Melissa Etheridge rocks Tulsa April 25

TULSA, Okla. – One of rock music’s greatest female icons, Melissa Etheridge, is making her much-anticipated return to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa April 25.

Etheridge exploded on the rock scene with memorable songs like “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy,” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. She 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 album was certified platinum six times and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart.

Etheridge is also an Oscar winner for Best Original Song in 2007. In 2011, she made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera, “American Idiot,” where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for one week. That same year, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
