From Richard G. and Eric:
Tori performed the show tonight exactly the way it was written on her official set list. Tori seems to be really warming up to Italy, as tonight was the best show in Italy so far, and one of Richard's favorite shows this year. The venue was once again outdoors, so it was an amazing warm night under the stars.
Tori did many interesting improvs tonight. Before and during Past The Mission, she did an impressive improv with lyrics that included, "I walk these streets a long time ago, I walk these steets today."
She did a really interesting acapella improv at the end of Crazy. She also did one before Purple People, which lyrics that included, "might be green, never been seen..."
During Cool On Your Island, she pointed to her own dress during the line, "I've got a brand new dress babe."
Before the covers she mentioned that she had some requests she was going to do in Rome but then thought Why do it in Rome when you can do it here. She then mentioned something about Da Vinci's ghost finding her here anyway.
Richard said that Past The Mission was extra strong and the best version of that song he has heard. He was also very impressed by her version of Like A Prayer tonight.
Eric mentioned that the crowd clapped along during Like A Prayer and that Yes, Anastasia works really well as a closing song of the night, with the long, high note she sings at the end.
Earlier that day Tori had a nice and friendly meet and greet with about 30 fans.
Eric later emailed me these additional comments:
- The a capella part in Crazy was at the end of the 'normal' song. No improvisation, just the last lines of the song performed completely without the support of the Rhodes e-piano.
- The improvisation before Purple People was about the individual 'colors' that everybody may represent. I remember something like "So tell me what color you are. Maybe you are green or something we have never seen..."
- Toast was indeed very emotional on this night - I also experienced this even more as during previous performances.
From Paul W.:
The show was great and very solid. This was my first (and unfortunately only) date on the Original Sinsuality tour so I can't compare with the other venues, but the Parco Villa Solaria was awesome for an outdoor Tori concert. She did some amazing stuff between the piano and the organ, playing both at once and making the crowd go wild with applause because of it. Like A Prayer was a stellar cover, very beautifully done. My favorite piece through the whole set was her encore performance of Toast.. beautiful, powerful, emotionally raw and touching. She was in tears by the end of it.. so was two thirds of the audience. That song was a definite gem in the heart of Tuscany last night. I am envious of everyone who is following her through Italy.
