LIVE FROM THE ARTISTS DEN showcases stellar musical performances in extraordinary settings. Filmed in high definition, each episode features an intimate, invitation-only concert by cutting-edge musicians. The innovative series breaks away from the confines of the conventional studio set by unveiling a new, unexpected venue in every episode. The musicians often play a role in picking the stage for these memorable events, which frequently inspire new renditions of songs and special set lists.
Tori Amos is one of the most influential and respected artists of the modern era. The double-digit Grammy nominee has recorded 11 acclaimed studio albums (and gone platinum nearly 20 times) since emerging in the early '90s. She released two new CDs in 2009: "Abnormally Attracted to Sin" and her first seasonal project, "Midwinter Graces."
The Veterans Room of New York City's Park Avenue Armory set the stage for a private concert by Tori Amos for 100 lucky fans. Described as "Greek, Moresque, and Celtic with a dash of the Egyptian, the Persian, and the Japanese," the room provided a fitting setting for one of the most eclectic and culturally curious artists in music today. Amos performed a career-spanning set featuring classics from her debut "Little Earthquakes" through to "Abnormally Attracted to Sin."
