Festival Details - "Melissa Etheridge"...

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

The singer-songwriter known for Yes I Am and Rock and Soul comes to Royal Festival Hall.

Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.

Her popularity grew around originals such as ‘No Souvenirs’ and ‘Ain't It Heavy’, for which she won a Grammy Award in 1992.

Etheridge hit her stride with 1993 album, Yes I Am, featuring ‘I'm the Only One’ and searing song of longing ‘Come to My Window’.

Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favourite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades.

In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, featuring hit single, ‘I Want to Come Over’.

Etheridge won ‘Best Song’ at the Academy Awards in 2007 for ‘I Need to Wake Up’, written for the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

Etheridge has shown herself to be an artist who has never allowed ‘inconvenient truths’ to keep her down.

Early in her recording career, Etheridge acknowledged her sexual orientation when it was considered less than prudent to do so.

In October 2004, Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer. She spoke openly about her experience, giving hope to many women afflicted with the disease.

In 2016, she released MEmphis Rock & Soul, which received stellar reviews from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and American Songwriter.
