When Miley Cyrus set out to become a world-renowned singer, she never expected to attain her current level of success. But as with all good, there comes some bad too.
For her “Best of Both Worlds” tour, the Hannah Montana actress has sold tickets to her shows in record time. The problem is, a lot of those seats are now in the hands of scalpers, and they’re charging an arm and a leg (up to $2500) for admission to the show.
Miley told press, “We made (VIP sections) smaller, so the kids that wouldn’t necessarily have had the chance to come, they can get in, but not for a fortune. It’s going to be a good show, but I don’t think it’s worth what it’s going for. For the people that do get to come, I’m going to make it the best show ever.”
Her father, “Achy Breaky Heart” singer Billy Ray Cyrus added,
“Miley’s doing the concert and the tour for the fans. It is sad that she’s putting all this work behind it and really wants to make as many families and kids happy as possible. It’s sad that with the Internet that the scalpers got a hold of the tickets first.”
Several states are looking into the legality of the methods used by scalpers, with charges pending.
