There’s bad news for Miley Cyrus fans who have been dreaming of hearing «Flowers» live in a packed stadium. In a recent interview with British Vogue, the «Wrecking Ball» singer shared that she currently has no plans to tour again anytime soon. In fact, Cyrus isn’t sure she’ll ever tour again.
«It’s been a minute,» she said in reference to touring. «After the last [headline arena] show I did [in 2014], I kind of looked at it as more of a question. And I can’t. Not only ‘can’t,’ because can’t is your capability, but my desire. Do I want to live my life for anyone else’s pleasure or fulfilment other than my own?»
Cyrus went on to add that she much prefers performing in intimate spaces, especially for her family and friends. For her, singing in front of a huge audience just isn’t as satisfying.
«Like singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love,» she said. «There’s no connection. There’s no safety… It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,000 people then you are alone.»
The last time Cyrus embarked on a world tour was in 2014 for her album «Bangerz.» Since then, she’s gone on to release some of the most critically acclaimed albums of her career so far, including 2020’s «Plastic Hearts» and 2023’s «Endless Summer Vacation.» Despite not touring, the pop star has continued to find creative ways to deliver intimate performances of her music to fans.
Cyrus kicked off the year by hosting «Miley Cyrus’s New Year’s Eve Party 2022» for NBC, in which she performed with the likes of Dolly Parton, Paris Hilton, and Sia. In March, she brought back her «Backyard Sessions» series with the Disney+ special, «Endless Summer Vacation (Backyard Sessions),» in which she performed stripped down versions of her latest hits like «Flowers.»
