Tongues will surely wag...
Miley Cyrus plans a return to Sprint Center on April 15.
Ticket prices are still to be announced, but they’ll go on sale at 10 a.m., Nov. 16 at LiveNation.com.
Cyrus last played Kansas City in 2009, when she was 16. The show was the first Sprint Center show to use paperless tickets. Music writer Timothy Finn wrote of the show:
“Among the nearly 16,000 fans, half were girls 10 and younger; half of the rest were girls in the 11 to 16 range; and the rest were older adolescents and a lot of parents. They saw a spectacle: an elaborate multi-screen video presentation, a small army of backup dancers, some aerial theatrics that included Cyrus sitting atop motorcycle a few stories above the crowd, a brief tribute to Michael Jackson, a Joan Jett cover and as many wardrobe changes as you get in a Cher concert. It didn’t quite match the extravagance of the Jonas Brothers’ show this summer, but it came close.”
And as a sign of things to come: “Some of Cyrus’ wardrobe was borderline salacious — low tops, super-short skirts and skin-tight shorts — all of which were exaggerated several times by some revealing, low-angle camera shots.”
The release from the tour follows:
The highly anticipated tour, produced and promoted by Live Nation, kicks off on Valentine's Day February 14, 2014 in Vancouver, BC at Pepsi Live @ Rogers Arena and will visit 38 cities throughout the United States and Canada including New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, Washington DC and Miami. Tickets go on sale starting Saturday, November 16 at www.livenation.com.

Details for Miley’s BANGERZ TOUR follow her surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live where she announced to fans that she would be launching a tour soon. The announcement on Saturday Night Live comes on the heels of her well-received appearance on the show (re-airing November 9) as both host and musical performer on October 5 that was part of a series of headline-making appearances that supported the release of her new album, Bangerz, on RCA Records. Bangerz debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and the Digital Album Charts with over 270,000 albums sold. Additionally, during release week, Bangerz hit #1 on iTunes in over 70 countries. Both singles, “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop,” off Bangerz have already sold 4.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. “Wrecking Ball” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks. It became Miley’s first Billboard Hot 100 #1 and her fastest-flying top 10 on Radio Songs.
“Wrecking Ball” also hit #1 on Spotify where it reached the highest streams ever for any track in the U.S. beating the next highest week by nearly 500,000 plays. This exciting news came just two days after her music video for "Wrecking Ball" became the fastest music video ever to reach CERTIFIED status, VEVO's milestone for videos delivering 100 million views in only 6 days. Cyrus shattered the previous record which she held for “We Can’t Stop,” which was CERTIFIED by VEVO just 37 days after it premiered. Bangerz has been getting rave reviews including Entertainment Weekly calling it “utterly fresh, a pop blitz from a hip-hop blueprint, and proof that Miley won't settle for just shocking us.” US Weekly declared it “the year's most titillating pop explosion” awarding the album “4 stars (out of 4).”
