The Little Earthquakes Tour was the debut concert tour by Tori Amos. Tori toured in support of her 1992 debut solo album Little Earthquakes.


During the tour, Tori performed on either concert pianos or her own Yamaha CP-80 keyboard.

While limited show information exists for the Little Earthquakes Tour, the first documented concert took place at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland on July 3, 1991, and the last documented appearance was in Auckland, New Zealand on November 30, 1992.


As with almost all of Tori's subsequent tours, the Little Earthquakes Tour had no fixed setlist. Tori played songs and B-sides from Little Earthquakes, as well as several previously unrecorded covers. These included a medley of "Whole Lotta Love" and "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin, "Imagine" by John Lennon, "Sentimental Journey", and "A Case of You" by Joni Mitchell, which was later recorded as a B-side for Under the Pink,

Tori also performed an unreleased a cappella song called "Numbness" as the opening song on several dates.
