7 Shows to See in Philly This Week: Miley Cyrus, Keyshia Cole, KISS and More



Flyers Playoff Game Bumps Miley Cyrus Concert

NBC 10  reports: “The Philadelphia Flyers announced this evening that Miley Cyrus’ BANGERZ TOUR, originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 22nd, will now take place on Monday, April 21st. Live Nation rescheduled the concert to accommodate the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Game three of the first-round of the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Flyers and New York Rangers will take place April 22.”

Which raises the obvious question: Anybody want to guess the over-under on the number of crestfallen Miley fans we’ll see at the arena that Tuesday night?

Happy Monday afternoon!

One of SNL’s most famous moments of surprise, of course, happened 21 years ago this week—when Sinead O’Connor sang Bob Marley’s “War,” and concluded her performance by ripping up a photo of the pope. “Fight the real enemy!” she cried, and nothing was the same for O’Connor’s career after that. Whatever happens this Saturday, it seems that anything Miley does will probably be A) far more premeditated and B) far less likely to do any real damage to her own career.
