What did we want?
When did we get ’em?
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.”

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!
TOUR DATES (tentative) after the jump!
