Music fan files class action lawsuit against Sia for 'off day' performance

Music fan files class action lawsuit against Sia for 'off day' performance

Have you ever been to a gig and just felt absolutely robbed? Well, this Sia fan had that and did something about it.

The singer's show at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park was no longer than 65 minutes, the main complaint in a class-action lawsuit filed in court. Sia stood at the back of the stage during the show, wearing a lampshade-style curtain of hair obscuring her face. The lawsuit says that it caused the show to feel “lacklustre”.

She didn't reference Israel or the location of the show, and the venue’s big screens showed pre-recorded films, rather than the gig, which some fans at the venue couldn't see. This is all typical of a Sia show, and you'd be entertained by the same performance regardless of where the gig was taking place. 

Sia’s tour promoter, Ilan Elkayam, has hit back at the lawsuit. Elkayam told IQ: “We wish to emphasise that the show was extremely successful. We have received hundreds of comments from satisfied fans who thoroughly enjoyed the performance and production. In addition, it should be noted that, to the best of our knowledge, the claim was not submitted against Sia herself.”
