New York, NY (November 18, 2019) – On the heels of announcing the incredible line up for the Melissa Etheridge 2020 Cruise, the iconic GRAMMY and Oscar-winning singer/songwriter and activist, Melissa Etheridge announced today she will hit the road once again next Spring to continue The Medicine Show. Etheridge will kick off “The Medicine Show” spring tour on March 26 in Waukegan, IL and will stay on the road until early May hitting Tarrytown, Atlantic City, Boston, Knoxville and more, before wrapping up in Clearwater on May 1.
|“I am so excited to be hitting the road next spring, bringing my fans The Medicine Show live once again. I received such a great response and warm welcome when I toured around the album’s release, I knew I wanted to take The Medicine Show back on the road. This time around I plan on hitting some new cities. It’s time again to lift up, to inspire and be inspired,” remarked Etheridge.|
The singer will be performing a variety of fan favorites but will also perform songs from her latest album The Medicine Show. Released on April 12 via Concord Records, The Medicine Show reunited with celebrated producer John Shanks for the album which has her sounding as rousing as ever, bringing a new level of artistry to her 15th studio recording. The album deals with universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion and, most profoundly, healing.
Through the songs she processed the deep fears and hurting she saw in the nation on collective and personal levels; “Shaking” about national anxiety, “Here Comes the Pain,” personalizing the opioid crisis, the unifying “Human Chain” about the hope for healing, and the rocking, anthemic “Love Will Live.” More highlights include the album-closer, “Last Hello” drawing on the incredible strengths and courage shown by the survivors of the Parkland school shootings, and the infectious “Wild and Lonely,” and “Faded By Design,” exploring themes of her past with a new perspective.
Etheridge visits the Twin River Events Center in Lincoln on April 10th. Three different VIP packages will be made available for all tour dates and will include exclusive merch, preferred seating, photo ops and more!
