Alanis Morissette has officially cancelled her scheduled tour of Australia and New Zealand. The tour was set to take place at the end of this year as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for the ’90s icon’s signature album, Jagged Little Pill. Promoter Live Nation notified fans of the cancellation by sharing a message from Morissette.
“My friends in Australia and New Zealand, I am crestfallen to announce that the upcoming Jagged Little Pill anniversary tour dates have been cancelled,” Morissette said. “I love you all and will be back as soon as we can. Until then, big hug.”
Live Nation is committed to rescheduling the tour
Live Nation provided further context to the cancellation, saying that it was due to “scheduling issues” and the “unprecedented logistical challenges of global touring in 2022”. The promoter and Morissette’s management felt it best to refund the ticket holders now, but said they’re all “committed to rescheduling these dates at the earliest possible time.”
The cancelled tour comes at a time when Alanis Morrisette is experiencing a worldwide cultural renaissance. Courtesy of the Jagged Little Pill musical and the HBO documentary, Jagged, a new generation of music fans has latched onto the Canadian’s music. One of those fans is Olivia Rodrigo, who had an in-depth conversation with Morissette for Rolling Stone last year as part of their Musicians on Musicians series.
Rodrigo was also joined onstage by Morissette at a recent concert. The two performed a duet of ‘You Oughta Know’, the lead single from Jagged Little Pill. Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish have also noted the influence of Alanis Morissette on their careers, with Swift also fortunate enough to have performed a duet with Morissette on tour.
