Rock singer and guitarist, Melissa Etheridge is bringing her tour to Long Beach in honor of her latest album, “4th Street Feeling,” Etheridge is an Oscar and two-time Grammy winner. With major hits including “Come to My Window” and “I’m the Only One,” Etheridge offers personal lyrics and a soothing raspy voice. The same year these hits were released in 1993, Etheridge came out as a lesbian, becoming an iconic LGBT activist.
Etheridge started her career when she was hired by A&M Records as a songwriter. A couple years later she caught her break when she signed with Island Records after president Chris Blackwell heard her perform. As Etheridge furthered her music career, her lyrics revealed a comfort level with herself and her sexuality. In 2005 Etheridge’s hit song “I Need to Wake Up” was on the soundtrack for Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, leading her to an Oscar for original song. In addition to her recording career, Melissa hosts “The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show” and this fall Etheridge will be honored by the National Women’s Museum of Art in Washington DC with her inclusion of “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” into the exhibition.
“We are excited to host such a beloved and talented artist for a night of great music and passion,” said Dan Spellens, Director of Theaters & Entertainment for SMG at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.” We are very pleased to welcome Ms. Etheridge back to the Terrace Theater,” he concluded.
