As expected, tween idol Miley Cyrus has announced plans for a 45-date tour of the United States, beginning September 14 at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR, and closing December 2 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL. Yesterday, TicketNews revealed the September 22 concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, as one stop on the fall tour.

Other stops on the itinerary include a September 26 concert at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV, an October 27 performance at the United Center in Chicago, IL, a November 9 show at TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, MA, and a November 25 event at Sommet Center in Nashville, TN.

Two-night engagements are scheduled for November 7-8 Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, and November 18-19 at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY. Pop band Metro Station, co-fronted by Cyrus’s older brother Trace Cyrus, will provide support for the entire tour.

General onsales for the tour begin on June 13, and tickets will range in price from $39.50 to $79.50, not including applicable fees and service charges.

Members of Cyrus’s official fan club, Miley World, will have the first chance to buy presale tickets on June 8 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., local venue time. A later presale will be offered to American Express cardholders on June 10 and runs through June 12.

Ticketing for most of the tour will be handled directly by Ticketmaster, except in Portland, Las Vegas, Des Moines, Tulsa, Philadelphia and Columbia. Buyers in these markets should contact the host venues for purchasing information.

Tickets for all dates and seating locations for the tour will be paperless, including all purchases made through the various presales. Since physical tickets will not be issued, the purchasing credit card and a valid photo ID will be scanned at venue doors, and all members of a group purchase must be present and enter the venue at the same time.

To help Cyrus fans understand the paperless ticketing process, Ticketmaster uploaded a demonstration video, geared toward a younger demographic, that explains the procedure from placing the order through entering the venue. Click on the image below to view the video on Ticketmaster:

In addition to making the switch to paperless ticketing, all ticket purchases will be limited to four tickets per household. According to a statement from Ticketmaster, this household limit applies even to fan club members, “regardless of multiple memberships.”

While Cyrus has used various restrictive ticketing techniques for select tickets and shows previously, such as her September 2008 performance at the MGM Grand Theater in Mashantucket, CT, this is the first time she has used the paperless ticketing process for an entire tour. The decision to go entirely paperless is likely a response to ticketing controversies stemming from sales to Cyrus’s 2007 tour, when demand for tickets far exceeded supply.

Possibly also in a move to avoid any controversy with the upcoming 2009 tour, Ticketmaster’s beleaguered subsidiary and secondary ticket company TicketsNow sent out a message to its broker-clients announcing that the site will not allow any listings for Miley Cyrus tickets. “With the increased scrutiny and demands for more transparency in our industry, we believe it is in our mutual best interest to abide by the artist’s wishes and not participate in any reselling of those tickets,” the message read, in part.
