Date:8/8/2008

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fans of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers will have more reasons to cheer this September, when the Disney Music Group artists take the stage with other performers at Disney's Concert for Hope, a benefit concert supporting cancer research and treatment programs at City of Hope. It will be held Sunday, September 14, at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City. Tickets for the concert will be available Saturday, August 16 at 10am through LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.com, at all Ticketmaster retail outlets including all Macy's, FYE Music & Ritmo Latino locations, and via TM Charge by Phone -- (213) 480-3232 -- (714) 740-2000 -- (805) 583-8700. A portion of the tickets will be auctioned through Ticketmaster.com.

"We are honored and grateful for the generosity of Disney, Creative Artists Agency and the dedication of Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers in supporting the lifesaving work of City of Hope," said Michael A. Friedman, M.D., president and chief executive officer, City of Hope. "This Concert for Hope demonstrates their commitment to improving the lives of patients with cancer and to helping create a future in which cancer is not only treatable, but curable and preventable."

The concert continues Disney and Cyrus' support of City of Hope. Last year, Disney donated $1 from every ticket sold during her highly successful "Best of Both Worlds" concert tour to cancer research at City of Hope. The concert series raised more than $1 million.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 1,437,180 people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2008, and more than 10,700 of these people will be children under the age of 15. As a Comprehensive Cancer Center, the highest designation bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope has achieved numerous scientific breakthroughs and pioneered many lifesaving procedures that have impacted treatment worldwide. Every day, City of Hope's team of researchers aggressively study the science behind childhood cancers to help bring new therapies to children as fast and safely as possible.

Inspired by the humanitarian principles of City of Hope, and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and quality patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the Music and Entertainment Industry chapter in 1973. In 35 years of dedicated efforts, the chapter has grown to include all the major music labels such as Universal Music Group, Disney Music Group and Warner Bros. The industry has raised more than $69 million through benefits, promotions and partnerships to support ongoing programs at City of Hope.

About Miley Cyrus

The multitalented Miley Cyrus has captivated kids and families on Disney Channel's smash hit comedy series "Hannah Montana," the hugely popular TV series for kids age 6-14. Her triple platinum Hannah Montana soundtrack became the first ever TV soundtrack to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2007, the 15-year old followed that record with a two-disc set, Hannah Montana 2 / Meet Miley Cyrus, which also entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and has since earned triple-platinum status. Cyrus became the youngest artist to have two No. 1 hits in less than a year.

In late January, Cyrus completed a 70-date sold out concert tour and by early February had the No. 1 film in the country with the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D release, "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert." Her album "Breakout" on Hollywood Records debuted at #1 this month. Walt Disney Studios' "Hannah Montana: The Movie" will be in theatres in spring 2009 and production has resumed on the "Hannah Montana" TV series.
