One of those quasi-research firm reports – you know the ones designed to get publicity with no substance behind the research – says concert sponsorship will increase 3.8 percent this year (I’m sure that figure was pulled from someone’s butt) for $1.09 billion over 2008’s $1.04 billion. Stick to Billboard.com for true reporting on items like these.
But it does pose a question. Who will sponsor Cyrus’ tour, more than likely beginning in August? Someone already knows – including every stop on the tour – but no one is talking.
“The Last Song,” Miley’s mom’s production, is set to start shooting in June (my prediction is a fast death due to the both director’s and producer’s lack of experience at big screen). Release date is set for Jan. 8, 2010. Will filming be completed in time for Cyrus to tour in the early fall or will she do another winter concert tour?
