This was no ordinary Tuesday afternoon. Indoor soccer games were skipped and piano lessons forsaken. Megan Foard of Forest Hill apologized in advance to her pony, A.J., for bowing out of their regular after-school ride. "He was cool with it, though," the 13-year-old said. And why wouldn't he be? Megan and her friends had to-die-for concert tickets - for Hannah Montana, who played at the 1st Mariner Arena last night before a sold-out crowd of screaming tweens. Thousands of lucky girls, and not a few boys, scampered home from school to prepare for the arrival of the 15-year-old singer-cum-actress, whose real name is Miley Cyrus, and who holds the youthful audience in the palm of her pretty hand.

In the name of Hannah Montana, and, of course, motherly love, Karen Rallis really, really tried to get concert tickets for her twin daughters. But even with one little girl on the phone pressing redial and the other's small fingers desperately working the Internet, the Rallis family ended up ticketless - a situation increasingly familiar to fans of the giggly, bubbly, lip- glossed teen sensation played by Miley Ray Cyrus.

'Hannah Montana' scores at the box office Miley Cyrus and alter ego Hannah Montana have double-teamed their way to another No. 1 box-office debut. Walt Disney's Hannah Montana: The Movie opened with $34 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. That followed Cyrus' first-place premiere last year with her 3-D concert film. The movie is a big-screen installment of the Disney Channel series about an ordinary teen living a double life as a pop star. Hannah Montana drew $17.3 million on Friday for the biggest opening day ever for a G-rated live-action movie.

First, Karen McVearry spent $30 to join the Hannah Montana fan club and buy presale concert tickets for her 9-year-old daughter Maddie. Too late - they had sold out. The 36-year-old Catonsville mom tried again the day the tickets went on sale to the public. As Maddie played soccer, McVearry stood on the sidelines, a cell phone in each hand, calling Ticketmaster, while a friend also called and tried ordering online. Still too late. The Jan. 8 Hannah Montana show at 1st Mariner Arena sold out in minutes.
