There's no doubt that Jagged Little Pill was one of the most popular and significant albums of the 1990s, and it's turning 25 in 2020 (can you believe it??)
Alanis Morissette knows, and she's celebrating the album's anniversary with a new 2020 tour to commemorate the album and new material she has coming out. Yes, Alanis has a new song, which she will perform tonight (December 2nd) at The Apollo Theater in New York City. She will also has a new album, called Pretty Little Forks in the Road which will be released officially on May 1st. It will be her ninth studio album; her most recent was 2012's Havoc and Bright Lights.
The Jagged Little Pill 25th Anniversary Tour's announcement comes as a new musical based on the Jagged album hits Broadway. The show opens at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York Thursday, one day after she'll be appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, where she'll perform her new song "Reasons I Drink."
Meanwhile, Jagged Little Pill continues to be her seminal album. After 25 years, it still stands as the best-selling international debut album of all time; it hit #1 on the charts in 13 countries and sold over 33 million copies worldwide. It remains one of the top 20 best-selling albums of all time.
Morissette and her collaborator Glen Ballard also won five Grammy awards for the album, including the Album of the Year for 1995. She was just 21 years old at the time, which made her the youngest artist in history to ever win the honor (Taylor Swift broke that record with her Fearless album in 2008 at age 19.)
2020 will be a busy year for Morissette with this tour; it currently features 31 stops and none of them - yet - are in Wisconsin. Here are the announced dates:
Presale tickets for Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill 25th Anniversary Tour will kick off next Tuesday, December 10th, at 10am our time; general on-sale tickets will be available Friday, December 13th at 10am.
