Melanie Dyer

Thu 5 September at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Award-winning Australian Country Music star Melanie Dyer has announced her National HAD TO BE THERE tour.

Country star Melanie Dyer has been having quite the year in 2024, from singing a new management deal with Footstomp & Kadence Group, releasing her latest single “Had To Be There,” and having it stay in the Countrytown Top 10 charts for a month, to currently writing and performing throughout Nashville in and around the CMA’s. To follow up on the incredible run she’s been having, Melanie announces the “Had To Be There” single tour, which includes 11 shows across the east coast of Australia.

An authentic artist with equal love for country and pop genres, Dyer wraps conversational stories in undeniably pop hooks and attracts a fan base that borders the two worlds. Bursting onto the country scene in 2015 with her debut EP, Lifetime, the Australian artist/songwriter has been making waves since. Since then, Melanie has become a regular across the country charts in Australia, with her single “Memphis T-Shirt” enjoying 6 weeks at #1 on The Music Network’s Country Hot 50 Chart and #1 on CMC.

Set times:

Doors open: 6pm

Main Act: 7:30pm
