It could be worse. The young girls could have been at a Metallica concert filled with gloom and doom.

Just becasuae this critic did not enjoy the concert does not mean that it was a bad concert. Those kids loved every minute of it. And, at least it was a clean show. I did not hear a seingle fowl 4 letter word, there as not one person smoking dope, the performers were on time, and finished on time. The fans got just what they wanted.

And you wonder why our kids are so screwed up. Just when kids act like kids are suppose to act someone like this critic go and BLAST them for it. What did you think you were going to get at a kids concert. Or better still, what did you want to get from a kids concert. The kids loved it and that is all that matters. Next time go to an adult concert and then report on it. Shame on you!!!

No question that the Jonas Brothers are a wholesome act. Its about time someone is especially with all the Hollywood douchebags getting so much press for their ridiculous behavior. I was just commenting on JB's lack of singing talent. Sure the kids loved the show, but the music wasn't that great and the screaming by the little teenyboppers was totally unnecessary. What does it accomplish beside assaulting their neighbor's ears?

Thanks for writing a TERRIBLE article about a band you obviously know nothing about.

Their success if because of their music, not anything else.
They're unique.. how many bands of brothers are there right now that write such meaningful music?

How can you tell with all the screaming and the boys whining and grunting the lyrics?

Wow seems like theres a few blind fans commenting on here. Why are you all hating on the review, overall it was very positive. And everyone knows that prepubescent girls are ridiculously annoying in their musical tastes (Backstreet boys, Hanna Montana...need I say more).

But to their credit at least the brothers write their own music (from what I've been told) and actually play their own instruments.

And Ashley, they are not popular and successful because of their music. They are successful because they are marketable to young girls who have the capability to drive the music market unlike any other demographic. This is because the daughter always gets what she wants, and she wants overly processed, teeny-booper, faux pop rock, sung by attractive, young,(but older than themselves -little girls always want an older "man"), boys.

They are part of the Disney marketing machine. They can take any no talent and make him or her a superstar. Hilary Duff can't act or sing. Her idea of acting is that little squeak she does, yet Lizzie McGuire was a big hit. Dylan and Cole Sprouse can't act, yet they have their own popular show. All those teeneybopper little girls are taken in by the marketing hype and not by true talent.

It takes alot to stand up on a stage in front of millons of people and do something like that. You should not judge someone if you have not tried it before!!!! And I like the Jonas brothers. Does that mean I am a teenibopper because I am almost 18 years old! Your mean!

How could yout tell? From what I've been told it was one primal scream. From the audience.
