LUCY LAWLESS -- LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress Lucy Lawless is good with a sword. Now, she’ll take a stab at singing.
The 38-year-old actress, best known for her role as “Xena: Warrior Princess,” will make her rock concert debut at a sold-out show Saturday night at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood.
Lawless recently appeared on Fox’s “Celebrity Duets” and performed with music icons Smokey Robinson and Dionne Warwick. The appearances left her inspired to start her own singing career.
“I’ve become a junkie for live performance,” she said in a statement. “I can’t get enough and I can’t give enough.”
Lawless plans to sing some of her own songs as well as those of Etta James, Nina Simone and Melissa Etheridge.
