AP Wire | 01/13/2007 | Lawless to take stab at singing with Hollywood performance
LOS ANGELES - 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.

Someplace on the internets, there must be that clip from years ago, where she falls out of her top while singing the national anthem at a Detroit Red Wings game. Maybe she'll wear the same outfit for her concerts.

Truth be known, she's not a bad singer. She was always doing some singing when she was playing "Xena" and she played Rizzo on Broadway in a production of Grease (then again, who hasn't). That said, I still prefer her as a Cylon on Battlestar Galactica.

That concert is going to be a meat market for her lesbian followers. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
