Missy Higgins Tours North America

Published: 2008-06-23
Aussie songstress Missy Higgins will be on the road in North America this summer. The singer-songwriter released her first album The Sound of White to both critical and commercial success in Australia in 2004. It took home several ARIA Awards, Australia's version of the Grammys or Junos, including best Female Artist and Song Of The Year for her hit single "Scar". Her sophomore album On A Clear Night also fared very well in her home country hitting the top of the charts and scooping her up yet another ARIA for Best Female Artist.

Though she's a bonafide pop star down under, Higgins has only begun to make a splash in North America and in order to concentrate on the US market she has temporarily relocated to Los Angeles. The move has helped her songs gain spots on American TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, Smallville, The Hills, and One Tree Hill.

Higgins recently wrapped up a tour with Brett Dennen and Mason Jennings and she's already set to hit the road again. This summer's headlining tour of the Midwest and Northeast will be opened by Eric Hutchinson. Included in those stops are a couple in Canada. Here are the details for her Canadian shows:

July 23, Toronto, ON The Phoenix
July 24, Montreal, QC Les Saints
