Miley Cyrus fans wanting to see her on tour after the release of her current album Endless Summer Vacation should not get their hopes up.
During an interview with British Vogue’s newest cover story, the Grammy-nominated singer stated that she doesn’t see herself performing tours in the near future.
“It’s been a minute,” she said. “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. 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?” … leaving the answer to that question up in the air.
Earlier in the interview, the “Flowers” singer explained that she prefers to perform for her friends and loves ones in her close circle rather than for an entire arena. “Like singing for hundreds of thousands of people isn’t really the thing that I love,” she said. “There’s no connection. There’s no safety.”
She added, “It’s also not natural. It’s so isolating because if you’re in front of 100,000 people then you are alone.”
For the time being, Cyrus stated that she is focused on the present and that her life is now committed to her own happiness.
Cyrus’ last long headline tour, Bangerz, took place in 2014, and featured stops in North America, Europe, Latin America, New Zealand, and Australia. Since then, she has mainly done smaller tours, such as 2015’s Milky Milky Milk Tour, which had just eight performances, and 2022’s Attention Tour, which featured only five shows, largely at music festivals.
Endless Summer Vacation, her most recent studio album, was released in March, with its previously released lead song “Flowers” becoming the singer’s first chart-topper in over a decade.
