Disney teen sensation Miley Cyrus has broken the record for the largest ever attendance at London’s O2 Arena, with a concert balanced between innocence and sass.
The actress-and-singer played to 16,196 fans at the venue when she played the third of her five sold-out concerts there earlier this month.
Cyrus treated her fans to an array of costume changes and pyrotechnics, jumping out of one hidden compartment or other on stage, “dressed in a new costume, as long, flowing dresses made way for frou-frou skirts and striped socks,” according to a review in The Telegraph, a London newspaper,
Later, during the show she mounted a red Harley Davidson motorcycle that was lifted on wires high over the audience during a rendition of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock and Roll.
After about an hour, Miley introduced brother, Trace, who had performed earlier with his group, Metro Station.
Her show was called “perfectly choreographed pop” balanced on a knife edge between innocence and sass.
The 17-year-old star is currently on a 10-date tour of the UK and all tickets were sold-out within 10 minutes of going on sale.
Miley – who shot to fame playing the title role in Disney TV show “Hannah Montana,” recently revealed how she thinks she is the “coolest person ever” and is never scared of meeting other famous people because she is far trendier than everyone she knows.
Ok, maybe she is a little full of herself.
When asked if she gets star-struck, she replied: “No, I’m pretty cool. I’m pretty much the coolest person ever… no, I’m pretty cool. I’m pretty much the coolest person ever.”
Ok, maybe she was kidding.
Miley recently gyrated on stage at the Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool, UK, wearing only a tiny pair of leather hotpants while performing her hit “Party In The USA.”
She later met the queen with other stars, including Lady Gaga, who actually is the coolest person on the planet.
