Facebook reminded me that this amazing experience happened almost ten years ago.
As those "in the know" know (I apologize; that could have been worded much, much better), Tori Amos greets her fans before her soundcheck at every show. So, if you know this, then you know to go wait at soundcheck. Luckily, I have friends "in the know" who filled me in and I was able to meet the Queen herself. Lovely person!
