5 ½ Weeks Tour 1999



Alanis Morissette & Tori Amos co-headlining tour

Tori Amos was asked by Alanis Morissette to join her on a 28-date co-headlining tour of North America. Tori always performed first, since the piano could not be moved after being tuned. When the "5 ½ Weeks Tour" ended, Tori and her band embarked on the brief "To Dallas and Back" tour, then Tori wrapped up the year with a few solo shows.
