“The Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009” will present the band’s most ambitious production yet and will include a massive 140-foot plus stage centered in the arena that aims to give a larger number of Jonas Brothers fans a closer, more interactive live concert than they’ve ever experienced before. The show will feature cutting edge technology used in a one-of-a-kind circular water screen, multi-color laser effects, motion automated video screens, a giant crane levitating over the audience plus other surprises that will bring the tour to the next level of concert entertainment.
“This tour is going to be about really connecting with our fans,” says Joe Jonas. “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.”
“The Jonas Brothers are a worldwide phenomenon,” said Jason Garner, Chief Executive Officer of Global Music at Live Nation. “In 2008 their global tour included 113 concerts and drew nearly 1.2 million fans. The band is now more popular than ever — with a new movie, album, TV show and book — and we are optimistic that this summer’s tour attendance will reflect that popularity.”
“As presenting sponsor of the Jonas Brothers’ summer tour for the second year in a row, we’re planning a lot of excitement for Jonas Brothers fans beginning with the first tour stop in Dallas on June 20,” said Cindy Syracuse, senior director, cultural marketing, Burger King Corp.” We’ll be announcing plans for the ultimate HAVE IT YOUR WAY(R) Jonas Brothers 2009 experience in support of the tour over the next few months.”
