Sia Puts On Big Girl, Little Girl Show at Terminal 5

"Bring night, bring the night on...bring a little bit of dance, bring a little bit of song...". Sia sings such the sentiment in a new tune from upcoming album, We Are Born, and that is precisely what a sold-out crowd at New York City's Terminal 5 were welcomed to last night. Touring in support of the singer's forthcoming 5th studio release, the velvet-voiced vocalist treated fans to an extensive 17-song set that included most of her new material, along with the iconic pieces that have made her an international wonder.

If you've seen the singer's live performances before, you'll know that a perfect pairing of youthful amusement and wonder complement her well-seasoned and pristine vocals. Set on a stage with amps, mics and instruments covered in knitted adornments, a land of colorful stripes housed Sia and her backing band, much like a flaxen-haired fairy placed within the settings of her own personal Candyland. Entering the stage with a glowing "unic-horn", the crowd rumbled with anticipation and excitement as she began the opening sequence of The Fight (which repeats the album title in childlike fashion before launching into a set of funky riffs).

 

From the moment the song ended, it was evident that her most dedicated fans would be an integral part of the show. Accepting gifts from excited guys and gals, Sia bantered with the crowd between songs and offered up anecdotes about Twitter and costumes, while excitedly searching for friends in the audience.

 

But it's her delivery that is the driving force behind her success and adoration. Simply standing (with little movement) behind the mic, Sia let her voice carry through the crowd, as evidenced on the powerful belters like I Go to Sleep, Lentil and Breathe Me. These softer interludes offered an emotional respite between her pop-tingers like Clap Your Hands (her current single) and Never Gonna Leave Me (which we once heard live slowed down for a wedding, but gets the dance treatment on the album recording).

 

Overall, Sia's captured the essence of a mature woman entering her teens...a truly special and unique "big girl, little girl".

 

Last night's set list follows the below images, with video of You've Changed, Bring Night and Soon We'll Be Found after that. Full gallery of pictures can be found here.
