International icon, five-time Grammy Award-nominee, and multi-platinum selling artist/songwriter/hitmaker Sia announced her North American Nostalgic For The Present Tour, her first-ever arena tour and return to the road in five years. The 22-city tour, produced by Live Nation, kicks off on Thursday, September 29 in Seattle, WA with special guests Miguel and AlunaGeorge. Sia plays Orlando’s Amway Center on Sunday, October 30.
The unprecedented trek will bring her powerhouse vocals across the continent, offering fans a chance to experience elements from her critically-acclaimed Coachella performances which were heralded as “one of the greatest moments in Coachella’s 17-year history” by Yahoo! Music. “Her set was freakin’ legendary…will blow your mind,” stated Buzzfeed and Time Magazine anointed her performance as “one of the festival’s best.”
Sia released her new album, “This Is Acting,” (Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records) earlier this year to much critical acclaim. The New Yorker described it as “the Platonic ideal of a modern pop album,” with rave reviews across the board from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The Fader, and many more. The album debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 Chart, peaked at number one on the ITunes chart in over 50 countries, and charted Top 10 in eight countries worldwide, including number one in her native Australia and number three in the UK. Currently, Sia’s single, “Cheap Thrills,” is Top Five on Spotify globally and is number one on Shazam’s Global Chart for three consecutive weeks.
Grammy Award-winning recording artist, producer and songwriter Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with his infectious first single, “All I Want Is You,” and “Sure Thing,” which hit number one on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart. His critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award-nominated sophomore album “Kaleidoscope Dream,” featured the intoxicating, “How Many Drinks?,” as well as his third U.S. number one hit single, “Adorn,” which garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at number one on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks, becoming the longest-running number one in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart. Miguel’s critically-acclaimed third studio album, “Wildheart,” released in 2015, claimed the number one spot on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart for the second time and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. The album was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category, and its lead single, “Coffee,” was nominated in the Best R&B Song category.
AlunaGeorge, which is singer/lyricist Aluna Francis and producer George Reid, have barely stopped since they released their 2012 single, “You Know You Like It,” followed by their critically-lauded debut album, “Body Music” in 2013. Last year, DJ Snake’s remix, “You Know You Like It,” became one of the most streamed songs of all time crossing double-platinum in sales with over 85 million YouTube views. The London duo is confirmed to perform at a number of festivals this season including Lollapalooza, HARD Summer, Glastonbury and more. Earlier this year, they released the first single, “I’m In Control,” featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan, from the band’s forthcoming sophomore studio album titled, “I Remember,” to be released this fall via Interscope Records.
