Hot on the heels of sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall and the Pantages Theatre, and as they come off a hugely successful Latin American run, the Jonas Brothers will embark on their first North American tour in three years this summer as they hit cities across the U.S. and Canada with what will prove to be an epic concert experience for their fans. The “Jonas Brothers Live Tour” will take the band to more than 25 stops across North America, including Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Toronto. The tour announcement comes on the same day the group debuts its hot new single, “Pom Poms,” a new anthem that redefines their sound with an upbeat mix of pop and rock.
Produced by Live Nation, the “Jonas Brothers Live Tour” will kick off in Chicago, Illinois, on Wednesday, July 10, at Charter One Pavilion at Northerly Island, and continue through Friday, August 16, in Los Angeles, California at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk.

The multimedia artworks of Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller emphasize aural and visual experiences that transport the viewer to other realms of consciousness. Their work is highly scripted, meticulously detailed and often cinematic in scope, breaking down distinctions between fiction and everyday reality. Through various levels of engagement, the viewer becomes a participant, either witnessing a phenomenon or becoming immersed in a scenario and vitally activating it.
Janet Cardiff began collaborating with fellow Canadian artist and partner George Bures Miller in 1995. When Cardiff and Miller represented Canada at the 49th Venice Biennale with Paradise Institute (2001), they won both La Biennale di Venezia Special Award and the Benesse Prize, which recognizes artists who “break new artistic ground with an experimental and pioneering spirit.” They are now among the foremost artists of their generation, and their work has been shown around the world.
