The enigmatic Aussie is taking her show on the road!
After teasing some big news last week, Sia delivered this morning announcing a 22-date tour across North America, in support of her latest album ‘This is Acting’. The ‘Nostalgic for the Present’ tour kicks off in Seattle on September 29th and makes its way across the U.S. and Canada, before winding down in Austin, Texas on November 6th.
Sia will be joined by opening acts Miguel and Aluna George.

This will be Sia’s first tour since 2011 when she considered retiring from performing altogether. She has limited her live appearances to performances on television since then, reportedly because she suffers from panic attacks. She told NME last year that there were offers on the table to go on tour and that if she received an offer that was tempting enough, she just might have to take it: “I guess there’s a number, if I’m worth that number then I’ll go out on tour.” Looks like she found her magic number!
We will have to wait and see if she will continue her tradition of covering her face with wigs for the entirety of the tour, and if regular collaborator Maddie Ziegler will make an appearance. Either way, if her extremely well-received Coachella performance is anything to go by, she’ll certainly put on one hell of a show.
