The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato rocked The Ford Center in Oklahoma City
Tuesday night on the fourth stop of their summer-long "Burnin' Up" tour.
three brothers stirred up a frenzy of shrieking teens, tweens and pretweens
with their mere presence, my own 14-year-old daughter, Amber Gillmore
She is usually too-cool-for-school, emo-ing out to Fall Out Boy
and Panic At The Disco style artists but Tuesday night, she shed her
inhibitions and joined the "Jo-Bro" mania with the passion and complete
abandon only a 14-year-old can muster.
So, since she is a devoted fan, a good writer (she wrote great reviews of
the Fall Out Boy concert last fall and the new Harry Potter book and movie
last summer), and my willing slave for supplying her with close up, free
concert review tickets, I will turn over the keyboard to her so that she can
enlighten you with her take on the biggest Oklahoma City concert event of
Hello again! That's right, I'm back, this time with my take on
Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato! I was so excited when my mom asked me if I'd
like to not only go to the Jonas Brothers show, but if I'd like to go for
free and write a review. I thought, 'DUH! Of course I'll do it!' So here it
First, opening act Demi Lovato ate up the stage with her angelic voice,
heart-felt lyrics, and moves only a true rocker can produce. She danced
around as if she owned the stage, and managed to win over pretty much
everyone in the audience.
Some of her best songs were "That's How You Know,"
and "2 Worlds." And when she dedicated the song "Forget" to everyone who's
been forgotten by the one they loved, I'm sure she touched many hearts.
When Lovato finished her set with the song "Get Back," she made sure that
not a soul in the house--at least under age 20--wasn't amped for Jonas
In between Lovato's set and Jonas Brothers', Jumbotrons (a.k.a. gigantic
video screens) flashed text messages from die-hard JoBro fans. Every couple
of texts, there'd be one saying something like "Marry Me, Joe!" or "Scream
if U Love JB!! " The screaming was fun the first few times, but let me tell
you, I'll never hear properly again. But it was oh, so worth it.
Finally! It was time for brothers Kevin Jonas, 20, Joe Jonas, 18, and Nick
Jonas, 15, to take stage! A cacophony of eardrum-shattering, floor-shaking
screams and shrieks echoed through The Ford Center as the Jonas Brothers
rose through the stage floor on a giant platform.
