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. The artists are easily reachable. Many were impressed at just how close they got to see their favorite singer.

Melissa performed 5 songs: No Souvenirs, Fearless Love, Stay With Me, The Wanting, and Like the Way I Do. Stay With Me was a cover of a song also covered by Bette Midler. “All last summer on my solo tour, I would do a solo song. I did all kinds of things, everything from songs I used to do when I was little, to songs I’d never sung, to songs I loved. I think the one song that most people really liked was this song,” she explained to the crowd. “It’s from a movie… well, no, it’s actually an old blues song. [sigh] I meant to get the name of the artist who did it, but I didn’t! I’m sure someone will look it up and tell me.” If you ever get a chance, tell Melissa that it was originally performed by Lorainne Ellison.
