Cool! I'm glad you like it. I think it is my least favorite Tori record, although I still like it (I pretty much like everything she does). I loved it for awhile but I am not moved to listen to it often, whereas I still grab Scarlet's Walk on any given Sunday morning. Everything on Beekeeper sounds better live, though, than on the record. The live versions of the title song, for example, with an extended organ intro, and Parasol (one of my favorites, too) are really incredible.

I definitely think Toast is for her brother. Apparently there was an emotional show in Cary, NC, the other night (near where she grew up so it was basically the hometown show). When I hear it, I think of my best friend who died in 2001, who turned me on to Tori many years ago. The record was also released on my friend's birthday and he was a Pisces (Goodbye), not to mention there is a song with my name (Martha) so I think there was some funny business going on on the other side.

Anyway, nice to have another voice here in the Tori thread!

I need to sit myself down with this record and really listen to it. On the few brief listens I've given it so far, it hasn't done much for me.

Scarlet's Walk, while pleasant, never really grew on me either, although Strange Little Girls finally did grow on me, and now I love half of it and loathe a few of the songs. I'll take that just fine.

I haven't seen her live since her Strange Little Girls tour .... maybe I need to get off my ass and get to a show.

Duh!

Seriously, this tour is so different. Tori solo doing random songs from throughout her career and at least 2 interesting covers every night. Some shows she only plays like 4 songs from The Beekeeper. Who goes on tour in support of a new record and only plays 4 songs from it? You can't even begin to guess what she'll play each night. Anything and everything is possible.

Did anyone see her on the Today Show this morning? She did Winter and Sweet The Sting, those are the two I saw maybe she did more

It sounded beautiful and she looked beautiful, I liked her shirt too I'm more of a casual fan of Tori, but I am definitely looking forward to the concert

I did. Can I ask if her performance on the Today show is typical of one of her live shows? Because although I quite enjoyed the songs and how she sounded, I found her manner of performing very distracting. She just looked really uncomfortable and watching made me very antsy, almost itchy.

She looked fine when I saw her last night, I didn't notice that anything was "strange" . It was amazing, I am in love

Like I said, being a more casual fan I'm not familiar w/ so many of her songs..in the piano bar part she did Total Eclipse Of The Heart, which I thought was incredible. Also Angie.

She did a cover of Dream On, and she told a story of how (I'm assuming it was Steven Tyler), protected her daughter during some blackout in Detroit. I had to leave right after that to beat the Stones traffic, so I'm sure I missed some great stuff. I couldn't believe how at one point she was playing the organ w/ one hand and the piano w/ another. She also said thanks for being there on her last night of being 41, today's her birthday.

Yes, this was during the big Northeast blackout of 2003. She and Aerosmith were both scheduled to play in Detroit, were staying at the same hotel and hung out when both their shows were canceled.

Yay, Mrs. Springsteen, I'm so glad you enjoyed the show! You missed three songs, Pretty Good Year, Playboy Mommy and 1000 Oceans. (I'm the nerd who checks the setlists everyday.)

There was one song I fell in love with, I'm in such a fog now that I can't remember..one of the lines had to do w/ "if you had treated me better", something like that. So if you can help me out joyfulgirl

It was sort of like my life story and it was a gorgeous song

Oh and I cried during Winter for some reason

Unfortunately I forgot about it even though I've known about it for months. In general I don't think she comes across as well on TV so maybe that's what was going on, but it could've just been her usual style of performing which is very provocative and can put some people off. Onstage (not always on TV), however, I think she's one of the most comfortable people I've ever seen because she's been performing since she was like 13.

Yes I would say she doesn't come across as well on TV. I enjoyed the provocative style she has

I don't recognize that lyric right off but she often adlibs live. Here's the setlist, if that helps. The obsessed fan who follows her around and sees every damn show and calls in the setlists to the guy who runs the website said it was the best show of the whole tour!

Oh, of course it was. I don't know that song too well because I never listen to that record. But it did sound great live when she played it in Denver earlier this year.

Happy 42nd Birthday Tori! I hope she has a wonderful day celebrating with her family and friends.

MrsSpringsteen, word is you witnessed one of the best Tori shows in history. I am so very jealous I'm glad to hear you had such a great time.

I couldn't believe the setlist when I checked last night...Playboy Mommy...Garlands??? *sigh* I can only hope a similar setlist will unfold for Toronto. Too bad Meet & Greets aren't possible at the Molson Ampitheatre cause I would love to meet her.

Thanks for your replies Mrs. Springsteen and Joyfulgirl.

It seems as if what I saw was pretty normal for her performances, so I best just skip her live shows and just get cds. I do know several people who also adore her live shows, and that's great. I think I would be completely distracted by her manner of performing, and I'd miss the music. Each to his or her own. Just not my thing.
