It’s really starting to feel like we can’t escape you, Miley Cyrus.
After several months of media hoopla/saturation and then the announcement that she will co-headline the KDWB Jingle Ball on Dec. 10, the teen-pop-princess-turned-controversial-twerker has confirmed another concert at Xcel Energy Center on March 10 as part of her own Bangerz Tour.
Tickets for Cyrus’ St. Paul date go on sale Nov. 16 via Ticketmaster or the arena box office. Seemingly a new policy from wealthy tour promoter Live Nation, ticket prices were not named with the show announcement. Some of the other dates on the tour are already listed at Ticketmaster as $39.50-$89.50.
Parents who shelled out $200-$500 to scalpers for tickets to Cyrus’ 2007 date at Target Center -- when she was in her Disney-fed “Hannah Montana” heyday – should hopefully be off the hook this time around, both because of lesser demand and (if they're lucky) the maturation of those former Hannah fans. But if not, they can try the American Express pre-sale that begins Tuesday. There’s also a fanclub-type pre-sale opportunity via a Facebook RSVP page.
Cyrus' album, "Bangerz," has produced two hit singles in the form of "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball," the latter of which is sitting at No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. The record rode a wave of hype following Cyrus' widely scorned performance with her Jingle Ball partner Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, and appearances on "Saturday Night Live" and the cover of Rolling Stone last month.
