Global superstar Miley Cyrus announced details behind her highly anticipated Bangerz Tour, which is produced and promoted by Live Nation.

Details for Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour follow her surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live where she announced to fans that she would be launching a tour soon. The announcement comes on the heels of her well-received appearance on the show (re-airing November 9) as both host and musical performer on October 5 that was part of a series of headline-making appearances that supported the release of her new album, “Bangerz,” on RCA Records. “Bangerz” debuted at number one on both the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and the Digital Album chart with over 270,000 albums sold. Additionally, during release week, “Bangerz” hit number one on iTunes in more than 70 countries. Both singles, “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop,” off “Bangerz” have already sold 4.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. “Wrecking Ball” hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks. It became Cyrus’ first Billboard Hot 100 number one and her fastest-flying top 10 on Radio Songs.
