Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas announce that they have canceled their 19-date tour just two days before the first show in Pennsylvania on Friday, October 11.
Jonas Brothers has canceled their upcoming tour. Jesse Derris, a representative for the group, has confirmed that the 19 scheduled shows have all been scrapped due to musical disharmony within the group.
"There is a deep rift within the band," Derris explained. "There was a big a disagreement over their music direction." The cancellation was announced just two days before the first show kicks off in Pennsylvania on Friday, October 11.
Jonas Brothers released their first album, "It's About Time", in 2006. They found success after dropping their platinum-selling album, "A Little Bit Longer", which hit No. 1 on Billboard 200 back in 2008.
The group is currently working on "V", their fifth studio album that is scheduled to arrive later this year. The upcoming record has spawned singles "Pom Poms" and "First Time".
In the past years, members Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas have also been busy with their personal projects. Dad-to-be Kevin is starring on his and wife Danielle Deleasa's reality TV show, "Married to Jonas". Nick released a solo self-titled album, "Nicholas Jonas", in 2009. Joe later followed with his solo project, "Fastlife", in 2011.
However, a source told E! News that the tour cancellation was purely about the group's musical differences. "They are brothers and that will never change," the source said. "This isn't about personal issues. The guys recorded a lot of music and there was broad disagreement within the group about what direction to take with the music."
