US rocker Melissa Etheridge has announced she will be back on the road touring across Australia next year, kicking things off in Perth.

The Grammy-award-winner will set off on her I’m Not Broken Tour on May 10 at Perth’s Riverside Theatre, before moving through to Adelaide on May 12, Melbourne on May 15, and finishing up in Sydney’s Darling Harbour on May 17.

Fresh from an incredible year, Etheridge — known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals — made a triumphant return to headline Broadway with her show, My Window, as well as releasing another best-selling memoir, Talking To My Angels.

This latest tour will allow fans to be dazzled by memorable hits like, I’m The Only One, Like The Way I Do, Come To My Window and Bring Me Some Water.

As well as a walk down memory lane, audiences will get to experience the hits from her latest live album Beautiful Day, which was released on October 13.

Etheridge, who is also a gay icon, was last on an Australian stage in the summer of 2018 for a sold-out tour with another rock powerhouse, Sheryl Crow.

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.

For several years, her popularity grew around original hits and Ain’t It Heavy secured her a Grammy in 1992.

Come to My Window, a searing song of longing brought Etheridge her second Grammy for Best Female Rock Performance the following year.
