Alanis Morissette Returns To Australia For The First Time In 20 Years

The seven-time Grammy Award-winning alternative rock singer and songwriter Alanis Morissette is returning to Australia for the first time in almost 20 years, locking in two intimate dates this January 2018. Accompanied by an acoustic trio, she will be treating fans at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne to a night of nostalgic music. She will also be performing her greatest hits at the International Convention Centre in Sydney.

It's been almost 20 years since she whipped Australian stages with her fierce and emotive vocals. Alanis was last here on our shores in 1999 for her Junkie Tour in support of her fourth studio album 'Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie'. Dubbed as "Queen of alt-rock angst" by Rollingstone, her comeback will absolutely be one of the music highlights of next year.

Enjoying mediocre success in the early 1990s, Alanis finally shot to international fame with the release of her third studio album 'Jagged Little Pill' in 1995 via Maverick Records. It went on to sell more than 30 million copies across the globe, making it one of the biggest-selling albums of all time. 'Jagged Little Pill' spawned the global anthems 'You Oughta Know', 'Ironic' and 'Head over Feet'. The same album alone earned her four wins at the 38th Grammy Awards including Album Of The Year and Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for 'You Oughta Know'.

Alanis Morissette's emotive voice is one thing you dare not miss. Book your tickets now and hear an icon perform the songs that split a generation, live this 2018!
