Miley Cyrus has announced in an interview with British Vogue that she will no longer be touring as she feels disconnected from her audience, and there is no “safety” in performing to a huge crowd.
The decision came after the “Flowers” singer remembered her last tour, which was in 2014. Cyrus said, “It’s been a minute, 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.” Cyrus explained that she does not want to conform to fans’ expectations, but instead live life on her own terms. She said, “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 has shared in the past that she loves performing in intimate settings for close friends. She further explained that performing for hundreds of thousands of people is not the thing she loves. “There’s no connection. There’s no safety. It’s not natural. It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,000 people then you are alone,” she added.
Miley Cyrus’ last tour was the Bangerz Tour in 2014, which included 78 shows in Canada, the United States, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. However, she has reduced her tours since then. She performed just eight shows during her 2015 Milky Milky Milk Tour and five shows during her Attention Tour in the past year.
