You Oughta Know: Alanis Morissette Cancels Manila Concert

Canadian-American singer Alanis Morissette announced that her "Jagged Little Pill" anniversary tour in Manila has been canceled.

The two-day concert, which was supposed to be held on Nov. 18 and 19 this year at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, was first scheduled for April 2020, then rescheduled to 2021 and again in 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Morissette told her fans that she was crestfallen over the canceled tour dates.

"([I] am framing it to myself that I am postponing for another time). I love you each so much, and I can't wait to get there. Unfortunately it's just not possible this November...” she said. “I love you all and I will be back as soon as we can. Until then, big hug."

Local concert promoter Ovation Productions, in a separate Facebook post, cited "scheduling issues and the unprecedented logistical challenges of global touring in 2022" as reasons behind the tour's cancelation.

"Ovation Productions feels it's best to refund the ticket holders now and have all committed to rescheduling these days at the earliest possible time..." the promoter said. "All purchased tickets will receive a full refund. Refunds will be processed at point of purchase to the original payment method used for purchase."
