Alanis Morissette, 47, postpones UK and European tour

Alanis Morissette has postponed the upcoming UK and European leg of her tour.

The shows were set to kick off later this month but the singer, 47, announced she would not be travelling on Twitter on Friday, saying she found touring difficult with her children Ever, 10, Onyx, five, and Winter, two.

The Canadian musician wrote: ‘Europe & UK missing you so much. Traveling overseas from country to country is becoming increasingly challenging with three kids during a time like no other on this beautiful planet.

‘I know things will shift— but for this moment— I am heartbroken to say that we have to postpone the upcoming UK and Europe shows in October & November 2021.

‘Stay tuned for the rescheduled dates (coming very soon), and please hold onto your tickets as they will be valid for the new ones. I can’t wait to see you each as soon as we possibly can.’

Alanis – who shares her children with hip hop star Souleye, real name Mario Treadway, 41 – was set to visit Glasgow, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, London and Dublin on her tour. She was also due to play a number of European cities.

The news comes just days after she performed at the Hollywood Bowl in California this week.  

A number of stars, including Rebel Wilson,  enjoyed a bit of ’90s nostalgia at the show on Tuesday night.

The Pitch Perfect star made herself known by standing at the very front of the stage – and was even caught by the stage camera, meaning the audience could see the star was there.

Rebel, 41, also took multiple pictures and videos of herself posing to the camera, while Alanis performed some of her biggest hits from Jagged Little Pill behind her. 

She captioned the series of photos she posted on Instagram, ‘@alanis you are so iconic and inspirational! Tonight was my teenage dream come true! #jaggedlittlepill.’  

Also performing on stage that night were fellow ’90s rockers Garbage, and lead singer Shirley Manson paid a heartfelt tribute to Alanis, and the success of Jagged Little Pill.

Clearly a die hard fan, comedian Whitney posted a fun caption referencing many Alanis songs – and even had special earrings that included lyrics from You Oughta Know. 

‘You Oughta Know that I am seeing @alanis tomorrow night and All I Really Want is to wear these earrings but they’re So Unsexy? And yes I have a giant framed photo of the Jagged Little Pill cassette. Where do I hang it in my house? Above the medicine cabinet? Is that Ironic?’

Meanwhile, Rebel Wilson continued to show off her newly-slim physique in the photos she posted.

The Bridesmaids star proudly announced last November she’d reached her goal weight of 75kg (165lbs or 11.8 stone).

‘Hit my goal with one month to spare! Even though it’s not about a weight number, it’s about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal and that was 75 kilograms,’ she wrote on Instagram.

According to People magazine, Rebel’s remarkable transformation is partially down to following the Mayr Method diet plan.

A source told the publication she got ‘amazing results’ by changing her eating habits while staying at the Austrian health and wellness retreat last year, and has continued to follow the plan.

‘It’s an approach that eliminates food intolerances, reduces sugar, encourages eating whole foods slowly, boosts the immune system and reduces inflammation,’ a source said.

‘She exercises with a personal trainer up to six times a week, goes on walks and is trying to up her protein intake nutritionally.’
