Editorial Reviews

An incredible live concert by critically renowned singer SIA! Also features 4 music videos
and behind-the-scenes footage from her 2008 North American Tour. This is a MUST for all her
fans, as well as for those who have been hearing all the BUZZ but yet to experience the true
power and live talent of SIA!

Put the music aside. Put the imagery aside. Put the backstage antics of crew and band aside. If you hold any one part of this video dear to you it should be this: she's the genuine article.

Now add in the other parts, reconstituting them on the warmth of that--in this plasticine age--rarest commodity and you have something worth keeping.

This video makes you believe in musicians as people and artists, rather than celebrities, again.

I'm a Pro VJ and DJ for 30+ years. I have 120,000 music videos on DVD. I needed some Sia music videos, so I bought this Concert disc back in 2009, mainly for the 4 bonus videos, as, for some reason, it's impossible to get her stuff tbh, on any regular DVD compilation, or on any VJ promo discs.

I ended up watching the Concert first of course, and omg - instantly hooked - and I've watched it and listened to it, almost daily now, for 3 years. I'm not saying it has a good light show - it hasn't ... or any special effects ... or any gimmicks .... or any superstar DJs ... or any other special guests - it hasn't anything like that either - so, no - it's not like any of the 'usual' big venue big hype Concerts that have replaced album sales as the artist's money-earner these days ... lol - no - it's about Sia's incredible unique voice, her humorous personality, and her great lyrics, melodies, stories, and great band - a brilliant DVD for a night in !!!!

Trust me - it's incredible.

So so good.

I discovered SIA while looking for unique music to cover on a demo cd. When I listened to her I could not believe she wasn't global yet. I have had the absolute pleasure of offering her style and energy to others that haven't yet heard her. It is one thing to HEAR her and quite another to see her "live", on this dvd. Her passion is a glaring example of why I love her like I do. She is in total surrender to her music during performance and I just wish I could actually SEE her in person working her magic. Get this !!! Watch this !!! Experience her and just see if what I am saying is not the truth. You will not be sorry. See her now, before she conquers the world of music, and you can say you discovered her for you and your friends before anyone else.

This is a great concert DVD of Sia with additional footage and music videos. I've become a big fan of Sia's in the past year, but also have built a 5.1 home theatre system that I wanted to test this DVD on. Great way to enjoy live music from the comfort of your living room couch.

This DVD is a must have for Sia fans. I love how she gets into character for each song- it's amazing how her live singing matches the affectations that she used for her studio releases. Her band is first rate. A word of caution- some of the chit chat between songs contains adult language.

The picture is satisfactory- it's a little fuzzy, but it is only DVD quality. I wish it were released in blu-ray. The music is fairly well recorded. I only listened to it in 2.0 channel stereo, so I can't comment on the 5.1 channel mix. Overall, the sound is a little fuzzy (as you would expect from a "live" performance), but the vocals are nicely recorded. There's plenty of sweet midrange in Sia's voice.

Sia, if you're reading this and ever need a place to stay if you come to the Raleigh, NC area, my wife and I would love for you to be our guest!

What can I say? Sia is my absolute favorite singer/songwriter and I liked her material from this time frame very much. Her ability to write lyrics to complex melody is unmatched as is her talent for impeccable improvised runs through out the set. A rare commercial talent these days can belt it out and entertain with minimal effects, lighting, dancing, or auto-tune assistance. The backing band is excellent and the sounds very organic, since actual instruments are being used of course. While I do prefer the Sydney performance floating around the net, I like this one very much too. It's a shame she can no longer can find it within herself to tour anymore- there's precious few that can do it as well.
The extras are pretty cool which includes cameras following Sia around when doing some publicity, horsing around with the band, and some music videos. It all looks part of a attempt to promote a obviously very, very talented artist, but didn't exactly go according to plan and mostly failed. Lucky for us persistence pays off.

I love this Concert DVD! I love the older songs, with the full band!!! so much talent!! If you are a fan of the older records, you will love this! Even though it doesn't include the newer fun tracks found on we are Born, it's still a great show! Funny, and so many little hidden Easter eggs!

Greatly filmed with lots of concert and behind the scenes with Sia and her band. You really feel like you get to know her and her silliness in the documentary. She even leaves a voicemail singing a Capella! Great quality and a must for any Sia fan.
