I’ve never been a big fan of Hannah Montana – not the show, not the music, not the merchandise.
So when the Best of Both Worlds 3D Concert Movie came to town, I didn’t give it a second thought. That is, until Girlie Girl found out about it and pleaded with me to take her. What’s a Mom to do? So, I ordered our tickets through Fandango.com, printed out the confirmation, and we were all set.
Luckily, because it was a school day for most of the state (Girlie Girl’s track is on a break) the theater wasn’t very crowded and we were able to get prime seats. The 3D glasses were actually pretty cool and looked like regular sunglasses. Remember when they used to be made of cardboard with red & blue cellophane for each eye? Boy, we’ve sure come a long way.
Anyway, I am happy to report that I am now a fan of Hannah Montana’s music. Her energetic performance was filled with thought-provoking songs and cool dance moves. Her wardrobe was stylish yet conservative, something you don’t see too much of anymore.
They also showed behind-the-scenes rehersals and interviews which help you get a feel for the real Miley Ray Cyrus. She does’t seem spoiled or diva-like. In fact, she’s very close with her family and really incorporates them into her shows. She treats everyone from the musicians, to the dancers, to the stage hands like they’re her best friends. I have a new found respect for her and can see why she’s so popular with the younger crowd and parents alike.
I still don’t think I’ll be watching her show or paying $1000 for concert tickets but I’m definitely downloading the CD from iTunes!

My oldest sonâ€™s employer owns 4 box seats at the Anaheim Pond. He keeps them as PR for big clients. Our kids are able to use them quite often however when the Hannah Montana concert came to town every client plus some were calling to use/buy/rent the seats. He not having any youngsters at home was surprised that Hannah was in more demand then any sporting event or entertainment event. To be honest, thatâ€™s when I realized the popularity of Hannah even though I was familiar with her. Wow! I think sheâ€™s the best thing that ever happened to her dadâ€™s career.
