BREAKING: Jonas Brothers cancel tour due to "deep rift within the band"; future uncertain
Oh the humanity!!
Two days before their fall tour was set to begin, the men of the Jonas Brothers have canceled all 19 of their shows, according to People.
The cancelation was confirmed by Jesse Derris, a representative for the Jonas Brothers, who told the publication, "There is a deep rift within the band."
"There was a big a disagreement over their music direction," he continued.
Fans who bought tickets for the shows, which were scheduled for big cities including Boston, New York City, and Seattle, will receive refunds for their purchases. A radio DJ in Pennsylvania, where the boys' first show was scheduled, announced earlier today that the show would not be taking place.
Made up of brothers Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas, the Jonas Brothers released their first album, "It's About Time," in 2006. They saw the most success with their 2008 album "A Little Bit Longer," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and went platinum. The band was expected to release a fifth studio album, "V," later this year.
The Jonas Brothers have yet to comment on the future of the album or the band.
Look over there! Don't pay attention to the failed singles or the unsold concert tickets!!
Nick can direct his big diabetic cock into my deep rift.
Oh, the humidity!
LOL R1 hit the nail on the head.
Wouldn't future direction of the band be discussed AFTER a scheduled tour had been completed? R1 must be correct!
R1 is correct.
Pay attention Bieber.
Their plummet to obscurity has FINALLY begun.
The Jonas Brothers were NEVER as awful as Bieber. The end of Bieber as a pop culture force can't come soon enough.
I knew their band popularity was in a downward spiral because recently they were trying to attract gay fans with their appearance on WWHL,Out magazine and Nick showing his muscles..when before they didn't want to do anything with the gay community ...
r9, gay baiting is the next big thing
R1 is probably correct.
Which one of the Jonas vaginas is the meth/heroin junkie?
Not a good idea to piss off the few remaining fans they have by cancelling the tour 2 days before it's supposed to start.
Maybe they can all do a Broadway revival of a 1960's show like Nick did. He stunk and the show closed prematurely. Back to reality shows.
oh please~ they obviously couldn't sell the tickets.
Now how is Joe going to get anonymous dick?
This will not end well.
Wait for their PR team to "leak" a story about Kevin and Joe fighting over a woman.
They're big in Taiwan.
These guys are really fucked now.
In 2010, they scheduled an arena tour and ended up canceling a bunch of the dates. Interest in them had obviously plummeted, as they were selling out those same venues just a year or two earlier.
In the time since, they left Disney (or were more likely dropped) and they were going to self release this new album. This new tour was much, much smaller venues -- 3,000-5,000 seat theaters and large clubs as opposed to 12K and up seat arenas.
The thing is, they could've made some decent money. Hanson set themselves up as an indie act 15 years ago, and they make a tidy living selling tons of shit directly to fans and touring clubs.
Now, the Jonas Brothers have booked, and canceled, tour dates twice in many, many major markets. That's going to kill off a lot of what's left of a dwindling fan base.
On top of that, their solo careers were all flops. The only Jonas to have any significant success is the oldest one, who has a reality show.
They had a good run though. Millions of albums and singles. Lots of hits. At their peak they were awesome. It's a shame that family bickering and heroin tore them apart.
It's a shame they're breaking up. "MMM Bop" was always one of my favorite songs.
[quote]It's a shame they're breaking up. "MMM Bop" was always one of my favorite songs.
Oh no, dear...that was Hansen.
Who will ever forget "Young and Proud" as well as "The Sign"?
R23, I for one never will given that I've never heard them.
Are you joking or using sarcasm?
Or which Jonas brother used or is using heroin?
Joe? Joes seems a little strange.
If there is conflict, I am not surprised that three brothers cannot agree. Conflict would seem fairly common among brothers.
Kevin is so silly for wanting a baby so soon in his marriage. He could have put off child raising for years.
I think it was Nick's OD that delayed release of "Love You Madly" and "Short Skirt/Long Jacket". Crazy times, crazy times.
Damn You Obamacare!!!
Kevin forgot to wash off Joe's vibrator again.
.... they are still a thing?
I really think they were one of the most talented acts in modern music. Its a crying shame that they can't get along anymore. Maybe they'll all be huge solo stars. They all have he talent. I can't wait to see what's next for them. I will definitely follow them in their future endeavors. They all have the potential to go head to head with Bieber, Timberlake and Chris Brown. No doubt about it.
R25, there was a blind item some time ago that made people think Joe was addicted to heroin.
I think he just dabbles.
I'm still waiting for "Little Jimmy" Jonas and then Marie Jonas to show up to try to keep the family business going.
Branson, here they cum!
Joe was probably after Nick's "deep rift" again...
The little youngest brother - way younger than Joe, Nick, and Kevin - is too homely and dorky looking and dorky acting to be on stage as a prominent performer. He's just not attractive, not even moderately.
Does that little brother even play an instrument or sing?
Kevin seems to have an inferior voice for singing. On his reality show, one episode showed him being a deficient singer.
He's probably a good guitar player and maybe a composer (not sure about the writing/composing talent) but is the episode was accurate, not a very good singer.
Kevin is supposedly recording a new solo single, a cover of Marie Osmond's "Paper Roses"
Joe goes through radical changes in his looks.
So radical that you can barely recognize him at times.
Lately, he was combing all his hair forward in an ugly prince valiant manner and looked dorky and not attractive. I don't understand why he would comb all his hair forward like that unless he was balding.
He also went from from being skinny and lean when younger to a bit hefty with wide hips.
Kevin's wife came off as strange on Kevin and his wife's reality show on E! channel.
I know it is difficult not come off as kind of strange on reality shows though.
She came off as annoying. (but again, it's fairly easy to come off as annoying on reality shows)
She was quite attractive when Kevin first met her and when they were dating. But she soon changed, seemingly into a different person.
R31, sarcastic or delusional?
They should have done a concert tour of gyms and bath houses.
R32, it's a lot more than just dabbling. That dude is strung out.
Personally, I think the rift is all about Joe wanting to come out.
R22, Way to step on r21's joke.
All three of those boys need a good twerking!!! That'll knock some sense into them!
Both Kevin and Joe seem like they might be gay or bisexual. But particularly Kevin. But Kevin decided to be married and have a baby.
Well, R45, if a man is married to a woman and his children, he is heterosexual... as God made him. A homosexual man would never marry a woman.
They are no Backstreet Boys, that's for sure.
One wonders what the parents of the Jonas Brothers think about everything pertaining to their three sons.
R47 I think Kevin and Joe are, very closeted, but "backstreet" boys none-the-less.
They were never that popular even at their "peak." I was barely aware of them, and I was in their target demographic.
I don't know if I have ever heard a song performed by the Jonas Brothers.
And everything should be judged on what YOU happen to be aware of in the world, R50.
Seriously, r51. I can't think of one, and I was only peripherally aware of the Jonas Brothers when they were charting artists. The number of threads about such minor celebrities like them on DL over the years have been ridiculous. And I have a suspicion that most of the posters are actually 40 year-old men, which is just concerning.
That sucks for them.
I don't think it was ticket sales. They would have cancelled certain dates, not the entire tour.
How long until we hear Joe is in rehab? Or dead? He's the only one with a drug rep.
R50 I was in their target demo as well and never heard a song from them or was really aware of them. The most I've ever seen them mentioned has been on here.
R53, what a strange deficient perspective you have.
There are 100's and 1000's of artists who are worth discussing who do not chart and/or do not have mass celebrity nor mass awareness nor mass appeal.
The Jonas Brother had there own Disney show.
R57, what is your provenance, my dear?
sorry, their, not there
So did Cinderella, R57.
(((((( I ))))))) had a Disney show..
Can I start you with an appetizer ?
Everything I know about these people I learned from South Park. And the episode didn't bash them as much as what Disney was using them for.
Nick and Joe are tired of carrying the ugly one.
[quote]On top of that, their solo careers were all flops. The only Jonas to have any significant success is the oldest one, who has a reality show.
That's your idea of success? Nick has a future on Broadway id he wants it.
I agree with other posters who don't acknowledge their fame. I don't think they were ever as successful as their media coverage suggested. The press and gossip sites kept trying to make them happen, but they never really did. That's why most of the posters never heard of their music. They just weren't that big.
They were as big as Bieber, briefly.
The married brother is so obviously gay, is his wife really that dumb or is she actually shrewd enough to be in on it?
Alan from The Hangover is going to be so disappointed.
On Kevin's reality show, his wife did not seem bright. And she certainly is not worldly or educated or savvy.
Before she met Kevin or even while they were dating, she was on a path to become a hairdresser. That was her New Jersey girl dream.
People can be aware of the Jonas Brothers and not have heard their music or be able to recognize their music.
The Jonas Brothers have personas outside of their music as a group.
They're a Disney-created version of Debbie Gibson - without the airplay.
Disney is done with them.
How could they be so stupid to cancel a tour over a simple disagreement. How childish can you get?
I get a kick out of how Nick likes older women.
His previous girlfriend before the current one was 25 or 26 while he was 19, and they were together at least a year or more.
And I think his current girlfriend might be older too.
Nick is swoon material.
[quote]How could they be so stupid to cancel a tour over a simple disagreement. How childish can you get?
Groups break up over simple disagreements.
R72, and surely they knew what songs they would be playing at the concerts since they cancelled only two days before the concerts were to begin.
So it appears that the strong disagreements lie in composing and creating and producing their upcoming album.
It's funny how Joe was living the life his parents apparently wanted him to live, even wearing an abstinence or purity ring as did his brothers - but then a few years ago, Joe moved to California - Los Angeles or Hollywood - got his own house there and started living a Hollywood lifestyle.
Nick probably did somewhat the same.
Both Nick and Joe had sex before marriage despite the purity rings - the purity rings only went so far and only to a certain age.
Kevin was out in New Jersey and bought a big NJ house and put his wife in it.
Sometimes brothers just don't get along
I think the original speculations were correct. While there may be issues among the Jonai, the tour was cancelled due to poor ticket sales and a complete lack of interest in them from the public. If you can't even fill a small venue anymore, it's just embarrassing and not worth the expense of taking the show on the road.
Or the junkie one can't handle it.
Could be accurate, R79, but Dataloungers are always the first to incorrectly spout off that certain artists 'can no longer fill their venues enough for concerts' when it is not true.
And some Dataloungers live in such a small narcissistic world that they think if they have not heard of something or someone, then it doesn't exist or isn't worth thinking or hearing about.
[quote] I was barely aware of them, and I was in their target demographic
You are a 14 year old girl? That is their target demographic.
Can you imagine that some of the dumbos here claim to have liked their "music"?
When the only reason to give them a thought is because of their well-developed and perky asses?
"When the only reason to give them a thought is because of their well-developed and perky asses?"
True, as well as Joe's wide, child-bearing hips.
[quote]Everything I know about these people I learned from South Park. And the episode didn't bash them as much as what Disney was using them for.
True. They became a joke even before their Disney show JONAS.
I still don't understand why the fugly one, the one who wasn't lusted after, was set up in a fake marriage. Joe went on to live his life as he chose in Europe with his peen posse, with only an occasional photo op with his beard du jour.
Are the Jonai white?
Nick and Joe are honorary black dudes because of the ASS
They performed at the 2008 VMA's. That was my senior year of high school and I remember jacking off to the promotional images from that album.

And it caused your stuttering, R87 / R88.
I need Nick's fat butt to fart in my face
To words: One Direction. This will be you in 24 months.
I couldn't for the life of me remember a single song the Jonas Bros. ever did, so I looked them up on Youtube and omg were they awful! It was almost like they were tone-deaf. No wonder they were never big stars, contrary to what some posters here believe. They were really more tabloid/media celebrities than actual celebrities the public cared about and whose product they actually bought.
Hey, just for fun, troll-dar R80 and watch the whole thread turn yellow. She is one obsessed queen. How old are you, R80?
[quote]Could be accurate, [R79], but Dataloungers are always the first to incorrectly spout off that certain artists 'can no longer fill their venues enough for concerts' when it is not true
I think somebody checked Ticketmaster and found that some venues had more unsold seats than sold seats.
R95, just because you're learned to dump your cookies in order to appear pristine don't think you haven't branded yourself as a typical DL troll with your nastiness, irrelevancies and crooked meanness.
Sometimes one post is enough to display it all.
But, more to the point, the thread didn't exactly turn yellow. Why, I myself have seen entire 600-posts glow golden from my posts. (Here, I think, just two, the other referring to the only asset the Jonas Brothers offer the world, and even that's starting to overplump and sag.)
R50 and R55, you guys must be about 15 years old if you were in their target demographic, which was 10-year-olds who watch the Disney.
[quote]There are 100's and 1000's of artists who are worth discussing who do not chart and/or do not have mass celebrity nor mass awareness nor mass appeal.
Freak who has posted 1000 times in this thread, the Jonas brothers are not "artists," and the issue isn't that they are some arty little niche band only music geeks know about. They did, for five minutes, have mass appeal—to masses of tween girls, which is why it's disturbing that you, who are probably a 40+ year-old man, are this into them.
[quote]They did, for five minutes, have mass appeal—to masses of tween girls, which is why it's disturbing that you, who are probably a 40+ year-old man, are this into them.
I am not the least bit "disturbed" by a 40+ year-old man being interested in pop musicians who are 15 years younger. I am disturbed by judgmental pricks.
In this contact "deep rift" clearly means "lack of ticket sales."
I can never keep them straight. Which is the good looking one?
Saw Nick today on 23rd St. in Chelsea walking alone with his usual puss face. He doesn't look pumped up in clothes. Cute guy- nothing special. No one ran up to him for his autograph.
They have that same half-squint as Chaz Bono that says, "I'm absent-mindedly peeing myself".
It's about time they went away. I'll never forgive them for what they did to Kids in America. And I don't mean just the Kim Wilde song but the collective taste of this nation's young buying public.
Isn't the cute diabetic(less rat-faced) brother a Broadway star?
He's appeared on Broadway, but he has not yet originated a role.
I am with R101:
There are 3, with 2 of them probably gay:
Nick: Broadway replacement for Daniel Radcliffe - the one most likely to be straight, posted a hunky shirtless selfie
Joe : Model-like good looks now going to hell, rumored to be on drugs and to have hired Erik Rhodes
Kevin = The least attractive, now married but by most accounts flamingly gay
Is that right?
Have they made enough money so that they don't have to work anymore?
I sure hope not, R108.
Nick needs a gay porn career.
I am a sucker for cheesy pop aimed at teens and cute boybanders. I actively tried to find some Jonas Brothers music to like and failed with every album. I'm sure they sold many CDs and had huge concerts but I never heard their music on mainstream radio and for good reason. It's completely forgettable.
Lol are they biracial ? That's the only "bi" I think. They are.
Seriously, only coming out will help them, but they burned the last bridge with that anti-gay interview
R67 Well if you, some random on a gossip site knows he's gay, of course the wife fucking knows.
I admit I thought of poor ticket sales when I saw this news but maybe the rift thing is true. I could imagine resenting being in a band like that with my siblings as I get older and maybe want to be more 'serious' or cool.
It's funny, I don't actually find Nick that attractive even though DL does.. although he is cute and physically fit, so it's a visceral thing. Joe does look strung out and weak somehow these days (see picture). Kevin seems quite nice to me.
R119, thank you. It's not surprising, well except the part about his having a girlfriend.
Wow, that "Blind Gossip" site is saying right out that Joe Jonas is a heroin addict? If that's not 100% true they can be sued for libel.
His GF, who the blind item claims is who got him hooked doesn't look like a heroin addict. She is healthy looking with plump legs. Most Heroin users have muscle wasting and don't look healthy. She looks too health to be a heavy user. I know nothing about him or much about The Jonas Bros in general, but were they part of the Disney program? Were they produced by Disney or did they just work closely with them?
I think Disney needs to be investigated to find out why so many of their actors/ singers, etc have so many struggles. While there are some who seem to escape the issues, like Gosling, Timberlake, maybe Hilary Duff, many others are a mess. And I suspect there are more that we don't know about who were not the main stars of Disney but were messed up none the less.
Disney should be required to have some sort of counseling program or something for these kids are their families, and only kids with families who are somewhat functional, ie, not the Lohan's for example should be recruited to work with Disney.
Name the Disney kids from the last 15 years who have done well and who have outwardly struggled;
Well: Timberlake, Gosling, Gomez (maybe), Duff ( not a big success but seems Ok)
Struggled: Spears, Aquilera, Lainey (from Hilary Duff's show) Lohan, The Kid from Jett Jackson, Lee Thompson, Shia, Eric Von Detten, Miley, Demi Lovato, Efron. Others?
Cory Monteith was on heroin and did not look skinny or sick at all.
It would be cool if our society expected, and thus accepted, that failed male entertainers have no recourse other than to fall into gay porn and walk through the wilderness. Some of them then could work their way back into their former careers. This would be so much more interesting than people going to rehab.
You forgot Amanda Heynes, plus that black guy from Rizzoli and Isles who just killed himself. I have a ton more but we could easily look this up on google.
You're somewhat naive though and foolish about human nature if you think Disney would ever do that as a non private company. Don't you realize that the more fucked up the family dynamic is, the better chance of controlling the child, making money off the child and using the child towards god knows what, have? That's life. It happens every day. In relationship between adults. Between a parent and child. Friend and friend. At work etc etc
Obv Disney is extreme but is it? I see Disney as some large pedophile ring. Very similar to the catholic church.
~The band's Twitter account is suddenly deleted!
~Rumours of Joe's substance abuse problems first emerged in March, when it was reported that he had made a sex tape with girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler. In the alleged video Joe was believed to have been depicted using drugs!
~Joe has been spending time with sober living coach Mike Bayer!
I want to suck all of their dicks. But if I had to do it in order, I'd suck Joe first. I think he's gay. Kevin is a little fugly, but I bet he's the hung one. Nick makes me melt. I'd save him for last and drain him of all his leche.
Nick and Joe have very big dicks. Kevin - not so much. Joe used to tease him about that.
Let's use our heads. This is datalounge after all.
I smell BS. This publicity spin in the Pr approved non ground breaking Daily Mail based in a country that have not heard of the Jonas Brothers is sus as fuck.
Not only are they trying to shed the goody two shoes image but due to poor sales, they know that being bad sales-America loves a good kids gone bad story, see Rihanna etc
Now the interesting story is whether they will try and change the music direction to go with the bad boy image or they will stick to their usual style and lap up all the publicity maximizing it to the tilt.
Like I said, let's not be gullible. We all know that Hollywood prints stories to make stuff up-good or bad. And Joe is gay. Please with the girlfriend crap.
I despise Miley but I love the way her blatant shock BS factor has propelled her to number one in the charts and garnered her so much attention. It sells people!
Maybe "sober living coach" Mike Bayer is also a [italic]de-gayer[/italic]?
Danielle is afking her pregnancy! The marriage with Kevin Jonas is all for show. They don't even sleep in the same room (they said it was because of snoring), but I think it's because Kevin is gay. Why else would he have a problem impregnating his wife? Why did they have to fake the pregnancy? Because he doesn't sleep with her. He's gay.
R135, Danielle has not faked her pregnancy.
Kevin did not have trouble 'impregnating his wife'. Danielle waited until she was ready to have a child.
So someone thinks all of this is just a publicist trick?
I guess that's possible.
I wonder what Janet Jackson has to say about this. Didn't she date one of the Jonas brothers for a few months? I imagine she's devastated for them. This must remind her of when The Jackson 5 disbanded. I hope Janet reaches out to the boys (especially Nick; he's diabetic and very sensitive) and offers them counsel. She is a wise sage in the industry, often turned to for clarity on complex issues. Anyone who says differently is an outright racist. Damita Jo can heal these boys. She did it for Hanson.
I'll miss them.
I don't know much about the Jonas Brothers, but when bands aren't selling tickets or recording/have a record deal, they "break up."
R141, or there could be an Asian bitch behind it
this is wrong
R141 did you even read the thread? Joe's on drugs.
God, the basement-dwelling DL losers want every everyone to be as much a failure as they are.
R144, doesn't "being on drugs", i.e., abusing or being addicted to them, count as a failure whether or not their concerts are selling?
I'll bet Joe rides it when he and Mike fuck.
Oh, Joe. Womanly hips aren't a reason to seek refuge in heroin.
I knew Joe was on something. He has seemed "off" in the past year or two, like he is a zombie with no light behind his eyes.
1. Jonas Brothers weren't even touring or making money as a band anymore
2. Jonas Brothers cancel tour because Joe wants to hang out in West Hollywood with Zac and Robert Patsy
What are they going to do when the money stops rolling in? Do you think Nick will resort to selling his gorgeous ass to interested parties? $50 a lick, I'm thinking.
"Jonas Brothers weren't even touring or making money as a band anymore"
Didn't they have a recent tour of Asia that was successful?
r150, how much extra do you think it'll cost to have it fart on you?
Please stop, R152. You do it because you know it disgusts others, which must provide some pleasure to you, but can it really be all that much?
I wish them well. They seem like very nice young men.
Fuckin' AIDS infested 'mos....
The Brothers are NOT A BAND. It was a rift between the brothers and the back up band they use when they sing.
It's like calling the Jackson 5 a band. No they're singers. Oh sure the Jonases try to play a guitar here and there but besides the fact their fat asses get in the way of properly holding a gueeee-tar, they suck
If thats true, which I doubt as everything is PR led-see Rihanna's tedious world tour-then that doesn't matter unless you're David Hassleholf, where the revenues are an added bonus.
America is where it counts in there mind and to be fair, it's where the money really is. You can sell out a stadium is Brazil, South Africa or I'll be honest, even Europe but it means nothing because they know that there are the only band playing there and that they aren't really going there because they are popular. Also so many if those times, the tickets go for so cheap, as prizes or packages. Yeah, its the small print that naive people who don't understand business or the music business don't get.
"besides the fact their fat asses get in the way of properly holding a gueeee-tar"
How does an ass interfere with holding a guitar properly?
R155 sounds like a uppity twat.
I need Nick's big fat butt in my face so bad.
I mentioned in another thread that it's a shame Joe's going to rehab apparently. He'd be perfect for 50 Shades of Grey.
He was on the Disney show JONAS and can certainly act well enough for that shit.
Also, he wants an edgier image. Remember the apocryphal S&M sex tape with the beard?
Do they have threeways with each other?
What, if anything does that have to do with Janet?
Well, Joe's weight issues are similar to Janet's.
[quote]Remember the apocryphal S&M sex tape with the beard?
The sex tape is real.
[quote]Jonas Brothers cancel tour because Joe wants to hang out in West Hollywood with Zac and Robert Patsy
And what do Joe Jonas, Zac Efron and Robert Pattinson have in common? Hmm....
I'm with r131. Ticket sales flopped. Damage control (claiming the tour was cancelled for some interesting reason), also flopped.
I would blame the JB management. They should never have booked a tour they couldn't sell. After the previous tour flopped, they should have scaled way back. Selling out a smaller club is way better PR than empty seats in a bigger theater. This was management greed, pure & simple.
They should become TV talent show judges.
So they reunited and performed as a two piece, sans Kevin. Interesting.
Sooo...who's the one who hired Erik Rhodes? C'mon Michael Musto, spill the beans. I know you come here, and I KNOW you know.
164...no, it's not.
We need sextape of brothers gangbanging each other!
