If you are a big fan of the Jonas Brothers, you may never again get to see the group in concert, live or on television. While you can buy the music the group has already produced, you may not ever again get to buy anything new the group releases. The group has decided to stop performing together--at least for the time being.
Kevin Jonas, 25, told People magazine the group is finished, "for now." Nick Jonas would not say the group is finished "forever," but he did say the Jonas Brothers are "closing a chapter." Joe said the decision was "unanimous." The group had already cancelled a 19-day tour on October 9 because a "rift" involving creativity. Nick said felt "trapped" and needed to share what was on his heart with his brothers. Kevin Jonas has said at the end of August that Danielle, his wife, and he were expecting a baby girl. At that time the band's said the birth of the baby had nothing to do with any troubles in the band.
The group originally started with a solo effort by Nick. The group then started as a trio, sons of Jonas, before taking the name Jonas brothers. Within a year the group gained a reputation, even though their first album, "It's About Time," only made it to number 91 on the charts in 2006. Their second album, however, went to number five on Billboard. In the first week it sold 69,000 copies, more than the soundtrack for "Hairspray." Many other hits and a movie followed. The group was nominated for a Grammy in 2008, for best new artist.
Is it over for good for the group? Time will tell. It is interesting to note that Kevin Jonas only said it is over "for now.' Kevin Jonas only said it is hard to say "forever" when talking about the group's calling it quits. He did only say the group is "closing a chapter."
