Miley Cyrus - Gypsy Heart Tour - My Review

 Well she rocked!! I knew I was excited but I didn't really know what to expect, a fun pop concert most likely. It turned out that wasn't to be. Miley's concert was a rock concert pure and simple. She absolutely knocked it out of the park - Her voice was amazing, the voice of a hard drink'n and smoke'n rocker twice her age, powerful and perfectly suited to the rock feel of the show. 'Every Rose Has It's Thorns' showcasing her voice and her ability to pull off a killer power ballad.

A highlight for me was her Joan Jett nod - I Love Rock n Roll, followed by Cherry Bomb and Bad Reputation! Joan would have been proud.

She managed to incorporate most of her hits which kept the younger audience happy - as evidenced by the insane volume of their appreciation, but for those who had left our teens behind (way behind for some of us) her rendition of Teen Spirit by Nirvana was a risky but ultimately perfect addition to the set list. What a gutsy choice - an iconic song by an iconic band - she absolutely owned it and proved she is a talent well beyond her years.

I look forward to seeing where she goes from here and what direction she takes her career - My tip is that the pop will slowly disappear to be replaced by a pure Rock goddess. Nice work Miley.

Oh and this was nine year old Gidget's first concert - I think she loved it!  I had a spare ticket and she was more than willing to be my date for the night.

This review surprised me - not the image I had in my mind of Miley! Still spins me out that she is Billy Cyrus' daughter (although all I ever really knew of Billy Cyrus was THAT song lol)
