Tori Amos to Bring World Tour to Verizon Hall, 8/10
Tori Amos is set to release her brand new studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines, May 13th in the US on Mercury Classics/Universal Music Classics. In support of her new album, Amos will be kicking off her world tour in May. New US dates have just been announced including her stop in Philadelphia on Sunday, August 10 at Verizon Hall at Kimmel Center.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, March 7 at 10 a.m. and will be available at Kimmelcenter.org, the Kimmel Center Box Office or by-phone at 215-893-1999. Fans will have exclusive access to a ticket pre-sale before the general public on-sale dates by pre-ordering Unrepentant Geraldines on-line. Once a pre-order for the album is placed through http://myplaydirect.com/tori-amos , individuals will later receive a code to grant them access to pre-sales tickets for the U.S. show of their choice.
Unrepentant Geraldines is pop/rock in both content and feel and is a change in pace from Amos' most recent releases. The album is both one step further in the evolution of one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation, and a return to the inspiring and personal music that Amos is known for all around the world.
Unrepentant Geraldines is her 14th studio recording, and a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs, following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. These have included the seasonal collection Midwinter Graces, the classically influenced Night of Hunters, and Gold Dust, a collection of orchestral re-workings of songs from across her career. Released in October 2012 Gold Dust included "Flavor," which was remixed by the late DJ Peter Rauhofer and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Club Dance Chart in February 2013.
