LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4 (UPI) -- U.S. pop music act Jonas Brothers has signed a worldwide touring deal with Live Nation, the company that ran recent tours for Madonna and The Police.

The deal, which Live Nation said is the first of its kind for an emerging act, will book the Jonas Brothers in more than 140 theaters and arenas around the world, starting Jan. 31 in


The announcement comes on the heels of a stellar year for the Jonas Brothers, in which the band had their first platinum album, a special guest appearance on the sold-out Miley Cyrus' "Best of Both Worlds" arena tour and massive Internet, radio and TV exposure.

"This band creates pandemonium wherever they go. They sell out dates instantly and always leave their loyal fans wanting more. We couldn't be more thrilled to be partners with them on their journey to super-stardom," Live Nation Vice President Bruce Kapp said in a statement.

"The level of commitment and passion that everyone at Live Nation has shown for our band has been inspiring," the Jonas Brothers added. "Together we are going to bring our show to millions of our fans around the world. We couldn't be more excited about our future together."
