On July 23, 2024 the San Diego Symphony will present Jewel & Melissa Etheridge at San Diego’s The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park as part of their co-headlining 19-city tour. Tickets go on sale today for this popular show. Etheridge’s co-headlining tour with Jewel will kick off July 11 in Bonner, Montana. After Etheridge and the “You Were Meant For Me” artist play San Diego, then it’s off to Las Vegas at the Pearl Theater on July 24 and at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood on July 26. Jewel and Etheridge will briefly part ways for most of August as the “Like the Way I Do” artist will play a series of concerts in the Midwest and East Coast with the folk-rock duo Indigo Girls, who will appear at The Rady Shell with Amos Lee on September 19.

Jewel went from a girl who grew up with no running water on an Alaskan homestead, to a homeless teenager in San Diego, to an award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist who released one of the best-selling debuts of all time. Throughout her three-decade-long career Jewel has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and has earned 26 nominations for such awards as the GRAMMY® Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and Country Music Association Awards. Jewel has been featured on the covers of Time and Rolling Stone, and has performed on Saturday Night Live, at the Super Bowl and the NBA Finals, for the Pope and the President of the United States.

Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 GRAMMY® Awards show. Her popularity grew around such memorable originals as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy,” for which she won a GRAMMY® in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993). The collection featured the hits, “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second GRAMMY® Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, including the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996.
