Singer, songwriter and activist, Melissa Etheridge, who is currently on tour with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, stopped by the Beacon Theater in New York City on Wednesday night to strut her stuff, flash her pearly whites and remind us what sexy music sounds like.
Watching Etheridge perform her hits from the 80’s, 90’s and the 00’s is a sensual pleasure for the ears and the heart. Her still stellar raspy signature voice commanded the audience as she tore through all her hits including “I Want to Come Over”, “Pulse”, “Chrome Plated Heart”, “I’m the Only One”, “Bring Me Some Water”.
Her Grammy award winning, “Come to My Window” had everyone on their feet and reminiscing about the longing and ache we’ve all felt for another.
Her pumped up, energetic encore of “Like the Way I Do” practically blew the roof off the Beacon and left us all howling for more.
Ms. Etheridge is on tour across the states and Canada all summer long. Come October, she’ll joining the reigns of many with her own cruise, “Melissa Etheridge and Friends, Rock the Boat” sailing from Tampa to Mexico.
