8:00 PM to 10:30 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music's great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge's popularity built around such memorable songs as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy" for which she won her first GRAMMY for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought her a second GRAMMY. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Etheridge is scheduled to release MEmphis Rock and Soul, a new album honoring Stax Records, in fall of 2016.
On June 20, 2016, Etheridge released a song called "Pulse." The singer wrote the song in reaction to the mass shootings that took place in Orlando on June 12, 2016. As she told Rolling Stone, "We want to try to make sense. We want to try to heal. We want to bring some meaning, some purpose. We also want to put it down forever in history. That's how I'm coping." All proceeds from the sale of "Pulse" will benefit Equality Florida, the state's largest LGBT civil rights organization.
For this special holiday show Melissa will be performing songs from her 2008 holiday album, A New Thought For Christmas. Show repertoire includes fan favorite rock hits and holiday classics such as "Merry Christmas Baby," Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "O Night Divine" and more.
