“There was a big a disagreement over their music direction.”
— Jesse Derris, a rep for the Jonas Brothers, announcing to People that the former teen idols have called off a 19-date concert tour, two days before it was supposed to start. (They were due to play the Fillmore in Silver Spring on Oct. 21 — sure, a step down from the Nissan Pavilion in their 2008 heyday, but that’s the natural trajectory.) Apparently “there is a deep rift within the band,” their rep told the magazine, following an argument this past weekend. After a multi-platinum hot streak circa 2007-08, at the height of their Disney Channel fame, the JoBros went on hiatus following the disappointing sales of their fourth album in 2009. Good luck, guys — your early 20s are definitely the hardest.
