More Macy Gray More Macy Gray

It has been over 12 years since we saw former chart topping soul songstress Macy Gray on our shores; she was supposed to be here a few years after that first visit but she had to pull the pin, so there are no doubt plenty of people very excited to welcome her to the country once more.

She had her biggest hit way back in 1999 with the smash hit I Try but since then has smashed out a whole bunch of material and this year releases her seventh record, Covered. Yes, it's a selection of covers, but they're pretty interesting ones; Metallica's Nothing Else Matters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Maps, Radiohead's Creep, Arcade Fire's Wake Up , Sublime's Smoke 2 Joints and My Chemical Romance's Teenagers just a few of the choices.

Anyway, she plays these headline shows in September:

Sunday 16 September – Sydney Opera House
Wednesday 19 September – Jupiters Casino, Gold Coast
Thursday 20 September – QPAC, Brisbane
Friday 21 September – Hamer Hall, Melbourne
