    Agreed. This is hard to explain, but I almost feel that the guardrails of iieee and RK are actively working against the atmosphere that she's trying to create on a lot of nights. I feel like Broken Arrow/Pancake as staples would mesh so much better with a lot of these sets. I realize this is totally subjective though, so I'm going to stop talking now

    I was listening on the Periscope, and when she did that, I was like "WTF? Tori, honey, get to a doctor and please don't make that sound again."

    Y’all suck, I love the two staple songs for this tour where they are and how they are
    'Tis better to bend with the wind than stand tall and be broken. Therein lies hope; therein lies freedom.

    That’s my favorite iteration too, @NightHunter

    I've been wondering if maybe those unfortunate circumstances might get her thinking about altering the keys more in the future. There is no other way for her to perform right now, so hopefully those enforced changes initiate some sort of reapproach to her singing. As you rightfully said, there is no need to transpose every song from the catalogue. She does nail a lot of the high register repertoire without sounding off. In a lot of cases, unfortunately, the straining and whispering exceeds dramatic effect and exposes the vocal performance for what it truly is is: misplaced and overchallanged. While her voice still sounds pretty much under the weather right now, I can't help but notice how authentic, credible and – most importantly – beautiful she sounds when using her lower register. Properly rested, I'm sure she'd leave us with her jaws to the floor if she began to use her voice more thoroughly like that. "Russia" sounded wonderful as did the rest of the songs she had to transpose.

    Yes, exactly - when she's in her lower register I can hear no struggle in her voice. This Honey for example is miles better than the one from Boston where she tried to reach these 'heeeees' high notes. It's not 2001 anymore and personally, I don't expect it to be.

    Yes! I'm in. It just fits so well with who she is now, not trying to be and repeat someting that she was a long time ago. Just be more relaxed and not having to prove something. I love that MMF.
