First off I would like to say that Hannah Montana's tickets cost up to 560$ and poor little kids didn't get to go see their favorite pop star sing. Do you ever get the feeling that all those singers/actresses don't care about their fans?

Please explain how they didn't even get to see their favorite pop star sing when they paid $560 for tickets.

cause they didn't pay cause they couldn't afford it you can go to youtube it was on the news there were kids crying because they didn't get to see Hannah Montana sing.

My argument is basically what you will read in the comments section. Hannah Montana is a 15 year old girl, her real name is Miley Cyrus, she has NO say in what the ticket prices are. And it is companies like ticketmaster, stubhub, etc who buy the tickets and sell them for higher prices. Also ticket brokers do the same thing only even higher prices.

Explain this, if the ticket companies choose the price, why would they make it so high? even so high that they would make less money, cause people wouldn't be able to afford it

People WILL buy the tickets. All of these shows are sold out. Think of it like oil, it is priced very high, but companies are still selling it! There are people who buy these tickets obviously, or else they wouldn't keep the prices at skyhigh. I'd agree that Hannah Montana is just a teen pop star who is getting her 15 minutes of fame, but to the 8 and 9 year old girls, they love her.

Usually the prices are high but that is not under her control. there was recently a Miley Cyrus concert in my area, and the scalpers bought every ticket within the first 3 minutes of them being on sale, then sold them for 5x the price.

Yeah I agree with Kels. Its not the fault of Miley Cyrus that she is so popular and people are willing to spend that kind of money on her show. You are telling me a 15 year old should be able to control the greed of others? Chalk this up to supply and demand folks.

It actually is not the fault of Hannah Montana or any other singer . They sell them a bit high (maybe $50-200 depending on the seats ) and then big ticket companies buy up all the tickets the minute they go on sale and they sell them at double , triple or quadruple the value...maybe more. Miley Cyrus and her dad are actually starting a lawsuit to try and stop companies from doing this. So look into it more first ...
