You oughta know, Alanis Morissette is coming to Australia for the first time in 18 years.

It’s been more than 20 years since Alanis Morissette released Jagged Little Pill – one of the best-selling albums of all time – and more than 18 since she last performed in Australia.

But clear your calendars, because next year the Canadian singer will be returning to our shores to perform two rare shows.

The acoustic sets will be staged at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne on January 23 and ICC Sydney Theatre on January 24, and will cover the 43-year-old’s greatest hits.

Fingers crossed that among them will be You Oughta Know, All I Really Want, Hand In My Pocket and, of course, Ironic (which, ironically, doesn’t actually contain any examples of genuine irony).

Over her 34 years in the music industry, Morissette has released seven studio albums and won 14 Grammy Awards, but lately has been devoting her attention to her wellness podcast, Conversation With Alanis Morissette, and to raising her two children - son Ever, 6, and daughter Onyx, born last year.

She's also rocking a brand new blonde look.

While she has performed a handful of North American dates this year, at this stage it seems her Aussie shows are the only others she has on the cards.

So feel blessed, folks.

And get in quick. Tickets are available from Monday via Ticketek and Ticketmaster.
