I have played some of my favorite shows in Mexico and it felt right to come celebrate with you. But tonight, it doesnt feel like a night to celebrate. Last night, there was a tragedy in my hometown of Manchester. I am left with a hole in my heart. I went to my first show in that arena and Ive have some of my best experiences in my life in Manchester.
We have a choice every single day that we wake up of what you can put into the world, and I ask you to please choose love every single day. I promise that we will be back very soon to Mexico we will be back to do a full show. But tonight, if its okay with you, were gonna play a small acoustic set. I hope you understand and I hope you will join me in a moment of silence for all the victims and their families.
You can watchMileys emotional performance below, and we send continued love and support to everyone touched by this tragedy.
