"Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience" debuts two weeks from today, but fans are already scooping up advance tickets for the movie at fandango.com. The highly anticipated film opened in 3D and on IMAX 3D screens at midnight, on Thursday night, February 26, 2009.
"Jonas 3D has the potential to be the one of the season's hottest ticket-sellers," says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer of Fandango. "According to a recent Fandango survey, the vast majority of 'Jonas' respondents say that the 3D presentation is a 'very important' factor motivating them to buy tickets to the film. It's clear that passionate Jonas Brothers fans have been looking forward to seeing their favorite band in a way they've never been able to see them before."
The Jonas Brothers head to the big screen--in Disney Digital 3-D(TM)--in a high-energy Walt Disney Pictures rockumentary feature film event from director Bruce Hendricks ("Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert"). The film blends excerpts from the Brothers' red-hot "Burning Up" concert tour, including guest performances from Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, off-the-wall segments, a never-before-heard song ("Love Is On Its Way"), swarming fans and a lot of JB-style humor--giving fans never-before-seen insights into the lives of Kevin, Joe and Nick.
One of the Web's top movie and entertainment destinations, Fandango sells tickets to more than 16,000 screens. Fandango entertains and informs consumers with reviews, commentary and trailers, and offers the ability to quickly select a film, plan where and when to see it, and conveniently buy tickets in advance.

Their first performances came years ago, in the family basement, when the three usually led by Nickwould mount their own impromptu concerts. Encouraged by their alwayssupportive parents, they started getting commercial gigs, with Nick landing roles in Broadway musicals like “Les Miserables,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “A Christmas Carol The Musical,” and “Annie Get Your Gun.” Joe auditioned, too, and landed a part in “La Boheme.”
In 2005, the trio finally signed their first record-label deal, but it took a second time around, signing with Hollywood Records in 2006, for all the pieces of the puzzle to fit.
With the August 2007 release of their Hollywood debut, nothing more stood in their way.
Their premiere single, “S.O.S.,” quickly hit No. 1 on iTunes. In most cities on their “Look Me in the Eyes” headline tour, concerts sold out in minutes. They shot their own reality TV series, “Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream.” The brothers recently starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock,” which was the No. 1 entertainment telecast on cable television in 2008.
The Jonas Brothers debuted their “Burnin’ Up” video following the debut of “Camp Rock” on Disney Channel (with a repeat the following night on ABC) to over 12.5 million television viewers and over a million views on YouTube. The “Burnin’ Up” video immediately shot to No. 1 on iTunes. Coming up, Jonas Brothers have their own Disney Channel comedy series this spring, titled “JONAS.”
