Phair shared the news with fans less than three weeks before the shows are set to begin.
“Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances, I won’t be able to join Alanis & Garbage on tour this summer,” she wrote in a statement on Twitter on Friday night (July 23). “I’m incredibly disappointed as I was looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces. Shoutout to Alanis, Garbage, and Cat Power, who I know will put on an incredible show. Hope to see you all soon!”
As Phair shared, Cat Power is joining the lineup for the U.S. leg of the trek, which kicks off on Aug. 12 in Austin and runs through early October.
Morissette is celebrating the delayed 25th anniversary of 1995’s Jagged Little Pill. The tour was originally scheduled for summer 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic.
“When she asked me [to do this tour], it was at a difficult point for me, where I was trying to come back as an artist, and the industry powers that be are like, ‘You’ve already done your thing, we’re focusing on younger artists we can build and then reap the rewards for a long time,'” Phair, who released the album Soberish this year, told Billboard in May. “I found it really hard, harder than I expected, to break back in, and for s—– reasons — the same gross reasons the music industry was always gross. When she came in with this offer, I was like, ‘What a f—ing supportive awesome gesture,’ again. She’s great.”
