Macy Gray: Shepherds Bush Empire, London ***

Adam Sweeting, Guardian, The, 21 May 2003

HER RECORD COMPANY had spent the day warning everybody that she would be on stage at 9pm, not 9.15pm as advertised, but in the end Macy Gray finally tottered from the wings at 9.35pm. Perhaps it was all part of her back-to-the-1970s vibe, when dangly earrings and an afro the size of an H-bomb were all the rage, and concerts never started on time.

Total word count of piece: 378
