Team Coverage It is big news for anyone under 14 and their parents: Miley Cyrus will headline this year's "Stadium of Fire." She'll be performing with the Blue Man Group on July 4 at BYU's LaVell Edwards Stadium.
Nearly 48,000 tickets went on sale at the BYU ticket office at 4 p.m., and as of about 5:15 p.m. the line was still very long. The ticket office gave 1,000 wristbands to fans on Tuesday, and you can't buy tickets at the ticket office unless you have one of those wristbands.
If you don't have a wristband, you have to go online to the BYU ticket Web site to get them. Online sales began at 5 p.m.
The executive producer of the show said that he expects a lot of young, giddy teenagers to start lining up after school today. "I would anticipate it will be sold out. She performed last month in Houston; 72,000 tickets, and Reliant Stadium sold in about 10 minutes," said Brad Pelo, executive producer of "Stadium of Fire."
Debbie Burton, who is hoping to get tickets to the show, said, "I even have a granddaughter who lives in North Carolina that her mom called and said, ‘We will fly there if you'll get us a ticket.' So, they're going to fly their family to come to be with us."
"I really don't have [Internet] access. I'll probably have to go to the library to get on the Internet or something," Peggy Miller said. She wanted to buy tickets today but didn't know about the wristband system. Now, trying to get the tickets online is her only option.
The numbered wristband system works likes this: Those who had one were asked to show up at the BYU ticket office at 4 p.m. Officials at the ticket office drew a number, one through 1,000, and that's where the line began.
Not everyone who has a wristband is guaranteed to get a ticket, though. Each person who does get a chance to purchase tickets can get a maximum of 25, so they'll go fast.
If you opt to buy online, it's open to anyone starting at 5 p.m. The limit is also 25, but you can only buy eight at a time.
Not everyone is excited about Miley Cyrus. When we asked one man about Hannah Montana, he admitted, "I've heard her name, but that's it."
Another said, "You know, I'm actually more excited about the Blue Man Group."
Tickets range from about $35 to $120. To get to the BYU tickets Web site, click the related link.
