The Jerusalem Post reports: Australian pop sensation Sia’s highly anticipated performance in Tel Aviv last week apparently led many concert-goers to feel that the “Cheap Thrills” singer had left them with just that.

On Monday, a number of disappointed crowd members filed a class-action suit against the “Elastic Heart” artist, seeking to compensate all ticket holders for the August 11 concert.

Concert-goers who paid NIS 344 for lawn seats in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park were dismayed when the entire concert ended after just 65 minutes, an unusually short length for a major production. But that wasn’t the only thing that upset fans, many of whom spent hours getting to the venue, waiting for the show to start, and battling traffic on the way home afterward.

During the show, the megatron screens usually devoted to portraying the on-stage performance aired a polished, prerecorded video instead.

The footage featured famous actresses such as Kristen Wiig, of Bridesmaids fame, and Gaby Hoffman, from the hit Amazon series Transparent, as dancers, even though they were absent from the actual stage.
