The much anticipated 3D concert ride of the Jonas Brothers Burnin’ Up Tour premiered this weekend.
The movie stars, of course, the Jonas Brothers (Nick, Joe, and Kevin) along with special guests Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. The concert portions were filmed at their New York City concert at Madison Square Garden. In between concert footage, and at the beginning of the movie, the audience was treated to glimpses of life on tour with the Jo Bros and how they have been handling their success.
One thing is for sure, these brothers know how to have fun and enjoy themselves in a clean way. They seem to still be genuinely surprised by the amount of fans who line up to see them and how popular they really are.
The Burnin’ Up Tour kicked off soon after their Look Me In the Eyes Tour. This has surely kept the boys and their family busy. Managed by their father, Kevin, Sr., many times the entire family is able to be involved (even Bonus Jonas Frankie) in the fun and travel.
Of course, if you’re a Jonas Brothers fan, then you also know of their bodyguard Big Rob. Big Rob appears many times throughout the movie including his performance in the song, “Burnin’ Up.” Big Rob is definitely a member of the family and you can tell the Jonas Brothers feel like they have a really big brother.
In between concert songs we were also treated to vignettes of CD release parties, buying their CD at the Virgin store, their appearance on “Good Morning America,” and sound checks. There was even a quasi video where they sang in Central Park about love. I’m sure they had fun with this one. Joe got to dress up as a New York City cop; Kevin played a hot dog vendor; and Nick drove a horse drawn carriage.
When you go to see the movie, make sure you recycle your 3D glasses as Disney and Pixar are planning a slew of 3D releases throughout the next year. Also, but sure to look carefully for Frankie because we missed him. One more thing, make sure you stay after the credits roll; I can’t tell you why, but you know there is always something after the credits.
Overall, the movie was fun, even if you’ve seen the live concert, and it is most definitely family friendly. Even my brother went to the movie. Take the whole family, but remember that it is a limited engagement and tickets are about $15 per person. Tickets can be purchased in advance on Fandango.com to avoid a sold out show.
In the meantime, stay tuned for more Jonas Brothers with Camp Rock 2, “J.O.N.A.S.,” and Walter the Farting Dog.
