Off we go!

After months (and months and months) of dormancy on our part, we are off to see the Jonai today! WOOOT!  It has been too long (last October! I saw Nick in January).

I can’t wait!

We’ve got a full day planned with the Road Dogs game followed by the show tonight in Camden (and maybe some shopping in Philly in between). We will be hanging out with Merry and E (who we’ve not seen for too long). It’s going to be perfect day for it! It is going to be AWESOME.

I will be making updates to the post throughout the e day – I am sure MM will keep the tweets flying as well.

Updates after the jump!

They’re baaa-aaaack.

Jonas Brothers World Tour 2010 launched August 7th in Tinley Park, Illinois. Here’s your open post to discuss the tours’ shows as they come – with videos, photos and other news (whether you were there in person or just following along on Twitter & YouTube).

After the jump, take a peek at the reported set list [SPOILER ALERT!!!]…what do you think?!

Not a good day for the JB superfandom, as the (erstwhile “Camp Rock”) Jonas Brothers World Tour 2010 appears to have undergone some hasty restructuring, even as tourmates rehearsed away and Kevin & Danielle were prepping their packing plans.

The Sibling Revelry community appears to be particularly impacted by the reshuffling.  We may not be the ones panting that a tweet from one of the Bros will make our lives, or sneaking into meet & greets, or other demanding, frenzied activities of the fickle tween demo that is the commonly imagined JB fan –  but we ARE the superfans with itchy trigger fingers at the first second of the earliest presales – we travel, buy tickets for multiple shows – and a number of us live outside of the favored Northeastern and West Coast markets.

Clearly a day of huge disappointment for many, and I know our hearts go out to each other.  There’s always been much talk of the powers-that-be of JB management (“the PTB”, thanks for that one, Shelley!) and we can add this to the list of days when we wonder if the PTB have a clue (or care) about WDT (“we discerning types”, thanks for that one, SR charter readership! ;)).

To be fair…I’ve been reading a lot of Bob Lefsetz since Garbo & Papa J let that cat out of the bag and if I’ve learned anything from it – if the reason behind all this is indeed weak sales – the JBs are in no way alone in the struggle to repeat their previous bang-up summer sales (though the Camp Rock angle surely did NOT help).  They have some pretty healthy company in price drops and show cancellations.  We understand their struggle to run a viable tour and business, but it seems like there has to be a better way to deal with whatever is going on than cutting off your very biggest, heartland fans at the knees. So as some of us suspect, is there more at play than the bottom line?  Is there really a good reason for a revised schedule that leaves so many fans in the lurch?

Please feel free to continue to voice your most honest concerns and frustrations and thoughts here, over the jump, where – if this is all news to you – I’ve posted the text of the Brothers’ (via Team Jonas) letter of announcement/apology and the (irksome to some of us) PRNewswire release that went out in support of the tour revamp/cancellation/expansion.

Joe has graced us with a beautiful letter giving us all the details of his trip to Africa! It’s powerful, sweet, funny, and makes this super-fan glow with admiration. Just when I thought I couldn’t be more proud, I am.

He writes about life, happiness, adventure, and love. He encourages us all to take a look at our privileged lives, and remember that there are those in the world who have nothing. He also asks us to consider that possessions do not make our lives better, but allow us easily take our lives for granted.

I am doing it no justice, the letter really speaks for itself.

Read it after the jump!

What did we want?

TOUR DATES

When did we get ’em?

TODAY!

Getting highly anticipated tour dates is awesome, but I am not going to pretend that today’s announcement wasn’t dreaded by some in the Jonasphere. We dreaded it because of the rumors that have been swirling around for a few weeks. A Camp Rock Tour? With the cast of Camp Rock 2?  Sounds a little scary, right? To me it was.

I was scared because my nightmare vision involved more or less a production of Grease 2. Then I thought to myself, “Self, have the Jonas Brothers ever let you down when it got to brass tacks?” I could only answer “No.” (brass tacks being performing live). Am I a huge Camp Rock fan? Not really, but “Gotta Find You” is one of my MOST favorite JB songs performed live (Joe KILLS it every time), and I always enjoy “Play My Music” and “This is Me.” I am a fan of Demi, so there is no issue for me there. So I’m keeping an open mind and am looking forward to fighting for tickets on May 15.

Plus, I promised John Taylor I would go.

Joe, Kevin, Nick, and Demi were on Radio Disney this morning talking all about the tour and Kevin reassured us that they are touring as the Jonas Brothers (not Take 3). JB and Demi will be performing their own sets as well as together and with other CR2 artists.

I have not heard any of the CR2 songs yet (well this one), but I really enjoyed all of the Jonas related CR songs ( and “Our Time is Here” is one of my fave summer jams). Plus it sounds like there will be lots to do:

“From the minute you walk into the promenade – because we’re going to be playing amphitheaters during the summertime – it’s going to feel like a whole other world….It’s going to feel like you’re going to camp. There’s going to be things to do from the minute you walk in to the end of the night.”
–  Kevin Jonas from Kevin Jonas: Our Summer Tour Will Blow You Away By Bethany Powers, People Magazine, People Online, April 27, 2010

Hmm, sounds a little like Brad Paisley’s upcoming water themed tour.

I’m excited! I mean, it’s not a real summer without a Jonas show!

Check out a video of the Guys talking about the tour (and Cambio, and public service, and some other stuff – it’s a good video),  along with a clip of Kevin talking about the tour (and a cool “Field Trips for All” program Kevin is promoting) from our very own Fox 29 in Philadelphia!

Episode 1 of Living The Dream 2: World Tour!

This episode, titled “Kick Off”  is appropriately that reminding us where we’ve been and filling in the gap between the last LTD and this this new series. Kevin narrates.

A LOT has happened since the Look Me In The Eyes Tour – engagement & marriage, hobbies, movies, TV… it catches us up, and then gives us a quick overview of what the World Tour is about, how they feel about where they are in their careers, and where we will be going with them in this series.

Renew your passport and come along after the jump!

The Guys came together and joined more than a hundred fellow celebrities for the Hope For Haiti Now telethon which aired last night. They were there to raise money to help the victims of the huge earthquake which caused Haiti unfathomable destruction, loss of life, and continued suffering.

Kevin, Joe and Nick manned the phone banks, but there were also performances, heart wrenching video essays, and phones answered by some of our most beloved people.

Kevin talks about taking calls and how it is important to help others – always:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Haiti“, posted with vod

You can read more about their experience here.

A benefit album of the evenings performances featuring some amazing artists like Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Wyclef Jean, and many others is available for pre-order from iTunes now with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the people of Haiti.

It is a great cause, and if you missed your opportunity last night you can still give here.

If nothing else, please keep the people of Haiti in your hearts and prayers.

Follow me over the jump for one of the many moving performance of the evening.
