    yeah, i was gonna say based on some peoples' reviews that the 2007 DC show seemed to be pretty bad and one of the worst of the tour.

    I was at that DC show and it was definitely the worst of the 4 shows I saw on that tour. It wasn't terrible though, the setlist was just generic (Leather/Jackie/1000 Oceans trifecta) and for everything after the Isabel set, Tori seemed a bit zoned out.

    As far as the worst/most disappointing Tori shows, my 3 are Camden 2005, DC 2007, and the eTown radio show in 2009 (terrible audience, poor vocals, and Jeanette Isabella which I really wanted to hear got cut because Loudon Wainwright fucked up twice and went over his time.)

    Oh boy, I had blocked that eTown show out of my memory. It wasn't a total waste; I never thought I'd hear Gold Dust live. But other than that, no. Those vocals. Eeeergh. And I didn't know that about JI getting cut. Not one of my favorites, but I still would've happily taken that over LW fucking up repeatedly. It was kind of funny the first time, and then... it wasn't anymore.

    ^ what the fuck kind of venue is that?! it looks like a fish market.
    It basically comes down to that word: love. I guess that's what it's all about.

    I haven't had a bad show but I'll nominate LA 2005. My friend literally fell sleep and wasn't even awakened by the crowd's applause. He said he fell asleep somewhere during "Ruby..." and woke up during "Toast". That's hilarious to me.

    Glastonbury in 2005 was my Wallingford. It was a short set anyway, and while the song selection was bad enough, the performance was wretched. Plus, she played in the acoustic tent, and the sound was just wrong for her, sadly emphasizing the super-nasal vocals. I was done after that. If it hadn't been for some particularly impressive 2007 shows I got as bootlegs (Graz!) my fancard would have stayed well and truly burnt!

    You seriously have no idea how shit-tastic that show was. The weather sucked (torrential rain, for like 40 hours straight). The venue sucked. The setlist sucked. Little miss Priss' shitty Star Wars birthday party sucked. I had infinitely more fun hanging out with friends during the day and that's about all I care to remember from that whole thing.

    I was not a fan of Baltimore 2005. It's the most "auto-pilot" version of Tori I think I've ever seen.

    Chicago 2009. Without a doubt. My friend and I left completely depressed. For me, it was a combination of shitty seats, a sleepy setlist that Tori couldn't have cared less about, and honestly I really think the acoustics blow in the Chicago Theatre.

    I mean, this past Chicago show, I thought the sound was bad - it has to be the venue. The Chicago Theatre is pretty, but give me the Beacon Theatre anyday!!!

    Oh, that Cleveland venue is Tower City Amphitheater, although while it was still open it was referred to as Tower Shitty Amphitheater. It's basically the worst venue ever constructed. I mean, it was a tent built over a parking lot.

    For me, the worst was Royce Hall, Los Angeles, 2005. It was the only time I've ever heard YA live, and what a complete letdown it was: the "climax" was croaky, the high note was avoided altogether. Add an eleven minute Beekeeper on top of that, and I was a very disappointed EWF.

    Listening to the boot again, though, I suppose it wasn't that bad; at least I didn't get C&G or Hootchie Woman. And although I remember being really irritated by the nasal quality of her voice at the show, at least it was on-key nasal voice.

    Every show after that one has made up for that one, though, including 3 during the ADP tour, so the bad taste is outta my mouth now.

    Cleveland 2005. There was so many memorable events that happened before, during, and after the show that I don't regret suffering through it. But the show itself was what nightmares are made of. During the show you could see a freight boat floating behind the stage and I'm pretty sure that it was coming to claim our souls. And the stage was like eight feet off the ground which made my pit tickets a waste. I do recall a really amazing Liquid Diamonds from that show though.
