Melissa Etheridge opens Anchorage Concert Association season

Rock star performs Sept. 14 and 15 in the Atwood Concert Hall and Sept. 16 in Fairbanks


Anchorage, AK – Legendary live performer Melissa Etheridge brings her raspy vocals and soulful songs to Alaska for the first time this September. The Grammy- and Oscar-winning musician became one of the most popular recording artists of the 90s with her confessional lyrics, signature voice and exuberant guitar playing. She opens Anchorage Concert Association’s 2017/2018 season with back-to-back performances Sept. 14-15 in the Atwood Concert Hall.

After producing hits such as “I Want to Come Over,” “Come to My Window,” and “I’m the Only One,” Etheridge has almost made a second career as a doer of good deeds. Since coming out early in her career, she continues to be a high-profile gay rights activist, and she gave hope to cancer survivors when she rocked “Piece of My Heart” at the 2005 Grammys while still bald from chemo.

Melissa Etheridge is also performing in Fairbanks Saturday, Sept. 16, presented by the Fairbanks Concert Association.
