|Jonas Brothers concert chronology|
The Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009 was the sixth concert tour and third headlining tour by the Jonas Brothers. It began on May 18, 2009 in Lima, Peru and ended on December 13, 2009 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Jonas Brothers played on multiple continents around the world. Honor Society served as an opening act, with Jordin Sparks as a special guest. The tour coincided with the release of their fourth studio album Lines, Vines and Trying Times which was released on June 16, 2009. The tour won the Eventful Fans' Choice Award at the 2009 Billboard Touring Awards and became the 6th highest selling tour in 2009 after The Circus Tour, the I Am... Tour, the Sticky & Sweet Tour, the U2 360° Tour and the Wonder World Tour.
The stage was set up as an in-the-round at the center of the venue measuring 144-feet-wide to allow for better audience viewing. It incorporated many features such as a one of a kind large circular water screen, a giant crane that extends over the audience, laser and automated video effects and a double Lazy Susan at the center stage, consisting of one in the center and an outer one as a ring around the other. It was designed similar to Britney Spears' Circus Tour. The tour used this stage for all of its legs except for the Caribbean and the South America legs of the tour, where a regular stage with catwalk was used instead.
British girl group Girls Can't Catch performed in United Kingdom tour dates.
The Wonder Girls, a South Korean girl group, joined the Jonas Brothers in various North American tour dates. Although, on July 1, it was announced that the Jonas Brothers and their management asked the Wonder Girls to open for their entire tour.
Also new pop singer Jessie James was added as a guest on tour. She served as a host for the concerts in June introducing each act and performing her single Wanted. She performed in all of the shows in June, 2009. She however did not perform at the Portland, Oregon concert.
Jordin Sparks did not appear at the San Antonio or Nashville shows because of throat problems, which couldn't let her sing. She did not appear at the New Orleans show because she was attending her boyfriend's funeral.
