Mariah Carey Has Announced A New World Tour In Support Of ‘Me, I Am Mariah . . . The Elusive Chanteuse’

The 'Elusive Chanteuse' Show

Despite the lackluster sales of her album Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse (or maybe in an attempt to help inspire sales), Mariah Carey has decided to launch a new world tour in support of her latest album. Mimi announced on her official website that she is kicking off The Elusive Chanteuse Show in Japan before taking the tour to other parts of Asia. At this point, there are no US dates announced but my HOPE is that MC will bring her tour to America at some point soon. Click below to read the full text of the press release announcement of her new tour. More »

Tori Amos In TORIonto

The TV Guide

For our fourth and final Tori Amos show of her current Unrepentant Geraldines Tour here in North America, my BFF Sarah and I made the 4 hour drive up to Toronto, Ontario for one last hurrah. Sarah and I have made the trek from Detroit to Toronto many times before but it has been a very long time since we’ve made our way to Canada together so we were excited all week long looking forward to this weekend. The drive was very fun but we got a bit nervous that traffic would make us late so we were a bit stressed for the last leg of the drive. We managed to make it to Toronto with plenty of time to get ready, get to the venue, hang out for a bit with Tori‘s daughter Natashya Lórien before the show (again) AND get settled into our seats before the show even started (thankfully Tori was running a bit late, too). The show last night was magic! We had the best night ever. More »

Tori Amos Is ‘Unrepentant’ In Detroit, MI

The TV Guide

Last night my BFF Sarah and I made our way to the Fox Theater in downtown Detroit, MI to see our 3rd of 4 Tori Amos concerts on her current Unrepentant Geraldines Tour. As you may recall, Sarah made her way to LA a couple of weeks ago so that we could see Tori in LA and in San Diego. This weekend, we have tickets for Tori in Detroit and Toronto, Ontario. It’s really hard to compare and rate shows because they are all magical in their own right. It’s always wonderful to see Tori play in Detroit. Sigh. So many years of great memories here. Last night, Sarah and I had the best seats ever and we got to meet and chat with Tori‘s daughter Natashya Lórien before the show. Tori was perfection … it was a really special night. More »

Beyoncé & Jay Z Have Already Made $100 Million From The ‘On The Run’ Tour

Ticket sales to more than 90% capacity -- OF STADIUMS

Despite rumors of poor ticket sales and marital discord, Billboard magazine is reporting today that Beyoncé and Jay Z have thus far amassed $100 million dollars from their current On The Run Tour. The show has been selling at about 90% capacity — of MASSIVE stadiums — and it’s not even finished yet. After B-Jay wrap up their US dates in San Francisco, CA this week, they will take the show to Paris, France for their only international date … which is being filmed for a concert special to air on HBO later this year. Without question, the On The Run Tour will finish as a massively huge financial success. I guess that billion dollars in the elevator is about to get more padding. More »

TRUST ME – You Do NOT Want To See Photos Of The Bloody Finger That Got Bit Off At The Beyoncé & Jay Z Concert

You don't, I'm telling you

So, um, remember the story we learned earlier today of that guy who got into a physical altercation with another guy and bit off the tip of his finger at Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run concert in Pasadena, CA on Saturday night? Well, OF COURSE, TMZ got their hands on the gruesome photos of the guy who lost his finger and they are sharing the photos with the world. Against my better judgement, I clicked to see the photos and I’m telling you, they are gnarly and gross. I simply cannot share the photos here but because I had to satisfy my curiosity, I’m guessing there are others out there who have the same morbid curiosity. I have a feeling you’re not gonna wanna see the photos … but I also have a feeling that that warning won’t keep some of you from looking anyway. It’s not a pretty sight, believe me.

Beyoncé & Jay Z SLAAAAY LA With Their ‘On The Run’ Tour

The TV Guide

At long last, I finally got to experience Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run Tour in person last night and I can tell you right now, I was murdered right there in the Rose Bowl. I knew the show would be great but LORDE, I was not expecting it to be so big and so epic. Because I previously sprung for VIP tickets to see Beyoncé in concert before, I know that the ONLY way to see Bey live is up close and personal. I know I shouldn’t have done it but I sprung for the VIP tix next to the stage for the show last night and I LIVED MY LIFE like nobody’s biz. I took about a million photos and a few videos … some that you can see below. More »

Watch: Tori Amos Mashed Up Her Song ‘Crazy’ With Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy In Love’ (AND IT’S AMAZING)

LOOOOVE!!!!
Crazy/In Love

My friend and PITNB reader Erin was in attendance at Tori Amos‘s concert performance in Austin, TX last night and she sends video of Tori‘s BRILLIANT performance of Beyoncé‘s song Crazy In Love. She tells me that her friends Kristen and Joe requested the Crazy In Love cover at a couple of Tori‘s meet and greets and she played it for them live last night. As you can see in Erin‘s video embedded above, Tori first performs her song Crazy (from her album Scarlet’s Walk) and then seques into Crazy In Love at around the 3:10 mark of the video. Tori doing Beyoncé is EVERYTHING! Please enjoy, I know you will.

Tori Amos By The Bay

The TV Guide

Last night my friend Sarah and I made our way down to San Diego, CA to see our second of four Tori Amos concerts on her current Unrepentant Geraldines Tour and SURPRISE! We had the Best Time Ever … at the show. Our trip got off to a bummer start when Adriana had to drop out of taking the trip with us because of car troubles. Then we dealt with ONLY the worst traffic ever both on the way down and on the way home … but in between all of that drama, we enjoyed one of the best Tori Amos shows ever. Tori played for Sarah and me our favorite song together, Tear In Your Hand. The whole setlist was crafted to make every single person in the audience cry their eyes out so … yeah, it was the best.

An Evening With Tori Amos & Tash

Sarah and Mark’s first full day here in LA was a great one! The two of them met up with Adriana for a day at the beach and then we all convened at my place to get ready for a fun night ahead.

Afterward, we all met up at the Red Lion Tavern in Silverlake for a nightcap … and then we went across the street to the Cha Cha Lounge for a photobooth shoot. We like fun! More »
