Performance Recap: Melissa Etheridge at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater on April 29, 2010

There was laughter when the MCs jokingly introduced Justin Bieber at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater last night, but the theater roared with the applause of 200 die-hard fans when they really announced who was coming to the stage: Melissa Etheridge. Many had won tickets on the radio or through Melissa’s fan club; others had won on the P.C. Richard Theater website; and more won across our Facebook, Twitter, and blog pages. The theater is more like an intimate club: there is no seating and only about 20 rows of standing room. The artists are easily reachable. Many were impressed at just how close they got to their favorite singer.
