As far as these things go, the lineup for this year's “KIIS 102.7 FM Jingle Ball,” Dec. 6 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, is fairly impressive. And by “these things,” of course I mean a concert where pre-fab, manufactured teeny bopper acts perform 15 minute sets in the name of promoting a radio station owned by a scary multinational corporation (in this instance, Clear Channel). But still. Solid.
So it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that tickets, which just went on sale this past Saturday, are going fast for the show—last check, only upper level seats were still available through Ticketmaster. Here's the bill, sure to delight pre-teens, tweens and young teens alike.
Chris Brown—pictured. Not only is he totally dreamy, clearly, but he's also been on an episode of “Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” so you know his tween street cred is legit.
Pussycat Dolls—women dressed up like strippers? Just what the kids like! Seriously, I don't know if I would have liked that as a kid. It probably would have scared me a little.
Katy Perry—she kissed a girl, you know. You probably hadn't heard.
Jesse McCartney—another Zack and Cody veteran. Who knew this kid was still around?
Estelle—she's British and 28, which makes her far too old and too classy for this concert.
David Banner—also a little too cool for this show.
Menudo—as far as revivals go, this one falls somewhere between the new “90210” and the new “Knight Rider.”
Tokio Hotel —I learned circa the MTV Video Music Awards that these guys are popular, yet I've still not met anyone that has professed to enjoy them, heard their music or could even name one of their songs. I think that means I win.
And of course, “American Idol” host and KIIS personality Ryan Seacrest will be appearing as well, officially moving this event from “awesome” to “off the hook.”
