'Hannah Montana' Fan Club Members Sue over Sold-Out Concerts

NASHVILLE, TN - Thousands of "Hannah Montana" fans who couldn't get concert tickets could potentially join a suit against the teen performer's fan club over memberships they claim were suppose to give them priority for seats.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a New Jersey woman and anyone else who joined the Miley Cyrus Fan Club based on the club's promise that joining would make it easier to get concert tickets from the teen star's Web site.

Cyrus is the star of the "Hannah Montana" TV show.  Many Region 8 fans were unsuccesful in getting tickets for two shows in Memphis and North Little Rock, which sold out immediately.

Her tour is the hottest concert ticket of the year, with scalpers getting up to five times the face value of tickets.

The suit names Interactive Media Marketing Incorporated and Smiley Miley Incorporated as defendants and seeks triple damages for all members of the lawsuit and attorneys' fees.

Neither of the listed agents for the two companies based in Nashville could be reached for comment.

A spokeswoman for the teen performer said the Web site does not guarantee every member a concert ticket.

    While most students enjoy being out of school during summer break, Jonesboro police say one group of kids couldn’t wait to get back in. Not to study, but to steal.
