Melissa Etheridge Coming to Salamanca

NIAGARA FALLS and SALAMANCA, N.Y. – The area’s best summer entertainment series just got better. Joining the all-star Summer Rush 2014 lineup at Seneca Casinos are a solo acoustic performance by Melissa Etheridge at Seneca Allegany Events Center on Sunday, June 22 and “The Voice” Live Tour on Friday, July 11 at Seneca Niagara Events Center.

After a sold-out performance of boisterous rock in July 2011, Melissa Etheridge returns to Seneca Allegany Events Center in Salamanca, N.Y. – this time as part of her subdued and acoustic “This Is ME Solo” run of intimate, live shows. She will perform on Sunday, June 22 at 5 p.m.; tickets start at $50 and go on sale Monday, Apr. 21 at noon. Etheridge’s heartfelt lyrics and soulful, raspy voice are the hallmarks of emotional singles such as “Come to My Window,” “I’m the Only One,” “Like the Way I Do” and “I Want to Come Over.” Her latest single, “Uprising of Love,” became the inspiration for a new coalition by the same name that supports the safety and dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Russians. The two-time Grammy Award–winner is also gearing up to release a new solo album this fall.

Seneca Niagara Events Center will be Western New York’s destination for “The Voice” Live Tour as it comes to Niagara Falls on Friday, July 11 for an 8 p.m. performance. Tickets for the tour, presented by CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™, start at $50 and go on sale Thursday, Apr. 17 at 10 a.m. Fans of the hit reality singing competition on NBC will see their favorite contestants from the current sixth season as well as top finalists from past seasons, such as Tessanne Chin, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin from last season. Also joining will be Dia Frampton from Season One; this season’s first-, second- and third-place winners, and; a fan favorite from this season as voted via social media. This season’s finale is slated for May 20.
