The Jonas Brothers have canceled their upcoming tour over creative differences. Brothers Joe, Kevin and Nick were scheduled to begin their 19-date tour Friday in Upper Darby, Pa. Spokesman Jesse Derris confirmed the cancellation and said fans can get a refund at the point of purchase. The group tweeted about the tour as recently as Tuesday, posting a picture of a poster for the Pennsylvania stop.
The New Jersey trio shot to fame in 2007 with the release of their self-titled debut. They were one of pop music’s biggest successes with TV shows and a Grammy nomination. They had been scheduled to release their first album since 2009 soon, but the future of that project is unclear. People magazine first reported the cancellation. “There is a deep rift within the band,” Derris told Us Magazine.
Joe Jonas was at the X in St. Paul on Tuesday for “We Day” to encourage young people to help others.
