Flights get delayed and cancelled all of the time and for most of us it is an inconvenience. When you are a music star and thousands of people have paid to be at one of your concerts a flight cancellation must be a bigger headache for you than most.
This is just what happened to Sia’s flight from Melbourne to Sydney. The flight was cancelled due to severe weather so Sia and her entourage decided to drive the 13 hour trip to her next concert at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney.
“I may be five minutes late,” the singer tweeted on 2 December. “We couldn’t catch a plane due to weather, so drove thirteen hours then blew a tire which has given me crazy diarrhoea. Bear with me guys. I love you.”
She later tweeted: “Four minutes from venue. Fully dressed. Ready to go. Bear with me. Massive apologies.”
Although the weather in Sydney was still terrible and the crowd were absolutely soaked, they were really grateful that the singer had gone to all the effort to get there and posted on twitter comments to reflect their gratitude.
Don‘t Worry Queen, we would wait the whole lifetime for you
The star’s Sydney shows came towards the end of her “Nostalgic For The Present tour”, which has already played at 23 locations in the United States. For the performance, Sia donned her trademark black and blonde wig, shielding her eyes from the audience as she performed hits including Diamonds and Chandelier. Sia was joined on the stage by Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, who has been working as a back-up dancer on the tour.
