It seems like just yesterday that half the internet was fighting over whether Alanis Morissette’s Grammy-winning, best-selling 1995 album Jagged Little Pill was good or not. (With all due respect to the discourse: It’s good.)
Now, in a definitive win for the “Jagged Little Pill is good” camp, Morissette will be taking the album on tour for its 25th anniversary, revisiting era-defining songs like “Ironic,” “You Oughta Know,” and “You Learn.” Morissette will be joined on tour by Garbage and Liz Phair, in a confluence of mid-to-late-’90s perfection that can only be accompanied by oversized velvet Dr. Martens and crying to a cassette tape alone in a bedroom because nobody understands you.
The tour, which will begin June 2020 in Portland, Oregon, comes on the heels of the Broadway musical of the same name. The musical is directed by Waitress director Diane Paulus, with story contributed by Juno writer Diablo Cody, who weaves the album’s songs with the story of a family working through complicated issues. “It’s not a typical jukebox musical,” Cody told Vogue. “The songs are telling a real story; they’re not shoehorned into some other narrative.”
Morissette’s summer tour will encompass 31 stops, including one in the singer’s native Canada. Presale tickets for the tour will begin on December 10, with general public sales beginning December 13. If you’re hoping to snag tickets, it’s probably best to set an alarm: Everyone who’s ever scream-sung along to Hand in My Pocket at karaoke will likely be trying to do the same.
