US Airways Center
It was a pot -- and pop -- lover's paradise at 21-year-old Miley Cyrus' packed-house Bangerz tour stop Thursday night in Phoenix.
Concertgoers walked in to see multi-colored balloons hanging from the ceiling and covering giant fixtures throughout US Airways Center. The smell of marijuana permeated the air around the mostly high school-aged crowd (gasp). Trippy Dalí-esque animation and Ren & Stimpy-like cartoons played in the background during the show. And, of course, Cyrus donned a sparkly green ganja leaf onesie, complete with pot bling and a marijuana necklace she proceeded to wring between her legs.
Judging from one of Cyrus' fans, maybe a high school freshman, wearing a sparkly pot bra in a section near the front, it was just what the audience wanted. Good thing not many parents showed up to the concert, which has come under fire for its raunchiness since its debut.
The show started off as a stoner's dream, with brightly colored plushies dancing around the simple stage with a giant screen backdrop. As Cyrus' face appeared on the screen, a door appeared, and a giant tongue slide brought Cyrus to the stage for her screaming fans as balloons fell into the crowd.
