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 – 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.
