It’s hard to believe that Alanis Morissette’s generation-defining album Jagged Little Pill will be 25 years old this June, but then again I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the Blues don’t play at The Arena anymore. To celebrate the album that sold over 16 million units in the US alone Morissette will be embarking on a 31-city major summer tour.

The tour will begin in Portland, OR on June 2 and wrap up July 25 in Nashville, TN.

Morissette will make a stop in Saint Louis on July 18 for only the 7th time overall, and the first since a 2005 stop at the Fabulous Fox. This time she will perform at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, where she has performed twice before. The show will undoubtedly sell out.

Tickets to the general public go on sale this coming Friday, but there is a presale for Citi cardmembers. Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase U.S. presale tickets beginning Wednesday, December 11th at 11 AM local time until Thursday, December 12th at 12 PM local time through Citi’s Entertainment program. For complete presale details visit www.citientertainment.com.

Alanis also released her new song, “Reasons I Drink” today via Epiphany Music. Get it here! “Reasons I Drink” was co-written by Alanis and Michael Farrell (Morrissey, Macy Gray) and produced by Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Ben Platt, Tove Lo). The track comes off Alanis’ highly anticipated ninth album, SUCH PRETTY FORKS IN THE ROAD, due out May 1st. This will be Alanis’ first original album since 2012’s HAVOC AND BRIGHT LIGHTS. On December 4th, she debuted the song with a television performance of “Reasons I Drink” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Alanis is also being honored with the 2019 Billboard Women In Music Icon Award at their ceremony on December 12th in Los Angeles.

JAGGED LITTLE PILL made its debut on Broadway this past Thursday, December 5th at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City. Featuring lyrics by Alanis and music by Alanis and six-time Grammy winner Glen Ballard, JAGGED LITTLE PILL is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin) and features an original story by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). JAGGED LITTLE PILL is a breathtaking new musical inspired by the themes and emotions revealed in Alanis Morissette’s album of the same name. Variety notes “[a]lways engaging, often moving and even rousing, the show boasts dramatic interest and integrity on its own theatrical terms.” For tickets, please visit telecharge.com.

Alanis will be joined by special guest Garbage and also appearing Liz Phair. Again, presales for the tour will begin on December 10 at 11 AM local time and tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, December 13th at 11 AM local time at LiveNation.com. VIP packages will be available starting with the presale. With each transaction, fans will receive an instant grat download of “Reasons I Drink” and a digital download of Alanis’ new album SUCH PRETTY FORKS IN THE ROAD, upon its release on May 1st.

I was there the first show Alanis played in Saint Louis, at Mississippi Nights on September 1, 1995, just after ‘You Ought to Know” blew up around the country. She had already been booked into the tiny venue and was the one and only time we got to see her in a cozy environment. I was planning on posting these in a 25th year anniversary peer into the vault, but this seems like a place to post.

She blew the roof off the brick building that night and we all knew she was destined for huge things. Chances are she will do the same come July 18. Don’t keep your Hand in (Your) Pocket by not getting tickets for this show, you will surely be regretting it for a long time.
