Time Out says

The Canadian superstar is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill

There are some albums that become the soundtrack for certain chapters of your life, helping you navigate your highs and lows and everything in between. For many of us, Jagged Little Pill is at the top of the list.

Alanis Morissette's 1995 breakthrough album, released when she was just 20 years old, is a moody masterpiece of angst, melding alternative rock with a pop sensibility, and it produced hits including 'Hand in My Pocket', 'Ironic', 'You Learn', 'Head Over Feet' and the unstoppable 'You Oughta Know'. Late last year, the album was even turned into a Broadway musical.

Twenty-five years later, Morissette is going back to her roots and will be performing the album (alongside songs from the rest of her career) on a celebratory world tour, which stops into Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on April 14 and 15 with special guest Julia Stone. She's also playing Sydney, Perth and Bluesfest Byron Bay. 

Morissette was last in Australia in 2018 for a series of intimate acoustic gigs, which we described as "a '90s singalong dream". We're pretty excited to finally see her let loose with a full band.

The April 15 show is sold out but tickets for the added April 14 show go on sale at noon on Friday, February 21.
