Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow announce joint tour

Sheryl Crow and Melissa Etheridge will perform in a double headlining tour across Australia in 2018.

Australian audiences will be the first to see these two acclaimed singers touring together with what promises to be a powerhouse show that will feature all the biggest hits from both of these amazing performers.

A nine-time Grammy Award winner Sheryl Crow has sold over 50 million albums and this will be Sheryl’s first visit to Australia since 2008. Academy Award and two-time Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge last toured Australia in 2016 and received rave reviews for her performances.

They will both be performing at the Byron Bay Bluesfest 2018 before commencing their tour in Perth on the 3 April, 2018. Tickets on will go on sale 10.00am, Monday, 18 December through Ticketek.

The two longtime friends famously met in the 1980s during the Michael Jackson BAD tour when Sheryl was one of his backup singers. They went on to forge a friendship based on mutual admiration and understanding of their respective careers but also shared similar battles along the way – most notably they are both cancer survivors.

They have each created music that has defined their musical era – from Sheryl Crow’s all American classic hits All I Wanna Do and The First Cut Is The Deepest to Melissa Etheridge’s groundbreaking Bring Me Some Water and Come To My Window.

Sheryl Crow said she was excited about the upcoming tour.

“It’s been way too long since I was in Australia! Am so excited to be touring with my dear friend, Melissa Etheridge! We are going to have a great time and play some great music! Looking forward to seeing all our friends and fans in April,” said Crow said.

While Melissa Etheridge said she couldn’t wait to be back in Australia.

“I always have a good time when we play in Australia and this will be no exception. See you in 2018 Australia! Sheryl and I can’t wait to get down there and play some great music!” Etheridge said.
