Miley Cyrus has invited a high school student to hang out with her at an upcoming concert after turning down his offer to be his prom date.

Teenager Matt Peterson hit headlines recently when he stripped off to film a video request for Cyrus, wearing nothing but a big foam finger and holding a bunch of flowers as he asked her to join him at his high school dance.

Cyrus has now responded to his plea, turning him down and instead offering backstage passes to a show on her Bangerz tour.

In a post on her page, Cyrus writes, "Dear Matt Peterson, I don't think I'll be able to make it to prom But why don't you come to my AZ (Arizona) show & hang w (with) me? Don't forget a corsage."

Peterson, who will meet Cyrus at her gig in Arizona on 27 February (14), has taken the singer up on her offer and described her response as a "dream come true".
