Melissa Etheridge is in for a big summer on the road. So big, in fact, that she’s grabbing friends to help. The 53-year-old will embark on a 50-city tour starting June 10 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. For some of the stops, ’70s new wave rockers Blondie will share the limelight; interestingly, each artist will close out about half of the 10 shows they play together. (Per Etheridge’s website, Joan Jett is only tapped for the July 20 show in Spokane, Washington.)

Before all that starts, though, a new concert film—A Little Bit Of Me: Live In L.A.—hits stores June 9. So if you can’t catch Etheridge perform before the tour ends on Aug. 30, then there’s a decent consolation Blu-ray that’s cheaper and crowd-free. Settling!
