Alanis has 12 Juno Awards, 7 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe nomination and has sold over 60 millions album worldwide. She has been a Canadian and international favourite since Jagged Little Pill exploded onto the scene in 1995. As a girl in high school at the time, it was the CD that you could most likely find in every second locker and it was an unofficial anthem for our volleyball team — although we were probably all too young at that point to have experienced the emotion that radiated from her powerful lyrics.

Tickets for her Vancouver show on Thursday, October 4, 2012 (doors at 6:00pm, show at 7:00pm) are still available for $39.00, $69.50, and $99.50 by calling 1-855-985-5000 or ordering through Ticketmaster Outlets and the Rogers Wireless Box Office. This is an all-ages show with reserved seating.
