Rodrigo performed her own spin on the Chicago band’s 1994 debut single during the first two nights of her 2022 North American tour in Portland, Oregon (April 5) and Seattle, Washington (April 6).

Taking to their official Twitter account yesterday, Veruca Salt shared some fan-shot footage of Rodrigo and her band playing ‘Seether’ in Portland, while writing: “This made our day.”

The group said they had been “belting out” Rodrigo’s ‘Sour’ singles ‘Brutal’ and ‘Good 4 U’ “in the car nonstop for the past year”. You can see their tweet and a clip of the ‘Seether’ cover below.

Olivia Rodrigo also covered ‘Complicated’ by Avril Lavigne at her last two concerts. Check out the setlist, videos, reactions and photos from the first night here.
