Macy Gray – ‘I Try’

Me and the band will be live in Hobart, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Wyong, Canberra and Thirroul in July.

Similarly enthusiastic is the tour’s promoter, David M. Hawkins, who expressed about her tour. “Last July I was in Los Angeles and dropped into see Macy while she was rehearsing for her European tour. I couldn’t wait to put an idea to her and see if she was into it. I suggested we make our third Australian tour together a celebration of her multi-platinum album On How Life Is for its upcoming 25th anniversary, and do the entire album, live in a new show.

He said about Macy Gray, “She immediately jumped at the idea and our creative jam started. “That album is now a classic and held many hit singles for a generation, including the massive worldwide number one I Try. We will celebrate her incredible breakthrough album whilst also featuring hits from the many follow-up albums. I believe Macy is one of the greatest artists of our generation, she is so prolific with her writing and recording. This show is not to be missed, by anyone who knows the album and its star.”

Fans can expect Gray and her band to perform “On How Life Is” in its entirety, followed by a selection of hits from her extensive 12-album career, including her latest release, “The Reset,” which debuted in February 2023.
