Cyrus performing on the Best of Both Worlds Tour
Best of Both Worlds Tour was the debut concert tour by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. The tour was held to promote the double-disc album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), which consisted of the soundtrack to Hannah Montana's second season and her debut studio album. It initiated in October 2007 and concluded in March 2008, visiting cities in the United States and Canada. The tour was promoted by AEG Live and Buena Vista Concerts. Labelmates the Jonas Brothers, Aly & A.J., and Everlife each served as opening act during the tour. The Best of Both Worlds Tour was created, by Kenny Ortega and Michael Cotten, to be video intensive and was meant to differentiate Cyrus from Hannah Montana as a performer. The show had Cyrus performing first under character, as Hannah Montana. She then performed a duet with the opening act, which continued performing an interlude of songs. For the latter half of the duet, a body double was used to facilitate the transition from Hannah Montana to herself. The fast-paced concert had six segments, divided equally between each persona. The tour received generally positive responses from critics, some who complimented Cyrus' vocal skills and onstage presence and preferred the Hannah Montana set over Cyrus'. The tour was commercially successful, grossing over $54 million. A three-dimensional film, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, was released to American cinema in February 2008.

Featured album

Breakout is the second studio album by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. The album was released on July 22, 2008 in the USA by Hollywood Records and is Cyrus' first not affiliated with the Hannah Montana franchise. On September 14, 2008 it was released internationally. This, coupled by Cyrus' fondness for the album's first track, influenced the title of the album. Cyrus composed many of the songs on Breakout as she traveled on the Best of Both Worlds Tour (2007–08), co-writing eight of the album's 13 new songs. Most songs feature writing credits for Antonina Armato and Tim James. Overall, Breakout is dominant on pop rock but explores a variety of other musical genres. Lyrical themes addressed in the album relate to breakups and coming of age.

Featured song

"Breakout" is a pop song by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. It was released to Radio Disney as promotion for Cyrus' second album of the same name. It was originally recorded by American pop singer Katy Perry as a demo track for her debut album One of the Boys but due to not being included in the album, the song was passed on to Cyrus. "Breakout" is a dance-pop whose instrumentation includes keyboard, guitar, and drums while lyrics discuss growing up and being carefree.
