(Put this in the wrong Tori thread! Lemme just copy/paste this over to here now.) Was at the show in Chicago. Didn’t think I’d have time to go because of work, but somehow everything *just* aligned. Got a nosebleed seat last minute and ran out of my apartment door like I was late to school. Lucked out because my spot sounded amazing, and I had a direct eye view of Tori in a historic building. Also the light design was incredible. She was in excellent voice. Shoutout to the band for being so musically tight (even with an “oops!” moment in the drums on “Cornflake Girl”—the three of them looked like they we’re going to try to salvage the chorus, but the audience kept singing along so she shrugged her shoulders and kept going haha.) (…also the audience was super annoying during “Silent All These Years”—something so bizarre about audiences that shriek during intimate ballads, but OK werk audience, I get it, it's a hit—regardless her phrasing was super interesting, like she was having a ball finding new discoveries in the song herself which was beautiful to witness.) “Girl”, “Ocean to Ocean”, “Putting the Damage On”, and “Liquid Diamonds” were stunning. One of the best renditions of “Caught a Light Sneeze” I've heard. “Russia” was visceral as fuck. She was so cute when she forgot “Taxi Ride” was on her own set list. Oh, and “Bouncing Off Clow-ee-youds” was so crisply performed, it was practically a disco. (edit: OH! And "Addition of Light Divided" made me cry.) lol at the encore being back to back “Space Dog” meets “Back to Life” by Soul II Soul followed by “Precious Things”. Bought an overpriced bookmark that came in an organza gift bag, and talked to really nice people in line. An incredible way to spend my night.
