Her deeply clever and often brutally candid songs have been garnering critical praise since she began her career in the early 1990s. This year, saw the release of her critically acclaimed memoir, Horror Stories. in their review, NPR said, “there are so many things to admire about ‘Horror Stories’, it’s hard to list them all. But the real star of Horror Stories is Phair’s elegant but unpretentious writing, which proves she’s as adept at writing prose as she is at writing songs. And anyone familiar with her music knows how great a thing that is.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I remember buying “Jagged Little Pill” when it was originally released I never managed to get around to catching her in concert and while primarily a heavy music fan, I really wanted to see what she was all about on the live stage. Looks like I’ll have my chance next summer when she brings the much lauded album to life on this anniversary tour. I’m also thankful of the choosing both Garbage and Liz Phair along as supporting acts since each of them have a number of songs that I’ve enjoyed over the years. For those interested in this tour I’d sugguest getting the tickets nice and early since its surely going to sell out fast based on the overall package. Closing up this announcement, I wonder what you all think about it and if you’re planning on going. Chime in down below in the comments. See you next time.
