Whether you are a long-time local fan of Tori Amos who may have been lucky to see an early performance of hers at a DC piano bar back in the eighties, or someone who was only recently introduced to her music, it’s a delight for all of the above that Tori Amos will be returning to her childhood stomping grounds this Monday with a performance at DAR Constitutional Hall.
Now in her late forties, Amos has quite the impressive resume with eight Grammy nominations and was named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People.” She has also survived years of record label changes and conflicts in the music industry, but her music has always gracefully shown through.
Over the years she has created albums where the music was ripe with sexuality and the search for self-identity, to those about beekeeping, the art of pornography, the season of winter, and most recently has delved into creating songs with a classical music influence. Interestingly, her 1999 release of live material, To Venus and Back, included the song that was the first major-label single available for sale as a digital download.
With such an extensive catalogue it can be hard to pick just one, but to win ticket’s to Tori Amos’ performance this Monday tell us in the comments below your favorite song from Ms. Amos, whether it be a big hit single or a small B-side.
We call “Cornflake Girl!” Don’t even think about it.
The deadline for entry is 9 am on Monday the 5th. If contacted as the winner, you have by noon to respond by email for that night’s show.
