Jonas Brothers pen heartfelt farewell letter to fans
The Jonas Brothers have taken to Facebook to share a heartfelt letter with their loyal fans, thanking them for supporting and inspiring them as well as sharing details about how the Team Jonas fan club can get their hands on some brand new music as a last hurrah.
“To Our Dear Friends and Fans Around the World, it is with heavy hearts that we confirm that our time as the Jonas Brothers is over,” begins the letter, which has so far received almost 50,000 likes and over 10,000 shares on Facebook.
“This decision has not come lightly, and we know that many of you will be disappointed. The time has come for us to move forward on individual career paths. We have been a band of brothers for 10 years and are now choosing simply to be brothers. Going forward, you can expect exciting things from each of us, and we will of course continue to support each other in all things.”
After disappointing thousands of fans who had bought tickets to their now-cancelled tour around the US, the trio went on to say how much they valued their support and revealed exactly what is included in the “digital-only album” which will be released to the Team Jonas fan club.
“We would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported and inspired us through the years, and stood by us in this difficult decision. We feel and appreciate your love,” Kevin, Joe and Nick continued.
“Because you waited so long for new music, we want to honor our Team Jonas fan club members by giving you our final album. This digital-only album contains four new studio recordings that would have appeared on our V album (which will now go unreleased). In addition, we're including 10 live tracks that we feel capture the energy and excitement of this past summer's tour.
“Details regarding delivery of this digital album to Team Jonas members will be issued shortly. We hope you enjoy this album as much as we've enjoyed performing for you over the last 10 years. It has been an amazing experience.”
The brothers concluded: “You will always be the best fans in the world. Kevin, Joe & Nick.”
Last week, the band appeared on TV for the first time since they announced they were cancelling their tour, talking to ‘Good Morning America’ about their individual plans for the future – which included solo music projects for Joe and Nick, while Kevin hopes to get funding for an entertainment company.
