Miley Cyrus coming Oct. 3; 'paperless' tickets on sale next week

Teen singer/actress Miley Cyrus is coming to the Sprint Center on Oct. 3.

The "Hannah Montana" star was last here in December 2007, and getting tickets to that show was a brouhaha, with a scalping controversy unlike any in recent Kansas City memory. Some people reportedly paid $537 for a pair of upper-level tickets with a face value of $26 each.

This year's tour is being called a "paperless ticket tour" in an effort to avoid the ticket wars the 2007 tour caused. The Ticketmaster Web site explains the process thusly:

  • Buy your tickets online or by phone using a credit card.
  • Bring that credit card and a valid government-issued ID to the venue.
  • At the venue entrance, present your ID and credit card. Swipe your credit card and your seat locator slips will be printed.
  • Tickets are $39.50 to $79.50, with a four-ticket limit per household. All North American tour tickets go on sale at the same time.

    Fan club ticket pre-sale starts at 10 a.m. Monday. American Express cardholders can buy tickets beginning at 10 a.m. June 10. Tickets are available to the general public at 10 a.m. June 13.

    This year's 45-show tour, for her new Breakout album, starts Sept. 4 in Portland, Ore., and ends Dec. 2 in Miami.
