During a season that finds the Biebs, the cast of “Glee” and Gaga all on the road, concertgoers have plenty of choices when it comes to catching live music this summer. And for [artist id=”2088128″]Jonas Brothers[/artist] fans, the selection is only going to get sweeter when the band kicks off its tour on August 7 in Tinley Park, Illinois . We recently caught up with one-third of the JoBros, Joe Jonas, on the set of TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland,” where he’ll guest as Valerie Bertinelli’s son on the August 11 episode of the sitcom. MTV News pressed him about what surprises or special guests to expect when they come to town.
“We’re looking really forward to it,” Joe said of their 35-plus concert dates, spanning North and South America. “I’m excited to get onstage again and perform, get ramped up with that again.”
The always-media-savvy middle Jonas didn’t want to reveal specifics, but teased some good details.
“We’re going to be bringing a lot of our friends from ’Camp Rock’ on tour, which will be fun,” he said of featuring pals from the JoBros’ Disney channel flicks. “And also, there might be a couple [surprise guests] here and there; artists that might pop in, but we haven’t really said anything too much yet,” Jonas added.
According to the band’s official website, current tour guests include Jonas’ ex-girlfriend, Demi Lovato , along with a bevy of Disney favorites: Alyson Stoner, Matthew “Mdot” Finley, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Roshon Fegan and Jordan Francis.
“I think they’ll just [be a] surprise and come onstage,” he explained of the yet-unnamed performers. “We have a lot of buddies in the music industry that just kind of are always around hanging out onstage. We’ll call them up, and they’ll maybe play a song with us or something like that.”
In addition to performing songs from their albums, like 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times, fans can probably expect the guys to sing songs from the upcoming Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, album, which might in turn mean a possible (awkward?) duet by exes Joe and Demi of their “Wouldn’t Change a Thing.” (The track leaked online last week.)
