The Jonas Brothers are going to have some angry fans south of the border. They have just canceled their concerts scheduled for Sunday in Mexico in light of the recent swine flu outbreak.
A statement on Arena Monterrey's website read: "We know the situation is stabilizing and that many fans travel long distances to live the experience of seeing a Jonas Brothers concert. That is why we hope that your experience and your enjoyment of the concert will be as pleasant as possible."
The concerts have now been postponed until July 31st. The tro have put out a statement to their fans via their blog, saying:
“The Jonas Brothers want to thank all their fans in Mexico for their support and dedication. However, due to health concerns around the country resulting from the outbreak of the H1N1 flu, their 2 concerts in Monterrey, Mexico on May 17th have been postponed to July 31, 2009. All tickets purchased for May 17th will be honored on this new date. There will still be both afternoon and evening shows on this new date. Any fans unable to attend the rescheduled shows may receive refunds at the Arena Box Office beginning next Wednesday, May 13.
Although the situation is stabilizing, Jonas Brothers and Live Nation do not want to cause parents and families any concern over their children attending the concerts. Many fans are traveling great distances to see and experience a Jonas Brothers concert for the first time and we want them to have the best-and safest-time possible. Jonas Brothers have been overwhelmed by the reception of their many fans in Mexico. They very much look forward to performing their first-ever shows in Monterrey on July 31, 2009.”
Hey, at least they’re still planning on going!
