So, tell us how the tour is going.
It’s a very limited run tour. It’s about ten days. It is sort of like spring training to me. It’s myself and my guitars. It’s an intimate way to see me live, and for anyone who enjoys my songs, and music in general; and the performance, it’s an intimate experience. I love the Westbury Theatre.

This Is Melissa Etheridge - Interview with Out & About Nashville

by Joseph Brownbell (Out & About Nashville)

It’s been just over 25 years since Melissa Etheridge released her self-titled debut album. In that time, the rocker has come out of the closet, weathered some very public relationship scrutiny and battled cancer. Etheridge’s Nashville concert at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on April 15 is the first in a string of dates for the This is ME Solo Tour—where fans will get their first taste of a newly independent Melissa Etheridge.

Out & About Nashville chatted with the veteran star about activism throughout her career, collaborations with producers and writers who’ve worked with Eminem, Kesha, Demi Lovato and more for her forthcoming record and when she’s tying the knot with partner Linda Wallem.

The singer is pissed off about Russia’s dangerous anti-gay laws. She says America shouldn’t be boycotting the Sochi Olympics—now is the time for gay athletes to be heard.

Melissa Etheridge has a voice.

It’s a voice that, over her career as a singer, songwriter, and activist, has been used to rouse. It’s roused anyone who’s seen and heard the electricity with which she uses it on stage, performing any one of her indelible songs. And it’s roused to action those who can’t ignore its plea when it’s making a call for social change.
