Cyrus Fans Outraged By Overpriced Online Tickets

Hundreds of MILEY CYRUS fans are outraged after an online ticket reseller overcharged for seats at her upcoming New York concerts.
Bosses at Ticketmaster.com posted an incorrect seating chart for Long Island's Nassau Coliseum - where Cyrus will play her only New York shows on 18 and 19 November (09) - when tickets went up for sale on Monday (08Jun09).
In addition to ticket costs, members of the singer's fan club paid $30 (£20) for a password and a 12-hour head start at 10am local time to get the best seats.
The correct chart was posted over three hours later, after hundreds of tickets had already been sold, many of them overvalued due to the discrepancy, reports the New York Daily News.
Tickets to Cyrus' concerts at the Coliseum in 2007 hit a snag when presale tickets instantly sold out. Scalped tickets later went for as high as $1,500 (£1,000).
Nassau Coliseum spokesperson Adam Ellis admits "an apology is in order" for overcharged fans, but has asked those who purchased seats to consider the Hannah Montana star's high-demand.
He adds, "Everybody who got floor tickets to Miley Cyrus is pretty lucky at this point."
Ticketmaster spokeswoman Hannah Kampf did not return requests for a comment about the glitch.
The botched sale comes just months after Ticketmaster bosses issued an apology to Bruce Springsteen fans, who were redirected to the company's resale site for tickets to his current tour, where their only option was to buy tickets from touts (scalpers) at heavily-inflated prices.
