Summer Brings Tori Amos & Ben Folds Piano Party

The dark queen of piano-pop and mistress of the creepy fanatical following, Tori Amos, is packing up her prized possessions, warming up her fingers and getting ready to hit the road for the summer. Although she's basically been touring since her most recent album, Scarlet's Walk, dropped on Epic last November, this sizable 25-date leg will blast off in Redmond, WA, on July 26 and will work its way across the fruited plain and the amber waves of grain until setting down on September 3 in Mickey's backyard of Orlando. Fellow ivory tickler Ben Folds will warm the piano bench for Ms. Amos, so prepare for a full night of key-based songsmithery.
