After news broke out that the Jonas Brothers have cancelled their tour just two days before it was scheduled to kick off, many have since then been wondering if this could be the beginning of the end for the New Jersey trio as a group.

The announcement regarding the cancellation was confirmed by the group’s spokesperson Jesse Derris, stating that the reason behind the sudden rescission was due to “a deep rift within the band” and that “there was a big disagreement over their music direction.” He then went on to assure that “fans can get a refund at their point of sale.”
JoBros fans over at Twitter were in an uproar upon hearing the news, however a source told Hollywood Life that fans shouldn’t worry as the recent development doesn’t [necessarily] mean that the band is splitting up.
“It really isn’t as bad as the thing sounds. Now that they can make more decisions about their career, they are taking it super seriously because they want to be around 30 years from now,” the source explained. “So cancelling a tour to get their s—t together will pay off handsomely in their future. They are not going to break up.”
The 19-date tour was supposed to begin Friday (October 11) in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, and would have ended on November 6 in Seattle. The brothers in fact even posted a tweet on Tuesday to remind their fans at the Keystone state about the big date just a day before the disappointing news.
