Months of anticipation culminate as Hannah Montana plays Memphis

Thousands of Hannah Montana fans descended upon FedExForum Thursday night for the singer's highly anticipated show.

For some, going to the show meant a journey of hundreds of miles.

"We flew in from Atlanta and we flight out tomorrow morning at 7:30, just for these girls," Steve Sheets said.

Yes, some people flew.  Other people drove for hours, bringing signs and wearing shirts displaying images of the teen pop princess.

Some, who had never been to a concert before, were a little overwhelmed.

"I'm very excited," Anna Newman said before the show.  "I'm a little nervous."

And with tickets to the show at a premium, scalpers were also on hand for those who were still trying to buy some.  Upper level tickets were selling for as much as $200 each shortly before the show.

As the hour of the concert drew near, the scene outside FedExForum gradually grew quiet, as the large crowd filed inside, leaving mostly parents behind.  Months of waiting, planning, and sometimes worrying about tickets faded away as Disney's pop sensation took the stage.

Afterwards, as concert-goers filed out of the arena, most seemed to agree...Hannah Montana's visit to Memphis was something they would be talking about for a long time.
