Jonas Brothers Back to Camp, Back on the Road

Another summer, another Jonas Brothers concert. For those who TiVo the Family Channel – or anyone with a sweet tooth for indomitably cheery pop-rock – the announcement of a JoBros North American tour has become as reliable as presents on Christmas. And this year is no different, with the boy band – now a little older, one even married – beginning their three-month trek July 27 in Dallas, TX, and eventually reaching Canadian cities Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver in the fall (tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, May 28; check below for dates).
With the passing years, fans have come to expect something from a Jonas Brothers concert apart from mild tinnitus: pure spectacle. Not content to merely play the hits and look pretty, past concerts have seen the Jonas Brothers tap dance, shoot water and (in an infamous, South Park-referenced instance) foam into the audience and execute aerial back flips. (“Because we all kind of have a background in gymnastics,” band member Nick Jonas says of that last stunt.)
Is there a stunt that would be too much? Apparently not. “It’s what we wanted to do, actually,” Nick, 17, says, responding to the above question from while on a conference call with reporters. “We have a couple of crazy ideas, and we’re always willing to put ourselves in life threatening situations. But, it’s the insurance company and some of the people surrounding us that don’t let us do it.”
