GRAMMY and Oscar-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge is set to make her Wynn Las Vegas debut this summer. For one-night-only, Etheridge will bring “The Medicine Show” tour to the intimate Encore Theater on Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets for this performance go on sale Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. PDT.
With more than 25 million albums sold worldwide, five platinum and three multi-platinum records, and 15 GRAMMY Award nominations and two GRAMMY wins, Etheridge has established herself as a music icon. Recently she announced her latest album, The Medicine Show, which will be released on Friday, April 12 via Concord Records. Reunited with celebrated producer John Shanks, the album will bring a new level of artistry to Etheridge’s 15th studio recording.
The namesake of her tour, The Medicine Show 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, 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.
In addition to being known for her passionate and dynamic live performances, Etheridge is also known for selflessly dedicating her time as an activist for human rights, LGBTQ issues and breast cancer awareness. Her other accolades include a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and an Academy Award for “I Need to Wake Up” for the climate change documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
