Tori Amos Live in Dublin


It stayed dry and she played Silent all these Years (my scream got lost in a paper cup), Crucify (you're just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird), Winter (when you gonna love you as much as I do) and Horses (but threads that are golden don't break easily) among many others.  She didn't play Cornflake Girl.  She also performed her cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit (when the light's out it's less dangerous here we are now entertain us).  How cool!

The Iveagh Gardens is a lovely venue and the crowd were of a mature and appreciative age.  Amos' live performance couldn't be faulted.  She stopped half way through the first verse of Silent all these Years to hear the crowd singing.  "So the Irish can sing!" she exclaimed with glee.  I'm only sorry I can't see her all over again tonight.  Come back soon Tori!
