRGIN MEGASTORE; SATELLITE & NET BROADCASTS TO REACH FANS WORLDWIDE; EVENT KICKS OFF THREE-NIGHT SOLD-OUT STAND AT "THE THEATER"
Atlantic recording artist Tori Amos is slated to make a rare in-store appearance on May 13th (12:30 PM) at the newly opened Virgin Megastore in New York City's famed Times Square. The event coincides with Tori's three-night sold-out run at The Theater at Madison Square Garden (May 13-15). Amos's current "Dew Drop Inn" tour marks her first U.S. concert appearances since October 1994, and is her most extensive North American itinerary to date, with shows running well into the summer.
Tori's in-store performance will feature tracks from her current RIAA gold Atlantic album, "BOYS FOR PELE," which debuted at #2 on the national album chart. The Virgin performance will be broadcast simultaneously over Z-100 (100.3 FM), via satellite to Virgin Megastores on the West Coast, and in Atlantic's DigitalArena (www.atlantic-records.com).
* Tickets to a special reserved audience section will be given away to 50 fans over the air by Z-100. Winners will also have the opportunity to meet Tori following her performance.
* The video simulcast of the in-store will be broadcast live via satellite to Virgin Megastore outlets in Los Angeles and San Francisco (beginning at 9:30 AM Pacific time). Other Virgin stores in Burbank, Sacramento, and Costa Mesa will air Tori's taped performance at 8:30 PM (Pacific time).
* Coverage of the event on the World Wide Web will combine continuously updated digital photos by photojournalist Frank Micelotta with real-time RealAudio and live video, along with special updates and in-the-crowd reports from on-the-scene Atlantic correspondents.
While in New York, Tori is also scheduled for a pair of national television appearances: a return visit to Live with Regis & Kathie Lee on May 14th and Late Night with Conan O'Brien on May 15th. In addition, she will be featured in an upcoming segment of Weekend Today.
Tori has made a number of other television appearances thus far in 1996, including Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show, and MTV's 120 Minutes; she has also been featured on CNN and NBC-TV's Today. Tori has taped an edition of MTV Unplugged, which is slated to debut June 25th. In addition, the companion video for "Talula," the new single from "BOYS FOR PELE," has been added to MTV, VH1, and The Box.
Tori is currently featured in People magazine's "The 50 Most Beautiful People In The World 1996" issue.
