NPR MUSIC PRESENTS AND BROADCASTS TORI AMOS LIVE IN CONCERT, OCTOBER 5, 7:30PM (ET) AT (LE) POISSON ROUGE

NYC AREA FANS CAN WIN LIMITED FREE TICKETS FOR PRIVATE EVENT VIA TORI AMOS' FACEBOOK & WFUV

NEW ALBUM 'GOLD DUST' OUT OCTOBER 2

NPR Music will present and broadcast a concert by iconic artist Tori Amos, Friday, October 5 beginning at 7:30PM (ET) in the intimate New York City venue (Le) Poisson Rouge. The entire show will be available for live streaming at NPR.org/music and in the NPR Music mobile apps, and archived after the show: www.npr.org/event/music/161764543/npr-music-presents-tori-amos-in-concert

Fans planning to be in the New York City area on the date of the show have the opportunity to attend the event. Free tickets to this rare performance will be given away on Tori Amos' website (www.toriamos.com/lepoissonrouge), and by NPR Member Station WFUV (follow @WFUV on Twitter for details). There will be no tickets sold for this event.

Amos' forthcoming album, Gold Dust, out October 2 via Deutsche Grammophon, commemorates her 20-year career since the release of her debut Little Earthquakes by re-imagining a personally handpicked collection of songs from her catalogue in an orchestral setting, which Amos recorded with the Metropole Orchestra. This exclusive live performance from NPR Music will feature Amos playing songs spanning her entire catalogue. As Amos has no plans to tour the U.S. this year, this NPR Music concert is a rare opportunity to see her perform. NPR Music's Ann Powers hosts the event; Powers and Amos collaborated on the musician's biography Piece by Piece.
