TICKETS ON SALE STARTING 7TH JUNE
Amidst growing speculation, it was this morning confirmed that global superstar SIA will descend on Australia and New Zealand later this year to play exclusive stadium performances in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland.
Announcing her only live dates for 2017, Sia has revealed she will bring her spectacular NOSTALGIC FOR THE PRESENT TOUR to two Australian stadiums this year – Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Thursday 30th November, Sydney’s Allianz Stadium on Saturday 2nd December – and one show in New Zealand at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on 5th December.
Sia headlines a stellar all-female lineup in an Australian exclusive, which will see the hit maker team up with Charli XCX, MØ and Amy Shark, three of the most exciting artists on the global music stage.
A multi-platinum artist, songwriter and international icon, Sia last toured Australia in 2011 to wide acclaim. Since then, she has shot to superstardom, becoming one of the most influential and prolific artists in the world. She has collaborated with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé and David Guetta, has penned songs for Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Camila Cabello, and more, chalking up accolades including multiple Grammy Award nominations, and building a dedicated army of fans across the world, all the while maintaining an air of enigma and mystery that only adds to her allure.
The global pop sensation dazzled audiences with her unique live show at last year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, with TIME calling the performance “one of the festival’s best.”
“This year has featured some huge pop spectacles… but none as creatively captivating as what Sia is doing onstage in 2016. For an artist not prone to sprawling tours, Sia fully understands how to make the live experience feel vital.” – Billboard
Sia’s performances will feature hit songs from her chart-topping, Gold certified 2016 album, This Is Acting, alongside iconic anthems from her previous releases; ‘Chandelier’, ‘Elastic Heart’, ’Clap Your Hands’ and more.
The most-streamed female artist on Spotify last year, Sia’s accolades continue to build; currently 4x Platinum, ‘Cheap Thrills’ was the No.4 most-played single at radio in 2016, and the most-played song by an Australian artist at radio last year. Singles ‘Elastic Heart’ and ‘The Greatest’ have chalked up 3x Platinum and 2x Platinum certification respectively in Australia, while 1000 Forms Of Fear, Sia’s 2014 studio album, shot straight to the top of the ARIA Album Chart on release and has achieved Platinum accreditation.
Maddie Ziegler, the New York Times best-selling author and enthralling young dancer that stars in five of Sia’s music videos, will join the artist on her Australian dates. She performed at the 2015 Grammy Awards for Sia alongside actress Kristen Wiig, has danced live on a swathe of US television programs including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Saturday Night Live and more, and featured alongside Shia LaBeouf in Sia’s 2015 ‘Elastic Heart’ video. Ziegler will next be seen in Focus Features’ THE BOOK OF HENRY alongside Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay as well as the animated feature LEAP! alongside Elle Fanning and Kate McKinnon.
Shooting to stardom with collaborations and co-writes with the likes of Icona Pop, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX has become a force in the global pop landscape. She is a multi-platinum artist, has toured with Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, Coldplay and more, and following the smash hit ‘After The Afterparty’, her latest hit single ‘3AM (Pull Up)’, featuring MØ, is currently making waves around the world.
Danish singer-songwriter MØ is one of music’s fastest rising pop stars, and the co-writer and voice of the worldwide smash Major Lazer tracks ‘Cold Water’ and ‘Lean On’ – two of the most-streamed songs ever. A formidable live performer, MØ is currently putting the finishing touches to her eagerly anticipated second album, due for release in 2017 and set to feature her global hit ‘Final Song’ and current single ‘Nights With You’.
Local indie-pop wunderkind Amy Shark propelled into the spotlight when she landed at No.2 on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2016, with her dark pop anthem ‘Adore’. Her Night Thinker EP last month claimed a No.2 ARIA Album Chart debut, and she is on an epic upward trajectory. With her August headline tour, including four Corner Hotel and three Oxford Art Factory shows close to sold out, this will be fans’ final chance to see Amy Shark on the concert stage this year and is not to be missed.
Global pop sensation, multi-platinum selling superstar, ARIA Award winner and 5x Grammy nominated singer-songwriter; Sia will blow audiences away with her unmistakable vocals and captivating live show when she lands in Melbourne and Sydney later this year. Don’t miss your chance to experience Sia live on her only Australian tour dates this November and December!
