Miley Cyrus Opts Out of Global Tour for 'Endless Summer Vacation': The Reason Behind Her Decision
Miley Cyrus has unveiled her rationale behind choosing not to embark on a tour to promote her latest album, "Endless Summer Vacation," released in March. The album swiftly ascended to third place on the Billboard 200 and produced the hit single "Flowers," which broke records by being the fastest song to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify.
However, following the release of the music video for "Jaded," Cyrus confirmed that she would not be touring in support of her new work.
In a candid interview for her cover story with British Vogue, the iconic "Party in the U.S.A." singer expressed her thoughts on future concerts. Cyrus stated that the likelihood of her performing in large-scale concerts again in the near future was quite slim.
"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 confessed. "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 fulfillment other than my own?"
It's been almost a decade since Cyrus' last global tour in 2014, which was organized to promote her 2013 album "Bangerz." During that tour, she made stops in several countries spanning North America, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. Since then, she's limited her performances to festivals and shows like Lollapalooza and Glastonbury.
Going forward, Cyrus hinted at performing at smaller-scale events, sharing with British Vogue her preference for performing for intimate groups of friends and family. She voiced her distaste for large arena concerts, citing a lack of safety and a disconnection from the audience, describing such performances as isolating.
Further reflecting on the fleeting nature of fame and success in the music industry, Cyrus accepted that the popularity of her albums and songs will eventually wane. According to her, she sees everything as temporary, a mere "moment" that will soon pass. Although this viewpoint might appear pessimistic to some, Cyrus assured her fans that she's simply being truthful and is at peace with this understanding.
