The Cheetah GirlsWalt Disney Records' multi-platinum recording group The Cheetah Girls (Adrienne Bailon, Sabrina Bryan and Kiely Williams) will embark on a 40-city concert tour beginning September 15th in Seattle, Washington. The tour comes in support of their new album, The Cheetah Girls 2, soundtrack to the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster Disney Channel Original Movie. The CD features 13 hip-hop, R&B, Latin and tango-influenced tracks performed by the tween superstars. The movie's anthem song and the soundtrack's lead single, "The Party's Just Begun," will be featured in The Cheetah Girls' set, along with favorites from the first movie and soundtrack including "Cinderella" and "Cheetah Sisters."

Purchase of The Cheetah Girls 2 soundtrack at Target stores in the U.S. beginning August 15 will include a password to purchase up to four presale tickets for most shows on the tour, subject to availability.

The Cheetah Girls began as a 2003 Disney Channel Original Movie based on the best-selling book series for kids and tweens. Within two years of the movie's debut, the group gained a large fan base, topped the soundtrack charts with a double-platinum soundtrack and enjoyed a highly-rated DVD release. In 2005, The Cheetah Girls were signed to Walt Disney Records and embarked on their first sold-out concert tour supporting their hit album Cheetah-licious Christmas.

Special guest Miley Cyrus stars in the Disney Channel Original Series Hannah Montana as high school student Miley Stewart and her secret alter-ego Hannah Montana, an international pop singing sensation. The Hannah Montana soundtrack will be released on Walt Disney Records on October 24, 2006. Miley has signed to Hollywood Records and will be releasing her debut album in 2007. Miley will perform as Hannah Montana for the first twenty dates of the tour, from September 15 to October 15.

Special guest Vanessa Anne Hudgens, best known for her performance as Gabriella Montez in the runaway hit Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical and on the triple-platinum High School Musical soundtrack, has signed a recording deal with Hollywood Records. Hudgens' debut CD, entitled V, is slated for release September 26, 2006. Vanessa will perform on the remaining 20 dates of the tour, from October 17 to November 15.
