Sia + Miguel + AlunaGeorge

  • Music, Pop

Time Out says

Though she was once best known for writing songs like "Diamonds" for Rihanna and "Pretty Hurts" for Beyoncé, Sia has become a pop star in her own right since the release of her breakout single "Chandelier" in 2014. Now, the notoriously camera shy singer (hence the oversized wigs) has taken to blending performance art with glitzy balladry, putting dancer Maddie Ziegler in the spotlight both onstage and in various music videos.

Sia's live performances have been rare, but her upcoming Nostalgic for the Present Tour will bring the Australian artist to arenas around the country, including the United Center. Don't expect to see much of Sia—if her Coachella set is any indication, she'll sing from the side of the stage while dancers and visual artists provide the eye candy. Collaborations with opening acts Miguel and AlunaGeorge don't seem out of the question either—maybe she'll write a song for each of them?

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, May 20.
