Ark. AG wants some Hannah Montana tix

Tbdmileycyrus100907 A few of you Juice*heads have been wondering how tickets to the Hannah Montana tour sold out so quickly, so take a bite out of this. Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has demanded that five companies — Ticketliquidator.com, StubHub.com, Tickets-For-Events.com, TicketsNow.com and Gotickets.com — turn over documents concerning the Miley Cyrus show, Star reports.

The AG says he suspects that ticket brokers and resellers used newfangled computer software that blocked legitimate customers and allowed them to buy the lion’s share of stubs to the 54-date Best of Both Worlds Tour so they could scalp them at a premium. (A seller on eBay is currently offering four tickets in section 110, at the far end of the floor, to the Nov. 19 Tampa show for $2,795.)

Ticketmaster spokesman Joe Freeman even admits that “inappropriate and arguably illegal activity” is at the center of the ticket frenzy. That doesn’t change the fact that your kids probably aren’t going.
