What To Wear To Sia's Nostalgic For The Present Tour, If You're All Out Of Ideas
I believe it safe to say that singer songwriter Sia is among the most creative people on Earth. That being said, if you're a fan, you're not going to want to miss out on Sia's Nostalgic for the Present tour, which is sure to be full of surprises and wonderment. Sia will be joined on tour with Miguel and Aluna George and the concert will probably feature a whole host of songs from Sia's latest album This Is Acting – the audience's ears will be in for a treat.
However, there's no doubt in my mind that Nostalgic for the Present will be a spectacle too. Many of Sia's music videos and live performances are like live art, leaving audiences questioning the meaning behind them. Of course, Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler – who's featured in the music videos and live performances of some of Sia's most recent, biggest hits – elevates Sia's music to another level, with her phenomenal dancing and acting abilities. I've got everything crossed in the hopes that Maddie will join Sia on tour, but there's been no official news yet.
If you're going to be in attendance at Nostalgic for the Present, you'll need something really awesome to wear, because this is bound to be no ordinary concert. So here are a few ideas to get you started...
