Once again, it was amazing to be with our fans here.
They are some of the most passionate fans in the world.
They were singing and dancing to every song (including
the new ones). You made us feel so welcomed and loved.
This was a great way to start our tour and the release
week of our NEW CD.
The power went out in the entire building on the last
note of the last song. We were very happy we were able to
complete the main show. We wish we could have done one more
for you but the power was out in the building.

Tweens worldwide will no doubt be rushing out to grab new
albums by Jonas Brothers and Ashley Tisdale. Both Disney babies
have grown a bit since their previous discs, but expect more of
the same: young love and relationship drama.

boasts some new instruments and, in their words, more metaphors,
fewer real-life references—plus a cutesy duet between rumored
rekindled couple Nick Jonas
and Miley Cyrus.
JB Strips - to Undershirts - For Fans
High-pitched screaming could be heard from several blocks
away and for one reason only: the Jonas Brothers were in town.
In a surprise announcement on their website Thursday afternoon,
the brothers – Kevin, 21, Joe, 19, and Nick, 16 – were to
perform a free concert that very night at New York's Irving
Plaza for the first 700 fans who lined up at the door.
The band performed songs from their old albums as well as a few
new tunes from their upcoming fourth album, Lines, Vines
and Trying Times, which drops June 16.
Fans were ecstatic about the band, singing along to old hits and
rocking out to new ones. By the end of the concert, the brothers
had stripped down to white v-neck undershirts as approving fans
squealed with excitement.
Nick, who has recently been spotted spending time with
ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus, 16, on Georgia's Tybee Island where
she is filming The Last Song, kept mum
throughout the concert about their friendship and didn't perform
their recent duet, "Before the Storm."
He did, however, get personal with the crowd, saying, "It's
never the end, it's a new chapter. This is how it worked in my
Reps declined to comment on whether the two are dating again.

Jonas Brothers Turn Up the Heat
The tap was firm, insistent, not timid at all. It came from
below. She was 12, maybe 13.
The voice was equally
sharp: “Can you, like, move to the back, ’cause you’re, like,
There come moments in a critic’s career when one must
sacrifice for the greater good, when the needs of one can be set
aside temporarily for the comfort of others.
Reader, the critic stayed put.
It was Thursday night at the Fillmore New York at Irving
Plaza, and the Jonas Brothers had just taken the stage. The
pushing began straightaway. The noise was beyond deafening. Real
estate was at a premium, eardrums were not.
On Tuesday the boys from Wyckoff, N.J., will release
“Lines, Vines and Trying Times” (Hollywood), their fourth and
most relaxed album, and this summer they will tour arenas. But
for the opportunity to see their stage show compressed into a
relatively tiny hot box, some violations of the social contract
were in order. (This was a secret show, made public early in the
day on Thursday through the band’s fan club and the radio
Joe, 19, wore a plaid sports coat and tousled hair; Nick,
16, a rumpled black Nehru-collar blazer with white stripes; and
Kevin, 21, a beige ruffled shirt and a series of goofy facial
expressions. As ever, they were efficient, even when packed onto
a stage with 10 band members, including a newly added four-piece
horn section that made for a couple of E Street Band moments.
Nick was firm and refined, a classic singer-songwriter in
the making, as seen in an assured version of “Black Keys,”
played solo at the piano. His anchor was needed, as Joe veered
from loose to looser. During older songs like “Hold On” and
“That’s Just the Way We Roll,” he seemed caught in some sort of
private trance, undulating Jim Morrison-like at center stage and
mouthing the words while Nick manned the steering wheel. For
most of the night, Kevin kept clear of any microphones, though
on “Turn Right” he spun off a flamboyant guitar solo, standing
wide-stance atop the piano in a lone moment of unfettered glory.
On “Lines, Vines and Trying Times,” the Jonas Brothers
continue to specialize in the smartly straightforward: neatly
constructed pop-rock songs with shades of the Beatles and the
Brill Building. (An exception is the inscrutable getaway caper
“Don’t Charge Me for the Crime,” featuring the rapper Common,
with echoes of the Police.)
But they’re beginning to reach further afield musically,
with faint touches of ska (“Keep It Real”) and country (“What
Did I Do to Your Heart”). “Before the Storm” manages to be both
Nashville and Hollywood: it’s a lovely breakup ballad with Nick
and his ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus. (She did not appear at the
show.) It’s also a brilliant stroke of tabloid-baiting and
homage-paying to the pop tradition of exes’ working out their
issues in song.
Sometimes, though, there’s no reconciling to be done. Last
year the young country star Taylor Swift went public with the
details of her breakup with Joe Jonas, a subject on which he
remained largely quiet. “Much Better,” a slick white-soul number
from the new album, ends that silence.
“Got a rep for breaking hearts,” Joe sings. “Now I’m done
with superstars/and all the tears on her guitar/I’m not bitter.”
All over “Lines, Vines and Trying Times” are signs of
incipient frustration with women, something of a tectonic shift
for a group for which self-professed chastity has been an
engine. There were traces of this dissatisfaction on the group’s
last album, “A Little Bit Longer,” which was released last
summer, particularly on the track “Video Girl,” a shocking lump
of cynicism dropped cold in the middle of a batch of songs about
enthusiastic, incomprehensible love. Even on the dreamy
“Lovebug” they were skeptical: “Honesty is just so hard to
But there’s no getting around the lessons 10 months of
megastardom will teach you. On the very first line of the new
album, on “World War III,” Nick sings about fighting with, um,
an intimate: “I walked into the bedroom/You were visibly
upset/Telling me I made a bad move.” By the sound of his voice,
he’s not singing about a parent.
“We’ve been through a lot this past year,” Nick said
midshow. “We’re all growing older. There’s depth in our eyes.”
But what about in their perspective? The power-poppy
“Poison Ivy” reads like crude metaphor: “I just got back from
the doctor/He told me that I had a problem/I realized it’s you.”
And at the hook, it’s no kinder: “Everybody gets the
itch/Everybody hates that ...”
The line stops there, but hundreds of girls in this
sweltering room needed no prompt to fill in the rhyme. They
almost sounded sympathetic.
JB on Good Morning America
JB Gives Free Concert In NYC!!!
NEW YORK — After walking onto the stage to Queen’s “We Will
Rock You,” the brothers known as Jonas didn’t disappoint the 700
or so lucky fans who got the chance to see an intimate secret
show Thursday night at Irving Plaza.
The guys kicked
off the night with the sound of horns and screams as they played
their new single, “Paranoid.” We’re gonna play some new songs,”
Joe told the very excited crowd. “We’re the Jonas Brothers.” No
Next up, the JoBros rocked out “Poison Ivy,” off the new
album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, out Tuesday. Joe requested
that the crowd “give me some poison ivy.” (Sounds pleasant.) The
guys were dressed down, and seemed both excited and relaxed to
play their new tracks. For pop stars, their show was definitely
high voltage, and adding to the volume of their standard
rock-band setup were a horn and a string section.
Then the guys played an older favorite, “Hold On,” and the
crowd didn’t miss a word or a beat.
“It’s good to be home,” declared Joe, who grew up with his
brothers in nearby Wyckoff, New Jersey.
The guys harked back to their “Camp Rock” days and
performed the crowd-pleasing “Play My Music,” during which Kevin
spun around, doing his patented guitar-playing dance.
Nick sat down at the piano for “Black Keys” and told the
crowd mysteriously, “We’ve been through a lot this past year.
Sometimes it’s better to see things plain and simple. Black and
Then they certainly kicked it up with their breakup song,
“Much Better,” which is presumably an ode to Joe’s ex, Taylor
Swift. And it was certainly the highlight of the night when
Kevin jumped up on the platform and busted out a rocking guitar
solo. Nick addressed the song’s lyrics telling the crowd, “As
you can see we have a lot to talk about.”
Then they played older classics (hey, 2006 was a long time
ago for most JoBros fans) like “Year 3000″ and “Tonight.” Joe
told the crowd, “It’s good to see you guys again. We love you
He proceeded to serenade the ladies with “Gotta Find You.”
After reminding the audience to come to their shows, they pumped
out their power ballad, “When You Look Me in the Eyes.”
They brought the energy back up (not that it ever went
anywhere) when they sang “Be Be Good,” during which Joe told the
elated crowd, “I want to kiss you.”
After the guys played another new track, “World War III,”
the fans sang along to “Lovebug.” Actually, the Jonas boys could
have left the singing entirely to the audience, who also didn’t
need an “SOS,” when that song came on.
That was supposedly the last song of the night, but the
brothers made it pretty clear that an encore was all ready to
go. Just a minute or two later, they began playing chords to
“Burnin’ Up,” and that’s where the guys ended the show for the
First, it was the Beyoncé fans. Then it was Justin Timberlake
on "Saturday Night Live." And sometime last week, months after
the song dominated radio airwaves and YouTube, a video of Joe
Jonas doing his rendition of the "Single Ladies" dance popped up
online. It's already attracted close to 4 million views.
The video made many wonder why Joe decided to release a
video of himself donned up in a leotard and heels for Beyoncé's
girl power anthem so late in the game. But the middle JoBro
explained to MTV News that it was not entirely his idea.
"We filmed the video for the fans," Jonas said. "We did a
contest where we were figuring out what would you like Joe to
do, and you pick one [out of three choices]. One was play bongos
for 10 minutes, one was wrestle with [our bodyguard] Big Rob and
one was do the 'Single Ladies' dance. I've only seen [Beyoncé's]
video like maybe twice in my life, and we filmed it twice, so
... it was cool."
Although doing a dance he barely knew did pose a problem
for the 19-year-old, there was a bigger issue during his
performance: "Heels are really hard to wear. I feel bad for
every girl that has to wear heels or chooses to wear heels," he
said. "They're not fun."
The video caused such a sensation that when the Jonas
Brothers YouTube site went down for a few hours, fans thought
that someone had put the smack-down on it. But Nick assured
everyone that was not the case at all. "There was a glitch in
the system, for like a couple of hours," he said. "But it was
As far as Joe knows, Beyoncé and her people haven't tried
to take down his homage. "It may look like it was bad, like
somebody, Beyoncé, got upset, but it was all good," he said.
"It's back up now."
Nick Talks About Duet with Miley & Their Relationship
Two blasts of Jonas Brothers news in one day! What an
embarrassment of riches.
Nick Jonas tells Twist
magazine about "Before the Storm," his new duet with Miley
Cyrus that covers the emotions behind the couple's breakup.
Here's what he tells
"There's two versions of the song basically, one that
was written just for our record that we sang originally. And
then I played it for Miley and we realized that if we just
changed the lyrics a bit, we could make it more of our
story, kind of share that side of us, and it could be great.
So, we did. She came in and she and I sat down at the piano
and just worked on lyrics a bit, tweaked it up, and it
turned out great!"
So there you have it. Any reaction out there, Jonas
My personal favorite is "Turn Right". :) It just stresses the
emotion in the song!!
