NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Teen pop singer Miley Cyrus entertained a sold-out crowd at the New Orleans Arena. Cyrus' show Tuesday night had been sold out since the summer.
Opening for Cyrus is the electronic rock band Metro Station, for which Cyrus' older brother, Trace, is a vocalist and guitarist.
The performance marked the teen star's second visit to New Orleans this year.
Back in April, just before "Hannah Montana: The Movie" opened in theaters, Cyrus and her country music singer dad Billy Ray Cyrus visited the set of "Live with Regis and Kelly," which was filming
in New Orleans.
In an interview with the syndicated morning talk show's hosts, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, Miley Cyrus said she used to visit New Orleans for cheerleading competitions and enjoyed walking
through the French Quarter wearing colorful boas and masks.
