Sia’s Nostalgic for the Present: A Tour of It’s Own

Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler will bring her Nostalgic for the Present Tour to the Frank Erwin Center on Nov. 6, 2016. This marks the pop singer’s first time on the road in five years and her first-ever arena tour. Sia has chosen Austin, TX as the final city of her highly anticipated 23-date tour.

As we prepare for her first appearance at the Erwin Center, we are struck by the unique qualities associated with this artist and her performance. Here are a few reasons this tour is truly unique, and why you don’t want to miss it.

She has been a singer-songwriter for over two decades. The Grammy-Nominated, Multiplatinum, Global Superstar has sold over 30 million records in the last four years alone, but before embarking on the current season of her career, she wrote songs for Rihanna, Beyoncé, David Guetta, Kanye West, Britney Spears and Katy Perry, just to name a few.
