Tracy Lyons Opens for Blind Melon on Nationwide Tour
Singer-songwriter Tracy Lyons will join the nationwide U.S. Blind Melon tour. The 21-city tour kicks off on October 21 in San Francisco, CA and ends on November 19, 2008 in Boston, MA.
Tracy Lyons is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter whose alternative sound is rooted in classic rock. Backed by a powerful trio of veteran musicians, her songs and performances make an indelible impression.
Since 2001, Tracy has written and released two critically acclaimed albums – 2002’s debut album “Surrender”, followed by 2006’s “I Will” – with songs produced by Juno award winner Greg Kavanagh and Grammy winner KC Porter. Singles from both albums drew national radio attention and led to tour dates opening for a wide range of veteran artists. In 2004, Lyons headlined the innovative “SHOW” festival, an entertainment-powered educational tour sponsored by Toyota and other alternative energy companies, which established her as an activist for environmental health and global warming. This cause is very personal for Tracy due to her own health issues related to the environment.
Tracy recently released “Save Me,” a powerful environmental music video on YouTube, and currently it has captured over 600,000 plays. Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Treehugger, Earth Day Network, Apple Quicktime and other sites also profiled the video. In addition to touring, Lyons is currently writing her third album.

About Blind Melon:
Blind Melon originally formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California, when five transplants from other states crossed paths. Multi-platinum selling, and responsible for some of the most memorable and pure-sounding rock music of the ’90s, Blind Melon are poised to pick up exactly where they left off a decade earlier – as evidenced by their new full-length release entitled “For My Friends” released April 22, 2008.
