Jonas Brothers take show on the road

Jordin Sparks, Honor Society tour openers

Nearly two weeks after the premiere of Disney's "Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert" film, the siblings have unveiled dates to their upcoming world tour. The 44-date North American leg begins June 20 at the Dallas Cowboys New Stadium in Texas and wraps Aug. 31 at the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.

Prior to North American arena dates, the Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009, produced by Live Nation and presented by Burger King, will play a handful of dates in South America in mid-May before heading to the United Kingdom and Europe in early June.

The Jonas Brothers trek will feature support from former "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks and rock act Honor Society.

Tickets in North America go on sale to Jonas Brothers fan club members in select cities beginning March 16, while the general public on sales start March 20 through Live Nation.

The Jonas Brothers World Tour supports the trio's most recent studio album, "A Little Bit Longer," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last August. The Hollywood Records set has sold 1.49 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Nick, Kevin and Joe's most recent tour in the summer of 2008 grossed $30.2 million from 43 shows that drew more than 697,000 concertgoers, according to Billboard Boxscore.
