Tori Amos is no stranger to the Royal Albert Hall. Since she first played here in 1996, she came back many times throughout her ever-changing career and many incarnations.

Over the years, she walked onto the Hall’s stage with a band, an orchestra, and even just her trusted piano. The Hall is her favourite place to play (even though she apparently had her worst rehearsal ever within these walls!).

We had a little chat with Tori to learn more about that, her many experiences at the Hall, and how she is part of the great history being written here. Things got a little emotional when she spoke about her mother and her family, as you would expect from someone conveying such raw emotion in their music.

Watch here as she reflects on the special place the Hall holds in her life:


2021 will see the Royal Albert Hall turn 150 years old, and to celebrate we’re planning a whole series of events and activities to celebrate our past, present and future.

As we prepare for this special birthday we want to hear from as many of you as possible who have been part of our first 150 years. Whether you’ve performed here like Tori, visited here or even watched us on the television, we want to know your memories and what the Hall means to you.

Please share what you can via our online form, or on Twitter or Instagram using #RAH150 to help us piece together just what this special building means to the world.
