Sia has been very vocal about her struggles with stage fright and touring, but in an interview with NME she admitted that it¡¯s becoming increasingly difficult to maintain her hardline stance of not playing live.
¡°I¡¯m seeing some crazy numbers,¡± she says, speaking about offers on the table ¡±When they keep coming I¡¯m like, ¡®is it worth it now?¡¯ because it could mean that I don¡¯t ever have to do anything again.¡±
It¡¯s not all about the money, though ¨C if Sia is going to tour, it¡¯s going to be on her terms. ¡±I don¡¯t care about doing it so I¡¯ll throw the most ludicrous idea out and say say ¡®I¡¯ll do a live show if you can get Olivia Newton John to perform with me¡¯, because that¡¯s my childhood dream¡ I¡¯m working out ways to make it fun. I guess there¡¯s a number, if I¡¯m worth that number then I¡¯ll go out on tour.¡±
Whether or not she hits the road, her record 1000 Forms of Fear brought her international notoriety and included some of the year¡¯s biggest songs, including lead single ¡®Chandelier¡¯. Sia hasn¡¯t toured since 2011 and has never performed any promotion for her latest record outside of innovative TV performances.
