Tori Amos Lines Up Strange North American Tour

Tour kicks off 10 days after new album is released.

Tori Amos is bringing her Strange Little Girls to U.S. theaters this fall, though she'll be all alone onstage.

The singer/songwriter/pianist is returning to performing without a backing band for the 29-show trek, which kicks off September 28 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The tour will concentrate on the East Coast until mid-October and then head West, with Rufus Wainwright opening the first month of shows. It is scheduled to wind down in San Diego on November 20.

Amos will warm up for the outing with an August 30 show at Union Chapel in London.

On Strange Little Girls, Amos examines sexual politics and identity by covering 12 songs written by men. The album, due September 18, features her takes on songs by Eminem, the Velvet Underground, the Beatles, Neil Young, Slayer, Depeche Mode and the Boomtown Rats (see "Tori Amos Covers Eminem, Slayer on Strange Little Girls").
