The Kings Theater in Brooklyn, NY, will host pioneering musician, author and activist Tori Amos and her Ocean to Ocean Tour for two consecutive nights on May 11 and 12.
Excited to reconnect with fans, his gripping live show will bring the new album, Ocean to Ocean, to life and include some career-long fan favorites. Tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, February 4 at 10 a.m. ET at https://www.kingstheatre.com/calendar/tori-amos-ocean-to-ocean-tour/.
Ocean to Ocean was released digitally and on CD in October and was made available as a beautiful vinyl wrap last Friday January 28th. The record was widely acclaimed by fans and media alike, with features spanning Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Stereogum, SPIN and NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO. The record debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Current Alternative Albums Chart and No. 6 on the Billboard Album Sales Chart, marking its tenth “Top 10” appearance.
Ocean to Ocean is Amos’ most personal work in years – an album brimming with warmth and connection, with deep roots in his early songs. While communities around the world have suffered loss of life, live music, travel and more to watch, Tori has been going through a tough time during the pandemic. She descended into a lower emotional state than she had been for a long time – but the depths became creative, forcing a return to the kind of introspection she recognized in her debut album Little Earthquakes. The new collection is an expression of kinship and love, of emotional and geographical dislocation. It explores environmental concerns, the stresses of the pandemic for those on the cusp of adulthood, empowerment, loss and healing delivered with Tori’s urgency and passion.
A cross-platform pioneer, Tori Amos’ second book RESISTANCE, a New York Times bestseller, was released in 2020. Unrepentant Geraldines was her eighth studio album to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 Chart. Her staunchly feminist musical The Light Princess debuted at No. 2 on the Broadway Billboard Chart. Nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, she was the label’s first major artist to offer a single for download, had her songs turned into graphic novels, and produced groundbreaking videos throughout her career. In late 2016, she released the title track “Flicker” from the acclaimed Netflix documentary Audrie and Daisy, tackling high school rape issues. A renowned humanitarian, Tori was the first public voice of RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network), which is the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the United States, and continues to be a member of its National Leadership Council.
Tori will be touring North America, the UK and Ireland in 2022. For more details visit www.toriamos.com.
