Tori Amos Readies Club Tour, New Album

Amos will launch her tour, her first-ever with a full backing band, on April 18 in Miami and will hit several big cities before winding up in Los Angeles.

She plans to follow the club tour with a larger scale tour closer to the release of her next album, "Confessionings of a Choir Girl," which arrives in May. The album will be Amos' first since 1996's "Boys For Pele."

Note: As of 2/19/98 the album title has been changed to "From The Choirgirl Hotel."
