  1. Pretty big venues….these are sports arenas. 10,000 or so seats. Great exposure and she’ll be really appreciated by all the fathers who are escorting their tween daughters to the concert!

  2. Wow, this will be great for her. She should gain a lot of new fans through this. I’m not crazy about the Jonas Brothers, though… I think Jordin is much more talented.

  3. Hey good for her :) at least the kids will hear some real singing before the JoBros get on stage, lol

  4. This will be great exposure for Jordin. Good for her.

    Now will Archuleta go on tour with Miley lol?

  5. Now will Archuleta go on tour with Miley lol?

    As much as I wouldn’t want to go to a Miley Cyrus concert, he would be lucky to get that gig, just as Jordin is lucky to get a gig with the JoBros. It’s arenas–and arenas are never bad. Plus, Jordin could use a bit of the obsessive types in her fan base (they’re not all bad). She’s had a lot of radio success, and she has her fans, but she never really had huge buzz. This could generate some buzz for her. It helped The Veronicas.

    Now I’m kind of anxious to know who the heck David A. is touring with. I’m not sure it’s going to be a huge act, but it’s gotta be an act big enough to go tons of places, because his band mentioned they would be hitting a lot of cities. I’m just not sure who they could pair him with that is touring this summer.

  6. This is really great for Jordin.

    I saw her opening for Keys and she was pretty good.

  7. Now will Archuleta go on tour with Miley lol?

    Well, he’s recording a song with her and he just filmed an episode of Hannah Montana =\

  8. This sounds like a great gig for Jordin– this arena tour is a great opportunity to win over tons of new fans in the (I think) right demographic. I mean, the Alicia Keys tour was a big one, too, but I don’t know if that was a great fit for Jordin. Alicia fans might not have been easily won over by a teen pop princess type, albeit one with a teeny bit of R&B… But then again, wasn’t it during the Alicia Keys tour that she injured her vocal chords and had to drop out? If so, that might’ve been the reason for missing out that opportunity more so than any demo-mismatch. The Jesse McCartney match seemed to fit in terms of audience, but that was a smaller tour, since he’s not nearly as big a draw as the JoBros. All in all, I think this will be great for her. I’m just a tad surprised, since I thought the label wasn’t promoting her current album anymore, and she was already in the studio working on her next one?

  9. Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m just a tad surprised, since I thought the label wasnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t promoting her current album anymore, and she was already in the studio working on her next one?

    Yeah, the timing is a bit odd, since she’s not promoting a new album, but when opportunity bites, it’s best to go with it I suppose. Maybe she’ll sing some songs from her upcoming record.

  10. As much as I wouldnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t want to go to a Miley Cyrus concert, he would be lucky to get that gig, just as Jordin is lucky to get a gig with the JoBros.

    I agree with you. It would be great exposure for him just as this is for Jordin. JoBros and Miley are probably the two biggest tween acts besides TSwift.

  11. I wonder what the JoBros are getting out of this deal, I mean, Jordin gets more exposure since the Jonases smoke her when it comes to album and merchandise sales, so what do they get? Maybe, this is just a little thank you for defending them about the purity ring thing.

  12. ^ Or they get credibility. A lot of people (me included) peg them as a flash-in-the-pan ‘Disney act’ with not much talent. Maybe they hope that, by going on tour with a ‘real’ singer, it will give them more credibility. Just a guess.

  13. Congrats to Jordin. The JoBros just recently performed in front of 70,000 people in Houston so the exposure she’ll get from touring with them will be good for her career, I think.

    Well, heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s recording a song with her and he just filmed an episode of Hannah Montana

    Yeah, and since opening for Miley is a possibility for Archie’s Summer Tour, having him on her show could just be another good way to introduce him to her fans.

    They could even perform that song they recorded together live if they ever toured together. lol

    Or he could be opening for someone else entirely. My curiosity about it is piqued.

  14. They get an opening act that’s gone platinum with her singles and her LP. When you are as popular as the Jonas Bros, you’re out of everyone else’s league– you certainly won’t get much from your opening act.

    OTOH, Jordin has a fan base that might not yet be into the J Bros.

  15. I want Arculeta to tour with some of his idols – John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Natasha B, etc. Please, God, not Miley. And thank goodness not the Jonas Brothers.

    Depends what you want for him. If you want a lot of eyes on him and a lot of exposure, somebody who sells out arenas is best. If you want to go the artistic cred route, somebody like Mraz or Mayer is best. I’m sure he would have more fun on a mid-size venue tour than an arena tour, but sometimes you need more exposure than that.

    All this is just speculation because he could be touring with the New Kids on the Block for all we know (gag me if he does because it would accomplish neither one of the purposes above).

    To tell you the truth, I’ve been afraid of this pairing. It could very well happen. Archie went to an NKOTB concert when he was in Utah on break a couple months ago. He commented in his blog about it. They are also both managed by Jared Paul at Azoff. Oh man. I was a huge NKOTB fan back in the day, but the critics were merciless with them. They still have no credibility, after all these years and a hugely successful comeback tour. I love the New Kids for nostalgia reasons but they do not have anywhere near the talent of Archie. Then again, Natasha Bedingfied toured with them last year and it didn’t seem to hurt her….on a personal note, I could definitely get a big group of friends together to see an Archie/NKOTB show, no problem. Archie/Miley? Not so much.

    To me his ideal pairing would be with Kelly Clarkson. (please, Kelly!!!!)

  18. To tell you the truth, Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ve been afraid of this pairing. It could very well happen.

    I’ve been afraid of the pairing as well. And they don’t play venues any larger than the ones he’s currently touring so I’m not sure how much good it would do him.

    Oops, back to Jordin. The more I think about it, the more I’m excited for her. I think the JoBros audience will love her. And it’s the perfect time to test out her new material.

  19. Actually NKOTB play in Arenas. On their last tour some major cities had two sold-out arena dates. So, the huge audiences would be one big benefit for Archie. Still, I don’t know..I’m bummed he didn’t get the spot w the JoBros!

    Ah, they must be doing a mix then, because the few shows I heard about with them have been in theaters.

  21. I’ve been wondering if Jordin would join the JoBros on tour because I remember seeing a video of them doing a duet on youtube before. Good for Jordin! She deserves the exposure. (:

    My sister is actually very excited. lol, she’s 13, a huge Jordin fan and she also likes the JoBros. [:

  22. To tell you the truth, Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ve been afraid of this pairing. It could very well happen. Archie went to an NKOTB concert when he was in Utah on break a couple months ago. He commented in his blog about it.

    That’s true but he also blogged about maybe a half dozen other concerts he attended in that time period to see artists such as Carrie Underwood, Jason Mraz, Adele (Archie is in love with Adele’s voice and album right now), Alanis Morisette and more. I think he was maybe observing how other known live performers handle it and he also just loves watching others perform.

  23. I think the only reason he went to the NKOTB concert was to see Natasha. Gag me if he tours with them. :x

  24. It would be funny (not really) if Jordin and one of the Jonas Brothers are no longer wearing their purity rings at the end of the tour. LOL.

    It couldn’t be Joe since he likes his girls skinny, while Nick likes his girls loud and obnoxious. Kevin pings my gaydar so he’s out too. :happy_tb:
