Celebrity wild child Miley Cyrus is to perform in New Zealand.
Promoters Dainty Group announced tonight that the one time Disney child-star, who gave the world the new ritual of twerking, is to perform in a single show.
Cyrus’ first ever visit to New Zealand will see – at the stage anyway – a solitary show on October 8 at Auckland’s Vector Arena.
The Bangerz Tour show will deliver the “most explosive show of the year,” promoters say.
Pre-sales will open next Monday at 9am, with sale to the general public opening on August 28.

The 21-year-old, daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, first rose to fame in 2006 after being cast in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, in which she portrayed the starring character Miley Stewart.
She signed with Hollywood Records the following year and her debut studio album Meet Miley Cyrus sold over four million copies.
In 2008, Cyrus released her second album Breakout, which featured the successful track 7 Things, and launched her film career as the voice actress in the animated film Bolt.
Cyrus switched to a sexually explicit public image while promoting her fourth studio album Bangerz.
It debuted at number one on both the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and the Digital Album Charts.
