Saturday's AT&T Center concert will be the Jonas Brothers' fifth in San Antonio. A look at the other four:
June 21, 2007 The brothers kicked off the summer concert series at Six Flags Fiesta Texas just before the mania was to begin in earnest when, after being dropped by Sony and signing with Hollywood Records, their second album, "The Jonas Brothers," debuted at No. 5 in August. The Weekender concert listing described them as "a trio of teenage New Jersey brothers whose 2006 debut, 'It's About Time,' sparked comparisons with Hanson."
Nov. 12, 2007 The group made a two-pronged return, opening for the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus show at the AT&T Center and appearing at a preshow, in-studio appearance at KXXM-FM (Mix 96.1). The five-song, unplugged promotional concert for 80 contest winners was as much a screamfest as the big show that night. "It was insane," program director Tony Travatto said.
Feb. 12, 2008 Nothing says San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo like a visit from the teen idols. The brothers played on the rotating stage in the rodeo ring for a sold-out throng of 16,000.
Aug. 13, 2009 Back at the AT&T Center but without bull-riding and mutton-busting for an opening act, the Jonases unveiled an in-the-round setup for 17,000 screaming fans, mostly 'tween and teen girls and their moms. And some 500 fans got to run with Joe Jonas at a charity 5K fun run that morning.
