A Twerking Backlash: There Might Be Hope For The World Yet

A Twerking Backlash: There Might Be Hope For The World Yet

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Mar 7, 2014

If you want to see Miley Cyrus at the BMO Harris Bradley Center this Sunday evening, you're in luck. According to our very own J. Pat Miller, there are plenty of tickets to be had.

After her "performance" at the MTV Music Awards last Fall, Miley Cyrus was perhaps the most talked about performer in the country.  When her latest tour was announced, callers to my show were certain that the shows would sell out immediately.

That's not turning out to be the case.  While the show will certainly be well-attended, there's still room for you if you want to go.

As I frequently say, anyone who says that there's no such thing as bad publicity has never had bad publicity.

There are a lot of theories as to why the Miley Cyrus Bangerz tour is not selling as many tickets as promoters once thought (or that prices on the secondary market have dropped).

One thought is that parents are uncomfortable paying big money to send their tweens to a show that features the former Hannah Montana twerking and mimicking oral sex on a man in a Bill Clinton mask.  Or Abraham Lincoln.  Yes, that's right, Abraham Lincoln.

Gee, who would have thought?

Are unsold tickets a backlash to the twerking controversy or is their something more benign going on (like a slow economy)? Now that people know that tickets ae available, will they rush to the Bradley Center to gobble up seats?

We'll discuss the Miley Cyrus phenomenon during the 2 p.m. hour of Friday's radio show.  Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
