The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium was visited by the Jonas Brothers. Nick, Kevin and Joseph took the Stadium Tour and played a small game on the pitch with legendary player and current Director of Institutional Relations Emilio Butragueño. Following a penalty shoot-out, with Nick acting as goalkeeper, the Jonas Brothers saw the first team’s dressing room.
The three New Jersey brothers were impressed by the incredible amount of trophies won by the Club and loved many of the antique kits and items on display in the museum. Each received a personalised Real Madrid shirt from Emilio Butragueño, whom they greatly admire.
During the penalty shoot-out, Emilio Butragueño warped to the past and scored an impressive strike through one of the top corners of the goal. Kevin tried too, but his shot was too high. Disney Channel host Andrea Guasch also had a try. “We used to play football when we were small,” said Joseph. “We love Real Madrid, but we don’t have time to watch their games,” added Nick.
Once in the dressing room, the brothers had their picture taken next to Cristiano Ronaldo’s locker as they “greatly admire him.” The Jonas Borthers’ visit was a prelude to the concert they will give tonight at the Palacio de los Deportes in the Spanish capital. They will play several songs of their latest album Lines, Vines and Trying Times. “Spanish fans give us a lot of energy,” said Joseph.
