Alanis Morissette brings back 90s alternative-pop nostalgia with PH concert almost 30 years in the making

Canadian-American singer and songwriter Alanis Morissette recently held her two-day concert in Manila last August 1 and 2 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena as part of the 28th-year celebration of her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill.

Starting the night’s festivities is Filipino actor and musician Ice Seguerra, who performed several Filipino classic hit songs including “Pagdating Ng Panahon,” “Bilanggo,” “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” and “Come Together.”

The Grammy and Juno awardee wasted no time diving head on into memory lane, opening the concert by playing the opening tune of her song “All I Really Want” from her album Jagged Little Pill with her harmonica and continued to thread from that memory lane by performing songs from the same album including “Hands in my Pocket,” “You Learn,” “Mary Jane,” “Perfect,” and “Head Over Feet.”

It wouldn’t be a full Alanis experience without a little bit of angst, she also performed her hit songs “Ironic” and “You Oughta Know,” which brought excitement to the audience.

Alanis sang a total of 19 songs of pure celebration towards her journey as a singer, which ended with an encore of her song “Uninvited” before bidding farewell with “Thank U.”

This marks the 49-year-old singer’s return to the country, almost 30 years after she performed in the country for her Can’t Not Tour Manila in 1996 – her concert was initially scheduled last April 2020 in celebration of the 25th year of Jagged Little Pill but was rescheduled many times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alanis became prominent in 1995 for her studio album Jagged Little Pill, featuring her hit songs “You Oughta Know” and “Ironic,” which gained her much recognition for her singing and songwriting skills.
