What a line up! 90s nostalgia has officially hit full throttle with the latest news that Alanis Morissette is plotting a monster tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her 1995 smash hit album, Jagged Little Pill, joined by fellow alt-rock royals Garbage and Liz Phair.
So far, Morissette has only announced a set of US dates that will kick off June 2nd in Portland, Oregon, and will run through July 25th with a final show in Nashville, Tennessee, hitting many of the same venues that she played on her initial Jagged Little Pill run 25 years ago. The tour will see Morissette play her career-defining record in full, as well as a bunch of fan favourite cuts from her back catalogue on the 31-date run.
Alanis Morissette | “You Oughta Know”
When Jagged Little Pill was first released in 1995, it quickly became a runaway success when LA’s famed KROQ-FM picked up the album’s scathing first single, "You Oughta Know" – a song that commanded instant attention for its explicit and sharp-witted lyrics; factors that also led the the accompanying music video hitting heavy rotation on MTV. The album sold more than 33 million copies around the world and ranks as one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Garbage's massive, multi-platinum selling, self-titled debut album will also be celebrating its 25th anniversary in August of next year. For anyone who loves their angsty 90s rock as much as I do, your heart probably aches just thinking about this dream tour. Let’s hope and pray to the alt-rock gods that the announcement of an Aussie leg is just around the corner!
