It’s Showtime For The Jonas Brothers
They’ve been away pursing solo careers that include stints on Broadway (Nick), a reality TV series (Kevin) and an album launch (Joe). Now they’re reuniting and the Jonas Brothers promise that they’ve still got what it takes to rock and roll.
The band of brothers
This 24 October the Jonas Brothers will be bringing their brand of pop, plus promises of some new material to Malaysia. As they kick off their World Tour, which begins in Australia, Kevin, Nick and Joe expressed in a recent Skype interview that they are really excited about making a comeback.
It has been three years since their last big get together and the Jonas Brothers are in top form, and assure fans that there will be no ‘puking’ on stage (ala Justin Bieber), though Nick did joke that they were “tempted to add that bit into the show.” Here’s a little bit more insight on the Jonas Brothers and what’s in store.
What prompted this decision to reunite?
We felt that it was about time and the right time in our lives. We’ve been doing separate things in our careers but coming together is really exciting and we want to focus on the brothers again.
Coming back together has there been a shift in dynamics within the group?
I think if anything there has been more of an evolution. We’re coming into this reunion with an open mind. But it’s been great to rediscover how to work together to create music and perform again.
There is a lot of talk about your new album, what can you tell us about it?
It’s been a great journey. We’ve been working on loads of material and we’re still putting things together but for our show in Malaysia we’ll be playing three of the songs from the new upcoming album, which includes the single Meet You In Paris.
What’s the album going to be like?
The best way to describe the upcoming album is that it is all us – from what we wanted to put out there, the music to the production. We are in control of our destiny now and the album is representative of who we are as artiste at this point.
This will be your first trip to Asia together, isn’t it?
We’ve been individually to different parts of Asia but as a group this trip be a first for us. We’re really looking forward to seeing our fans and spending some time with them. To go to a new territory that we haven’t been is an incredible feeling.
What can we expect from your World Tour?
The concept of the tour is to show off our new dynamics and to focus on the music. We’re going to play a ton of the old songs and some new ones. We want to give fans as many of our hits as possible. We’ve had a lot of requests on Twitter and Facebook for songs so we’ve taken what was said and incorporated all that, and beyond, into the show.
