The Manila stop of Alanis Morissette’s 2020 World Tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of her best-selling album “Jagged Little Pill” will now have two dates, April 6 and 7, 2020 at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena, the concert’s promoter, Ovation Productions, confirmed to the Inquirer.
Ovation boss Renen de Guia said that the additional date, April 7, was due to public clamor after tickets to the April 6 date quickly sold out.
The tour’s setlist is expected to feature songs from “Jagged Little Pill,” originally released on June 13, 1995 and which dominated the 1996 Grammys, taking home four awards – Album of the Year, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Female Performance (“You Oughta Know”), and Best Rock Song (“You Oughta Know”).
“Jagged Little Pill,” which sold 33 million copies, was largely successful because it struck an emotional chord especially among young women in the 1990s, the decade of grunge and alternative rock that recalled the anger and rebellion of punk in the mid-’70s.
On December 5, 2019, the rock musical “Jagged Little Pill” opened on Broadway.
Directly inspired by the album, its book written by Diablo Cod with additional music by Michael Farrell and Guy Sigsworth, the musical is earning praise for its straightforward look at current, real-life situations.
Alanis recently announced that her first studio album in eight years, “Such Pretty Forks in the Road, will be released on May 1, 2020.
Its first single, “Reasons I Drink,” was released Dec. 2, 2019.
Advance ticket sales for the MOA Arena concert is on Feb. 29, 2020, after the concert’s sponsor Globe Telecom holds its exclusive ticket sales for subscribers on Feb. 28, 2020.
