The Jonas Brothers Cancel Mexico Concert Amid Security Concerns

The Jonas Brothers have cancelled an upcoming concert in Mexico following a wake of violent attacks on civilians in that country.

The “Lovebug” hitmakers were due to perform in Monterrey on 21 October, but promoters with Live Nation have axed the gig due to “a series of unfortunate events” prompting concerns for the singing sibilings’ welfare. Monterrey is Mexico’s richest city and historically one of its safest, but a wave of drug-related violence has shocked residents there in recent months. More than 400 people have died in drug-related killings in the area in the last year.

On Wednesday, JoBro fan Dharyus Ledezma begged the trio on their Facebook page to announce a new concert date soon. The Monterrey resident said she had been looking forward to seeing the band since the show was announced five months ago.

Kevin, Joe, and Nick are still expected to perform in the Mexican cities of Guadalajara and Mexico City on Oct. 23 and 24.
