Hannah Montana Tickets $198 to $1873 WTF!!!

My seven year old daughter mentioned that she would like to see Hannah Montana in concert. Evidently some of the kids at school were talking about going. So I go online and check for tickets. Holy cripes!... Are you kidding me!?!?!? The ticket price range is from $198 to $1873 EACH!

http://www.ticketsnow.com/TicketsList.aspx?PID=527421

Isn't this one of the seven signs of the Apocalypse?

For that price, I hope she's the king and/or queen of Montana. Hell, she'd better be the king/queen of somewhere better than Montana!

We used to drop the big bucks to get the good seats at these kid trap events like Sesame Street and Barney. Never again. It still pisses me off to think how dumb i was.

She's not even that good. I don't think theres even one song i like of her, and that's coming from somebody who liked the Lazy Town Cookbook song, and Likes the music, amongst other things of common pop culture such as lindsay lohan, britneyy, hilary duff, etc
But kids seem to be crazy about her i do know that much.

For those of you that don't know...she is Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter. That is the next thing to royalty in the U.S. America. Hence the high prices.

How the hell can being Billy Ray Cyrus's daughter make you anything close to royalty? The man's only song that hit big is a punchline.

Disney has figured out yet another way to generate massive amounts of revenue by making parents feel inadequate.

I sort of referenced this above, but it's only you who can make yourself feel inadequate. I had to learn this, I didn't invent the notion.

Scalpers, those damn scalpers.

NC State law allows scalping tickets, but the law also says that you can only sell the ticket for 3% more than face value.

If your kids need to hear Hannah Montana songs, I could give you a few links to all her discography and you could just download it.

Not that I would ever advocate downloading mp3s.
