June 23, 1998 - An article about the Heineken Jammin' Festival in Imola, Italy on June 21, 1998 appeared on Sonicnet's Music News Of The World web site on June 22, 1998. The article quotes Tori from a press conference that was held before the concert and also reviews the entire festival, including Tori's performance.
June 23, 1998 - Hi, yesterday I went to see Tori at the Heineken Jammin' Festival in Imola, Italy, and Tori was, as expected, wonderful. Here's the setlist (it's exact, song order and everything).
Yes, she played only 8 songs, but I wasn't expecting much more in that setting :( This is very sad for all her Italian fans, luckily I'm going to see her in Madison Square Gardens this summer, so I'm ok. The show lasted about an hour, and Tori was in top form, full of energy, smiling, having fun, and her voice and playing were superb.
I think everything's been said about these girls live... they all sounded great, iieee had a new piece in the middle (something like 'you know how I feel', sung and played beautifully on the piano), Waitress had the new ending, and she started Cornflake Girl by playing and singing the chorus, in a low voice, alone on the piano... this was just beautiful, I don't know if she's done it before.
The show started at 5:25, so all the lighting effects were lost in the daylight, but on the other hand, I've never seen Tori look more beautiful than she did yesterday. The natural light made her light skin and red hair really stand out, and there was a constant wind blowing in her hair that really made her look like a girl form another planet (it was also very hot, and Tori was wiping her face with her arm in between songs). Also, there was no darkness in between songs, so we got to see her 100% of the time (she was drinking Evian). She was wearing a cute grey short-sleeve top and dark blue jeans. Unfortunately the stage was pretty high so I didn't get to see her shoes.
She came on with her two-hand wave, smiling (of course I was crying), and the only time she spoke was to introduce the band.
The audience was really well behaved, but not really loving - usually Italian audiences are very warm, but being a festival, there were too many people not there for Tori. It's a shame she didn't play Spark, because MTV is showing the video a lot, so many people would have recognized it - they were all singing along to Cornflake Girl.
Anyway, it was definitely worth the drive from Rome even though it *was* short.
