According to People Magazine, The Jonas Brothers are canceling their tour just two days before the official kick off right here in the Philadelphia area at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby on Friday, October 11.

Jesse Derris, a spokesman for the band, exclusively told People, “There is a deep rift within the band. There was a big disagreement over their music direction.”

The boys released new music earlier this year that was meant to be a part of their forthcoming project, V. Oldest brother Kevin, 25, is currently expecting his first child with wife Danielle, which has been dismissed as a reason for cancelling the 19-city tour.
