Tori Amos to play Boston’s Orpheum Theatre

, Staff

Tori Amos has announced the US leg of her “Night of Hunters” tour which will bring her to Massachusetts in December. The singer-songwriter will play Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Tuesday, December 6. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $39.50 to $49.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Amos will be touring in support of her forthcoming album, Night of Hunters, which is scheduled to hit stores in September. The album was inspired by select classical pieces spanning the last 400 years. With Night of Hunters, Amos carries on the classical tradition of variations on a theme: taking inspiration from classical forms to create a bold new work while paying tribute to the mastery of the original compositions.

On Night of Hunters, which she wrote and produced, Amos commented in a press release, “I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter.”

“One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us,” the singer explained.

Night of Hunters, her 12th studio effort, follows 2009’s Midwinter Graces. For the new album, Amos broke a decade-long collaboration with her studio and touring bandmates to work with a variety of new musicians, including the Apollon Musagète Quartet.
