MELISSA ETHERIDGE
AND LEANN RIMES
TULALIP RESORT CASINO
AMPHITHEATRE
July 14


Summer reminds me of outdoor concerts; magical nights under the stars seeing music artists that I have enjoyed for decades. This was my first visit to the Tulalip Amphitheatre, and my second time in three years seeing Gay Icon Melissa Etheridge. Last time the venue was at the Woodland Park Zoo in 2015 and the opening act was Blondie, but this time Etheridge brought LeAnn Rimes to get the show going.

Rimes, 36, came out wearing her 'Daisy Duke' ripped jean shorts, and a nude colored tank top that made her look & nude.

Rimes came out singing 'Love Line' and 'One Way Ticket' and went directly into her classic, Patsy Cline inspired, 'Blue.' This song was a big hit for Rimes in 1994, who was 14 at the time. As a fitting tribute to her inspiration from Cline, Rimes then sang a Cline medley, which included classics like 'Crazy' and 'Sweet Dreams.'

Rimes pledged her support for the LGBTQ community with her 2016 song from her Remnants album, 'Love is Love is Love.'

Then came her biggest hit, 'How Do I Live,' in the middle of her set and then about four songs later that included, 'The Bottle Let Me Down,' 'Learning Your Language,' 'Life Goes On' and 'Can't Fight the Moonlight.'

Despite the differences in music genre such as country to pop to blues, Rimes hasn't decided what she wants to do; one thing for sure is nobody does Patsy Cline better.

After a brief set change, Melissa Etheridge, 57, dressed like the rebel she is, with dark jeans, black leather jacket and light scarf, made her first appearance playing drums and then switched over to guitar and sang 'No Souvenirs.' After switching guitars again she sang 'I Take You With Me.'

After playfully talking about passion and love, she performed her hit, 'I Want to Come Over.' She played a different guitar for each song that she sang, from electric to acoustic; I believe that I counted 7 or 8 in all.

More songs came from 'My Lover,' 'All the Way to Heaven,' 'Dance Without Sleeping,' Yes I Am,' 'Ruins,' 'Talking to My Angel,' and 'Chrome Plated Heart.'

Then came two of her biggest hits, 'Come to My Window' and 'I'm the Only One,' that are also my faves, along with her 1989 song, 'Bring Me Some Water,' that was sandwiched in between. This song was sensational and the beat felt like I was possessed closing my eyes listening to the beat.

After 'I'm the Only One' Etheridge threw her guitar pick to one audience member and bowed with her bandmates. Then Etheridge returned with an encore of 'Like the Way I Do.' She performed an incredible drum solo, threw those drum sticks to the audience, and then returned on a shiny new silver guitar and then threw that guitar pick to the audience to end the concert.

Etheridge is an incredible performer and is so genuine that her passion for her craft is visible. An Etheridge concert is never to be missed.
