MELISSA ETHERIDGE, ‘THE VOICE’ LIVE TOUR JOIN SENECA CASINOS SUMMER RUSH LINEUP Also: Change of venue for Larry the Cable Guy; updated time for John Legend 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.
