Tori performed in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday, February 5, 2003 at the Jahrhunderthalle . The opening act was Howie Day. This was the final show of Tori's European Scarlet's Walk tour. (There is evidence she may do a few festivals in Europe later this year but nothing definite.)
Special thanks to Richard Galbraith for phoning me with the set list.

From Richard Galbraith:
Richard said this show was not as good as the night before; perhaps expectations were extra high after Paris. After Sweet Sangria, Tori told the crowd that this was their last stop before going back over the water. She said something about having a heavy heart, and invited the Europeans to come over to the states to see her if they could and to not let the Americans push them around! The only time Tori deviated from her written set list was with the surprise third encore Twinkle.
Note From Mikewhy: I want to sincerely thank Matt Page and Richard Galbraith for taking the time to call me after most of the European shows this winter. There is no way I could have gotten the set lists on The Dent so quickly and so accurately without your help and I appreciated it so much. It was also great fun to hear many of the other European fans on the phone who said hello and gave comments about the show. You are all truly wonderful and I wish I could have been there with you!
From Michael Pluegge:
I have to say that yesterday's gig in Frankfurt was the best Tori Gig I ever saw since my first one in Liverpool back in 1996.
She wasn't very talkative, but the sound and choice of songs were extraordinarily good. Much much better than at the gigs I saw during her last tour (except for Mannheim which I think was superb). It was so good to hear a great mixture of some "real classics", excellent album tracks and new songs. The versions were brilliant, too. The setlist says it all really. Maybe the fact that I had first row tickets this time had a great influence on this experience. Still - I can't share or feel the necessity of rushing to the stage before the encores. For me, it just causes a "cut", a change of atmosphere into the negative. People aren't meant to stand at the stage when others are enjoying and absorbing the music and intimacy, are they? What's the point?
From Stephan Röhl:
Here are the words Tori spoke in Frankfurt before she introduced the the band:
"So - this is our last stop before we go back over the water. And - we leave with heavy hearts because it´s been very very eye- opening being over here. *she took a breath* Don´t let those americans push you around. Well, the ones that believe in the same thing are counting on you."
