Jonas Brothers Cancel Concert Due to Violence

The Jonas Brothers were forced to cancel a concert in Monterrey, Mexico due to security concerns. Monterrey is Mexico’s wealthiest city, but there have been numerous murders and kidnappings in recent months, with over 400 deaths this year in the state of Nuevo Leon alone.

The Jonas Brothers’ rep said in a statement to CNN,

"While they wish to apologize to everyone who planned to attend the concert, this difficult decision was made out of their great affection and concern for their loyal fans in the region.”

Concert promoter Live Nation said the concert was cancelled due to “a series of unfortunate events” and out of concern for fans. The US Department of State also issued a travel warning for the country, noting a shooting on August 20, 2010, in front of the American Foundation School in Monterrey and "the high incidence of kidnappings in the Monterrey area".

So scary! This was definitely a good call though—seeing as though most Jo-Bro fans are young girls!
