Grammy- and Oscar-winning American rock singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge has been added to the Tanglewood 2013 line-up, bringing her mixture of personal lyrics, pop-based folk-rock and smoky vocals to the Shed on Friday, June 21, 2013, at 7 p.m.
Tanglewood will also present the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration, a new symphonic project celebrating American musical icon Jerry Garcia, featuring Warren Haynes with the Boston Pops under the direction of Keith Lockhart on Saturday, June 22, 2013, at 8.30 p.m. in the Shed. This ground-breaking orchestral adventure will feature new orchestral arrangements of Jerry Garcia’s storied original compositions as well as classic interpretations of timeless standards that were hallmarks of Garcia’s shows. Powerhouse vocalist and guitarist Warren Haynes (The Allman Brothers Band, the Dead, and Gov’t Mule) will collaborate with the symphony, lending his soul-soaked, introspective blend of rock, blues, R&B, and jazz to Garcia’s masterworks.
Tickets for Melissa Etheridge on June 21 range from $23.50 to $69.50. Tickets for the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration on June 22 range from $23.50 to $79. All tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 27, at www.tanglewood.org, by calling 888-266-1200, or at the Symphony Hall box office in Boston, MA. All ticket prices include a $2 Tanglewood grounds maintenance fee.
