Have you ever seen Melissa Etheridge live in concert? Her gutsy, long and heart-felt shows demonstrate her true love for both music and her fans. There are so many reasons to see her in person! Let us count the ways…

She is one of rock music’s great female icons.

Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs,” and “Ain’t It Heavy,” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal.


She is one of the world’s most charitable artists.

The organization Look to the Stars ranks Etheridge as being one of the planet’s most generous performers, up there with legendary philanthropists and successful performers like Elton John, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey. Here are just a few of the many charities and foundations that Etheridge has supported:
Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Clothes Off Our Back, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Dream Foundation, Entertainment Industry Foundation, Family Equality Council, Feeding America, GRAMMY Foundation, Live Earth, Love Our Children USA, MusiCares, National Domestic Violence Hotline, Pink Bracelet Fund, Stand Up to Cancer, The Art of Elysium, Treatment Action Campaign, V-Day and World Vision.
