The Kate Bush-alike singer Tori Amos will be taking her latest album "Gold Dust" on the road in an orchestral tour. The songs will all be reworked in a classical setting, alongside the Metropole Orchestra. This follows on from her classically-inspired 12th album, "Night of the Hunter", which Amos performed at the Royal Albert Hall last year.
The terracota-coloured Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s favourite concert venues. Whilst it remains most famous for classical music and the annual Prom concerts, it also holds rock and pop concerts, sports events and award ceremonies.
