With the news that Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” concert begins with the former Disney pop star sliding down a tongue coming out of the mouth of a giant projection of her face, it’s hard to think that anybody could miss the news of the show coming to San Antonio.

Cyrus’ provocative show has spurred parents across the country to protest, and ticket sales have already reflected this attitude as they’ve fallen below face value as shown on Forbes website. Forbes also shows that Internet searches for Miley Cyrus have dropped 80 percent reflecting the same numbers that they were a year ago.

However, even with this change in interest, Cyrus’ “Bangerz” concert has been described as entertaining, if not provocative. What can one expect from attending the show?

Apart from Cyrus’ exposed rear, marijuana-decorated suits, giant teddy bears, Cyrus riding a giant hot dog through the air, a variety of back-up dancers from dwarves to busty black women and finally some of Cyrus’ signature twerking can be expected when attending.

However, Cyrus has declared a mission to not only stun crowds with her sexual independence at 21, but also to wow fans with her vocal talents. Through her show, Cyrus goes through her new album, leaving “We Can’t Stop” for the late part of the show and “Wrecking Ball” for last. However, before getting to her final single, Cyrus displays the talents that landed her in America’s eye with renditions of Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make me Lonesome When You Go,” Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” and even Outkast’s ”Hey Ya.” Cyrus is the real-life god daughter of Dolly Parton and does her song great justice, even amid her silly antics on stage.

Miley Cyrus will be at the AT&T Center March 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets prices range from $50-$375.
