The Jonas Brothers tour will now kick off two weeks later in August and includes second shows in several North American cities including Holmdel, NJ, Jones Beach, NY, Boston, MA and Toronto, ON. Some previously announced North American Live In Concert tour shows are no longer on the 2010 routing. This news comes after the Jonas Brothers have had issues selling tickets to their shows, and even rid the Ticketmaster fee’s for buyers to motivate higher sales, of which didn’t improve much.
The full Jonas Brothers tour production configuration and staging featuring 6 columns of moving video screens creating a massive 40′ x 24′ HD video wall, three catwalks up to 40′ feet long as well as other thrilling special effects will be taken to both Latin America and Europe resulting in an even more exciting concert experience to Jonas Brothers fans around the world.

According to The Daily Beast, The Jonas Brothers are no longer what girls desire, which does not bode well for season 2 of their Disney show.
Just two years ago, the Jonas Brothers were being compared to the Beatles. They had a platinum album. They were clean-cut and well-scrubbed, but they were also respected for their catchy pop music that drove young girls to shrieking sessions. In the past year, they’ve struck out with album sales, and starred in both a ratings-challenged TV show and a failed 3-D concert movie.
Disney’s focus-group research, exclusively obtained by The Daily Beast, might explain why: According to the interviews, the Jonas Brothers are fast losing the very fanbase that propelled them to the heights of stardom. These studies show that the same young girls that just a few years ago couldn’t get enough of the rosy cheeks and luscious locks of Kevin, Joe, and Nick, are growing up and leaving their crushes behind.
Disney seems to have foreseen the shift reported in its market research, and has drastically revamped the Jonas Brothers’ Disney Channel show, the second season of which premieres Sunday. Now titled Jonas L.A., as opposed to just Jonas, the show, which stumbled in the ratings its first outing, has been made to resemble a saccharine version of Entourage. According to a source who has seen episodes of the show, the JoBros have sushi parties. They go golfing. And of course, there is romance—though nothing gets too racy, considering that the Disney Channel allows only one kiss per season.
From the start, however, the Jonases posed a unique challenge, seeing as they were already a popular music group when Disney brought them into the family back in 2006. Thus there was always the threat of overexposure, something that was never a fear with an unknown like, say, Lovato. The privileged, and very sexy, reality of the Jonases’ actual lives also made them hard to sell as ordinary kids who just happened to—surprise!—have hidden talents, the conceit behind most of the Disney teeny-bopper narratives, from Cyrus’ Hannah Montana to Duff’s Lizzie McGuire.
This may have been why the first season of Jonas, in which the brothers played high-school kids, didn’t take off the way Disney hoped. As one executive at a rival network said, “The concept was disingenuous, and kids sniff out inauthenticity. It’s hard to make the Jonas Brothers regular kids when they’re already superstars. I think that’s what probably alienated their fanbase.”
But even if Jonas L.A. fixes this problem—living the high life in Los Angeles is much more in vein with how the Jonases live off-camera—there’s no doubt that the trio is at a crossroads. Having entered their twenties (with the exception of Nick, who’s 17), it’s getting harder to deny their maturation, from Kevin’s marriage to Nick’s recent solo album (another disappointment).
“Justin Bieber is definitely the next new thing and is overshadowing the Jonas Brothers. But Bieber doesn’t have the marketing power of Disney behind him, which can’t be discounted.”
But as the market research indicates, it won’t be easy to reverse the tide. Disney is committed to trying, though. “They’re doing everything to hold on to the brand,” said a source familiar with their thinking “Or, at least, trying to milk every last drop out of them before they’re dead.

It seems as though not only did the last Jonas Brothers album do poorly, but their concert ticket sales for their upcoming world tour are not selling well either. Could it be that the Jonas Brothers craze is finally settling down?
The last album the brothers put out, ‘Lines, Vines, and Trying Times’ was released to poor reviews and even worse sales, bringing in less than a quarter million album sales the first week. Youngest brother, Nick Jonas, brought in even worse sales for his solo album, with 80,000 purchases. After their 3D movie fail, and two unsuccessful albums, it was inevitable and no surprise that their tour sales would go down as well.
After playing free shows for any fans that would show up in major cities, the Jonas took on a new world tour in promotion for their upcoming Disney film, Camp Rock 2. Sharing the stage with their co-star, Demi Lovato, the world tour sounded promising, but quickly proved otherwise.
Within three weeks of tickets being on sale, all of their concert tickets stopped selling the seats with service fees, a move the Jonas said, to help all of their fans afford the show. With thousands of open seats still available despite the change and lower price, tickets are still open, and not bought.
No word on what will happen if a majority of tickets are still un-sold at the time of the performance, but one thing is for sure, the Jonas Brothers are no longer at the height of their careers.

Trevor Boris, who writes the MuchMusic Video Awards script every year, chatted with Toronto Sun about Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.
‘I feel like Miley is going to be a little more open, that she’s trying to be a bit more grown-up and edgy these days. Last year, with the Jonas Brothers hosting, there were all these weird rules. Like, they wouldn’t say the word panties.’
And I can’t even remember why we were trying to say panties. But they had this long list of things they wouldn’t say. It is funny some of the things you run into when the artists. Maybe we can get Miley to say panties. So if you hear Miley say panties, you know, ‘A-ha, the writers have succeeded.’
Sometimes the magical stuff is the stuff that comes together fast. For example, last year at the very last minute, the Jonas Brothers said, ‘Yes, we’re totally up for a skit.’ It was 4 o’clock the day of the show. So we’re scrambling, but we come up with a great idea, we film it in like 20 minutes, literally just before they were going to do the red carpet.
In the end we didn’t get it cut in time and it didn’t make the show, although it did make MuchOnDemand, and we do a behind-the-scenes special and it made that, too.’

Justin Bieber admitted that he could take on all three of the Jonas Brothers in a fight if he wanted to, because he’s a beast!
Justin laughed: ‘Oh, I could take all three Jonas Brothers. I’m a beast! Supposedly there’s a war between my fans and Jonas Brothers fans, but basically we’re all friends. I love you all, but why do you guys have to fight?’

Live Nation is eliminating service fees for reserved and lawn seats purchased in June for shows at its 50 amphitheaters. Live Nation CEO said: ‘This is every show in every amphitheater. Basically, our entire summer inventory.’ About 60% of fans said dropped fees were the deciding factor in purchasing.
Jonas Brothers are offering fee-free tickets to their tour and promoting with a fanclub show Wednesday in Washington. Nick said: ‘With the tough economy, my brothers and I wanted to do something. We have a close relationship with our fans, and this is one way to help them out.
Growing up our family financial situation wasn’t that great, and we’d have to refrain from going to concerts.’ Kevin Jonas Sr., added: ‘I’ll speak as a dad. It can be difficult to buy one ticket, much less three or four. When you eliminate any fees, it makes it much more possible.’

Demi Lovato admitted that in fact, she and boyfriend Joe Jonas have SPLIT.
The seventeen-year-old Tweeted, “There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. I’d like to clear a few things up. First, Joe and I did split but it wasn’t over the phone. Things didn’t work out but we’ll remain friends. Secondly, I am NOT dating anybody already. Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans.. Just thought you guys should know this.”

A story broke today that Joe Jonas is soon to be a father of two children.
The rumor began when an alleged story broke when a woman, claiming to be the Jonas Brothers assistant called into a radio station and admitted that one Jonas has a drug problem, and that another who is not married is soon to possibly be a father if the paternity tests come back positive in a few weeks.
The Jonas Brothers are known for not going into their personal life, talking about their once made promise rings anymore, and well, keeping their private life, private.
A rep for the Jonas Group wrote us saying, “The claims made to KISS107 were not made by a Jonas assistant, and are completely false. These claims in no way reflect the ending relationship between he and Miss Lovato.”
What do you think of the claims?

Nick Jonas addressed this issue via Billboard saying, “As far as the next Jonas Brothers album, I think we’re working on what that’s going to sound like, just taking our time and trying to make something great, no matter what that sounds like. Hopefully 2011 is the timeline, but we’re not sure just yet.
And we’re in no rush. We’re writing a lot of music but in no rush to release an album in any time period.’
Kevin, ’Will Nick Jonas and the Administration have an effect? Potentially. Nick went on a musical journey with that album Joe and I supported, and we’re so proud of that project. His influences and things he put into that may come out in new Jonas Brothers songs. We’re taking that journey right now, allowing it to take as much time as is needed for it.’
Nick, ‘I think we felt releasing four albums in three and a half years might be a bit of an overload.’
Nick noted that the brothers did not write songs for Camp Rock 2:‘We had some songwriters listen to our music and.. write some tunes we feel we would’ve done anyway. There’s something for everyone, there’s R&B, there’s hip-hop and then there’s kind of our more pop-rock sound. So many different sounds that I think will really attract people to the film. We’re excited for the fans to hear it this summer.’

Touring with the Jonas Brothers would be an amazing experience for any young singer. For Demi Lovato, it’s extra special – it means she gets to spend the whole summer with boyfriend Joe Jonas.
“I’m fortunate that I get to work with the person that I’m in the relationship with,” the singer-actress, 17, tells PEOPLE. “Rather than being across the country and texting him, I can have him hold my hand when I’m tired.”
Lovato and Jonas, 20, who stepped out publicly as a couple for the first time in March, met while filming Camp Rock. That pre-romance time, Lovato says, was pretty sweet, too.
“We weren’t together at the time,” she says. “So, it was just working with my best friend. It was awesome. And now that we’re in a relationship, it’s even better, because we may be tired, but we have each other to be there.”
How psyched is Joe to have Demi on the tour, which kicks off July 27 in Dallas? “It’s going to be really exciting,” he says.“Touring with Demi is going to be a lot of fun. It’ll be different this time, but it will be fun.”
