The Jonas Brothers have cancelled their US tour, citing creative differences. The announcement came only two days before the tour was set to begin. Joe Jonas, 24, Kevin Jonas, 25, and Nick Jonas, 21, reportedly had a heated argument that led to the decision.
The future of the band is also in question, as the young men have experienced a “creative rift.” It seems the differences centered around where the band’s “sound was headed.”
The three brothers developed their love of music as children. The family often spent their free time singing and performing together in their home.
As the brothers developed their musical talent, they also appeared in several commercials including Burger King, Clorox, and Lego.
As reported by People.com, Nick Jonas made it to Broadway at an early age. Appearing in Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables, he showcased his talent as a singer and performer. Nick went on to compose and release his first solo album in 2004.
Following his early success, Nick asked brothers Kevin and Joe to join him. All three boys displayed remarkable talent. Together, the Jonas Brothers created the unique sound that would lead them to stardom.
The boys approached Columbia Records executive Steve Greenberg with their first single “Please Be Mine.” He immediately offered them a contract with the label. The boys began forming in small clubs. However, they were soon opening for major artists, including Cheetah Girls and Kelly Clarkson.
Although the were eventually dropped by Columbia, the brothers later signed a contract with Hollywood Records. The Disney owned label launched their successful career through Disney Channel programs and Radio Disney.
The Jonas Brothers have enjoyed a successful career together. However, their creative differences are now threatening to send each of them in a different direction.
