Bananas Over Hannah Montana

If you are wanting to take your kids to go see the much-hyped Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus "The Best of Both Worlds Tour" - too bad. The teenage pop icon has been packing arenas to capacity all over the country, and tonight's show in Memphis, TN is no exception - tickets were sold out within minutes, the majority of which were to scalpers, who turned around and sold the tickets for upwards of $1000 a pop.

The soundtrack to "Hannah Montana", released last year, debuted at #1 on The Billboard 100, and was the best selling album of 2006. She may be more famous now, but 15 years ago, it was her dad Billy Ray Cyrus that topped the charts with his debut album "Some Gave All", which went platinum 9 times.
