In case you hadn’t noticed, American tweens have a thing for the Jonas Brothers. Need proof of their devotion? This past weekend fans snatched up over 800,000 North American tickets.
Arena shows are now sold out in major cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Houston, Pittsburgh, Edmonton, New Orleans and Atlanta. Fans that didn’t snag tickets in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Vancouver lucked out because second dates in those cities were immediately added.
The dates are a part of "The Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009" which features Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas performing on stages across three continents. The tour is being presented by Burger King and produced by Live Nation.
"Ticket sales for this tour have been phenomenal," Jason Garner, Chief Executive Officer of Global Music for Live Nation, said in a statement. "The band has already sold out arena dates in 13 major cities, including Madrid, London and Paris, and with additional dates going on sale in Mexico and South America and Europe in April, it's clear to us that Jonas Brothers are a true global touring powerhouse."
