Tour Speculation Thread

Post by star whisperer on Sun Sep 11, 2011 5:59 pm

i thought itd be cool to have a thread where we can all speculate about the upcoming tour...its starts in less than 3 weeks!!!

so things to speculate:
- format (i.e. solo sections etc)
- outfits
- possible setlists maybe?

also possibility of discussing staples? i like the idea of seven sisters as an opener, tori coming on first, then the quartet coming on for the second song.

also im curious if any of the tash songs will be played live, id be loving it if T just sung it all herself live.

Not sure about the Tash or Kelsey songs. Some of them would be difficult to do with only one singer (in the same way that Winter's Carol would be). I think Cactus Practice would be particularly tough.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Shattering Sea and Carry end up being standard openers and closers just because the album has such a sense of direction from one to the other. Other ones I can see turning up a lot are Fearlessness (yes please!), Your Ghost, Nautical Twilight.

Oh Wow. From undented's conversation with a member of the quartet:



"Meanwhile, we are also writing a string quartet piece especially for the tour, which will be inspired by Tori´s music. It’s called “A Multitude Of Shades.” This is the second piece written by all four of us, and will be officially published by prestigious the classical publisher Doblinger Verlag in Vienna."

I'm wondering if that piece they're preparing would be played before/after the intermission (if there is one!)

Didn't she say, or imply, in that first interview for Out magazine that pne of the reasons she won't be playing the entire album each night is that Tash and Kelsey won't be on tour with her? So I suppose we won't get Tori only versions....as Orfeo said, Cactus Practice wouldn't really work with one singer. Same with The Chase, not sure if she could work something out with Night Of Hunters... But it would be interesting to see her Job's Coffin!

she better try the title track! or else!!!

and i worry if she cuts all those out she'll only be lift with 7 or so songs... and she said in an interview battle of trees will be too hard to translate live so it may not come out for a while (if at all!)

Yeah well, she's already had some concerts on previous tours where the current album barely gets a look-in.

Given she's already got so many existing albums to choose from, it wouldn't really surprise me if a sizeable chunk of NoH doesn't appear, or appears rarely.

Besides, fans tend to sit there with a checklist saying 'aw, she didn't play anything from [insert album title of choice]', and will then supply meet and greet requests accordingly. There are only so many slots per concert to go around. These days, if NoH gets 3 or 4 songs in a show it would still qualify as the featured album.

I think NOH would get quite a few songs played - at least early on with the tour - as these would be the first songs she would have rehearsed with the string quartet. But as the tour progresses and they get time to rehearse other songs then yeah, you might get shows with nothing but the staples from the new album (if there are any)!

I'm wondering if the solo songs and the quartet songs will be all mixed throughout the show or if there will be defined solo time... do we have any news about that?

I wonder how many solo songs there will be? If it will be quartlet/solo/quartlet.

I can see Shattering Sea being an opener.

Anyone got any guesses on staples from other albums? Smile

I would think that Night of Hunters would make up a substantial (as much as it can, anyway) part of the set, seeing as it's especially arranged from scratch with the quartet. Plus those songs she mentioned in the Out interview about being necessary to tell the story.

I could possibly see the sets being a lot more narrative driven or sequential than she has previously. More of an obvious "story" going on, since that is the nature of the album. I would speculate that it would be structure quartet/solo section/quartet again...

Today I thought in the car that Cooling would sound beautiful with strings. I bet she does Jackie's Strength, Marianne, Girl Disappearing, etc, seeing as they are already arranged and she did mention that in the Out interview as well. I would LOVE to hear some from The Beekeeper. Martha's Foolish Ginger, please!

yeas!! MFG for the win please...

i was thinking today whiledriving to work, i reckon this tour will be more demure than say lastyear,

even though last year was solo, it was pretty rocking (personal jesus, space dog, etc).

whereas i reckon this will be much more subdued....

If NOH is the newest album, why wouldn't it take upmost of the concert,with fill ins from other albums.



NOH is such a powerful body of music( I'm not a follower of Tori, butmy friendship with UpOn The 101,has given me reason to listen to NOH) that in my opinion it would be a shame for her not to include as many songs as possible .....definitely "Seven Sisters"
