Melissa Etheridge 

When: Mon., July 26, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $37–$102

That earliest assessment, dating back to when Melissa Etheridge first hit the scene rocking and raspy and requesting that someone bring her some water, was hard to contest; she was, after all, a proud Bruce Springsteen fan with more than a little Janis Joplin in her soul. It still rings true, underscored by memorable performances of that pair's most iconic recordings. Etheridge's searing delivery of "Piece of My Heart" was the highlight of the 2005 Grammy Awards, and she more recently paid tribute to Springsteen with a characteristically throat-blistering take on "Born to Run" at the Kennedy Center Honors Awards. —Rick Cornell
