Orton’s support slot with Morissette were rescheduled after celebrations for the 25th-anniversary celebrations of Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill’ were postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The shows were originally due to take place in autumn 2020 but were then moved to October 2021 and November 2021 before being cancelled once more.

Last October, Morissette wrote on Twitter: “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.”
