Morissette recently put out a studio album featuring all new material and several songs from Havoc and Bright Lights, including "Woman Down," "Havoc" and "Numb" are featured in this live set. But Morissette's strength lies in her early work, and to that end the bulk of this show is packed with more familiar tunes.
"All I Really Want" and "You Learn" from Jagged Little Pill come early in the set as does a take on the introspective "Flinch." "Ironic" turns into a full-blown crowd participation number with the audience singing the song's intro and probably every other phrase too under Alanis' vocals.
Three more from Jagged Little Pill, "Head over Feet," "Hand in My Pocket" and "You Oughta Know" build excitement as the show nears its end, appropriately closing with "Thank U" from Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie.
Morissette is genial enough between songs but there's minimal stage patter, making for a satisfying listen that should please her long-time fans.
