Melissa Etheridge, Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration concerts added to Tanglewood season
LENOX -- Melissa Etheridge, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, will perform June 21 at Tanglewood, the Boston Symphony Orchestra announced today.
Tanglewood will also present the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration, a new symphonic project celebrating American musical icon Jerry Garcia, featuring vocalist and guitarist Warren Haynes with the Boston Pops under the direction of Keith Lockhart on June 22.
Both performances will be in the Shed. Tickets to both shows go on sale Jan. 27.
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 second Best Female Rock Grammy. Etheridge's popularity has been built around such memorable songs as "Bring Me Some Water" (from her debut), "No Souvenirs" (from Brave And Crazy) and "Ain't It Heavy" (from Never Enough).
The Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration is a ground-breaking orchestral adventure featuring new orchestral arrangements of Garcia's storied original compositions as well as classic interpretations of timeless standards. Powerhouse vocalist and guitarist Warren Haynes (The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead, and Government Mule) will collaborate with the symphony, lending his soul-soaked, introspective blend of rock, blues, R&B and jazz to Garcia's masterworks.
Tickets for Etheridge's June 21 show range from $23.50 to $69.50. Tickets for the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration on June 22 range from $23.50 to $79.
All tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27, at www.tanglewood.org or 888-266-1200.
