Olivia Rodrigo Ends Madison Square Garden Concert With Special Performance Featuring Jewel

While getting her start in the entertainment industry thanks to shows like Disney’s Bizaardvark and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Olivia Rodrigo didn’t stop there. While thankful for her time on television and the opportunities given to her by Disney, the singer eventually left the screen for the recording studio. Since 2021, the star released two studio albums, with her last, Guts, hitting shelves in September 2023. With the album gaining massive success, Rodrigo kicked off her Guts World Tour. And with her finishing her last performance at Madison Square Garden, the singer made sure it was memorable.

For four nights, Rodrigo called Madison Square Garden home. With the venue being a historic place for singers, Rodrigo wanted to make her last concert there a memorable one. Not only because it was Madison Square Garden, but because it was her final show in North America before heading overseas. And to the excitement of fans, Rodrigo decided to welcome Jewel to the stage to help her sing the 1995 hit song “You Were Meant For Me.” 

Detailing how much Jewel meant to her growing up, Rodrigo shared some memories of her past. “She is such an incredible songwriter. When I first started writing my songs, I would listen to her album Pieces of You before I went to bed. She’s incredible and it’s such an honor that she’s here with me tonight.”
