The company will test a new paperless system during a 45-concert tour of teen star Miley Cyrus.

Ticketmaster will require concertgoers to swipe credit cards at the concert site in order to get their seat assignments. It will offer premium seats for a higher price to earn profits that often flow to scalpers instead.

Ticketmaster is promising to have 10 people at every concert site to iron out any problems.
