Here it is.
In less than 24 hours, Tori will perform with the Metropole Orchestra in Amsterdam what is believed to be her most anticipated and exciting live concert as of late.
So many of you will be there and we would like to wish you all a great gig, which will hopefully match or exceed your wild anticipations.

For those who can't make it, here's your freakout topic. We also would like to wish you a great time here.

With hundreds of pages written on the event in three other topics, this one is solely dedicated to the actual gig, the pre and post thoughts on the event.

Feel free to join the discussion and most importantly, enjoy it everyone! [post28]

I hope to be able to participate in the freak-out tomorrow, but I will be at work unfortunately. Anyways, I think this is going to be a monumental highlight of Tori's career!

I honestly haven't been this excited about a Tori show (excluding ones I've attended myself) since I became a fan six years ago. Very jealous of those who are going!

Yay! I'm actually pretty excited about tonight. I'm going to try and meet up with some people from here before the show, which should be fun as well.
I'm amazed at how many people are making the journey to Amsterdam.

Rabih, will you be going? (I missed your chat on FB the other day...)

I wonder if she would ask the whole orchestra to stop and start right from the start if she fucks up. If so, that is really diva, ha. Looking forward to the show!

Maybe that setlist is for the cd and not for the show.

Rebel Angel
10-08-2010, 10:40 AM
I also read that setlist on Twitter and I am mad as hell about it. That's a very mean thing to do. I hope it is just his wishlist and not the actual setlist...

Hopefully the show starts with an Overture...

Callum
10-08-2010, 10:46 AM
Well, if the CD's actually happening.

Spoilers/reaction to posted setlist:

Doubt it's the CD tracklist as there are 3 songs from MWG on there. It would be... odd to do a studio rerecording so soon.

She's playing it safe with that setlist! Jeezo. Looking forward to hearing SCfF though.

dollsbitches
10-08-2010, 11:20 AM
I'm actually happy to already know the setlist. At least now I don't have to get my hopes up for a really unexpected song.

I don't think that's the actual setlist as it will be played.
Alphabetical order?

RisingPhoenix
10-08-2010, 12:53 PM
"Shall we play a game" isn't necessarily an official setlist. I'm skeptical this is the setlist.

mr. bad man
10-08-2010, 01:14 PM
Why is anyone taking it seriously? Why would someone have the setlist 5 hours before the show, and say "Let's play a game" and put it in alphabetical order.

I wouldn't mind that as a setlist at all, but I don't think that's it.

pancakefrompele
10-08-2010, 01:15 PM
I agree, although I do love the setlist that has been posted. What a magical show that setlist would make. However, I also agree with others. I don't think she'd do three MG songs as she has so many in her catalog that are way more popular.

well assuming that twitter setlist is true

it's hard to be disappointed by a setlist that includes songs like Dutchman, Anastasia, Gold Dust, Marianne, etc. but it still feels like a letdown to see she's picked lesser songs like Maybe California, Programmable Soda and Girl Disappearing over so many other amazing songs in her catalog that much better highlight her skills as a composer (and lyricist for that matter). like even off the top of my head, how about Doughnut Song, Daisy Dead Petals and Carbon instead? oh well.

still, very excited to see Our New Year and Precious Things on there.

Really! And what about Mr. Zebra. Come on now! Programmable Soda <<<<<< Mr. Zebra. I hear similarities in the music, but there's just no comparison when it comes to overall execution.

RisingPhoenix
10-08-2010, 02:24 PM
Snow Angel with the orchestra also intrigues me. I wonder if she is planning on releasing (whatever the hell it is she is planning on releasing) around christmas time. It would explain why there are three MWG songs on the setlist. (Once again assuming that the setlist is true.)

Bryan Alan
10-08-2010, 02:27 PM
Oh yeah, we're looking at a Christmas release, kids. Especially if the setlist really does include 3 MWG songs.

Regina Phalange
10-08-2010, 02:36 PM
Some of us didn't read the setlist, so can this thread be OPEN spoiler-free please? There is a spoiler-ific thread somewhere else. I'm not talking about stuff behind tags; I'm talking about openly talking about that leaked setlist. I've been looking forward to this all week and it sucks the fun out of it if I know what to expect. Not knowing and anticipating IS the fun part, and I am sure I am not the only one.

menju56
10-08-2010, 02:49 PM
I have to agree with Scarlet. I haven't looked at the set list and don't want to until the freakout. Otherwise it's not a freakout!
(If it turns out to be true, WHY did he post that beforehand?!)

Octopussy
10-08-2010, 03:19 PM
at least the set list is not in order. For the first song I'm calling Flying Dutchman or Yes Anastasia.


arrrghhh those song choices!! YUCK!!


No one likes Maybe California, Tori. Please let it go. Why not That Guy instead?
as much as I love Girl Disappearing... Pretty Good Year, Daisy Dead Petals or even Leather should be in its place. Those songs have been begging for this treatment for almost two decades now. If you have to represent ADP, you already have...
...Programmable Soda, which makes sense, as there are no strings in Mr. Zebra. I like that she's doing this one.
Our New Year is a great choice. I was hoping for Winter's Carol but I can't complain about New Year, Snow Angel and Star or Wonder.
I am kind of excited to hear Snow Cherries from France, as that will be completely new arrangement. All of these songs have orchestral arrangements we've heard before, except this one and Precious Things.


I guess it's not bad, but I thought for sure she'd whip out Cruel, or something OTHER than a ballad besides Precious Things (and P Soda). Looks like this will the Tori Amos emo-ballad hour after all.

Octopussy
10-08-2010, 03:33 PM
OIC, I guess that setlist was a joke or something.

I am still going to barf if she does Maybe California instead of Pretty Good Year.

stuper venus
10-08-2010, 03:43 PM
I'm guessing the setlist is just what's going to be on the CD. Kinda stupid for him to post that, though.

There are only 17 songs on the list and she's supposed to do 18, right? So SLTS is the missing track?

Yeah, but did you TRULY suspect anything else? I mean, we all had hopes for songs like

i i e e e, Not The Red Baron, Caught a Lite Sneeze, etc. but I always expected she would do a setlist similar to the one posted. Other then Girl Disappearing and Maybe California, I think it's a really solid setlist. You really can't go wrong with Flying Dutchman, Marianne, Gold Dust, and Yes, Anastasia in my opinion.

It'd be cool if there was one totally unexpected song that wasn't listed, but not likely given that Eric guy that works for the orchestra cannot keep his mouth shut. :P I guess I've never cared too much when it comes to setlists if the songs are predictable or shockers. From the shows I've seen, I've enjoyed more of the staples or songs in pretty good rotation than the oddball performances. (Like MAAG with the band. Give me Winter from that night any time over that.)

My only (pretty major) disappointment will be if a certain song from UTP isn't included. In my opinion, it would be a crime and a missed opportunity to exclude that song in favor of a couple of the others that are on that list. I'm sure everybody feels that away about at least 1 song, but come on. It's quintessential Tori.

Has Shenale done all of her string arrangements? I think he has done most of them on the setlist. That is why I'm not surprised. Wasn't he the one getting the orchestra in shape? It would make sense having him choose from songs he was most familiar with. Oh, and I am not unhappy with the setlist either. I've seen worse, and without a full orchestra.

This just occurred to me: Could all the MWG inclusions indicate a possible Christmas time CD or DVD release?
