After two quiet summers without a concert in London’s Harris Park, the green space near London city center will vibrate this summer with some icons of the 90s, including a Canadian superstar who produced one of the most influential albums of his generation. Rocks The Park, formerly known as Rock The Park, returns for a four-night stay starting July 13, headlined by Alanis Morissette, the multi-Grammy Award-winning musician who has enjoyed a international fame with the 1995 album Jagged Little Pill and the hits You Should Know and Ironic.

Along with her music, Morissette is a hit on stage, in film, on television, and on podcasts. She released her ninth studio album in July 2020 and has been on tour since August to celebrate the 25and Jagged Little Pill birthday.

Garbage, along with lead vocalist Shirley Manson, is set to join on opening night for Ottawa native Morissette. The group sold 17 million albums and scored a huge hit with Stupid Girl in 1996.

Two other Canadian bands round out the list: The Beaches, an all-female rock band from Toronto who just released a five-track EP, Future Lovers, in May; and another 1990s blast, Crash Test Dummies, best known for Brad Roberts’ baritone vocals and their hit, Superman Song.

Queues for the other three days of the music festival, which started 17 years ago, are expected in the coming days. Tickets will go on sale from Monday.
