Miley Cyrus reveals tour plans with paperless tickets

, Staff

Teen pop star Miley Cyrus has revealed plans for an expansive fall tour that will hit over 40 cities nationwide. The tour, her first without her her Disney alter ego Hannah Montana, will hit Boston’s TD Banknorth Garden on Monday, November 9. Keeping it in the family, Miley’s older brother Trace Cyrus and his band Metro Station will open all shows on the tour.

Tickets, which range in price from $39.50 to $79.50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Cyrus plans on donating $0.75 of the venue’s facility fee to the City of Hope organization. A pre-sale is currently underway for fan club members and another pre-sale for American Express cardholders will begin on Wednesday. No second date has been announced, but one is expected to be added. Cyrus will also perform at Harford’s XL Center on Thursday, November 12.

In an effort to reduce scalping, Cyrus’ tour will utilize new paperless ticketing functionality. All tickets will be sold though a paperless ticket delivery (no hard tickets will be made available). Fans will be required to bring a photo ID as well as the credit card used to purchase the tickets to gain entry. The buyer and his or her guests must enter the venue at the same time. Ushers will scan the buyer’s credit card and issue them "seat locator slips" as the enter the venue. More information on the ticket process is available here.

Cyrus is touring in support of 2008’s Breakout, her most recent release and first without any sharing of the Hannah Montana moniker. The tour is her first since the 2007-08 "Best of Both Worlds" tour, which generated $36 million in ticket revenues.

Earlier this year, Cyrus starred in "Hannah Montana: The Movie," the big screen adaptation of her hit Disney television show of the same name. It was also recently announced that she’ll soon return to the small screen for the fourth season of the show. As if that was not enough, Cyrus has also teamed up with designer Max Azria for Walmart-exclusive clothing line.
