Melissa Etheridge

Academy Award and multi-GRAMMY® Award-winner Melissa Etheridge returns with her band to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the first time since 2014! Etheridge is a rock legend and one of music’s greatest female icons. Now nearing her 60s, the superstar has conquered the charts, kicked cancer to the curb, won an Oscar, championed LGBT rights, appeared on Broadway (American Idiot), and become a prolific philanthropist (Equality Florida). The fire in her belly still blazes as is evident in her most recent studio release, Medicine Show. This evening will feature Etheridge’s trademark raspy vocals, powerful lyrics and soaring heartland melodies over a range of memorable hits, old and new.

Tickets are $49.50, $69.50, and $99.50.

$135 Pre-show Party Packages are available and include a premium seat, access to party lounge including high-end appetizers, dessert & coffee, plus one beer, wine or soda, beginning 1 1/2 hours prior to show time. Artist does not appear at party.

GRAMMY® Award winning singer-songwriter, actor, and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under”,” Overkill”, “Who Can It Be Now?”) , Colin Hay returns to the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre. Hay is justifiably proud of his place in pop history, having made thirteen critically-acclaimed solo albums, including the highly successful Man at Work, and his latest release, Fierce Mercy. The album explores themes of love and loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting, but always with the singular perspective and insightful wit that define Hay’s work. He has created a new classic in his impressive repertoire, using a palette of pop songcraft, Americana flourishes, and soundtrack-ready strings. Fierce Mercy is animated by its pensive, honest, and impassioned lyrics, and by a sense of urgency felt deeply in the song “The Last to Know,” which introduces the album’s title concept of “fierce mercy.”

Tickets are $29.50, $39.50, $54.50, and $69.50.
