Tickets Hard to Come By for Kids' Concert
Looking to see Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, et al at the Verizon Center Monday? Won't be easy to get one of the 20,000-or-so seats, reports the Post's Richard Leiby.
The inaugural committee is handling ticket distribution, and "they have told us to tell callers that no general public tickets are available," said Sheila Francis, Verizon Center's publicity director.
The committee would not comment on ticketing details. But it appears that only preselected groups -- mainly military families -- will be invited. The concert, to be hosted by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, will be broadcast live on the Disney Channel from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Update 2:04 p.m.: It's official: the tickets have gone to military families and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
