All Ages: Legends old and young are in town this week


Hitmaker and powerhouse Sia is bringing her Nostalgic For The Present Tour to AAMI Park this Thursday November 30. The multi-platinum artist’s last show in Melbourne was at the Palais Theatre back in 2011; hence this spectacular stadium tour is a tremendous step-up. Since then, she’s released two critically acclaimed albums, 1000 Forms of Fear featuring one of the biggest songs in 2014, ‘Chandelier’ and This is Acting featuring, again, one of the biggest songs of 2016, ‘Cheap Thrills’. A little fun fact, Sia originally wrote this song for Rihanna and even her manager thought that the catchy song would be another ‘Diamonds’ for RiRi’s music career (Sia also wrote ‘Diamonds’). Turned out, the hit track really was meant for Sia as she knocked aside Drake’s dance tune ‘One Dance’, which had topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for ten weeks last year. Joining the tour is English singer-songwriter Charli XCX, Danish wunderkind and the creator of our favourite tune Adore’, and now multi-ARIA winner, Amy Shark. What a stellar all-female lineup.

On the very same night global pop star and *greatest person on earth (*Ed), Harry Styles is bringing his first solo tour to town. This time around, he will give us a glimpse of what to expect for his arena show next year at Rod Laver. This will be a much different affair, with an intimate show at Forum Theatre. The former One Direction heartthrob released his self-titled debut in May and it debuted at number one in numerous countries including here in Australia, Canada, the UK and the US. This is going to be a stunning night.

Next Tueday December 5 and Wednesday December 6, Beatle and all round living-legend, Paul McCartney will be having his stadium show at AAMI Park. Everyone knows Sir James Paul McCartney, right? The English songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist is said to be one of the most successful composers and performers of all time. His Beatles song ‘Yesterday’ is one of the most covered songs in popular music history. There’s nothing much to say about this legend really because everything he exhibits to the world has always been phenomenal and legendary.
