Tori Amos made a cameo in Oakland last night for the third stop on her Sinful Attraction tour, and I was one of the many in attendance. It wasn't the first time I had seen her, but it had been a while. Let me tell you, Tori is still in fine form. Wonderfully weird in her redhair flips and piano-stool straddles, she wowed the crowd with her improvisations and Britney Spears covers. There's simply no denying this woman is talented.
Both last night's concert and the one I'd attended before rank high on my list of favorite concerts ever. I've also had amazing experiences with Garbage, Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Radiohead, to name a few.
Have you seen Tori before? Does she make your cut? What has been you favorite concert experience, and what made it so memorable?
