“This tour is going to be about really connecting with our fans,” Joe said in a statement. “We’ve got new music that’s taking us in new directions, plus a mind-blowing production that’s going to surprise everyone. We want to give the audience the summer concert they’re not going to ever forget.”
Tickets for the show go on sale March 20, but fan-club members can get tickets on March 16.

“Before the TV show comes out, we have our tickets for our tour going on sale. We have the [TV] show in May, then the album, then the tour,” Kevin told MTV News about their plans for 2009. “So we have a lot of things in the pipeline. But things are looking fun right now.”…
