The Best of Both Worlds Tour was a 2007-2008 North American concert tour featuring singer, songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus of the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana, performing both as a solo artist and in character as Hannah Montana. The tour is named after the theme song for the series, "The Best of Both Worlds", which reflects the dual nature of the series' character. The tour had the most in-demand concert tickets of 2007. The concert tour was choreographed, created and directed by Kenny Ortega, the director and choreographer of the High School Musical movies and Michael Jackson's This Is It Tour. The concert in Salt Lake City, Utahmarker was recorded for the live album and was also aired on Radio Disney with interviews with Miley in April 2008 as a part of Planet Premiere. The Best of Both Worlds Tour won the 2008 Billboard Touring Award for Breakthrough Act.

Itinerary

The tour followed the June 2007 release of Cyrus's double album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus. The tour began on October 18, 2007 in St. Louis, Missourimarker and was initially scheduled to end on January 9, 2008 in Albany, New York.

One dollar of each ticket from the tour went to benefit the City of Hope Foundation, which helps in fighting against cancer.

The Jonas Brothers were the opening act for the first leg of the tour. They played a total of 54 shows on the tour.

In December, an additional 14 concerts had been added to the tour, beginning in Detroit on January 11, 2008 and ending in Miami on January 31, 2008. After the Jonas Brothers decided not to continue on the tour, Aly & AJ were chosen as the replacement to be the opening act from January 11, 2008 to January 24, 2008. The opening for the last leg of the tour was Everlife. The last leg of the tour included six dates, ending on January 31, 2008 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Floridamarker.

Tickets controversy

Tickets for the Best Of Both Worlds Tour were selling out for every show, with many shows selling out in just five minutes or less. Many tickets for the shows can then be found almost immediately after purchase on eBay, StubHub, or other secondary markets selling for well over the face value of the tickets. The Arkansas Attorney General's office said, “All hell broke loose with Hannah Montana. The tickets were gone in 12 minutes and when people turned around, they were selling at online sites for sometimes as much as 10 times the face value.” They promised an investigation, as did authorities in Missourimarker. Some of the tickets were selling for over $1,000.

The shortage of tickets for the Cyrus/Montana tour became so pronounced that it gained national attention, with The New York Times using it and the concurrent Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Magic Tour as examples of how the general public is losing out on ticket sales and how some ticket brokers have cracked Ticketmaster's defenses to gain a stranglehold on tickets. The Times, The Los Angeles Times and the Houston Chronicle all profiled several families unable to get tickets and balancing the cost of the secondary market against their child's disappointment. For their part, a Ticketmaster official said, "Hell hath no fury like the parent of a child throwing a tantrum. People who have been in this business for a long time are watching what's happening, and they say there hasn't been a demand of this level or intensity since the Beatles or Elvis." A vice president for tour promoter AEG Live said that, "The tickets are priced and sold as fairly as possible. I can assure you this is no conspiracy. We do everything in our power to stop brokers from getting tickets, but it's impossible. There has also been a controversy between Hannah Haters, whether or not there should be this much cotroversy over something as simple as tickets."

On November 13, 2007, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of frustrated fan club members unable to get tickets, against MileyWorld (the Miley Cyrus fan club) and its agents.In late November, MileyWorld had a special offer to give MileyWorld members a chance to buy tickets. For the Lexington, Kentuckymarker show, Ticketmaster stated they would sell "will-call" tickets on the date of the concert; such date-of-show "ticket drops" have been a common anti-scalping practice for years on Bruce Springsteen tours. When tickets for the added January itinerary shows went on sale on December 15, patterns repeated; only a few lottery-style winnings at Ticketmaster outlets were able to purchase tickets, while Ticketmaster phone banks were tied up across multiple states and did not provide many buying chances either.

The Ultimate Miley Party

MileyWorld members could join "The Ultimate Miley Party" at the MileyWorld bus two hours before the concert at each venue. Members needed to bring their membership cards, but members had access to raffles that included winning a signed guitar, getting clothes that Cyrus wore, getting a tour of the tour bus, and getting 'Meet & Greet' passes. Many of the raffle prizes, however, were posters and temporary tattoos.

Reception

The tour garnered $54 million in ticket revenues in 2007/2008, making it the 15th highest-grossing concert tour in North America for that year; although its ticket prices were lower than many other tours.
