Melissa Etheridge has announced she will embark on a tour of North American Tour this fall to promote her forthcoming album, 4th Street Feeling. The veteran singer-songwriter will perform at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, October 21. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $36.25 to $101.25, will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster.

4th Street Feeling, Etheridge’s eleventh studio effort and first since 2010’s Fearless Love, will hit stores on September 4. The first single on the album, “Falling Up”, will be available on iTunes beginning August 7. Etheridge wrote twelve new songs for the album, which features Blair Sinta on drums, Brett Simons on bass, and Zac Rae on keyboards. Recorded in Los Angeles at HOB Studios, 4th Street Feeling was produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) and Steve Booker (Duffy), and co-produced by Etheridge.

In addition to her recording career, Etheridge hosts “The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show,” syndicated through Benztown Radio Networks. In late 2011, she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and this fall, will be honored by the National Women’s Museum of Art in Washington D.C. with her inclusion in the exhibition, “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power.”
