Jonas Brothers to perform in ManilaBy Pocholo Concepcion
MANILA, Philippines—The American boy band Jonas Brothers will perform on October 19 at SM MOA Arena.
Composed of real-life brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas, the group was launched in 2005 and a debut album, “It’s About Time,” was released the following year.
Three more albums came out in succession: “Jonas Brothers” (2007); “A Little Bit Longer” (2008) and “Lines, Vines and Trying Times” (2009).
Overall the group has sold more than eight million albums worldwide.
The brothers have also branched out into acting, appearing in the Disney Channel TV series “Hannah Montana,” the Disney TV movie “Camp Rock” and “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” and the 20th Century Fox film “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.”
The concert will mark the group’s first time to play together in Manila, and will follow a reunion gig on October 11 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, after an absence from the music scene last year.
