That's the same password used in February for the March 31 show in Washington D.C. If you're looking for presale passwords for other cities, you might try the others used during the rest of that leg of the tour; they are "taste" "promise" "shadow" and "dream." Via Brooklyn Vegan.

Fiona Apple has just announced a North American tour in support of her upcoming album The Idler Wheel. She'll be in St. Louis at the Peabody Opera House on July 14 (The album's out on June 19). Tickets go on sale April 20 at 10 a.m.; prices have not yet been announced.
She's been on a tear lately. RFT Senior Music Writer Roy Kasten had this to say after seeing her at SXSW last month:
Finally inside Stubb's, after the longest lines I've seen outside the big outdoor venue since Metallica was in town, Fiona Apple was off to a late start. The space was filled, badge to wristband, for the singer's comeback inauguration and first appearance at SXSW. Once the sound was tweaked, she and her small band sounded fantastic, her songs full of the neat twists and turns you'd expect. The unguarded emotion and sweat poured off her. She has dance moves that put Thom Yorke to shame, and her new material, which dominated the set, was smart and catchy and surprisingly tight. The best show of a still-early week. Fiona is very much back.
There is plenty of corroboration available for that opinion. This should be a damn good 'un.
