Alanis Morissette, Joan Jett will play Milwaukee next July
Alanis Morissette was in a celebratory mood the last time she was in Milwaukee. On a tour for the 25th anniversary of her wildly successful album, Jagged Little Pill, she — and a partially soggy audience — braved bad storms at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater and put on a ripper of a show.
Morissette needed no such reason to book her return trip to the city, which she announced Thursday morning as part of her 31-city “Triple Moon Tour.” She’ll be in Milwaukee toward the end of that run, playing the Amp once again for a July 28 show with special guests Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Morgan Wade.
“I am inspired and heartened and feel giddy inside to be going on this upcoming summer tour with Joan and Morgan and all our teams,” Morissette said while sharing the tour news on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “Can’t wait to see you, can’t wait to perform!”
The alt-rock singer-songwriter had dropped a pair of albums in Canada prior to releasing Jagged Little Pill in 1995 (the 25th anniversary tour was delayed a smidge by the pandemic). It racked up a ton of awards, including four Grammys, and has been certified 16 times platinum. She’s put out seven studio albums in the years since, most recently 2022’s The Storm Before the Calm. She also got into the holiday spirit just last week by releasing her version of “Last Christmas,” which appears on an EP with a few other previous yuletide-related releases.
Like the top-liner, Joan Jett needs no introduction, especially to Milwaukeeans. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is a frequent visitor to our particular Lake Michigan shores, having played here this summer as part of the Harley-Davidson Homecoming and in 2022 at American Family Field. Morgan Wade’s at the other end of the career spectrum but has made a quick mark in Nashville courtesy of her 2021 debut album, Reckless, and this year’s follow-up, Psychopath.
