Australian artist Sia, Kate Isobelle Furler by her real name, performed on Wednesday evening in Bucharest’s Constitution Square, closing the ZUtopia Music Festival with an outstanding, simple and captivating show, in which the group of dancers led by little Maddie Ziegler occupied the entire stage.
Sia made her stage appearance with the face covered by her famous bicoloured wig – white and black – with a huge ribbon on her head and wearing a white dress. The surprise was offered by the dancers, who circled her, leaving the impression of a furbelow dress.
The concert began with the song “Alive,” followed by a song also sang by Rihanna, “Diamonds,” composed by Sia, during which the dancer, who had a pair of gloves with mirrors, played with the beams of light from the spotlights, spreading “diamonds” of light all around the square.
During the entire show, the artist remained on a side of the stage, on a stand, with the face covered in the bicoloured wig, fascinating her fans only with the voice, the choreography having been left only in charge of the dancers.
The performance went on with “Cheap Thrills”, “Big Girls Cry”, “Birds Set Free”, “Reaper”, “One Million Bullets”, “Unstoppable”, “Breathe Me”, songs that stirred the applause and ovations of the audience.
The last songs of the show were “Move Your Body”, a version of “Titanium” and, maybe the most known hit of the artist, “Chandelier”.
The only words Sia addressed to the public were at the end of the show: “Thank you very much! Thank you!,” after which the performance ended at exactly one hour since the beginning.
From Bucharest, Sia will leave for Poland, as on Friday she will hold a concert at the Krakow Live Festival.
Oh Land and Belgian artist Selah Sue performed in the opening act of Sia’s concert on the Constitution Square stage. The fans of the two artists could listen to songs such as “Sun of a Gun” – Oh Land, “Reason”, Raggamuffin” or “Together” – Selah Sue.
