The show had originally been scheduled for July 1, 2020, with Liz Phair on the bill instead of Cat Power, but was postponed because of the pandemic.

The tour celebrates the 25th anniversary of Morissette’s breakthrough album, 1995’s Jagged Little Pill, which is also the title of a current jukebox musical using its songs, on Broadway.

Why did PNC wait until the last minute to cancel the show? I had already traveled earlier in the day. It should have been cancelled earlier in the day. This is unacceptable.

Considering we all knew this was coming, why would you even make the trip. Shame on you, not them.
