Green Day + Miley Cyrus Team Up Super Bowl Music Fest: Look + Listen

During this year’s Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest on Saturday night (Feb. 12) Miley Cyrus and Green Day brought their A-games.

On the eve if the 56th annual football championship Cyrus mashed up songs from the ’60s, ’80s and ’90s along with co-headliner Green Day on the third and final night of the festival along with Halsey, Machine Gun Kelly, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and Mickey Guyton.

During her performance, Miley sang “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” from 1966 (the year before the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the first Super Bowl at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — as an intro to her own 2007 “See You Again.”

“I hope this show is a representation of how you never need to choose who you want to be. You can be everything and anything,” said Cyrus said who wore a cowboy hat and oversized sports coat over a futuristic Gucci tracksuit. “You may look ridiculous, like you’re wearing workout attire from 3033 and a cowboy hat. It’s just how I feel tonight.”

Along with her own “We Can’t Stop,” and “Wrecking Ball” Cyrus covered the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind,” Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares To You,” Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” and mixed in music from Stevie Nicks and her godmother Dolly Parton, before she closed the night with the fitting-for-Super-Bowl-weekend “Party in the USA.”

Green Day focused on their hits of the 1990s and early 2000s, opening with a rousing version of “American Idiot” and a cover of “I Fought The Law.”

The 20,000-seat Arena show marked the end of a week of pre-Super Bowl entertainment events as the LA area hosts the game for the first time in nearly 30 years, featuring its shiny new stadium and the hometown team favorites.
