"Hannah Montana" to Axe Scalpers in Minnesota?

4/10/2008 11:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Minnesota is proposing a "Hannah Montana" bill that would block scalpers from buying hordes of tickets online and then reselling them later at prices a tween girl and her weekly allowance could never afford.
Hannah Montana bill goes to Senate
The inspiration for the bill came after Miley Cyrus played a concert in the cold-weather state last year and scalpers left young fans empty-handed, crying into their Jonas Brothers pillows. Boo hoo.

How are they going to stop people from buying hordes of tickets online in Minnesota? The internet has no boundaries.

Anything that gets the tickets in the hands of the real fans and not just the trust fund babies is all to the good.
Anon: Before the Internet, when you had to buy your tickets in person, they limited the number of tickets that one person could buy. They could try something like that on the Internet. Wouldn't stop them but it might drive up the price of business to knock at least some of the a$$h@les out of the market.

I hope TMZ is not being rude with the "Boo hoo." at the end. This is a really big deal for families and for everyday people. we can't afford obscene prices for concerts, and the scalpers take it clean out of the realm of possibility every time. If TMZ is being a smart-alec, you need to get back in touch with who your readers are ... regular people that are sick of being taken for a ride.
Harvey - do you even read TMZ anymore? Between the snotty remarks in your articles, the crude humor and the smacks at us 'normal folk' your staff is really missing the boat.

This needs to be done so everyone can enjoy concerts for a ticket price. Cocerts are so expensive anyway.
