On 4/27/12 at 9:59am, I got super lucky when I managed to snag a pair of tickets to see Fiona Apple at The Hollywood Palladium on 7/29/12 because, as expected, the show sold out in a matter of minutes. My roommate, Stephanie, immediately claimed my 2nd ticket then we proceeded to spend 3 months eagerly awaiting our 1st Fiona show ever.
Fiona Apple's 4th studio album was released on 6/19/12 (7 years after her last album, Extraordinary Machine, was released in 2005) & I believe it broke some sort of record for being 1 of the longest album titles ever. It is called The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. To keep it simple, most people just refer to it as The Idler Wheel...
I'm not exactly sure why Fiona took 7 years off but, after witnessing her inspirational performance on Sunday night, it doesn't seem like the time off has weakened her game in the least bit. She's the tiniest woman with THE biggest voice. She's also an incredible pianist. She even motivated me to go home & play a few songs from her 1st studio album Tidal on my 72-key weighted Roland keyboard. I'm no Fiona:-P
If you missed Fiona's Palladium show, I must insist you do everything in your power to see her in October at The Greek Theatre in LA. She's unreal live.
