Reigning Princess of Pop Miley Cyrus kicked off her ‘Bangerz’ World Tour yesterday in Vancouver – and boy, did she pull off one heck of a show.
Miley fans will know that the 21-year-old has been teasing the show for a while now, and we don’t think her fans will be disappointed when she (hopefully) hits our shores.
Miley stayed true to herself last night, sliding down a tongue-shaped slide which appeared from a large self-portrait to open the show. We loved that she was able to mock herself and her now-trademark antics.
In brief – Miley rolled around in dollar bills, re-enacted her ‘Adore You’ video, crawled all over a gold car, danced with neon coloured dancers in animal onesies, spanked her dancers, lead a conga line and got down and dirty with a Bill Clinton bobble-head. From Miley, we would expect nothing less!
The star also paid tribute to many other artists during her show, performing covers to songs such as Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya!’ and her Godmother Dolly Parton’s track ‘Jolene’.
Before the end, the audience got to see that magnificent giant hot-dog that Miley had been teasing. Miley straddled the 20-foot-long sausage and turned the arena into her own club whilst performing ‘Someone Else’.
The ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer did not disappoint when it came to her outfits. Big name designers including Jeremy Scott and Marc Jacobs supplied custom made outfits for the star. Miley sparkled in glittery leotards and small two-pieces, and one stage wore an oversized t-shirt with her signature pose on it.
Our favourite was the plant-inspired leotard – possibly suitable for a NFSW gymnastics competition. It was paired with a cute pair of white cowboy boots. Reminds us of Miley’s ‘Party In The USA’ days..
Speaking of ‘Party In The USA’, Miley got very patriotic during her show. Sporting a red-white and blue leotard, she rocked out to the iconic single as her dancers booty-shaked in baseball inspired outfits. The statue of liberty was also present in the show highlight. It was the perfect way to end an amazing show.
And if you’re wondering how exactly Miley performed hit song ‘Wrecking Ball’ – she was clothed (barely) and stood with a microphone on stage as she belted out the track. It was great to see a stripped down version of the somewhat controversial single.
Watching the show, you could tell that the singer’s main concern of the evening was the music and not so much to shock – and possibly horrify – her Canadian audience. Proving her talents, there was no vocal doubling and no major support from back-up singers. Maybe Miley is hoping to steer attention away from her on-stage behaviour as of recent?
Regardless, Miley put on an incredible show – and we’re certain every audience member would’ve left wanting more!
And if you’re wondering about the merchandise – the usual t-shirts and tour books are up for grabs, but if you’re keen, you can also pick up 24 karat gold rolling papers. Not kidding.
