That One Time The Jonas Brothers ‘Shook Up’ Tweens In El Paso
I'm taking us back to that one time when The Jonas Brothers shook up and rocked the world of teens and tweens in El Paso.
Last week I was cleaning out my filing cabinet at work and came across an old flyer announcing The Jonas Brothers performing in El Paso, and it took me back, so I just had to share.
It was January of 2008, and The Jonas Brothers announced the 'When You Look Me in the Eyes Tour,' which included a stop in the Sun City, and as you might imagine, fans in El Paso were ready for it, selling out tickets in less than a day.
A year before announcing their world tour, The Jonas Brothers had just appeared on Disney’s Hannah Montana featuring Miley Cyrus leading to them all to co-present at the Teen Choice Awards.
The Jonas Brothers would also go on to perform at the White House, American Music Awards, Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve, the 81st annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and made their acting debut in Disney's Camp Rock.
Needless to say, Jonas Brothers fever was everywhere, especially here in El Paso, where teens and tweens came out in droves for the concert that took place on a Monday, February 11, 2008, at the Abraham Chavez Theatre.
In anticipation of the concert, we at KISS-FM gave out tickets and set up a promotion with Mike, Tricia, and Cesar where one lucky listener could score an autographed guitar by the Jo Bros.
Finally, the day of the show arrived, crazed fans swarmed the Convention Center Plaza, waiting to catch a glimpse of the teen heartthrobs.
Once the spotlights hit the stage, and the first note sounded off, thousands of screaming fans jumped up off their seats as The Jonas Brothers rocked the stage.
Since then, the brothers have continued their musical successes as a group and as solo artists, and at times actors. The brothers Joe, Nick, and Kevin have also grown up, married, become fathers, and, to this day, continue recording music and touring all over the world.
It's funny how something so insignificant as a flyer can catapult you back in time to relive a great memory, but I also can't help but wonder if the winning fan of that guitar is still holding on to it. And hey, if the winner from long ago is reading this, please reach out; we'd love to know whatever happened to that signed guitar?
