Amos kicked off her 45-minute set with 'Lady In Blue,' a new tune off her May 19-due album, 'Abnormally Attracted to Sin." In fact, she would debut three new songs, with 'Curtain Call' and 'Mary Jane' rounding out the trifecta. 'Mary Jane,' Amos admitted, was a true story about a teenage boy who asked his mother if he could spend the weekend with, well, Mary Jane. His mother, who was leaving town, thought it as a birds and bees moment. Turns out, dude just wanted weed.
The performance was Amos' first since 2007, and jumpstarted the promotional throes for 'Abnormally Attracted to Sin,' but Amos was sure to dish out some vintage favorites. Among them: 'Crucify,' 'Silent All These Years' and 'Take to the Sky,' during which she added a little bit of Carole King's 'I Feel the Earth Move' for good measure. But it was the last line that Amos belted of the night that served as both assurance and a warning for things to come: "She has risen."
