Alanis Morissette lands in Israel
Canadian chanteuse set to perform her first gig in Israel since 2000
If a remake of “Boy Meets World” and a Hootie & the Blowfish reunion weren’t enough to drive home the incontrovertible truth that the 1990s are back, Canadian songstress Alanis Morissette, one of that decade’s top musical icons, has arrived in Israel for a high-profile gig.
Morissette will hold the final concert of her “Guardian Angel” world tour on Monday. The appearance at Tel Aviv’s Nokia Arena will be the 38-year-old singer’s third concert in Israel after performing here twice in 2000.
The singer landed in the Holy Land on Friday, accompanied by her husband, the rapper Mario “MC Souleye” Treadway (who is expected to take part in the concert), and the couple’s 2-year-old son, Ever.
Morissette decided to expedite her arrival so that her family could enjoy a few days in Israel, including a visit to Jerusalem’s Old City.
The singer, best known for her 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill,” which has sold in excess of 33 million copies worldwide, said she was “delighted” to return to the country. “I had a great time in Israel professionally, spiritually and emotionally,” she said in a media statement.
