Miley Cyrus announces fall tour plans
If you hear a high pitched noise, that's the sound of thousands of pre-teen screaming with excitement: Miley Cyrus has announced a 45-date tour for this fall. The thing kicks off Sept. 14 in Portland, Ore., and continues through Dec. 2 in Miami. Newark, N.J., will get treated to two sure-to-be-sold-out dates, as will Long Island.
Tickets go on sale June 13. Get your clicking-finger ready, folks.
It's a bit of a family reunion, both by blood and by business. Cyrus tapped Metro Station to open -- a band that is fronted by Cyrus' older brother Trace and by Mason Musso, brother of Mitchel Musso from "Hannah Montana." In fact, those two met on the HM set.
For this stint, Cyrus goes by her own headline-inducing name, as opposed to Hannah Montana, her Disney alter-ego. It was the last few Hannah Montana tours that got parents in a tizzy, as concerts sold-out in minutes and prices of tickets from scalpers and third parties soared into the thousands.
Either adding to or deducting from ticketing headaches this time is AEG Live, who is about to experiment with 100% paperless ticketing. Buyers will have to present a government-issued ID and the credit card used to buy the tickets in order to be admitted. The same system was used for AC/DC's last tour.
The difference -- and the problem -- may arise from the fact that kids don't typically have drivers licenses and credit cards. Parents do. Looks like everyone's going to have to have chaperones, kids...
In case you want to take your love of all thing Miley even further, why not head down the aisles of a Walmart? The young star has just recently inked a deal to carry her own fashion brand in the store.
