Quality of this YouTube clip is very poor (despite being official), <...>

video quality is very good so you must mean audio quality.

I meant both - don't know where you view it (and I don't wan't to go into an argument about it), but I downloaded it at the highest quality, and yes, sometimes it looks fine, but most of the time it looks like a poorly done upscale from SD - that's especially noticable when there's a lot of stage lighting in the frame: a lot of pixels and a lack of HD smoothness (videos from Conan, for example, look much better).

I like the 'ostrich' outfit, actually. It's more theatrical than the black top + black miniskirt that she wears for most of the gigs, so it suits the theatrical atmosphere of the tour more, IMO. (And yes, I sometimes miss the OTT headpieces and leather corset gowns of the LES tour.)

I also miss the LES costumes, but here's the thing - all of them were really stylish (especially headpieces: they were "over the top" in their own kind of way - like if the "The Fifth Element" was shot by Tim Burton or something).

But this particular "violet (or black) ostrich" one has some self-made "Uh Huh Her" vibes (and costumes from 2004 are either "hit or miss" for me), and the headpiece looks like something a children from kindergarten would wear on a carnival. The leather mini-skirt is also too drastic for television, but I really like her dress with a leather belt and long sleeves - it looks half ancient greek, half japanese to me, very elegant:


All aforementioned is only imho, of course.

I just noticed almost all the musicians were wearing the orange monkey pin, that was very cute!

I also just noticed something - they must have played at least a couple more songs for this audience after what we've seen (there's a red John Parish's drum on a stand behind them, and I think they only use it for "A Line In The Sand", "Working for the Man", and "A Perfect Day, Elise", which they, apparently, don't play anymore). Although it might be there only for entourage, just because it has an album painting on it.

They were hard to move about in, though, weren't they? The current ones give a bit more flexibility.

My impression exactly.

The way she was dancing to "Pocket Knife" begs to differ, I think. Plus, she was playing instruments.

Ah, fair enough. The concert I saw (Albert Hall I) she was virtually static throughout.

Maybe she'll do Conan or Jimmy Kimmel in May.

It looks like that's not going to happen:
