A former music icon returns to the world’s biggest stages as the concert from Alanis Morissette at FEQ 2020 will be presented on July 13.
Another evening filled with nostalgia, as the show by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette at FEQ 2020 will be presented on July 13 on the main stage of the Plains of Abraham. You may be wondering what happened so that an artist who has been almost forgotten by the vast majority of music lovers can afford to be one of the headliners of a major festival like the Quebec City Summer Festival? Well, it’s because of the 25th anniversary of the release of one of the best-selling albums of the 90s, Jagged Little Pill.
It was the Ottawa native’s third album the first 2, much more of the dance-pop genre than rock, having been almost ignored by the public It’s a whole different story for Jagged Little Pill, which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. The album also rose to the top of Billboard charts around the world, especially in the United States and Europe.
So, I could mention all 12 songs on the album as having been a huge success, but this is particularly true for Hand in My Pocket, Head Over Feet, You Oughta Know and the most popular of the lot, Ironic. For me, it’s You Learn that sits at the top of the best songs on the album, one that contribute to extricate myself from the clutches of the bad dance-pop movement that was doing damage at the time and fall into Rock & Roll, who was springing back as the mainstream genre at the time, especially with the Grunge movement (thank you Alanis!).
Without completely disappearing from the scene, the turn of the millennium was more difficult for Morissette with his second album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie which, without being absolutely destroyed by the critics, received a lukewarm reception. That didn’t stop the Thank U song from attracting public attention and allowing the singer to pursue a prolific career, without however regaining the glory of her flagship album.
So, it will be a very emotional reunion for everyone on July 13th during the concert from Canadian former glory Alanis Morissette at FEQ 2020.
Speaking of reunions, it is another group which made itself known in the 90s (and led by a woman) who will warm the crowd during this very special evening, in this case Garbage and their mega-hits Only Happy When it Rains and I Think I’m Paranoid.
