Tori Amos announces New Orleans concert

Singer-songwriter Tori Amos will headline a show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater in New Orleans on Tuesday, November 14.

The versatile performer—known for ‘90s hits like “God,” and “A Sorta Fairytale”—will be on the road in support of her fifteenth studio album, Native Invader, which marks her first release since 2014’s Unrepentant Geraldines. The new record will be released on September 8 via Decca Record’s.

“The songs on ‘Native Invader’ are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts. The record looks to Nature and how, through resilience, she heals herself,” Amos says. “The songs also wrestle with the question: what is our part in the destruction of our land, as well as ourselves, and in our relationships with each other? In life there can be the shock of unexpected fires, floods, earthquakes, or any cataclysmic ravager – both on the inside and outside of our minds. Sonically and visually, I wanted to look at how Nature creates with her opposing forces, becoming the ultimate regenerator through her cycles of death and re-birth. Time and time again she is able to renew, can we find this renewal for ourselves?”

Tickets for Amos’ show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater will go on sale Friday, July 14. A fan pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, July 12, but interested parties must register as part of an effort to reduce ticket-scalping.
