ALANIS MORISSETTE - GUARDIAN ANGEL TOUR
Alanis Morissette: 21:30
Over the course of her two decades in the music industry, Alanis Morissette remains not only an enduringly popular artist, but one whose success stems from a fierce commitment to authenticity. Both of these traits enable her to climb to new ground with her brand new album "Havoc and Bright Lights" that she will present to the audience at the Rockhal on 11 November 2012.
The Ottawa, Canada, native first rose to international fame in 1995 with her four-time Grammy Award-winning album “Jagged Little Pill”, which remains the best-selling debut release by a female artist in the United States and the highest-selling debut album worldwide in music history. She has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, receiving seven Grammy Awards.
Over the course of her two decades in the music industry, Morissette has never abandoned her objectives. She has become known as many things: an introspective confessionalist, a relentless seeker, and a hardcore truth-teller among them. She continues her quest for authenticity and emotional connection and healing on “Havoc and Bright Lights”. Set against a musical backdrop of bright, bold melodies, adrenalized guitars, and lush sonic textures, the album lays out Morissette’s mission in her swooping confident voice, while the urgent rock rhythms drive home her themes.
As always, Morissette plays with a duality in her songwriting; a hard-won equanimity that has come from having achieved a balance in her personal and professional life since the 2008 release of her epic break-up record “Flavors of Entanglement”. Since then, Morissette married rapper Souleye and gave birth to their son Ever. Naturally, these transformative events are reflected on her new album, providing a softness and vulnerability that has always been present in her work, but filled with even more conviction. The album’s first single “Guardian” is about her relationship with herself as well as with her son.
On stage, Alanis Morissette always brings an energy and sound that is sure to please her fans, as she will be performing her greatest hits and new songs at the Rockhal on 11 November 2012. Make sure to purchase your tickets in time!
