It seems the like days of #1 records and sold-out arenas are over for Miley Cyrus. Radar has learned that low ticket sales and missing marks on the Billboard charts have left industry insiders believing a Las Vegas residency might be the only thing to save her.
According to sources, panic set in when her last album Plastic Hearts, and the singles, didn't skyrocket to the top Billboard spot.
Despite paying for a massive promotion campaign, the 2020 album debuted at #2, with its single Midnight Sky coming in at the disappointing #14 spot on the Hot 100 chart.
Miley's follow-up single Prisoner did even worse. It peaked at #54 even though Grammy winner Dua Lupa was on the track.
Radar is told Miley's concerts aren't selling out like the old days.
Our music sources reveal, the singer's Fourth of July show at Resorts World in Las Vegas was far from a success.
Insiders tell us, the venue was so desperate for bodies that they started giving Miley's tickets away for free just hours before her performance.
Radar has learned, there were so many empty seats that Resorts World listed the ticket prices at $0 on Event Brite's website the day of her show.
As far as Miley's upcoming Milwaukee show, there are still thousands of unsold tickets.
"People seem to have tired of Miley and moved on to newer acts like Olivia Rodrigo," one insider says. Her act seems stale and she seems confused on how to fix it."
Industry sources fear a Las Vegas residency might be the only thing to save Miley's career from tanking completely.
"Things took a turn after her divorce," another insider tells Radar, referencing her 2020 divorce from Liam Hemsworth. "Her core audience has definitely dried up."
The Australian actor filed for divorce from Miley in 2019, less than one year after they secretly tied the knot in Nashville.
