Sadly, Miley Cyrus did not play this song during her acoustic interval at the Birmingham NIA show last Friday night. She played "It Ain't Me, Babe", "Summertime Sadness" and "Jolene". It was simply wonderful. After the absolute pandemonium of the opening ecstasy, the stage and all lights blacked out as if there has been a power cut. After a minute, people started whistling. Suddenly footage on the screen behind the stage shows Miley with a small acoustic band and newbies assume it's archive footage. Then a small stage rises at the back of the arena for an interlude set for the Dads and Moms who were chaperoning their kids and for those in the cheap seats in 'the gods' to see The Goddess up front and personal.
Miley is recording footage of her singing which is projected onto the screens behind the main stage for the 'fans' who tried to rush to the back of the arena but were stopped by sensible security measures. We note that there are usually no large screens or mini-stage at Morrissey arena events of this magnitude. Miley Cyrus is one of the most gifted performers we have every encountered. Almost as ecstasy inducing as Katy Perry. To have seen both in one week in Birmingham as well as Nine Inch Nails was almost too much. Almost.
Everyone on this thread other than the Moderator who helpfully brought this footage to our attention and user 'jm26' is now on Eternal Ignore either for being rude towards Ms Cyrus or for straying off-topic. There is no appeal against the sentence of Eternal Ignore. Anyone who gratuitously re-posts anonymous or other user user comments which contain tiresome attempts by these banished entities to communicate with us will also face summary banishment. We will be raising the issue of how to speed up the process of putting 95% of the eejits here on Eternal Ignore. It would be helpful if there was a button by the comment to allow either ignore further responses from this user in this thread or Eternal Ignore. We will raise this in the appropriate section of this online asylum.
Now that Morrissey has done the impossible with 'Istanbul' we are in a new era. We simply don't have time for anyone's nonsense as it distracts from the astonishing artistic and ethical renaissance of Morrissey and his band.
