The Wonder World Tour is a concert tour by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. It is her second tour and first to be worldwide and not include the fictional alter ego Hannah Montana. The tour was made to support Cyrus' extended play The Time of Our Lives.

Presented by Wal-Martmarker and promoted by AEG Live, the tour takes place in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. The set list has material from her debut album Meet Miley Cyrus, sophomore album Breakout, soundtrack to Hannah Montana: The Movie and the extended play The Time of Our Lives. Venues were mostly arenas. Cyrus' vision of the tour was more "wild" and "crazy" than the Best of Both Worlds Tour. She wanted to have a more mature tour that was still accessible to all audiences.

Cyrus' performance on the tour received positive reviews from critics. Most stated that the tour was a good form of transitioning from Hannah Montana to a long-term artist.

Background

On June 3, 2009 the tour was officially announced through various outlets including Cyrus' official Twitter page, Wal-Martmarker, AEG Live, and her official fan club MileyWorld. At first the tour was only to extend throughout the United States. Several more dates were announced on June 5, including concerts in the United Kingdom. In order to avoid the ticket controversy and scalping that occurred during the Best of Both Worlds Tour, Ticketmaster used Cyrus's tour to experiment with a method of ticket sales, which was first tested by AC/DC in their Black Ice World Tour. According to a press release, all tickets were to be sold exclusively through paperless ticket delivery which means fans did not receive a physical concert ticket for their entry into the event. Ticket buyers were required to bring the credit card used to make the purchase and a photo ID to the concert venue in order to gain entry. All groups were to enter the concert together, and ushers issue "seat locator slips." One dollar of each ticket from the tour went to benefit the City of Hope Foundation, which helps in fighting against cancer.

Cyrus returned to Los Angeles, Californiamarker to rehearse for the tour in mid-August, after she completed filming The Last Song. While calling in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Cyrus revealed that due to filming she was only able to rehearse for three weeks although the average rehearsal period for such a tour is about three months. In an interview with MTV News, she explained that due to time constraints, there would be no guest appearances from other recording artists during the tour.

Theme and styles

Some of the tour's clothing was sponsored by Cyrus's and Max Azria's joint apparel line. Via her official Twitter, Cyrus stated that her clothes expressed individuality, and were "very rocker."

Cyrus said that the Wonder World Tour would be more elaborate with props like tractors, boats and motorcycles. Cyrus explained on an interview with MTV News that her appearance and performance had drastically changed from the Best of Both Worlds Tour. It would have several "pretty hi wild" and frequent costume changes that included a bejeweled bodysuit. She stated, "It's super fun. It's kind of for everybody. And it's got all these different types of styles into it [...] It's definitely crazy. It's a new, different world." On an interview with Tony Potts of Access Hollywood, Cyrus further elaborated on the themes of the tour. At first Cyrus described the work occurring in the Wonder World Tour. Cyrus said, "There's lots of pieces, lots of different things [...] We're driving tractors, motorcycles, I'm flying." She then explained that everyone on set share their ideas and the tapes of rehearsals were checked to see which ideas made the final cut. When asked what was different between the Wonder World Tour and previous efforts, Cyrus responded,

Synopsis

Cyrus performing "Simple Song" in the Wonder World Tour.
The main show commenced with Cyrus emerging from below the stage encased in a crystal-like glacier. She wore black boots, black shorts and tank top, and a white fur-like vest. She then escapes from the glacier for the opening number "Breakout." Near the end of the performance, the background dancers pulled out construction carts on which Cyrus danced atop. Cyrus then took off the fur vest performed the upbeat rock oriented songs "Start All Over," "7 Things" and "Kicking and Screaming."

Wearing a long, flowing gown, Cyrus next performed the ballad "Bottom of the Ocean" while large overhead screens behind her displayed such things as bubbles rising through water. At the conclusion of the performance, she jumped into stage and images of what appeared to be Cyrus swimming in the ocean appeared on the screens. The next song started with two overhead screens displaying a frog catching a fly. Meanwhile, acrobats scaled imaginary walls. Cyrus, wearing an extravagant white dress with a feathered back, and her dancers then emerged from a green airboat withmoss hanging from it to sing "Fly on the Wall" and perform elaborate choreography. At one point of the performance, Cyrus unexpectedly flew over the crowd for a few seconds. After the performance, Cyrus and her background dancers grouped together to perform a "brief interpolation" of the dance from Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Cyrus re-appeared in a short white dress to perform the the song "Let's Get Crazy", credited to Hannah Montana, as herself. Afterwards, she and her background dancers sang and danced the "Hoedown Throwdown". Mid-way through the song, will.i.am appeared on the screens to congratulate Cyrus and continued speaking as she left the stage. When he finished, the dancers performed to a remix of "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas. Cyrus' next three songs were ballads that she performed in a black dress and boots. For "These Four Walls", Cyrus sat on a bar stool while the band performed acoustic. Cyrus then gave the audience a brief introduction to her forthcoming film, The Last Song, and exited from the stage as the film's trailer played on the overhead video screens. Once it finished, Cyrus reappeared at the bottom of the stage. She played a white grand piano and sang "When I Look at You" while film clips continued to play on the screens behind her. She then sang "Obsessed" in an elevated prop.

Wearing red cheetah-patterned shorts, a black shirt and boots, Cyrus performed a second Hannah Montana song, "Spotlight", from the soundtrack to Hannah Montana: The Movie, while altering geometric figures were shown on the screens. Cyrus changed her shorts to sing "G.N.O. (Girl's Night Out)". Cyrus then changed into a black leather mini-shorts, boots and a jean jacket to perform a cover version of the 1982 hit "I Love Rock 'n Roll", for which she danced in the center of the stage before mounting a red Harley Davidson motorcycle. Once again, Cyrus went airborne, flying in a circular pattern over the crowd with her motorcycle. In her next song, "Party in the U.S.A.", Cyrus paid another homage to Michael Jackson by changing the line, "And a Jay-Z song was on" to "And a Britney song was on" and changing the end of the second verse from "And a Britney song was on" to "And a Micheal song was on". The performance involved an abundance of background dancers who maneuvered stunts, including one in which Cyrus danced in a hotel luggage cart. The luggage cart was a replacement for the ice cream pushcart Cyrus had used in her 2009 Teen Choice Awards performance due to the controversy surrounding the push cart prop which had a dance pole attatched.

The environmentalist "Wake Up America" was performed next, with Cyrus taking off her jean jacket. The screens showed images of Cyrus and environmental video clips. At several venues, Cyrus followed "Wake Up America" with "Hovering", which she performed as a duet with her brother Trace. In "Simple Song", Cyrus, wearing a tuxedo, performed as a music conductor and teacher. Mid-way through the performance, Cyrus was elevated with two long black fabrics which caused her tux appear to grow. "See You Again" was the penultimate song of the concert. Cyrus appeared from the bottom of the stage with gongs announcing her arrival. She used complicated dance routines and wore a pair of white shorts, a white tank top, boots, and a metallic vest. Wonder World's closing number was "The Climb." After finishing, Cyrus exited through a passageway in the stage while fireworks were fired above.

Critical reception

The concert tour received generally positive reviews from critics. The Daily Telegraph's Kirsty Cameron praised the concert, claiming that "despite her relatively young age, Cyrus showed her unfailing capability as performer." Cameron added, "Cyrus provided her audience with choreographed set pieces and a different spectacle for each song." The Los Angeles Times reviewer Mikael Wood described Cyrus's scenario as her "still had to battle herself," instead of Hannah Montana. Wood stated, "Cyrus failed Tuesday -- as she did on her last outing -- to give her fans a deeper idea of who she is and what her music means. For all its eye-popping detail, the concert offered nothing that viewers of her TV show or buyers of her records don't already know about her." However, Wood noted that Cyrus gave charisma and good material.

Erik Enrst of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel complimented Cyrus vocal skills and said of the show "it was a pure visual spectacle". However, he noted that at times Cyrus seemed focus on the succeeding song, rather than the one she was performing. Jim Harrington, writing for The Oakland Tribune, described the show a portrayal of "the human embodiment of the Britney Spears' song "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" that mixed Gwen Stefani and Spears with children's music. Harrington added that the tour was a conscious transition for fans that do not want her to step out of the Hannah Montana franchise.

The Oregonian reviewer Melinda M. Thompson said Cyrus had star power and that the dancers "added energy to just about every number." Thompson also praised the performances of "Wake Up America" and "The Climb," saying the "showed what a powerhouse she can be using her voice and influence to get her message out." David Burger of the The Salt Lake Tribune described Cyrus's voice as "at first pitchy" and "murdered," but then improving with a "unique, distinctive tensed-throat twang that makes her one of Disney's most interesting vocalists." He added that Cyrus "soldiered through the rest" of the show well, despite being struck with strep throat. Variety magazine's Lael Loewenstein said that "Cyrus knows how to deliver the goods without losing her core audience." Loewenstein added that the concert was a "mission accomplished" with "inevitable hits" and that her vocal range was merely limited on some songs, but coupled with charisma, drive and spunk they made artistry.
