Unless we’re mistaken (and someone will surely tell us if we’re mistaken), Tori Amos hasn’t played a show in Milwaukee since 2009. That’s set to change Sunday, May 29, when the music icon makes a stop at the Bradley Symphony Center (a.k.a. the remodeled Warner Grand Theater at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave.).
Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $49.50 – $125, and go on sale Friday, February 4 at 10 a.m.
Amos is touring in support of her 2021 album Ocean To Ocean. “Ocean To Ocean is Amos’ most personal work in years,” a press release says, “an album bursting with warmth and connection, with deep roots in her earliest song writing. As communities around the world suffered the loss of life, live music, travel, and much at all to observe, Tori had a difficult time during the pandemic. She descended to an emotional state lower than she had been to for a long time—but the depths became creative, forcing a return to the kind of introspection she recognized from 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 restraints of the pandemic for those on the cusp of adulthood, empowerment, loss and healing delivered with Tori’s trademark urgency and passion.”
