STORMY SUMMER NIGHT WITH MELISSA
She is one of the female rock icons par excellence. In a career spanning more than three decades, Melissa Etheridge has sold more than 25 million records, been nominated for a Grammy 15 times, won an Oscar and been honored with a star on the legendary "Hollywood Walk of Fame." With her 15th album, "The Medicine Show," the artist once again rocks far away from the usual mainstream monotony and shows that she is far from being old news. That she is still able to fascinate on stage, she will prove on the occasion of her indoor show at the "Z7 Summer Nights 2020".
The popularity of the US singer was based on songs such as "Bring Me Some Water" (1988), "No Souvenirs" (1989) or "Aint It Heavy" (1992), which earned her the first Grammy for best female rock vocalist. Commercially and artistically she reached the zenith with her fourth album "Yes, I Am" (1993) and the included mega hits "I Am The Only One" and "Come To My Window", a song full of sizzling passion, which finally brought her her second Grammy. The six-time platinum album stayed on the charts for more than two and a half years. In 2007, Melissa Etheridge also won an Oscar for "I Need To Wake Up," from the Al Gore documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." She made her Broadway debut in 2011 as "Jimmy" in Green Day's rock opera "American Idiot," where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for a week. Likewise, she was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
After her stint on "Memphis Rock And Soul" (2016), Melissa is back where her fans love to see and hear her with her latest effort, "The Medicine Show." "I thought long and hard about the first impression of this album" says Melissa Etheridge about the choice of the title song. "The number is very different from everything else on the album. But it has so much to do with where I'm at in my life right now." The song opens the album with unbridled power and loud guitars, and is filled with fire and the intensity of her longtime musical ally, producer John Shanks. The songs revolve around themes of renewal, reconciliation, compassion and, above all, healing, among others. And so Melissa Etheridge's new album is not only medicine for the ears, but also balm for the soul. The scene magazine Stereo stated in May 2019: "Melissa Etheridge runs against the mainstream monotony with hard-hitting rock and clever lyrics." We are looking forward to a stormy summer night at Z7.
