Miley Cyrus is over touring.
The former “The Voice” coach was announced as the June 2023 British Vogue cover star, and in a May 18 interview, spoke out about her decision to stop touring. “Like singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love. There’s no connection. There’s no safety. […] It’s also not natural. It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,000 people then you are alone,” Cyrus told British Vogue at the time.
Cyrus’ last arena tour was the Bangerz Tour in 2015, which brought Cyrus across four continents over eight months. Although has since toured and performed in countless smaller venues, Cyrus’ British Vogue interview put to bed any rumors that she may be preparing an arena tour to support her 2023 album “Endless Summer Vacation”. This interview also led to backlash from disappointed fans, which Cyrus responded to in a May 24 statement on her Instagram page.

This has nothing to do with a lack of appreciation for the fans & everything to do with I simply don’t want to get ready in a locker room. Which is the reality of life on the road.
