Miley Cyrus Rocks Covers of The Cure, Cranberries at Save Our Stages Fest in L.A.: Watch

Miley Cyrus unleashed her inner rock star during the virtual Save Our Stages Fest in Los Angeles on Saturday (Oct. 17).

Flanked by a six-piece band, the 27-year-old singer took the stage at the historic West Hollywood rock club Whisky a Go Go to help raise money and awareness for the plight of independent music venues forced to indefinitely close because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite playing to an empty room, Cyrus and her band rocked out to covers of The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” and The Cranberries’ “Zombie” during their 13-minute performance, which was streamed live on YouTube. Cyrus closed out her set with a passionate delivery of her latest single “Midnight Sky.” Watch below.

Before stepping off stage, Cyrus offered some encouraging words for struggling music venues around the country and paid tribute to the Whisky’s historic roots.

“We’re here at the Whisky a Go Go, where so many of our favorite artists have begun their journey to be icons,” she began. “And without venues like the Whisky, we might have never heard of artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Guns N’ Roses and thousands of other bands. So let’s do whatever we can to keep this historic landmark alive.”

The Save Our Stages Fest, which launched Friday and concludes Sunday, featured additional performances around the U.S. by Reba McEntire (Ryman Auditorium in Nashville), Dave Matthews (Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville), G-Eazy (Independent in San Francisco) and The Roots (Apollo Theater in New York), among others.
