Miley Cyrus mixed the old and the new during her opening set at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday night (Sept. 21), performing her new song "Don't Call Me Angel" for the first time (without her fellow angels Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey) while also wailing rock classics by Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.
"My favorite faces to see in the crowd are confused dads," Cyrus laughed of the parents in the crowd who bring their kids to her show not knowing what to expect -- and definitely not anticipating any classic rock. But classic rock is what they got, starting with Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" as her third song of the set and then continuing with Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" a few songs later. Cyrus looked every part the rocker chick, in her two-piece leather ensemble and wild blond curls.
In addition to the '70s surprises, Cyrus kicked off her set with Mark Ronson's "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," then sprinkled in She Is Coming singles "Mother's Daughter" and "Slide Away," plus Bangerz hits "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball."
