Alanis Morissette Performs 'Basket Case' In Support Of Green Day
It has undoubtedly been a turbulent week for pop-punk legends Green Day. Billie Joe's recent meltdown on stage in Las Vegas has led to the front man being sent to rehab, meaning that the band has had to cancel many of their scheduled public appearances. And it would seem that Alanis Morissette has picked up some of the flack. As Spinner notes, Morissette was brought in, last minute to replace Green Day on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live. What's more, the singer-songwriter gave a rendition of Green Day's 1994 break out single "Basket Case" that was dedicated to Billie Joe. Morissette's version, unlike the amped-up punk rock of the original, is a stripped back, acoustic arrangement. And, as Spinner states, the chorus lyrics of "Sometimes I give myself the creeps/Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me/It all keeps setting up/I think I'm cracking up/Am I just paranoid/Or am I stoned", seem to have particular resonance in light of recent events. It is unclear whether Billie Joe's rehab will affect the band's upcoming North American tour. Green Day were scheduled to play a handful of dates later this year before heading out on a larger North American trek at the beginning of 2012. The dates are as follows: 11/26 - Seattle - Paramount Theater 11/27 - Kennewick - Toyota Center 11/29 - Salem Armory - Auditorium 12/01 - Sacramento - Memorial Auditorium 12/02 - Reno Grand Sierra - Resort Grand Theatre 12/04 - Santa Cruz - Civic Auditorium 12/10 - Tempe - Marquee Theatre 01/07 - Green Bay - Resch Arena 01/08 - Rosemont - Allstate Arena 01/10 - Wilkes-Barre - Mohegan Sun Arena 01/11 - Penn State College, PA - Bryce Jordan Center 01/13 - Rochester Blue Cross Arena 01/14 - Pittsburgh - Consol Energy Center 01/16 - Brooklyn - Barclays Center 01/18 - Manchester - Verizon Wireless Arena 01/19 - Uncasville - Mohegan Sun Arena 01/21 - Fairfax - Patriot Center 01/22 - Philadelphia - Liacourias Center 01/24 - Providence - Dunkin Donuts Center 01/25 - Portland - Cumberland Civic Center 01/27 - Quebec City - Colisee Pepsi Arena 01/29 - Toronto - Air Canada Centre 01/30 - Cleveland - Wolstein Center 02/01 - Moline - Wireless Center 02/02 - Madison - Alliant Energy Center 02/04 - Omaha - CenturyLink Arena 02/06 - Broomfield - 1STBANK Center 02/08 - Las Vegas - MGM Grand Garden Arena
