Melissa Etheridge is coming to Blues on Broadbeach 2024!

Coming back to Australia for the first time in years, we’re thrilled to welcome blues-rock genre bending icon Melissa Etheridge for her only show in Queensland!


Headlining the 23rd annual Blues on Broadbeach which will be held from 16 – 19 May 2024, Melissa is set to rock the festival stage for the first time as part of her ‘I’m Not Broken’ tour.


“I am thrilled to announce that I’m now joining the Blues on Broadbeach lineup, and sharing the stage with some amazing international, Australian and New Zealand artists. This is my only Queensland show, and I am excited to be playing this iconic blues festival. I’ll be bringing my full live show down under, for the first time in 5 years, and I’m looking forward to seeing all my Australian fans in 2024!”.

As one of blues rock music’s greatest female icons, the two-time Grammy winner has cemented her rock royalty status with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as multiple platinum albums, an Academy Award and an Honorary Doctor of Music Degree from Berklee.


Whilst her many accolades has garnered worldwide recognition, any Melissa Etheridge fan will tell you that her smoky vocals, confessional lyrics and down to earth personality is what makes her so endearing as a performer.


Recognised many times over for her skill with a six string, Melissa stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album which featured iconic tracks like ‘Bring Me Some Water’ and ‘Like the Way I Do’ that will no doubt make a welcomed appearance on the Blues on Broadbeach stage.

But her talents aren’t just limited on rock stages. From her incredible Broadway show to a best-selling memoir, Melissa has not only continuously demonstrated her musical talent but also the ups and downs of her life as an artist and activist. 


We can’t wait to welcome Melissa back to Australia in what’s sure to be an incredible show. And the best part? Melissa Etheridge’s show is non-ticketed, along with a whole heap of incredible artists on the Blues on Broadbeach lineup
