Jonas Brothers and The Jacksons to play here


Two major American pop acts made up of siblings are set to stage gigs in Singapore.

Boy band Jonas Brothers will perform at Fort Canning Park on Oct 22, their first gig in Singapore, while pop veterans The Jacksons, formerly known as Jackson 5, are set to rock the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Dec 15.

One of the most successful boy bands in recent years, Jonas Brothers are former Disney teen actors and singers who have sold eight million albums worldwide.

The Jacksons, who now comprise Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, and Tito, reunited in April this year. The group, whose previous line-up included the late pop star Michael Jackson, rose to fame in the 1970s with soul/pop/funk hits such as ABC, I'll Be There and Never Can Say Goodbye.
