Jonas Bros. coming to Tampa, fans crash Ticketmaster site



Tbd-jonasbros032409 While the Jonas Brothers may not be the biggest draw at the movie theater, we're pretty sure the 'tweens will lineup to scream and coo as Nick, Joe and Kevin come to the St. Pete Times Forum on Tuesday, Aug. 18. In fact, so many people are spazzing out over the three-continent tour that a pre-sale for tickets crashed Ticketmaster's site for the event on Monday.

Rolling Stone says that so many members of the group's fan club tried to log in for the announced presale -- tickets go on sale for regular folks on Saturday -- that the site went down about a half-hour before the 10 a.m. on sale time.

“The official Team Jonas fan club website experienced intermittent problems this morning, causing delays among members attempting to connect to purchase tickets. For those of you still needing access codes, we are in the process of contacting fan club members individually with a solution so that you can purchase tickets as soon as possible," a posting on the site read. "Rest assured that only Team Jonas fan club members will continue to have exclusive access to purchase tickets for the next 36 hours (through 10 AM EST, Wednesday March 25).”

If you want to get tix the old-fashioned way (or don't want to admit you're part of the Jonas fan club), check out the regular sale this weekend. Seats are priced from $29.50 to $89.50, which is a small price to pay for your maladjusted young daughter to misdirect her emotional attachments at the overblown pop cultural event of the summer!
