Melissa Etheridge: I’m Not Broken Tour Heading to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa Thursday, April 11, 2024, at 8 p.m.
Grammy® Award-winning rockstar and activist, Melissa Etheridge, announced today that she’ll be back on the road in 2024 for her I’m Not Broken Tour, which includes a stop in the Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa on Thursday, April 11, 2024, at 8 p.m.
Exclusive VIP upgrade packages will also be available for purchase. For tickets and additional information, please visit melissaetheridge.com.
The I’m Not Broken Tour kicks off on March 14 at Kaiser Permanente Arena in Santa Cruz, California and will take Etheridge to several stops across the West Coast and Gulf Coast.
Wrapping up a performance-heavy year, the tour comes as the next chance for fans to catch Etheridge on the stage following her critically acclaimed Broadway engagement, My Window at Circle in the Square Theatre. The three-month long run began in September of 2023, just a year after her return to theatre in her one woman show, My Window – A Journey Through Life. A busy fall for Etheridge, she also released her recent memoir Talking to My Angels on September 5 which debuted at #9 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show.
For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a Grammy® in 1992. She hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought her second Grammy® Award for Best Female Rock Performance.
In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over." Her astounding success that year led to her receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996.
Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. Since her notable rise to fame, she has continued to release several critically acclaimed recordings including, This Is M.E., Memphis Rock & Soul, and The Medicine Show.
On September 17, 2021, Etheridge released her most recent studio project, titled One Way Out. The nine-track album features a collection of songs she wrote in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s that never made the cut…. until now.
October of 2022 saw Etheridge’s return to the theatre with her one woman show, My Window – A Journey Through Life. The critically acclaimed, sold-out run premiered at New World Stages on October 13, 2022. In September of 2023, she fulfilled a life-long dream of hers, debuting My Window as a three-month headlining engagement at Circle in the Square Theatre on Broadway. On September 5, 2023, she also released her memoir Talking to My Angels (HarperCollins), which debuted at #9 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
