What does the future hold for the red-hot Jonas Brothers? Answer: an upcoming HotStar feature, some movies and now guaranteed income courtesy of Live Nation.
The Jonas Brothers just signed a two-year, multimillion dollar worldwide touring agreement with the promoter, which has been working similar deals with acts like Maroon 5. It is all part of a plan to build relationships with artists beyond a single, summer tour. This deal is the first of its kind for an emerging act.
"This band creates pandemonium wherever they go. They sell out dates instantly and always leave their loyal fans wanting more. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partners with them on their journey to superstardom," Live Nation’s Bruce Kapp said in a statement.
The company’s Brad Wavra added that "The Jonas Brothers are without a doubt one of the most promising young touring bands working today."
The Jonas Brothers, who have been providing support for the blockbuster Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus tour, have announced the first set of dates for what is expected to be a two-year, 140 stop trek on their own.
The group’s Look Me In The Eyes Tour kicks off January 31 at TCC Music Hall in Tucson, Ariz., and includes stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and San Antonio, Texas.
The Jonas Brothers – a phenomenon among tween girl fans and a good candidate for Disney-endorsed doll replicas – has recently seen the ultimate form of flattery: a mild backlash among YouTube users who are already rebelling against the brothers’ powerful personas.
