Is the title of the tour "Tour of Earthly Delights" yet again? We puzzle over the new title of the world tour. Shoshanna Stone wrote in her tweet about the "Tour of Earthly Delights" today. Maybe a mistake by her. She doesn't work for LN.
Also, why have we not seen any promo imagery used from the painting that inspired the tour name yet?
When the name of the tour was first released along with the painting and artists name I remembered that I had seen some posters from old albums - including one by Bosch.
Couldn't recall the details, so after a search I found that Deep Purple had used part of the painting from the right panel.
Surprised to see that the album had distribution problems in the US, because of it's cover, way back then in 1969.
Tetragrammaton ran into difficulty over the use of the Museo del Prado-owned Hieronymus Bosch painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights" which was incorrectly perceived as being anti-religious in the US and thus rejected or poorly stocked by many record shops. The original painting is in colour although it appears in monochrome here due to a printing error for the original layout and the band opted to keep it that way
We know that Shakira is not afraid to use a controversial image (on a CD cover) and I would guess she would know about Deep Purple so I am really curious to see if any of the Bosch is used on the new posters and the confusion over the tour name resolved.
We should know soon?
From the El Periodical 20th Aug
La presentación oficial de la próxima gira mundial de Shakira, El tour de las delicias, que comenzará el 15 de septiembre en Montreal y el 24 de noviembre pasará por Barcelona, debía realizarse inicialmente a finales de este mes de agosto, también, en el Hotel W. Sin embargo, el acto ha sido pospuesto hasta el mes de septiembre y, si no hay cambios de última hora, la capital catalana seguirá siendo el lugar en el que se desvelarán los detalles de la gira.
Main info roughly is that the official presentation of the World Tour was due at the end of August at the Hotel W but has been postponed to September, still in Barcelona.http://www.elperiodi...na/443421.shtml
