Alanis Morissette plays like she oughta know in TA

A varied crowd lined up outside the Nokia Arena on Monday night to see Alanis Morissette’s first concert in Israel since 2000. Despite social media threats demanding that she boycott Israel, the 38-year-old Canadian-American singer-songwriter performed to a sold-out crowd on Monday night in Tel Aviv.
In contrast to several performances cancelled in light of international political pressures, most recently by singer Cat Power and musician Stevie Wonder, Morissette stuck to her planned tour stop in Israel. Her concert comes just a couple of weeks after the end of clashes between Israel and Gazan terrorists during the IDF Operation Pillar of Defense, which drew worldwide criticism.

Throughout her performance, Morissette expressed support to the Israeli people, and at some point in the concert the band organ played the traditional Hebrew song, “Hine Ma Tov” (Here Is What’s Good) which the audience immediately recognized and sang along to.

A mostly adult crowd, it was clear that fans from her Jagged Little Pill days dominated the audience, rising from their seats and singing along to classic tracks such as “Ironic,” “You Learn,” and “Head Over Feet.” Her performance of “You Oughta Know” drew the loudest participation from the audience, which knew each and every single word to one of her most popular songs, from her best-selling album. Seventeen years after the track was originally released, Morissette still performed the song with the same passion and venom she was known and admired for.
While some fans at the front of the stage were waving Canadian flags, the rest of the audience lit up with their cellphones recording the event and moving them from side to side like candles to the slower songs she performed, most notably “Mary Jane.”
