In March Australian audiences will finally be able to witness this enigmatic artist when she performs in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide as well as appearing live at this year’s MTV Music Awards on her first ever Australian tour.
Graceful and emotive but quirky and charming her unique voice has garnered her a reputation as a stunning performer and acclaim that stretches far outside the limits of her hometown of Adelaide. This Adelaide pop superstar whose smoky voice and glorious songcraft have captivated the world, and will do the same for Australia audiences. After initially relocating to the UK Sia settled in New York where she has been quietly collecting a legion of fans. Audiences have been captivated by Sia’s the lazy tempos and shuffling beats that combine with her smoky voice and mesmerising personality to produce her own seductive brand of dysfunction.

She’s enchanted full houses across America with her bright, cheerful humour, a brass-plated voice, and some damn fine songs. Exploding on stages bursting with colour and fun, Sia’s live shows are like child’s fluorescent drawing coming to life, her songs jumping around and dancing their way into your head.
The compelling power of Sia’s distinctive brand of music has been confirmed in accolades and praise – Grammy nomination, Mercury Prize Short list, UK Top 10 single, the second highest watched Youtube video of all time, millions of Myspace views, collaborations with Beck and Christina Aguilera, soundtrack appearances on Six Feet Under, Garden State and Sex and the City and exuberant admiration from the likes of Perez Hilton and Kayne West.With a voice so enchanting that if she didn’t seem so innocent you’d swear she’d made a deal with the devil audiences across the globe are flocking to see her play, now its time for Australia to find out what all the fuss is about. Sia is determined to make her debut Australian tour one of the events of the season, with a unique performance for the MTV Music Awards in Sydney, as well as stunning gigs in select capital cities.
