Jonas Brothers Making Up For Movie Disappointment

Perhaps that poor showing in the box office didn’t signify the Jonas Brothers were done after all.

The reason for the Disney megagroup’s poor turnout for their movie, Jonas Brothers: 3D Concert Experience, is becoming rather apparent. Their tour—you know, the thing where you pay a lot more but you get to see them in person in a giant room with tens of thousands of other screaming fans—has sold out huge arena venues in many major cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Pittsburgh, Edmonton, New Orleans, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. In fact, the trio sold more than 800,000 total tickets when the shows went on sale this weekend.

Jordin Sparks, as well as Honor Society, are joining the boy band for the North American leg of the tour, while Demi Lovato will help them kick off the festivities in Latin America in May.

“Ticket sales for this tour have been phenomenal,” says Jason Garner, chief executive officer for global music for Live Nation. “It’s clear to us that Jonas Brothers are a true global touring powerhouse.”

The good news follows the siblings’ big win for Favorite Music Group at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday evening.
