Amy Shark apologizes for causing havoc in cities during an unpleasant musical blunder.
Amy Shark, an Australian singer, has spoken out following the revelation of an embarrassing brain fade during a recent show.
Amy Shark has issued an apology for mispronouncing the name of an Australian city during a recent performance.
The 35-year-old singer recently performed in Brisbane as part of her nationwide Cry Forever tour, but in a video circulating on TikTok, she unintentionally opened her act with, “Hey Gold Coast.”
Shark promptly corrected her error, exclaiming, “Brisbane… F**k (the) Gold Coast.”
The Gold Coast-born Everybody Rise singer expressed her delight that the uncomfortable tape made its way to the internet, calling it “one of my finest moments on stage.”
She subsequently apologized on Instagram to her hometown followers for “throwing them under the bus” in an attempt to rectify the error.
“The Gold Coast” “I apologize for swearing at you; I was experiencing a mild panic episode,” Shark explained in an Instagram video. “I threw you under the bus, which I should not have done because you are my hometown and I adore you; kindly pardon me.”
Shark, real name Amy Billings, then appealed with her fans to vote for her at the forthcoming ARIA awards for Best Live Act.
“This year, I’ve been nominated for best live act; it’s an incredible honor for everyone on the team and in the band; if you like the Cry Forever gigs, please vote,” she said.
“I am human, gentlemen, and occasionally I am a hot mess, but that does not mean I love you any less.”
Shark, who recently collaborated with Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban on the song Love Songs Ain’t For Us, rose to prominence in Australia with her 2016 single Adore, which peaked at number two on the Triple J Hottest 100.
Since then, she has won eight ARIA Music Awards from a total of 22 nominations, including three times for Best Pop Release in 2017, 2018, and 2020.
Shark is nominated for six ARIA Awards, which will be held on November 24.
