Berit will be part of the band at the Oyster tour in autumn 2017!

The last time she was on stage together with Heather was in 2012.

Wow, 5 years already. Clearly, they need to practice. Berit should come with Heather and Mishka on the Spring tour to warm up.

I am assuming Arnulf Lindner will be on the Oyster tour as well, along with a drummer. No idea if he will be on the tour with Mishka. I'd guess so.

I wonder which songs Heather will play at that tour.
Of course, Oyster!
Including Sugar (not on first European release), we have 12 songs on that album.

But I hope she will play more than 12 songs. Will she add some classics from later albums as well, like Like Lovers Do, or some recent songs, or will she add only songs from Oyster era or earlier, like I'm On Fire, Blessed, Spirit In You?

I think this was her repertoire back in 1996:
- These Walls EP
- album Glow Stars
- album Oyster incl. Sugar

- Blessed
- Home*
- Blind*
- Like A Hurricane (Neil Young)
- I'm On Fire (Bruce Springsteen)
- I Have The Touch* (Peter Gabriel)
- Believe In Angels* (written with Graeme Revell)
- Heart And Shoulder (first performed in 1996)

* I doubt that was ever played live.

Did I miss anything?

What do you guess?

if she's to make on Oyster show (and i'm so glad of it !), I assume she perfectly knows we crave for old songs. So, I'll be optimistic and picture she'll play some Glow Stars songs and maybe Blessed, and songs she used to cover then.

VIP passes available for Europe in fall 2017!

In comparison to the USA VIP passes no soundcheck, but still early entry, and including handwritten lyric.

99 euros, but the handwritten/painted lyric sheet sounds nice!

Up to four lines or 250 characters!

I recommend this complete song:

ALL THE WAY

When birds fly, they navigate by stars, these nights the walls come down, these nights are ours
This love is life, I want to stay, I'll be beside you all the way
All the way, all the way, all the way, all the way, all the way, all the way


has just three lines (four including title) and in total only 248 characters!

Too bad this wasn't possible ten years ago, if it had been, Cass would have chosen Drive Away!

Heather on Facebook today:

So looking forward to my OYSTER tour in the Fall. Many of you have asked why Iím not playing in other cities. The truth is that I would LOVE to go EVERYWHERE with this tour, but the reality is that touring with a full band and crew costs a lot of money every day, so unless I get offers that cover my expenses I simply canít afford to play there. But keep up the buzz and with any luck more dates might be added! Just know itís not personal if I donít come to your town/country.

I guess for a concert in Vienna Iíll have to wait until the next record. As far as I remember Heather only played in Austria when she had a new album to be released/out. It seems thatís the only chance she gets booked here which is a pity. Promoters are obviously not optimistic enough Heather could fill a (at least small) concert hall without a new record which I think she would do nonetheless.

Indeed, the only Heather concerts in Austria within the last 10 years:

19.10.2008 Vienna (Gasometer) -> The Jasmine Flower in 2008
21.8.2009 St. PŲlten (Frequency Festival)
24.11.2011 Vienna (WUK) -> 300 Days At Sea release in 2011
21.7.2012 Sittersdorf (Acoustic Lakeside Festival)
25.2.2016 Vienna (SiMM City) -> The Way It Feels release in 2015

So yes, only ne concert (always Vienna) for each record, plus two festivals.

By the way, are there anti-smoking laws in Austria in the meanwhile? I saw concerts in Austria in 2006 and 2008, and the smoke was simply terrible at both concerts. So I never went to Austria for a concert since then.

Maybe this is also an important fact here, because I know Heather hates it when people smoke at her concerts, she worries it may be a problem for her voice and health. I was once at a Heather concert which was almost cancelled after 30 minutes because of so many people smoking and she got no clean air.

That confirms something I've wondered about in terms of not bringing a band with her to the U.S. Guess that's never gonna happen, as much as I'd love to see Berit again.

I'm sorry for getting off-topic now, but... yeah, I know what you mean! That spoiled almost every concert I went to in the past, sometimes my eyes were even burning so I could hardly keep them open and always coming home smelling like an ashtray. Disgusting.

I understand Heather and other artists who have to play in smoke-filled locations very well. I remember some time ago AgnŤs Milewski asked her fans by social media if they had a problem with no-smoking because she even got sick and had problems with her stomach even 1 or 2 days after a concert.
While my first Tori concert in 2003 in the Gasometer there was a big no-smoking sign right before me on the balcony and 3 or 4 women next to me were smoking. And the security didnít care about it, of course. (But I was not allowed to take my camera within the hall and had to pay a keeping fee otherwise they wouldnít have let me inÖ)

It has fortunately improved during the last concerts Iíve been to.

In 2012 when Melissa Etheridge played in the Gasometer I couldnít smell anything in the concert hall but the foyer was filled with smoke. Havenít been to this location since then.
In the WUK in 2011 when Heather played there was a smoking prohibition as well in and outside the hall but I could smell some smoke during the concert though it wasnít that intense.
But e.g. in the quite newly built Stadthalle F where Tori played the last times (2007, 2009 and 2011) there has been a strict smoking prohibition in the hall and the foyer right from the beginning which were the first concerts for me without getting nicotine polluted.
And fortunately in the SIMM City last February there was no-smoking in the hall and foyer either.

After all those half-hearted anti-smoking-laws here in Austria during the last years I guess there has been a noticeable change lately. In no other European country it has been that hard to enforce that which is really a shame.

I consider to go for one VIP option. I just don't know which 4 lines to choose from Oyster. Maybe I should try with 4 lines from Glow Stars.

I can't believe I'm finally seeing her live after 10 years waiting! And this Oyster Tour thing is just too much. I'm not sure I will survive the combo Light Years + Verona.

I'm just a little nervous because I can't decide right now what dates to attend. I'm traveling from Brazil basically just to see her. There's a friend who's interested too, but he's waiting for Tori Amos to get out from under her rock and announce her tour dates. He's hoping her dates will match Heather's dates. Since I want him to come with me and I also want to see Tori again, I'm hoping for that too. But my top priority is Heather, so I think I will wait just a few more weeks to buy the tickets.

That would be indeed fantastic to enjoy concerts of both ladies in a short time, I wish for you and your friend!

I'm happy for you Pedro you finally will see Heather! Well you need to survive to join more concerts than just one!

Be adviced, you will get addicted once you join a concert. Heather Nova concerts are like a drug you cannot escape. The only drug so in this world that is good for your health!

Tori did a really crazy thing with her tour dates, so I'll have to see Heather on my own. At first I thought of attending the German concerts because it's more affordable to go from Brazil to Europe arriving in Frankfurt. Then I learned that there isn't the e-ticket option for those dates. So I changed my plans and purchased the tickets for Nijmegen and Amsterdam. I'm also considering Heerlen but first I have to check if I can fit it on my schedule, since I'd like to do some sightseeing haha. And off course I will get one VIP upgrade, I'm just not sure which one yet.

The concert in the Paradiso (Amsterdam) is sold out. VIP upgrades as well there. Got one early luckily. Paradiso is my favourite concert hall in the Netherlands.

I think Heather music is only for people who are into music and love music. Our young people do not really listen to music. They just want to have fun! (Cindy, i know that are your words).
My 20 year old niece really like "love wins" when i sent her the link. Anyway this is not played on radio or so.
When she drove me home from a wedding, she could sing along to pretty much every simple silly, dull or whaterver song. I think she even nows a lot Spice Girls songs, not really her age, maybe i am wrong.I doubt she knows the lyrics of any songs from Heather.
