Tori was in a playful mood tonight. She was wearing a diaphanous green dress, pink and white funky high heels, and a chunky necklace. Sinsuality blended nicely into Beauty Queen/Horses, then she said hello to everyone and commented on how long it had been between visits to Perth. Then she did a great version of Winter, much more embellished than the album version. Mother Revolution was good; lots of swapping between organ and piano. During Take to the Sky she was banging her right hand on the face of the piano, and we the audience weren't sure whether to clap along or what. Jamaica Inn was nice, i didn't recognise it for a while though. She moved over to the electric piano for Cool on Your Island, which sounded great.
She told us all to get our margaritas and lemonades ready for Tori's Piano Bar, and that she normally had a sign, but that it was on its way to Adelaide, so "fuck them." She said she had been pleased with the requests she had received from Perth, and went into Live to Tell, a very elaborate and pretty version. I'm on Fire was good too.
Spring Haze was amazing, and the audience were pleased to hear Not the Red Baron. She shifted to the keyboard again for Bells For Her, which was a real tearjerker. Tori did an abridged version of Yes, Anastasia; she started at the crescendo just before "thought i'd been through this in 1919." This is my absolute favourite Tori song, and even though i was really glad to hear her play any of it, for me the build up and release is the best part. also, the "in the mall and in the datemines" section was a lot slower than the album version.
The Beekeeper was played only on the organ, Tori seemed really affected by this song. Then quick as a flash she ran off stage. When she came back on, she played that first repeated note of Leather, and whispered "Bless You" before she started the song in earnest, which everyone loved. Hey Jupiter was perfect, performed both on organ and piano. Then she waved goodbye and skipped offstage.
When she returned, she did a very touching version of Josephine, and closed with Twinkle, which was a great conclusion. The audience would have kept on calling for a third encore, but the house lights went up. She sure doesn't hang around bowing!!
If half the musicians in the world, had one quarter of Tori's talent, music today would be infinitely better!
