Performer Info

Miley Cyrus: Miley Cyrus is a singer/actress and a brand name. The starlet shot to fame on the hit Disney show "Hannah Montana", which not only featured her acting chops, but was her vehicle to becoming one of the highest selling singers of the 2000s. With her "Hannah Montana" career behind her, the aspiring star has focused intensely on her music career.

The Nashville native was the first born of country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus who scored a hit with "Achy Breaky Heart" in 1992. The close relationship between father and daughter proved to be a lucrative endeavor. Miley was cast as the lead in "Hannah Montana" and Billy Ray was subsequently cast as her father. The show made its debut in 2006 and Cyrus became Disney's biggest tween idol ever! Cyrus recorded the single "The Best of Both Worlds", which served as the theme song for the hit cable show and she embarked on a recording career. Disney released the official Hanna Montana Soundtrack in 2006; Cyrus sang on nine of the tracks and it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. The album went on to sell nearly four million copies in the US alone. Miley Cyrus tour dates were booked on the opening stage for the Cheetah Girls' The Party's Just Begun Tour in 2006.

A second season of "Hannah Montana" premiered in 2007 and Cyrus released a second soundtrack to the show. In 2007, Cyrus shed her alter ego and released her debut album Meet Miley Cyrus which peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200. It featured the top ten single "See You Again", and launched Cyrus as a legitimate solo artist. Miley Cyrus' concert schedule included her first headlining Best of Both Worlds Tour, which featured the Jonas Brothers. Miley Cyrus tour dates were the hottest shows on the concert calendar, with some tickets fetching up to $2500 on the streets. A movie version of the tour was released in 2008 and it's accompanying soundtrack hit #3 on the Billboard 200.

Cyrus returned to the studio in 2008 to record her sophomore album, Breakout, which became another #1 on the Billboard 200 for Cyrus. It featured her writing skills and an edgier vocal style that attempted to shed away her teen-pop image. That year, Cyrus also lent her voice to the animated film Bolt. She recorded and co-wrote the film's theme-song "I Thought I Lost You", which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Cyrus returned to the big screen with the Hanna Montana Movie in 2009. The film featured the song "The Climb" which became an Adult Contemporary hit. Cyrus also filmed the movie The Last Song and released her biggest single to date "Party In The U.S.A.". The single was off the EP The Time of Our Lives and sold over 4.5 million digital singles becoming one of the highest selling singles in music history, and the biggest of her young career.

After Miley Cyrus wrapped up the "Hannah Montana" series, she released Can't Be Tamed which promoted her burgeoning adult image. Her stage personality has become even further developed lately, thanks to appearances at the 2013 VMAs, a new style complete with blonde pixie hair and a racy music video for Wrecking Ball. The song is one of the lead singles off of her latest album, Bangerz, which showcases the most recent evolution of her musical style.

Nobody but Miley is sure just what she'll do next, but you can count on Eventful as your source for Miley Cyrus tour dates and concert schedule information.
