It was an eventful birthday for Missy this year. As she was in the USA she actually celebrated it twice – once when it was August 19 Australian time and then the following day when that date arrived in America. On the first of these birthdays she performed “Scar” on the Craig Ferguson TV show before playing a sold out show at famous L.A. club The Troubadour. Check out an exclusive pic of the Craig Ferguson show here and of the Troubadour show here. Half way through the show, the capacity crowd at the Troubadour launched into a rousing version of “Happy Birthday”, prompting the embarrassed singer/songwriter to try to hide behind her keyboard. The following morning Missy flew out to the Colorado Folks Festival in order to see one of her favourite artists – Patty Griffin – perform live. Missy had the rest of the day off before appearing on that same festival on the next evening.

In another birthday treat Missy (who is now officially 22 no matter where you live) awoke to the news that she had sold over 20,000 tickets to her forthcoming Australian shows in their first day on sale. For more information about these gigs please check out the tour section on this site.
