Canadian-born singer Alanis Morissette is heading back out on the road next year for a “Jagged Little Pill” anniversary tour. The 31-date tour will take her, as well as Liz Phair and Garbage, all over North America.
Morissette will hold her first show in Portland, Oregon on June 2, 2020. Her and her entourage will also hit major cities including Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and Toronto. The tour will then finish off on July 25 in Nashville. See the full schedule here.
Presale tickets will be available on Dec. 10, and then the tickets for the general public will be available on Dec. 13. According to Variety, fans who purchase tickets will also receive an instant download of Morissette’s new song “Reasons I Drink.” They will also receive a digital download of Morissette’s new album “Such Pretty Forks in the Road,” which hits shelves May 1, 2020. This new album will come out eight years after Morissette’s last album “Havoc and Bright Lights.”
The “Jagged Little Pill” Legacy
Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill” album came out in 1995 and is one of the top selling records of all time. According to Rolling Stone, it has sold over 33 million copies. Morissette also earned Album of the Year at the Grammys for it in 1996.
The album was so big that it’s now turned into a Broadway musical. The show premiered in Cambridge, Mass. in May 2018 and ended in July 2018. Then in January 2019, it was announced that the show would be coming to Broadway. It begins on Dec. 5 and runs until July 2020. You can purchase tickets here.
The play follows the story of the Healy family. Though the family appears to be picture perfect, each of them is harboring a secret. The mom is addicted to pain pills while the kids are struggling to figure out who they are. Popular songs such as “Ironic” and “Thank U” are scattered throughout the musical to go along with the theme of pain, as well as healing.
Critics seemed to enjoy the Cambridge production, but we will have to wait and see if it does as well on Broadway.
“And yet, ‘Jagged Little Pill’ is ultimately a success, in large part because it wears its ambition on its sleeve,” BuzzFeed News reporter Louis Peitzman said about the musical. ”Because while ‘Jagged Little Pill’ may not be perfect, it’s just chaotic enough to capture what it feels like to be living through our current moment.”
