Watch Miley Cyrus Cover Cranberries’ ‘Zombie’ and The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ for #SaveOurStages

Miley Cyrus performed a set during the #SaveOurStages virtual festival on Saturday (October 17). The three-day virtual event, which saw artists including Foo Fighters and Phoebe Bridgers performing in empty venues around the US, was put on to benefit the National Independent Venue Association’s Emergency Relief Fund. Accompanied by a six-piece band, the pop singer took the stage at the historic West Hollywood rock club Whisky a Go Go, where she offered her own renditions of The Cranberries’ classic ‘Zombie’ and The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. She closed her 13-minute set with a performance of her new single ‘Midnight Sky’. Check it out below.

“We’re here at the Whisky a Go Go, where so many of our favorite artists have begun their journey to be icons,” Cyrus said during her performance. “And without venues like the Whisky, we might have never heard of artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Guns N’ Roses and thousands of other bands. So let’s do whatever we can to keep this historic landmark alive.”

The virtual festival also featured appearances from the Roots, Leon Bridges, Marshmello and Demi Lovato, Dave Matthews, Portugal. The Man, Rise Against, Dillon Francis, Macklemore, Jason Mraz, and more.

A day earlier (October 16), Cyrus also brought back her Backyard Sessions performance series for a new edition of MTV Unplugged. She and her band performed covers of the Cardigans’ ‘Communication’, Britney Spears’ ‘Gimme More’, Pearl Jam’s ‘Just Breathe’, Nico’s ‘These Days’, and the Velvet Underground’s ‘Sweet Jane’. Watch those below as well.

In recent weeks, Miley Cyrus has also taken on Blonde’s ‘Heart of Glass’, Hall & Oates’ ‘Maneater’, and Billie Eilish’s ‘my future’.
