Ocean to Ocean enjoyed a delicious vinyl issue at the top of the year, and at the time of its formal release last October, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Current Alternative Albums Chart and #6 on the Billboard Album Sales Chart, marking the artist’s tenth “Top 10” appearance. The new effort invokes an emotional and geographic disassociation and renewal, created during a pandemic that set so many of us off kilter. Amos, as she’s wont to do, churned the upheaval and strife into a poignant and personal ensemble that will no doubt raptly swallow up the Orpheum.
Music, of course, isn’t the only medium that’s been branded by Amos’ success. Her second book, RESISTANCE, released in 2020, was a New York Times Bestseller. Her musical, The Light Princess, debuted at #2 on the Broadway Billboard Chart. According to the unequivocal media material that surrounds the closure of this tour, Amos “was the first major label artist to offer a single for download, has had her songs turned into graphic novels and has produced ground-breaking videos throughout her career… A noted humanitarian, Tori was the first public voice for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization, and continues to be member of its National Leadership Council.”
And thus we ask… can it get any more badass than Tori Amos?
Tickets can still be hard here!
