Tori Amos Wants Your Attention, Or Else She’ll Kick You The Fuck Out

Tori’s that rare performer that’s been known to whip out a gun just to capture your imagination. But if you’re sitting up close and she sees you disengaged from the show? Fuck the gun, she’ll just kick your ass out. Via Dlisted:

[Wednesday] night [12/12] at her San Diego show, Tori Amos showed two girls that she doesn’t mess around. Two girls were seated in the front row and I guess they kept coming and going as they pleased. While playing “Code Red”, Tori stopped halfway through and told the girls “Get the fuck out of my show! It’s a privilege to sit in the front row and I reserve those seats for people who appreciate music, get the fuck out!” A dude then came out and escorted the chicks from the front row.

Check it at around 2:25.

Don’t act like you’re surprised. Everybody knows Tori’s got a 12 inch cock.

UPDATE: And now a report that fleshes out Tori’s side of things a bit…


Next up was Code Red. Now, there were two girls who were front row center. They’d been getting up to get drinks every few songs, texting people, putting their cameras on the stage and taking pictures of Tori, as well as snapping pics of each other and just generally talking really loudly. I spoke to one of them during the Professional Widow interlude, and she mentioned her friend was a fan and she was along for the ride. The girls seemed nice but also probably should not have been front row center if they were going to eff off like that. I was worried something bad was going to happen after one of them tried to yell over to me during Virginia. Maybe she was trying to ask what song it was or something, I’m not sure. Tori noticed this girl was being loud and she looked like she was about to say something, but bit her tongue. The girls kept talking, and one went up to get a drink. Then she came back before the start of Code Red, and I could tell Tori was distracted and pissed. They kept on snapping pictures of each other and yapping loudly, so finally Tori stopped Code Red and told one of the girls to get the fuck out of her show. Then she got up and basically charged the front row and pointed to her. It was surreal and frightening. Then she went back to the mic and said something along the lines of, “Sitting in the front row is a privilege. Those are my seats and I give them to people who like music.” Smitty ran down and lead one of the girls out. Then Tori looked at the other girl and said (not into the mic but just right to her face): Are you with her? You can get the fuck out,too.” It was definitely the angriest I have ever seen her at a show. Ever. She started Code Red over again and snarled her way through it. Then she came back and growled through Precious Things, Space Dog, and Bliss. As my Nana would say, she was madder than a wet hen!

Thanks for the link to that, Iskra. Girls probably had it coming. Imagine what would have happened if they’d requested “Summer of ’69.”
