    Default Sia

    Can we just talk about how amazing it's going to be to hear Sia's amazing voice wash over the main stage field?
    CoS says it's her first full show on American soil in over half a decade.

    Pretty sure it's her first full show anywhere in that long? Not really sure what to expect, but it should be amazing. Hopefully she'll still do at least a few older songs. Even though the kids these days probably don't even know Breathe Me.

    Lol good bet, I'm sure. I don't mind interpretive dancing in the least, but the wig thing bugs the heck out of me. I get why she does it, but I prefer pre-wigged out Sia.

    I am down to see her regardless, but I do also hope she throws some older material into the mix!

    Yeah, I'm expecting an expansion on what she did on Jimmy Kimmel a while back. Doesn't matter much to me as my eyes will be closed to fully absorb the spacetime-ripping vocals Sia will provide.



    But this one always kills me the best. At 4:20 you'll hear my favorite sing/yell/cry of all time. Fucking crushing.

    Also, can we have Sia close the Mojave while Calvin Harris is on the main stage? I'll accept the Outdoor as well, but then I'll have to make sure I'm very close to a speaker to prevent sound bleed.

    This will be one of the highlights of my weekend. For the newcomers, Sia has not always worn those crazy wigs.

    Also- "The Girl You Lost To Cocaine" will be the best thing at Coachella 2016 if she plays it and all the E boys wonder what happened to their girls the night before when the meth was flowing for GnR.

    i saw sia perform at the hollywood bowl in october 2014. it was magic.

    if she performs "breath me" that will likely be my favorite part of the weekend.

    I saw her some time ago at the El Rey and she was just charming as hell. Was so blown away by the reception. At one point she referenced her earlier job as a nanny in Los Angeles before she started writing songs, and towards the end of the show she brought up the children she used to care for and they sang with her. I think I remember there being a lot of flowers and pixies and shit too.

    She was great at Coachella 2008 and All Points West. Been waiting for her to return. I don't mind her current persona with the wig and all that because she seemed to have gone through some dark times in which she could've ended her life. It's nice to have her back performing shows and writing tunes for herself as opposed for other pop stars.

    I have a feeling that the Sia you are getting this year is not really the Sia anyone has seen in the past.

    Considering she's the second-billed artist on her day, I don't see her playing a tent. Didn't she also do a collaboration with Calvin Harris? I think the chances are greater that she'll make an appearance during his set than that she'll conflict with him. Has a headliner ever conflicted with the first artist listed on the second line? I know that the Knife played the Outdoor in 2014, but they finished before Outkast started.

    yeah, she's way too big right now to play a tent too. Main stage for sure.

    Yes, that's my username on Sia's hand. I had the same handle on her long defunct message board. She greeted her boardies from the stage.

    Yep, hence why I'm not excited for Sia lately.

    Gone are the 'Drink to Get Drunk', 'Little Man', and the Zero 7 days.

    Those days ended a long time ago. They were good days, but I think Sia's doing amazing things now as well.

    She's phenomenal, I worked at an event she performed three songs at and her voice was just as incredible live.

    My lady and I were blubbering messes by the end of her set back in 2010. She makes it hurt so good.
