From Richard G. and Eric:
The sad news about the bombings earlier that day in London were very much on the mind of both Tori and the audience during the concert. Tori did reference the terrorist bombings, created a special improv, and selected songs that were appropriate as well.
Tori did alter the show from her written set list. She was suppose to perform Rattlesnakes between Seaside and The Beekeeper, but decided to drop it. Also, the second encore was suppose to be Goodbye, Pisces and China, but she did China and Hey Jupiter instead.
The show was emotionally charged because of the events in London, and Tori mentioned the bombings during her hello early in the show, saying something about music being a good way to heal. Before Crucify she did an improv that included the lyrics, "More blood, more tears today, your generation must find a way to heal..." It was very beautiful. She also performed Imagine and Seaside, which were both appropriate given what happened today. This was all very well received by the audience.
After Seaside, she whispered "beekeeper" to let her stage crew know thats he was skipping Rattlesnakes, During Imagine, she sang the words "sisterhood" and "humanhood" in addition to "brotherhood".
The venue was outdoors again, but this one was large and not really intimate. There was a large gap between Tori and the first row, it was general admission, and there was standing during the show.
Eric later emailed me the following comments:
- Tori's improvisation before Crucify also included the words (towards the audience - and especially the 'next generation' represented in the audience): "you must use your feet to walk the walk - you must use your mouth to talk the talk..."
- The entrance fee for the show in Rome, which included the admission to the festival, which went on through the night after Tori's performance, was only 12 Euros! I hope that Tori was able to make some new 'friends' during this concert, since the low ticket price in combination with the 'Roma fiesta' may have encouraged people to come to the show, who would not have attended a 'normal' show.
- The Italian audiences continue to applaud in a positive way during certain moments of many songs. One very nice moment came yesterday during Playboy Mommy, when the line "from here to Birmingham I got a few friends" triggered a very friendly round of applause, when Tori indicated towards the audience that they were meant as well.
- Before Take To The Sky, Tori said that she does not have a band and that she does not have a drummer. Therefore, she would need some help and she said that she would show us. Then, she demonstrated the clapping as usual on her piano and the audience kept clapping in this rhythm for the entire song.
