Herald: First we had Billy, then Miley, now Trace Cyrus hits town

17 07 2009

Trace Cyrus, the older brother of Miley Cyrus and son of Billy Ray Cyrus has caused a mini-frenzy in the capital.

The 20-year-old brother of the teen star was in town with his band Metro Station to perform and Dublin’s Olympia Theatre last night.

Die-hard fans had been queuing to watch the gig from 9am.

Trace formed the chart-topping band after he hit it off with another founding member Mason Musso during a ‘blind rock date’ organised by their mothers.

Mason’s brother also stars along side teen sensation Miley in her Hannah Montana show.

The Californian quintet are set to perform with Miley later this year when she hits Dublin in December.


The Hannah Montana star’s December gigs at the Dublin O2 sold out within minutes.

Aiken Promotions is organising the two shows at the O2 on December 16 and 17 and confirmed that tickets have completely sold out, meaning that, at just 16, Miley has become one of the fastest-selling acts in the history of live Irish music.

A total of 20,000 tickets to her O2 concerts were snapped up in just 10 minutes as Irish kids and parents embarked on a frenzied mission to book their place at her first concerts here.

The hype surrounding her appearance was bigger than anything seen here in years — dwarfing pop phenomenons like Britney Spears, Take That and Beyonce.
