Alanis Morissette Loves The Bright Lights @ Hammersmith Apollo

Alanis Morissette live at Hammersmith Apollo (Paul Lyme)

The seats had been set out for singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette’s two performances at the Apollo in Hammersmith, London, but they could have saved themselves the effort as the excited crowd had no plans to use them. They were already in buoyant mood from England’s quarter final World Cup result and London Pride events and when Alanis took to the stage at the sold out venue the place just erupted!

Pacing from one end of the stage to other non-stop, the Canadian treated the adoring audience to eighteen of her songs from her long music career, including one that has never been performed before. Opening with All I Really Want, each and every song felt like it was an encore. The fans belted out the words so loud that at points it was like a sing-a-long with Alanis.

There aren’t many artists out there with vocals as incredibly powerful and her voice is just as on point as it’s always been. The only thing that has changed is her new hairstyle! The long flowing locks have been ditched for cropped hair.

Occasionally she stopped her stage marching to equip herself with the sparkliest guitars I’ve seen. Her band continued around her as she faced up to them with a beaming smile on her face. Supported by the waiving of Croatian flags.

There wasn’t rain on anyone’s wedding day today. Luckily the heat didn’t follow anyone into the cool venue, but the heat must have been felt in the crowd as they all danced and sang along to Ironic. This was one of the ten songs she performed from her critically acclaimed third album Jagged Little Pill.

Coming back out for her three song encore, we were treated to London. A song she had written a year and a half after Jagged Little Pill but has never performed live. It was penned after she returned home from a tour in London and she couldn’t get the place out of her head and wanted to come back so bad.

Finishing up with the beautiful Uninvited, and my favourite Thank You, the set was a well picked selection of her upbeat rock music that seemed to have just what everyone wanted.

Alanis returns this Friday to the Apollo, before headlining Cornbury Festival. Hopefully it won’t be as long before she returns to the UK, and with a bit of luck there may be some new material for her to showcase.
