Tori Amos - Boston, MA - 08/24/2003

I went to see Tori Amos on Sunday with Nick, Timmy, and Renee on Sunday. The show was at the Fleet Boston Pavilion. It was a perfect night to be heading to the tent on the water, just gorgeous, no humidity, 60s, excellent.

We missed much of Ben Folds. Saw his last 2 or 3 songs. Sounded pretty good, but I am not really in to his stuff (more that I don't own it than not liking him). We got some drinks and food and headed to the seats. We had amazing seats, 5th row, stage left. Tori came on around 8:40. She played straight through until just about 11, with just 2 short breaks before the encores. Amazingly long set.

The show itself was ok for me. I thought Tori sounded great, but my big complaint was song selection. She played a lot of b-sides and things. Though I feel I know Tori's stuff VERY well, I got lost at many points during the show. It was very strange. She seemed very calm and just like she was having fun. She didn't get as intense as I have seen her in the past, jumping around on her piano stool and whatnot.

Good show overall, wish the song selection was different.
