Macy Gray returns to Hamer Hall to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of On How Life Is

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of her landmark and critically acclaimed debut album, On How Life Is, the multi award-winning Macy Gray will return to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on 7 July 2024.

Synonymous with incredible, sleek music, Macy Gray broke into the music scene in 1999 with an album that would come to speak to a generation. The triple-platinum album, On How Life Is turned Gray into a R&B and soul powerhouse, receiving the GRAMMY® Award for Best Pop Vocal Performance in 2000 for her iconic song “I Try” and receiving two BRIT Awards. Now a five-time GRAMMY® Nominee, Gray has amassed a devoted global fan base and sold over 25 million total albums around the world.

Alongside her Hamer Hall performance, Gray will tour around Australia including performances in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and more.


I’m over the moon to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of my debut album On How Life Is. First stop: Down Under! Me and the band will be live in Hobart, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Wyong, Canberra and Thirroul in July. Please join me for a big nite to remember.

Promoter David M. Hawkins:

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. 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.
