Hell hath no fury like a Sia fan scorned.

The local leg of the Chandelier singer's Nostalgic for the Present tour, which ended with gigs in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland this week, has drawn widespread criticism from fans and critics following the pop star's reclusive onstage behaviour.

Reviews from the Melbourne and Sydney legs noted the singer stood, face-covered, at the side of the stage, and barely engaged with the audience.

The shows also reportedly eschewed a live feed on the venue monitors, with back-up dancer Maddie Ziegler instead performing in front of pre-recorded videos.

Promoter Michael Chugg hit back at criticism of the shows, implying concertgoers should've been aware of Sia's stage set-up.

"She's always covered her face to perform, at Coachella and the American concerts, that's how it is. That's part of her whole thing. I saw 26,000 kids going ape-sh-t, what can I say?" he said in a statement following the singer's Melbourne gig.

"She's never talked on stage, that's how she is. She has the dancers on stage with her, that's how it's always been."

Spot Sia: Her dancers made up the majority of her 'Nostalgic For The Present' tour.© Anthony Smith Spot Sia: Her dancers made up the majority of her 'Nostalgic For The Present' tour. Sia, 41, who broke through in the US with her fourth album, 2008's Some People Have Real Problems, has openly discussed her discomfort with fame, saying she dons her distinctive blonde disguise to maintain privacy and manage anxiety.

However, she only began covering her face in public appearances after 2011, when she segued from performing to songwriting for the likes of Beyonce, Flo Rida and Rihanna.

At a gig at Sydney's Enmore Theatre in 2011 the singer chattering extensively with the crowd ("Sia can't seem to shut up," said the Herald's review), including talking "like a baby" and cracking "rude jokes".

While previous tours have included the sort of onstage banter local fans may have expected, she has covered her face and used Ziegler in live performances throughout the Nostalgic for the Present tour, which began in North America in September last year.
