Disney’s The Best of Both Worlds Hannah Montana concert tour runs October to January, and has achieved sell out success at most concert venues so far. The demand for scarce tickets has been high as parents under pressure have been faced with scalpers bidding up the ticket prices, sometimes into four figures. The tour is one of the hottest concert events in the lead up to Christmas this year.
The show’s leading star, 15 year old Miley Cyrus, has gained a huge following of fans – truly rock star status – especially among the pre-teen girls close to her in age.
Miley is the daughter of famous country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who also stars in the show. Other stars in the show include the Jonas Brothers.
In the show Miley not only performs as a rock star, but also plays the part of a rock star. She has shown she is an accomplished musician at a relatively young age. It’s no surprise, then, that she has inspired a massive interest in being a rock star among her followers.
The show has encouraged a generation of tweens to aspire to attain the success enjoyed by Miley Cyrus. The interest in all things to do with the show, including a large range of related merchandise, is huge. Up close to the top of the list, if not at the top, is an interest in guitars and rock music.
Just as the demand for Hannah Montana concert tickets has run hot, the demand for Hannah Montana guitars as a Christmas gift looks set to run hot as well. A selection of mostly 3/4 size electric and acoustic guitars branded with the theme of the show is available to meet the demand. These smaller sized guitars match the needs of the age group of the main fan base, and make the guitars relatively affordable as an entry point when starting out to learn to play the guitar.
One source of Hannah Montana guitars is Disney’s merchandising arm. Well known guitar brand Washburn has also stepped in as well, to provide a reputable branded product alternative from the guitar industry, at a slightly higher price. As the demand grows closer to Christmas, the available options may expand.
However, wise parents of fans might take a lesson from the high demand for the concert tickets, and step in early to make sure they secure a Hannah Montana guitar Christmas gift while stocks last.
