Disgruntled parents, fans want Miley Cyrus' 'Bangerz' tour shut down

PHOENIX - Many parents and fans are unhappy with the antics of Miley Cyrus on her current tour and they’re asking for the entire “Bangerz” tour to be shut down, according to a report in Huffington Post.

It’s no surprise the entertainer pushes the limits during her performance, but people are beginning to wonder if she’s gone too far this time.

MusicFix reports that Cyrus’ management team has been swamped with complaints about the performance, according to the Huffington Post.

Parents are apparently complaining it’s just too racy and inappropriate for younger fans.

Many parents are reacting to the reviews by posting their tickets for sale on eBay and Stub Hub. Others are asking for refunds and refusing to attend, Huffington Post reports.

“She's such a talented artist, but does she really, at this age, need to go that far out,” asks Jim Kovacs, a Valley parent looking to dump his Cyrus concert tickets.

Kovacs tried to purchase tickets to Cyrus’ Valley appearance back in 2007, but the concert sold out.

So this time he jumped to buy to tickets as soon as they went on sale, spending nearly $500.

“I thought, 'Well, everybody will have a great time,' thinking it was like before,” Kovacs explained.

But after hearing reports of a sexually suggestive concert, Kovacs, like many other reported parents across the country, is regretting his purchase.

“I have heard a lot of negative comments from the wardrobe, to the raciness, to a lot of flesh, and when you're hearing about all the things that are coming out from the other shows, you're scared. You don't know what to do. So that's why I'm dumping the tickets,” Kovacs said.

Kovacs now won’t be taking his daughter or his sister’s four kids, who all range in age from 6 to 12 years old.

“Think about this, look at the sex and everything that sells on TV already, you don't need to add anything more to what the kids are looking at,” explains Kovacs.

So he posted his tickets for sale on Craigslist but has had no response.

He’s not surprised after discovering online that vendors are slashing their prices to sell tickets.

Concert promoter Live Nation sent a statement to ABC15 Wednesday saying:

"There is no truth whatsoever to any stories or rumors of venues pulling out of the Bangerz Tour. Miley has created a tour that’s big, spectacular, entertaining and everything you would expect from Miley Cyrus. Reviews have been amazing and most important, fans are loving the show and having a great time. She can’t wait to bring the show to all her fans in Phoenix at US Airways Center on February 27."

The tour began in Canada last week and is scheduled for a stop on February 27 at US Airways Center in Phoenix.

According to Huffington Post, the team behind the tour has been called to strategize after learning several U.S. venues are considering dropping the show.
