Tori Amos shed a tear on stage at an ultra-intimate London show last night (December 2nd).  

The 46-year-old singer was playing a one-off free gig at the Jazz Café in Camden when the emotion clearly got too much - see the photos below.


In high spirits throughout, Tori even recounted a story about someone in the crowd whose mother she used to take drugs with.

She joked: “There's someone here whose mum I used to take ecstasy with, and I thought oh my god! Well I took something with her, somewhere it was legal - I'm in enough trouble with the British government already."

A stunning show from start to finish, Tori was resplendant with just her piano and also took time to thanks her fans for queuing in the pouring rain.

The set-list was dominated by tracks from her festive album 'Midwinter Graces' interspersed with old favourites.

Tori played:

Lady In Blue
Concertina
A Silent Night With You
Dragon
Doughnut Song
Ophelia
Josephine
Rattlesnakes
Jeanette, Isabella
Mrs Jesus
Beauty Of Speed
Father Luicfer
Star Of Wonder
London Girls
Pink & Glitter
