Tori Amos - Scarlet's Walk Tour, Hamburg 23.-24. Jan 2003
"A Sorta Fairytale"

After a long night at SoWhat I finally found my way home and went to bed two hours before I had to get up again and meet Truls and Stine downtown Oslo. We had a flight to catch. We took the train to the airport and started our little "Tori Amos Concert" - trip to Hamburg in Germany
First we had to take a flight to Copenhagen, where we had a short wait and then further on to Hamburg. With Stine as our German interpreter we caught ourselves a taxi at the airport and headed for the Radisson SAS hotel in Hamburg where a nice (and again thanks to Stine) hotel room was awaiting us.
The concert was held in a conference center that was connected to the hotel, so we spent the hours before the concert shopping a little bit, eating and then just trying to relax at the room.
A hot shower, make-up done and one drink down we were set go. We took the elevator down, walked through a little bar and into the conference center/fair area. The lounge area was filled with people who waited excited for the doors to open. Among those people where Püffi, who had bought a ticket to join us.
Truls, Stine and me had seats next to eachother, but Püffi was originally seated quite a bit away from us. Now that solved itself when the whole row behind us was empty through the entire concert. We placed ourselves, got a beer and waited....And suddenly - there she was :)

I am not joking when I say that I probably had tears in my eyes and major goosebumps from the first minute of the concert to the last.

She started the concert with a few tracks from the new album " Scarlet's Walk" and I simply knew that this was gonna be the best concert I'd ever been to.
The sound in the concert hall was really great, and we had seats almost in the middle of the hall, up on a gallery with a pretty good view. In front of us we even had some Norwegians (that I later got to know one of them is another story..but talk about coincidence!!!).
Nine songs into the concert the musicians leave the stage and only Tori is left with the piano. A sign - "Roadside Cafe" - comes into view and she does three songs in this setting. Among them "Jackie's Strenght" which is one of my favorites from the "choirgirl hotel" album.
The band returned and the concert continued with a parade of totally wonderful song. Some new, some old and some simply all-time classics that are bound to make you cry.
I had Stine next to me - shaking in her seat and holding my hand. When Tori did "Cornflake Girl" and "Precious Things" I was stunned. When the sound of "I Can't See New York" along with a lightshow that painted clouds and flames on the ceiling filled the room, I couldn't hold the tears back either.
It was just too damn sad, beautiful and magical.
During the concert I was keeping an eye on Truls, a bit worried that my dear metal-junkie-friend was bored to death by pianos and a woman in a fluttering green dress.
No worries. He was at the front of the seat staring with awe at the little songbird in front of us.
After "Iieee" the concert was supposedly over, but we all knew there would be more. Shortly after the band returned and did the first encore including "Taxi Ride" and "Tear In Your Hand"
Another break, and then the second and last encore; A mindblowing version of "Space Dog" and beautifully performed "Hey Jupiter". I had to call my bestfriend Stig so he could hear it over the phone. That's just one of those moments you really want to share with someone.
And then it was over... We were sitting for a while in our seats before we slowly moved out to the lounge area...and then finally I walked those heavy steps away from the conference center and back to the hotel room. Püffi had promised us a nightlife tour in Hamburg, so we freshened up and went for a ride.....
