America's most authentic heartland rocker is back on the road again, along with her treasure chest of folk rock hits and her unwavering dedication for performance. Melissa will be crisscrossing every corner of North America as she performs everywhere from the rustic bucolic South to the lush greens of the Western Seaboard to the most polite bastions north of the border. Don't miss her when she hits a city near you, including: Nashville, TN; Charleston, WV; Greenville, SC; Richmond, KY; Hershey and Bethlehem, PA; Northampton, MA; Ridgefield, CT; Westbury, Albany, and Syracuse, NY; Morristown, NJ; Concord, NH; New Bedford and Boston, MA; Rutland, VT; Toronto and Thunder Bay, ON; and finally San Francisco, CA.

Whether you're seeing her at the biggest music halls (such as Davies Symphony Hall while collaborating with the San Francisco Symphony) or the most invigorating festivals (Thunder Bay Blues Festival at Marina Park), don't miss a chance to catch Melissa Etheridge when she's in your area. Remember to check up on StubHub for all your Melissa Etheridge concert needs!


About Melissa Etheridge

Born in Leavenworth, Kansas, Melissa would start performing at a young age when she started learning guitar at eight years old. She would later be a member of her high school's music and dance group, titled Power and Life, where her interest in music would lead her to the Boston Berklee College of Music.

Before leaving her hometown for the creativity mecca of Boston, Melissa would begin to make a dent on the local country music scene by performing with a variety of different groups. Melissa would be unique in these groups as the only women performing in what was a traditionally male dominated genre in her area. Upon moving to Boston she would continue to perform, becoming a hot ticket on the local club circuit. Playing local dive bars could not satiate Melissa for long, as after three semesters she would drop out of university and move on to try and make her big break in music in Los Angeles, California.

Melissa's risky move would pay off as she was spotted by music manager Bill Leopold while performing in Pasadena, California. The exposure would lead to her signing a deal with Island Records, where she would apply her musical writing abilities to show business and write songs for movies, including the 1986 hit Weeds. Melissa wasn't a household name yet, and it would take some trying times - including getting rejected from Olivia Records and having her first full length rejected by Island Records - before she would go on to experience mainstream success.


Previous Hits

Melissa Etheridge, her debut album, would be released in 1988 and be a breakout hit. After her first album attempt was rejected by her label, Melissa would record the album in just four days. The album would be carried by the single "Bring Me Some Water", which would gain widespread popularity as well as critical acclaim, including four and a half stars from AllMusic. Melissa would keep up the momentum and release Brave and Crazy a year later, which would peak at #22 on the Billboard charts, tying her first album.

Next up was Never Enough, peaking at #21. Her single "Ain't It Heavy" would earn her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. The more mature content of her third album would pave the way for her fourth album, Yes I Am, in 1994. Yes I Am would become the pivotal Melissa Etheridge album, spending 138 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and peaking at #15. While Melissa had experienced critical and commercial success previously, Yes I Am would be the album that pushed her to international fame, with the hit "Come To My Window" becoming the quintessential Melissa Etheridge sound and gaining her another Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Her other single off the album "I'm The Only One" would be her first Billboard Top 10 single and gain a grammy nomination for Best Rock Song. Melissa would not stop there, putting out eight more full length albums over the course of her career, making her one of the most accomplished and loved Homeland rock stars of her generation.


Trivia

Melissa Etheridge came out relatively early in her career as a lesbian. She has been an activist for LGBT rights and has in the past refused to play venues or states if they practice discriminatory policies. One such example includes Colorado, which she boycotted in 1993 over the passage of Amendment 2 which discriminated against homosexual couples in the state.

Melissa has always attributed much of her success to her father, who was the driving force behind her musical career while she was still a child. Her father would ferry her all across Kansas, and sometimes farther, to get her to all of her performances.
