It’s been 15 summers since the first, and only time, I’ve seen Alanis Morissette so you had better believe I’m pretty excited. She put on a spectacular show back then and I expect the same on Saturday night as she brings her “Intimate & Acoustic” show to Maine.
I just checked and there are still a few tickets left. The show is on Saturday night, August 23 at the Maine State Pier on Commercial Street in Portland. Ticket info
Can you believe that “Jagged Little Pill” is just shy of TWENTY YEARS old? Ironically (pun intended) it’s not my favorite Morissette album. I’m a fan of “Under Rug Swept” and “Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie” but I can’t wait to see and hear everything she and her two guitarists are going to throw at us on Saturday night.
You can read my review of the show next week in Maine Today Magazine in Thursday’s Press Herald and online at www.mainetoday.com
Here are 5 of my favorite Alanis songs. What are some of yours?
1. “Thank U”
2. “No Pressure Over Capucinno”
5. “Mercy” (this is from the 1999 compilation “The Prayer Cycle” by film & TV composer Jonathan Elias. She’s opened some shows with this lately. Stunning song.)
