MELISSA ETHERIDGE Australian & NZ tour details announced

 

 

The Frontier Touring Company is proud to announce that Oscar® and Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter MELISSA ETHERIDGE is returning to New Zealand and Australia for a very special July 2012 live tour.

Fans will experience an intimate evening of over two hours of powerful performances from Melissa's extensive catalogue of hits when she returns for her first Australian appearances since 1996. The tour will kick off in New Zealand in July 2012 and will continue on to Australia taking in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA.

On September 27, 2011 the Grammy Award-winning singer officially reached global star status after she received the honour of having her own star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This comes on top of her remarkable 2007 Academy Award for her song "I Need To Wake Up," written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.

The singer's honest and confessional song writing style paired with her bluesy rock-infused vocals has seen her rise to the top of the musical spectrum since the her 1988 debut album Melissa Etheridge, which is certified triple platinum in Australia and double platinum in New Zealand.

Fan favourites such as 'Bring Me Some Water', 'No Souvenirs' and 'Ain't It Heavy', for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal, are amongst many of the songs that make Etheridge one of rock music's most exciting performers.

Etheridge's 1993 album Yes I Am contained the massive hits 'I'm the Only One' and 'Come to My Window', a scorching song of desire that delivered her second Best Female Rock Grammy. Since then, Melissa has continued to tour constantly and has released a total of ten studio albums, and has recently launched the daily Melissa Etheridge Radio Show for broadcast throughout the world.

"As one of the most prominent women in rock, Melissa Etheridge has blazed a striking path through the genre with her soulful, gritty voice and formidable guitar playing... This compilation presents highlights from Etheridge's remarkable career" - CD Universe

"What can be said about Melissa Etheridge that hasn't already been said? The singer/songwriter/guitarist has done it all. Nominated for fifteen Grammy's, winning two, one Academy Award, selling millions of albums and is even a breast cancer survivor." - rockshowcritique.com

"Melissa Etheridge is to female rock vocalists, what Robert Plant is to male rock vocalists. She's got that full growling throaty sound, plus tremendous guitar skills and writes songs that are truly inspirational." - sceneinthedark.com

Fans can rejoice at the news that the one and only Melissa Etheridge is returning to our shores for a series of electric and inspirational shows. Don't miss a chance to see the legendary performer live in your city.
