    The album sold over 33 million copies worldwide, and is considered her most beloved work in her illustrious career.

    Jagged Little Pill also spawned a jukebox musical of the same name, which premiered at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2018, before it debuted on Broadway in late 2019.

    The production earned 15 Tony Award nominations, the most of any production that year.

    The singer was slated to embark on a 25th Anniversary tour to celebrate Jagged Little Pill in 2020, though it was postponed to the summer of 2021.

    The UK and European tour was postponed again back in October, with Morissette revealing the challenges of travelling with three children.

    ‘Europe & UK missing you so much. Traveling overseas from country to country is becoming increasingly challenging with three kids during a time like no other on this beautiful planet,’ she said.
