Back from the gig. It was brilliant :mrg:

The only down is that she seemed to be in a hurry, playing all the songs right after one another, without any break, we hardly had the time to applause :lol:
Maybe she had a train or plane to catch :lol:
So this was the only weakness: not enough "breaks" and "breathing"... and she didn't chitchat much...

But apart from that, it was really great to see her alone on stage again :D

She played a lot of Little Earthquakes, so I got a bit nostalgic at times, being in a small venue, with only her and her pianos... except that she had to wear glasses for one cover (Leonard Cohen's Suzanne) which was really funny because she made fun of herself, making a small improv with "bachelorette being in Paris... drinking champagne... and getting old" :lol:

The big highlights for me were:
GOLD DUST (first time I see it live and it's my favourite) :D
Siren
Twinkle (with a lovely improv) very touching
as well as Marianne (I adore this song)
Space Dog (I love it live, with great pianos moments)
Girl (because she doesn't play it much normally)
Precious Things (as per always)
and she finished the show with Personal Jesus, excellent cover with amazing piano playing 8)

That was I recall so far... I'm still under the spell and hope to find a bootled of the show because the setlist was really good :D

She said she loved Paris for its love and passion, but also to play in such a famous venue (L'Olympia) where great artists like Jeff Buckley played... and that you could feel the spirits
and later she said she wanted to cover Hallelujah but she sucked at it :lol:

Anyway, it was a wonderful night and I don't regreat the 10 hours (return included) of car, train and subway to make it!!

I was just thinking if Aurelia went to the show actually.
Glad you liked it. I haven't seen Tori solo for eons.
I heard she did Desperado in London.
Hopefully she'll tour in a quartet next year...

It is still amazing, and like I said, it brought me back good memories of the early 90's when she was performing solo in her debut... :D

Your gig report gave me shivers OhRay and I am SO happy that you got to see Gold Dust live...OMG!! xss35

I had a little accident last week (fell down my stairs at 3.30am ..totally sober as well!!) and I'm a bit bashed up and bruised so was feeling in need of some soothing at the weekend. I spent a heavenly afternoon listening to Little Earthquakes, Boys For Pele and Scarlet's Walk back to back lying on the sofa on my own. It was like a kind of meditation and I felt so energised afterwards.

I hope I get to see her live again soon..she is inspirational. :mrg:

Aw, poor Helen... Feel better soon!! :smt056
I must say that im very happy and quite "proud" to read how much you enjoy Tori's presence and influence! :D It's quite a big deal to me to hear about that...

I forgot to say she played Snowcherries from France and it was lovely :D

Totally!

The guy made some really nice vids that I'm planning to save into mp4 for my iPod :mrg:

The fact you can see her in such close up shows how much into the songs she can be, totally inhabited by them, reliving them as if it was the first time she was telling the story... for that matter I found Marianne particularly touching given the story behind it (the loss of a friend when she was young and who commits suicide I think), as well as Twinkle with the wee improv that enhances the dedication to the people who passed away, etc.

What a wonderful and intense night it was :D

I've received my DVD today :D :D :D

The box is lovely with great pictures and a handwritten message by Tori.

It's a really nice and class piece of DVD :D

I've just had a quick look at the playlist and I'm a little bit disappointed with the selection (I don't think they/she's chosen her most powerful songs but maybe within the context of the venue it's going to make sense!)

I'll try and watch it tonight me thinks :mrg:

Well, I've only watched half of it because I haven't been much at home lately.

The shooting is great and she looks wonderful (so much for the people bitching about her and facelifting :p )

Interview is nice (but the interviewer is really bad in my opinion with plenty of awkward "'errrrrm... errmmmmmmm" that's quite a shame because it doesn't give any rythme to the conversation).
Tori provides as per always great / weird answers :lol:

Ruby Through the Looking Glass is my favourite so far, an amazing and vibrating interpretation 8)
China really is boring. Once again, I do not approve the playlist :lol:

Wednesday I love the song I'm glad I have it, just like Lust.

I still have to watch:
8. Ophelia
9. Girl
10. Bells for Her
11. Toast
12. Maybe California

So, to sum it up, so far I find it alright but could have been way way way much MORE pleasant with different choice of songs.
