Miley Cyrus opened Wednesday’s show at TD Garden with a giant projection of her head over the stage.
Cyrus then slid down a tongue-shaped slide.
The last time Cyrus appeared at TD Garden was 2009, basically a lifetime in pop music.
This time, Cyrus arrived supersized: more raunch, more attitude, more confidence, more hits.
Cyrus told the audience that one of her dogs, Floyd, had died the day before. “Your responsibility is to get me through, I think, the hardest day of my entire life,” she told the crowd.
A fan used a cellphone camera to get a snap of Miley Cyrus on stage.
Among the scenes from the show (not shown in this photo): Cyrus simulated oral sex on someone dressed as Abraham Lincoln.
Cyrus saved her most-known songs for the end of the show, hitting hard with her three biggest hits.
“We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” doubled as thunderous singalongs.
Cyrus tossed fake money in the air during her concert at the Garden.
The excess was in line with Cyrus’s latest album, “Bangerz,” but it also obscured the simple fact that she’s a competent singer who could occasionally make more with less spectacle.
