Tori Amos returns to South Africa in June

Tori Amos
Following her highly successful five concert sell-out SA tour in 2011, singer-songwriter, pianist and composer, Tori Amos returns to South Africa at the end of June 2014 for four performances only as part of her world tour in support of her latest album, Unrepentant Geraldines. Tori Amos begins her SA Tour at the Teatro at Montecasino on Thursday, 26 June and Friday, 27 June followed by two concerts at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Sunday, 29 June and Monday, 30 June. Unrepentant Geraldines is a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs of exquisite beauty 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. Last year Tori Amos also launched her most ambitious project to date as a composer, along with book writer Samuel Adamson, when their musical The Light Princess premiered at London's National Theatre for the start of an initial run until the end of last month, with a possible extension. At the prestigious UK Evening Standard Drama Awards earlier this year, The Light Princess was nominated for Best Musical and leading lady Rosalie Craig won the Best Musical Performance category.
