Caesars Palace, Atlantic City, New Jersey
Friday, October 3, 2014
Over fifteen years after the breakthrough debut of Jagged Little Pill, an album which earned four GRAMMYs, sold 30 million records and spawned a dedicated worldwide fan base, Alanis Morissette remains not only an enduringly popular artist, but one whose celebrated body of work stems from a fierce commitment to authenticity and, to an equal extent, vulnerability. She has always evidenced that she was an artist with her own point of view and is regarded as one of the most insightful artists of our time. To this day, Jagged Little Pill remains the best-selling debut release by a female artist in the U.S. and is also the highest selling debut album worldwide in music history.
As a recording artist, Alanis Morissette has released a series of groundbreaking albums that have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide. She has won twelve Juno Awards, seven Grammy Awards, and has also received an additional fourteen GRAMMY nominations. Her subsequent five studio albums have all included a series of chart-topping singles. Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, the follow up to Jagged Little Pill, debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart with record-setting first-week sales of nearly 470,000 copies. The release featured “Thank U,” which became a major international hit single and was nominated for the 2000 GRAMMY Award for “Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.” In 2002, she released Under Rug Swept, which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200. Two years later came So-Called Chaos, whose single “Everything” became an Adult Top 40 mainstay. “Eight Easy Steps” also became a club hit as a dance mix. In 2005, The Collection amassed a best-of anthology with 17 tracks that delivered favorites from previous albums, as well as a well-received cover of Seal’s “Crazy.” Her most recent release, Flavors of Entanglement, was released in June 2008 and debuted in the US in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. The album garnered widespread acclaim and included a worldwide tour playing to ecstatic packed-house crowds all across the globe. In August of 2012, Alanis released her highly anticipated seventh studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights to rave reviews. Recorded in Los Angeles, the album marked the songstress’ first release in four years.
