One of the most successful roots rockers of her generation, Melissa Etheridge is set to give Vancouver a show unlike any other she’s done here over the years. As part of her I’m Not Broken Tour, the 62-year-old will play the Orpheum on March 23, 2024. The night will have her performing with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
More than a musician, Etheridge has been a successful author, with her 2001 book The Truth Is . . .: My Life in Love and Music covering everything from a highly publicized battle with cancer to her challenges in the entertainment business to her status as a gay icon. An early LGBTIQ+ advocate, Etheridge came out as a lesbian in 1993—a time when musicians often hid their sexuality. She has also raised awareness over the years for causes ranging from the legalization of marijuana to the importance of exploring alternative energy sources like biodiesel.
During her career, Etheridge has sold more than 25 million records, while piling up hits such as “Bring Me Some Water” and “Come to My Window”. The I’m Not Broken Tour comes on the heels of a successful Broadway stint for Etheridge, whose My Window played for a three-month run.
