The Bangerz Tour is the upcoming fourth concert tour by American recording artist, Miley Cyrus. It will be launched to promote her fourth studio album Bangerz (2013). The tour was officially announced in October 2013, with dates for American and Canadian venues revealed. The tour will begin on February 14, 2014 in Vancouver, Canada. Icona Pop and Sky Ferreira have been confirmed as opening acts for the North American leg.
In 2012, Cyrus announced plans to focus on her film career, effectively putting her musical endeavors on hiatus. That year, she appeared in the films LOL and So Undercover. She was also confirmed as a primary voice actress in the feature film Hotel Transylvania, but dropped out of the project to coordinate a musical comeback. In January 2013, Cyrus ended her recording contract with Hollywood Records, under which she released the albums, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), Breakout (2008), Can't Be Tamed (2010), and The Time of Our Lives EP (2009). Later that month, she signed a recording contract with RCA Records. In March, she confirmed that her fourth studio album would be released by the end of 2013.
The final product, Bangerz, was released on October 4, 2013. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 61, which indicates "generally favorable reviews", based on 21 reviews. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, having moved 270,000 units, and charted strongly in several countries worldwide. During her appearance on Today on October 7th, Cyrus first mentioned her intentions to tour in 2014. On October 26th, she made a surprise appearance on another episode of Saturday Night Live to officially announce the Bangerz Tour. Claire Atkinson from the New York Post reported that concert promoters Live Nation Entertainment and AEG Live engaged in much competition to promote the tour, with the former ultimately being selected to represent the North American leg after agreeing to pay Cyrus $500,000 per presentation. On November 11th, a series of three promotional videos were released to YouTube to promote the tour.
On November 17, 2013, Miley confirmed after performing on The X Factor UK that the tour will be visiting the United Kingdom.
