Tori Amos Announces Classical LP and UK Tour

Tori Amos will release her new, classical-inspired album Night of Hunters this September and has announced UK tour dates for November. Her first work for classical music label Deutsche Grammophon, the release of Night of Hunters will also be supported by tours of Europe and the US. On her website, toriamos.com, Tori has described the album as;

“A 21st Century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years”. She added: “The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us.”

The European leg of her tour starts in Helsinki on September 28, with the UK dates taking place in November, starting at London’s Royal Albert Hall on November 2. See the website for full details.

Tori Amos will play:

London Royal Albert Hall (November 2)
Manchester Apollo (4)
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (6)
Belfast Waterfront (8)

Tickets go on general sale at 9am (BST) on May 13, apart from the Belfast show, for which tickets are available from 9am May 10.
