Jonas Bros Start World Tour At Yankee Stadium Today

Several years into their pop star fame, the Jonas Brothers were first asked to play Yankee Stadium in 2008.

About the opportunity, Nick Jonas said “At that point it was like this meteoric rise for us over a two-year period.” “I don’t think we believed we could sell it. So we told our management team, ‘We’re too nervous. We should play somewhere else.’”

Now, 15 years later, the brothers-Jonas will launch their worldwide tour with two sold-out shows at the home of the Bronx Bombers come August 12 and 13. “It’s going to be a pretty magical way to start the tour,” said Joe Jonas. “We’ve been in rehearsals for about a month now.”

Having recently put on a dress rehearsal for some 200 fans, Joe added “They were very engaged the whole time.” “I feel like it’s really easy to digest even if you’re not a super fan… But really for us it’s like walking through memory lane with our fans. It’s really great to see a lot of our fans grow up with us. A lot of them our age, if not older. Looking out at the dress rehearsal, I was like, ‘That fan was at a school tour we did in ’07 or ’08.’”

Teasing surprise guests prior to the intermissions at the New York baseball stadium, Nick stated “They’re very famous.” “The surprise is going to be combination of different things that don’t necessarily include us. In other words, I will be excited to be watching this moment from backstage and seeing how the audience reacts.”

Initially, the sibling trio wanted to put on a Subway Series of concerts with gigs at Yankee Stadium and the Mets’ Citi Field. but “Unfortunately, the Mets stadium was booked,” said Joe.
