Miranda Cosgrove at the Uptown

With this season's episodes of Hannah Montana marking the end of the successful Disney series — and with Miley Cyrus’ salvia bong rip heard round the world — tweens now turn to Miranda Cosgrove for salvation. As the 17-year-old pop singer and star of Nickelodeon's iCarly continues to ride the success of last year's 26-minute, eight-track release, Sparks Fly, she breezes into KC to play the first date of her U.S. tour at the Uptown Theater (3700 Broadway, 816-753-8665). Of course, she sings songs about kissing, dancing and boys, but her songs are written and produced by such industry heavy hitters as Max Martin, Ke$ha and Dr. Luke, so the bubble gum is clean and perky but also expertly made. Thirteen-year-old YouTube sensation Greyson Chance opens. Tickets start at $29.50 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster. The show begins at 7 p.m.
