Can a musician be sued for not chatting with the audience?

Pop star Sia had a concert in Tel Aviv where she performed all her major hits. But concertgoers were left unhappy because she didn't chat in between songs. She never even acknowledged she was in Tel Aviv. Some audience members were so miffed, they filed a $2 million class action lawsuit. Sia herself has said she gives her ALL to performances and while they are 'abstract' (she doesn't show her face) that's part of what it is to see her live. She's there to perform a show, not schmooze.

Perez has a point. She's a musician. She performs songs. Some people HATE when stars spend too much time talking and not enough time playing the hits. p.s. Perez, you're looking for the word "meshuganah" in Yiddish.

It sounds like it was an overall poor performance. The Jerusalem Post describes it like this: "As a result, the vast majority of concert-goers (with the possible exception of people who shelled out for expensive front-row “golden ring” tickets) experienced in essence a movie screening on the lawn of the Yarkon, complete with live backing vocals from a bewigged Sia and a distant stage show they couldn’t see."
