Macy Gray mistakes Perth for Sydney during her fail DJ set

She famously crooned about choking on her words when it came to saying ‘goodbye’ to her lover.

But Grammy Award-winning artist Macy Gray missed the mark when it came to saying ‘hello’ this Wednesday after accidentally addressing her audience by the wrong location.   

The 50-year-old singer-songwriter was in Perth a DJ set at the Astor Theatre, but welcomed the crowd by saying ‘hello Sydney’ after arriving two hours late.

According to The West Australian fans were unhappy with the mix-up, prompting some to even walk out.

She reportedly sang two songs and performed several cover songs on the DJ decks for around half an hour before walking off stage. 

Meanwhile, disappointed ticket-holders have taken to the Facebook page of the venue and concert promoters to demand refunds.

One wrote: ‘Very deceiving as the description makes it sound she will be performing (not lip syncing/getting the audience to sing instead) too.’

‘What a disgrace! Also, I would hardly call that DJing! And didn’t hear any R&B… she was also on the stage for 30 minutes,’ they continued.

Another said: ‘We didn’t pay $80 a ticket to watch Macy Gray stumble onto the stage two hours late, scratch some records, lip sync badly to two songs and stumble off the stage again’.

‘The way it works is, you refund our money to us, and then get your money back from her! Please let us all know when this is going to happen,’ the concert-goer demanded.

Not happy! Meanwhile, disappointed ticket-holders have taken to the Facebook page of the venue and concert promoters to demand refunds

Concert promoter TnT Presents have been forced to released a statement on their Facebook page, formally apologising to upset ticket-holders about Gray’s DJ set. 

‘We as the promoter of The Macy Gray DJ Set event at the Astor Theatre in Perth would like to formally apologise to ticket holders that feel Macy Gray didn’t meet their expectations,’ the post read.  

‘The Event was promoted as a Live DJ Set on the Astor Theatre website as well as Ticketek.’

‘Unfortunately, as the promoter it is up to the artist to create their own show not ourselves.’

‘At this stage we are talking with Macy Gray’s manager.’
