Miley-Cyrus-Bangerz-Tour-LondraMiley Cyrus is finally back on stage at the Bangerz Tour! After hospitalization, which caused the rescheduling of the last U.S. dates and the postponement of the first two in Europe, yesterday evening was held the first European concert at the O2 Arena in London, and of course the event was a memorable one, with a number of new and curious episodes.

Before you even get to the O2 Arena for the first concert of the tour in Europe Bangerz, Miley had already warmed the hearts of fans and made ​​a fool of the network, the whole matter of seconds. In fact, the singer has released a video on Instagram where dancing to the tune of the song Turn Down for What DJ Snake & Lil Jon, shot on the boat that was taking place at the concert. What’s so interesting? In the video, dancing, Miley takes off his shirt and for a second you move the bra, showing perhaps more than he intended. But that’s not all, in fact the problems with Miley’s clothes are continued during the concert in London. For the first show of the tour in Europe Bangerz, Miley debuted a series of new outfits. The first is a body adorned with Swarovski crystals with two exciting applications on neckline and back, reminiscent of the famous logo of the Rolling Stones, while the second body, with yellow sequins and feathery skirt of the same color, he gave the singer a few problems. While singing FU, the zipper on the back of the body was opened and Miley is directed toward the stage, where it is checked by mom, Tish, along with a costume that has solved the problem and the show continued without any further hitches.

Among the other new outfits presented yesterday evening by Miley, there is a white body with gems and applications, to which was added a hood, worn for the segment that includes Wrecking Ball. Finally, the singer has won over the British public with a final surprise for Party in the USA, at which time generally wore the costume stars and stripes, Miley was presented with a body inspired by the British flag, sending the crowd into a frenzy at the O2 Arena.

If 2007 was the year of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus, 2008 might be the year of the Jonas Brothers.

At least the teen pop-rock act seems to have all the pieces in place for a breakthrough of “Montana-mental” proportions.

The career of the Jonas Brothers kicks into high gear this summer with a run of headlining shows at outdoor amphitheaters, including a stop at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Thursday.

The tour comes on the heels of the June debut of the first Jonas Brothers movie, “Camp Rock,” on the Disney Channel. Meanwhile, the same channel continues to air the reality show mini-episodes, “Living the Dream,” which follow brothers Nick, 15, Kevin, 20, and Joe, 18, on tour.

Next comes the release of their new CD, “A Little Bit Longer,” scheduled to hit stores Aug. 12. And plans also call for filming to begin this fall on a new Disney Channel series, “J.O.N.A.S,” which will feature the brothers playing spies in an action comedy. Beyond that, there’s talk of a book and a 3-D concert movie.

Kevin Jonas says the group relishes its mushrooming success and exposure, despite its challenges.

“It’s really crazy,” he said in a recent interview. “But it’s a lot of fun. We’re enjoying every minute of what we do. The schedule we keep is demanding, but it’s definitely an amazing experience. We really enjoy going on the road as much we are able to.”

The Jonas Brothers’ momentum began to build when they landed the opening slot on last fall’s monumental Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus tour. Those arena shows sold out in minutes, and the unprecedented demand for tickets allowed resellers to fetch upward of $3,000 for some seats.

Originally signed by Columbia Records, the Jonas Brothers’ 2006 debut CD, “It’s About Time,” was in the works for nearly thee years before it was released. In fact, it originally was going to be a solo project for Nick Jonas, who had performed in several Broadway musicals.

But when songs written by all three brothers were submitted for the CD, Columbia shifted gears and decided to turn the Nick Jonas solo album into a group project.

“It’s About Time” made only a modest commercial impact, and before making their self-titled second CD, the group split with Columbia and signed with Disney’s Hollywood Records. That second CD has sold more than a million copies since its release in August 2007.

The Jonas Brothers are a different kind of teen act — more like Hanson than ‘N Sync or the Backstreet Boys.

Like the Hansons, the Jonas Brothers co-write most of their songs. They also play instruments on their CDs and on stage, with Kevin on guitar, Joe on keyboard and guitar, and Nick playing keyboards, guitar and drums.

Kevin Jonas said this might be one reason they are succeeding at a time when, with the exception of Cyrus, the teen pop scene has fallen out of the spotlight.

“I think for us, since we’re there from the beginning with the writing of the songs through the production, it just becomes a different experience,” he said. “This music really is us. It’s not like a manufactured version.”

The Jonas Brothers’ sound, too, is a bit different than many of the hugely successful teen pop acts of days past. Where ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys leaned toward an urban-influenced dance-pop sound, the Jonas Brothers have more of a power pop sound.

For “A Little Bit Longer,” the brothers even hinted that the new songs are influenced by the likes of Elvis Costello, the Beatles, the Animals and the Rascals.

They emphasize, though, that “A Little Bit Longer” won’t be a major departure from their second CD.

“It’s definitely not a completely different change by any means,” Joe Jonas said. “But this record was definitely inspired by some of the artists we look up to, like some Prince and Elvis Costello influences and a little piece of funk (getting) into some songs.”

Kevin Jonas said fans who see the current tour will get a good sampling of the new material.

“We’re excited about it,” he said. “It’s a whole new production and, of course, it’s going to be outside in amphitheaters, and so it will have a summer vibe, and we can’t wait for everyone to come out.”
