Melissa Etheridge is set for a 25-date spring tour. Etheridge, who'll be touring behind her 2019 release The Medicine Show, kicks things off on March 26th at Waukegan, Illinois' Genesee Theatre, with the primarily Eastern jaunt wrapping on May 1st at Clearwater, Florida's Ruth Eckerd Hall.

Melissa Etheridge says that luckily, her pipes are not only intact, but these days, she's actually singing better than ever: ["I think my voice is in better shape than it's ever been. I think I've learned how to take care of my body and that makes my voice stronger. I really didn't get that when I was younger. And just sort of wisdom through the years; you can just sort of reach into that on the performances."] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC: . . . on the performances)

Although Etheridge is still able to release new music and have it sell and chart highly, these days that's the last thing she concentrates on regarding her career: ["I can look at charts. I can look at things and go 'OK, what does that mean?' The only thing I know is the people that come to see me live. Then I know 'Oh, this is good. This is fun. This is powerful.' As long as people want to come and see me live, then I have a place. All the other stuff I don't really get."] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . don't really get)
