Unexpected: Miley Cyrus breaks attendance record in London

rl_mileycPop tart Miley Cyrus was been selling out venues across the United States since her recent Wonder World tour began, but has our cousins across the pond been as receptive?

Yes. Yes, they have been. With gusto.

Cyrus has broken the record for performing for the largest ever attendance at London’s O2 arena.

The former Disney princess played to 16,196 rowdy fans on the third of of five concerts at the English capital. The arena holds up to 23,000 people.

Miley was supported by her brother Trace’s band Metro Station.

17-year-old Cyrus sold out her ten-date schedule. She told Irish TV channel RTE: “I will be in an apartment in London for Christmas. There will be 12 of us in total and my grandmother is going to cook dinner.”

Audience members were treated to Cyrus performing awkward booty pops, getting “hot and bothered” with male dancers and singing songs about artists she has never listened to.

To put this in perspective, the Spice Girls played for seventeen dates beginning on December 15,  2007 on their Reunion Tour.  23,000 tickets sold out for the first night in 38 seconds.
