With contagious energy and the smile of a child ready to share a secret, Alanis Morissette bounds back and forth across the stage, carelessly letting her long brown hair fall wherever it wants to fall. Backed by a five-piece band, the Canadian singer-songwriter fills a nearly two-hour set with a balancing act of older hits and lesser-known tracks, including new tunes from her 2012 release, Havoc and Bright Lights. Her first studio album in four years, the fresh collection of songs exudes a quiet bliss that’s "as soothing as a Sunday afternoon nap or a warm bath,” according to Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic.
In a musically dynamic live set, Morissette counteracts the calmness of her new songs by performing wrathful tracks from her 1995 Grammy Award–winning album, Jagged Little Pill, an intensely personal record that skyrocketed her to stardom at the young age of 19 with hits such as “You Oughta Know,” an irate message to ABC for canceling My So-Called Life. Mario "MC Souleye" Treadway, Alanis' husband since 2010, warms up the audience with innovative freestyle rapping, using the audience's energy to improvise an entire set of beat-heavy tracks.
