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.

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.)
