Miley Cyrus, Green Day span decades in pre-Super Bowl show

Miley Cyrus is only half of all the Super Bowls played. But her setlist for the 56th Super Bowl spanned the entire history of the game.

Miley Cyrus, Green Day span decades in pre-Super Bowl show

At the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest, Cyrus mixed up songs from the 60s to 80s and 90s.

The 29-year old was co-headliner for Green Day on the third night at Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles. It is located about 10 miles (16 km) from SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, where Green Day will play the Cincinnati Bengals.

The festival featured Halsey and Machine Gun Kelly as well as Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. However, Cyrus was the one to do it all, mixing country and pop, dance pop, and alternative rock.

As an introduction to her 2007 song "See You Again," she sang Nancy Sinatra’s "Bang Bang" (My Baby Shot Me Down), which was recorded in 1966, the year before the Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in their first Super Bowl at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

"I hope this show shows that you don't have to decide who you want to become. Cyrus wore a cowboy hat, a sports coat and a futuristic Gucci tracksuit. You may appear ridiculous wearing 3033 workout clothes and a cowboy cap. That's how I feel tonight.

She opened the show singing her 2013 hit "We Can't Stop" and blending it with "Where Is My Mind" by the Pixies from 1988, when Washington defeated Denver in San Diego's Super Bowl.

The same trick was pulled off in her second encore: she merged her "Wrecking ball" with Prince's Sinead O'Connor song "Nothing Compares 2U" from 1990, when Joe Montana and San Francisco 49ers defeated John Elway's Denver Broncos.

The crowd was enthralled by Madonna's 1989 song "Like a Prayer". This was the last year that the Bengals were in the big league. It transformed her backup singers into a small gospel chorus.

She also mixed in music from Stevie Nicks and her godmother Dolly Parton, and closed the night with the fitting-for-Super-Bowl-weekend "Party in the USA." Cyrus owns her own past along with that of her musical forbears.

Green Day's members emphasized their hits from the 1990s and 2000s. The members of Green Day opened their show with a lively rip through "American Idiot" 2004.

During the song, Billie Joe Armstrong (lead singer and guitarist from Los Angeles) shouted "Los Angeles!" He shouted "Super Bowl!" later, the only mention of the game that night.

They added their own touch of 1966 to the mix with a cover version of "I Fought The Law", whose most well-known version was released in 1966 by the Bobby Fuller Four.

For all three nights, the 20,000-seat Crypto.com Arena was almost full. To gain entry, fans had to present proof of vaccination. Once inside the main hall, most people removed their masks.

This was the final event of a week-long pre-Super Bowl celebrations. The LA area hosted the game for the first ever time in almost 30 years. It featured its new stadium and hometown team favorites.

On the second night, Drake performed a set in West Hollywood. Shaquille Ol'Neal and John Mayer had their own events earlier on in the week.
