When a musician plays at Winspear Opera House, the concert takes on a sheen of class. Tori Amos comes to Dallas on July 29, 2014, as part of her Unrepentant Geraldines tour, and she'll grace the same stage that has seen the likes of Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr. and Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.
The North American leg of the tour starts July 16 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and hits 28 cities, including Austin on July 30. The tour is named after Amos' 14th album, which is scheduled to be released May 12.
Amos' last couple of albums, Night of Hunters and Gold Dust, delved deeply into classical music, making her a good fit for a venue that normally houses opera, theater and other arts. In fact, the last time she came to Dallas, at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie in 2011, it was with her Night of Hunters tour that prominently featured a string quartet.
Unrepentant Geraldines, though, is said to be a return to Amos' pop rock roots for which she became famous in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Tickets for the Dallas date officially go on sale Friday, March 7, but anyone who pre-orders her new album will receive a special code that gives them access to a March 4 pre-sale.
