Whoa, Momma!

Miley Cyrus coming to Tampa on Dec. 1

Mommas, if you are already thinking ahead to cool gifts for the holidays, this might be one your tots and Mom_mileycyrus tweens will enjoy: tickets to the Dec. 1 Miley Cyrus concert at the St. Pete Times Forum. Can you just hear the screaming when tell your daughter about this early gift? Tickets for the concert, which will open with Metro Station, go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. June 13. But there are two ticket presale opportunities for fans to take advantage of.

Fan Club presale will be offered 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. June 8. Tour tickets are limited to four per household.  Now, it's okay to do this, but some folks complained about problems with the system the last time Miley/Hannah rolled into town.

American Express cardholders will have an exclusive opportunity to buy advance tickets before the public sale. Tickets will be available for purchase with an American Express card here or by calling toll-free 1-800-745-3000 from 10 a.m. June 10 to 10 p.m. June 12.

And this might be something a little different from when you last bought concert tickets: All tickets will be sold exclusively through paperless ticket delivery which means fans will not receive a physical concert ticket for their entry into the event. On the day of show, concert-goers just need to bring the credit card they used for the ticket purchase and a photo ID to the concert. All members of the ticket purchaser's party must be present at the same time to enter the venue. The venue’s ticket usher will swipe the credit card and present each person in the party with seat locator slips.

Let the screaming begin!
