GIVEAWAY: Win Tickets to See Melissa Etheridge at Merriam Theater On November 4th

Melissa Ethridge

Last week we had the great pleasure of chatting with music legend and gay icon Melissa Etheridge. She opened up about everything from accidentally becoming a spokesperson for the LGBT community to how she’s taking care of herself post-cancer and connecting with fans when she’s on stage. Expanding on that latter subject, she told us that folks would be smart to bring a change of clothes to her upcoming show at Philly’s Merriam Theater, because, “It’s [going to be] such a hot, smoking, steamy collaboration, people will need to bring a new shirt to wear home because they are going to need it.”

If you don’t have tickets for the show yet, today’s your lucky day. Etheridge was kind enough to give us two pairs of tickets so four of our readers can witness the sweat-inducing performance for themselves. (Sorry, you’ll have to come up with the extra T-shirt on your own.)

Delving into the religious and individual views on marriage and what it means to the gay community, Thomas’s show will make you think, yes, but most importantly it’ll make you LOL.

Eighties pop star, gay icon and the karma chameleon himself, Boy George, is coming to Philadelphia‘s TLA on April 18th to promote his latest album, This is What I Do, and we’ve got five pairs of tickets to give away!

The album is a comeback of sorts for the singer-songwriter, who recently announced he’s on track to beating a longtime drug and alcohol addiction. He’s looking great, sounding fabulous, and the new album — the first all-new studio work since 1995’s Cheapness and Beauty — is getting solid reviews. The Guardian actually called it “the comeback of 2013.”

To win tickets to the show, fill in your name and email in the box below. Each day around 5 p.m. I will randomly choose a winner and email them with info on how to pick up their tickets. Entries get wiped out daily, so be sure to submit every day. You can find details about the show here.
