After a two-week recovery from a sinus infection, Miley Cyrus resumed her Bangerz tour in London at the O2 Arena on May 7, with a bang (excuse the pun). Miley kicked off the show sliding down a giant tongue, to her opening track “SMS (Bangerz)”. From there on things just got crazier.
The show in itself was very visual; Miley made several costume changes (and handled a mishap as you’d expect her to: “I look better with less clothes on anyway.”) from a Swarovski crystal embellished bodysuit complete with lips and a wagging tongue, to a marijuana-printed leotard. The video backdrop was designed by John Kricfalusi—creator of Ren & Stimpy—and the stage was full of back-up dancers for Miley to spank, and other dancer dressed in furry animal suits.
We’ve all learnt what exactly “just being Miley” means these days, and that it exactly what she delivered: an entertaining, fast-paced, highly energetic, interactive, over-sexualized, crazy concert.
