On Monday her album “The Sound Of White” debuted at #1 on the Australian charts.
On Tuesday a bunch of dates on her October national tour sold out and extra shows had to be added to her touring schedule.
On Wednesday Missy accepted the Finn Brothers invitation to join them as special guest on their Australian tour in November. They also asked her to join them for shows that month in London and Auckland.
Today – Thursday – her album was certified platinum.
It was also announced today that Missy is one of the final five nominees for “Best Video”, “Best Single”, “Best Pop Release” and “Best Female Artist” at this year’s ARIA Awards. She will perform live on the prestigious award show when it is broadcast on October 17.
