    Her voice sounds fine to me on what I've heard. I quite like the backing track now and then because otherwise a solo piano set can get too same-y.

    Also, she's 54 and she's said she is not sure how much longer she can keep doing solo tours. This could literally be her last proper solo tour so I just want to appreciate that and enjoy it and not complain about her voice/the setlist/the background sheets etc.

    I definitely do NOT think it is Tori's last tour or solo tour or whatever. If she was thinking of slowing down she would definitely make this public news so we would all travel the world and sell out her shows. She is just feeling a bit blah at the moment. She will be touring until she is in her 80s (as Mark requested when he proposed - seeing her in the garden at 80) and she would let us know if world tours were going to significantly slow down / stop.

    She went through a whole "I am a classic car" - "I don't know how much longer I can tour" back in 2007 with ADP. Here we are a decade later. The 2014 tour was AMAZING and NI is shitting all over ADP as an album.

    Well she has mentioned it twice already that I know of in these recent interviews that she can't do it forever. I think she's certainly thinking about it more now than before.

    I don't mean because her voice is not up to it, her voice in 2014 was amazing I thought. I think it's more a question of stamina and health issues. I am sure she will keep doing shows here and there but am not sure we will get lengthy solo tours anymore.

    I was at the show and it didn't feel short.

    Many of the songs were extended with extra repetitions and noodling on the Wurlitzer which I really enjoyed although I lost patience towards the end of the show.

    Tori was in good voice and had a lot of the raw energy which was missing the last time I saw her when she toured NOH in Belfast. Yes there were a few bloopers but on the whole it was a solid show. Mother and Little Earthquakes were great but A Sorta Fairytale and Purple People were a bit all over the place.

    Now for a rant: I found the behaviour of some of the other fans really off-putting, leaving their seats mid-song to go for drinks/a cigarette or whatever, meaning that everyone seated in the same row had to stand to alllow them out. I had to stand up at least 6 or 7 times and the same thing was happening in almost every row. It totally disrupted my enjoyment of the event. Tori didn't seem to mind though.

    That happened at the Albert Hall on the last tour, it's so rude.
    They say you were something in those formative years...

    It happens whenever I see someone at an outdoor venue like an amphitheater.

    I've never seen it in a concert hall, but definitely at club gigs and festivals.

    wtf i don't get it, i know it's not a holy mess for everyone and 90 min they've been waiting for for years like in my case, but i find it extremely disrespectful as she's working her ass off on that stage.
