The event will mark the first performance by Cyrus since the release of her Plastic Hearts album, where she’s slated to play a mix of songs including “Prisoner,” “Midnight Sky,” “Plastic Hearts,” and, continuing her recent streak of inspired covers, a reimagined version of Wham!’s holiday classic hit, “Last Christmas.”
Cyrus said, “This Amazon Music special is unlike anything I’ve ever done before. In creating my set, I wanted to mimic a world that showcased specific reference points of my life. We all have a history and I’ve had an incredibly unique life: I’ve been on magazines and posters since I was a kid, and people have seen the tough, beautiful, hard, and glamorous points of it all. This is me, and this performance is about my evolution – embracing all versions of it.”
Scheduled for Christmas Eve, 2220, the “Old Town Road” singer will perform on an “extravagant” set inspired by his eye-popping “Holiday” video. The stage comes “complete with hydraulics, glacier pods and snow-capped robotic reindeer,” according to the announcement. Each night, Lil Nas X will host the entire series as a different Holiday alter-ego, including a Q&A with each edition’s artist inside a custom-made rave grotto backstage at the theatre.
Customers across the world can stream the concert experience in the Amazon Music app (iOS and Android); from the Amazon Music channel on Twitch; and in the U.S., customers can stream on Amazon.com or Prime Video. Amazon Music Holiday Plays will be available on-demand on Prime Video until December 31st. Check out a trailer for the series.
