The 22-year-old performed a surreal set alongside The Flaming Lips
Miley Cyrus began her ‘Milky Milky Milk’ tour on Thursday night (November 19) in Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, with a surreal show that included most of her latest album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.
Performing alongside The Flaming Lips, who collaborated with her on the album, Cyrus sported outfits including one with a dildo attached. She also wore a giant nappy, which she later removed onstage.
At one point Cyrus mimed suckling on her 6’7″ dancer’s breasts, which were covered up with glittery bags of money. At another she came to the front of the stage where fans stuffed dollar bills in her mouth. Cyrus also took to the piano to sing about her dead fish, ripping out her fake dreadlocks.
The singer has seven more dates on the North America tour, including one tonight (November 21) in Detroit.
Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis recently backtracked on his denial of rumours that Miley Cyrus will play at next year’s event.
Tabloid reports had claimed that there are “initial plans, which are in very early stages” for Cyrus to perform at Worthy Farm in 2016.
“Miley’s been on the Eavis radar for a while,” a source allegedly told The Sun newspaper. “She’s outrageous and there was interest in previous years, around the time of her ‘Bangerz’ tour last year and when her godmother Dolly Parton played the Pyramid [Stage].”
Having later stated that the festival has “nothing in the pipeline” with Cyrus, Eavis is non-committal in an interview with Loaded.
“People keep asking me if Miley Cyrus is playing, I can’t say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to any name, because it only adds to the speculation about who will be appearing,” he said, before adding: “I think everyone has a place at Glastonbury”.
Eavis continued: “We have 20 different stages at Glastonbury, and that’s one of the things that helps make it the greatest show on earth. We’ve had Kanye West, Beyoncé, Metallica and Jay Z headline Glastonbury, and that’s shown that everyone is welcome.”
