They devastated millions of fans by cancelling their fall tour, and the Jonas Brothers came to their decision purely on the basis of conflicting musical ambitions.
Still, immediately following the announcement there was widespread speculation that lackluster ticket sales actually led to the tours demise.
Now an inside source has come forward to set the record straight- Ticket sales were fine, and this certainly wasn”t about tickets. This was a small venue tour.”
“[They] had just come off a very successful summer run in bigger venues that sold very well, and the guys wanted to keep the team together through the fall until another larger run next summermostly to support the new music.”
Another source confirmed, “100 percent, this is about the music. They”re brothers and that will never change. This isn”t about personal issues. The guys recorded a lot of music and there was broad disagreement within the group about what direction to take the music.”
