Dark Circles Contemporary Dance

Miley Cyrus and Elton John

3 No, she won’t be twerking all up on Sir Elton. They appear at American Airlines Center on consecutive nights, with Miley on Wednesday ($43.25-$93.25) and him on Thursday ($19-$149). Who’s going to both? Probably more people than you think. Give it to the old-timer, though: His show is closer to being sold out.
