Concert Hall - Sydney Opera House
The Concert Hall is the largest interior venue at the Sydney Opera House. With its high vaulted ceiling and interior finishes of brush box and white birch timber, it is designed primarily for acoustic performances.
The Frontier Touring Company is proud to announce that iconic female rock singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge is returning to New Zealand and Australia for a very special July 2012 live tour.
Fans will experience an intimate evening more than two hours of powerful performances from Melissa's extensive catalogue of hits when she returns for her first Australian appearances since 1996. The tour will kick off in New Zealand in July 2012 and will continue on to Australia taking in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA.
On September 27, 2011 the Grammy Award-winning singer officially reached global star status after she received the honour of having her own star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This comes on top of her remarkable 2007 Academy Award for her song "I Need To Wake Up," written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.
The singer's honest and confessional song writing style paired with her bluesy rock-infused vocals has seen her rise to the top of the musical spectrum since the release of her critically acclaimed 1988 self-titled debut album. Melissa Etheridge reached No. 3 on the ARIA Charts and went on to achieve Triple Platinum status in Australia and Double Platinum in New Zealand, a huge achievement for a debut album.
Fan favourites such as 'Bring Me Some Water', 'No Souvenirs' and 'Ain't It Heavy', for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal, are amongst many of the songs that make Etheridge one of rock music's most exciting performers.
