LOS ANGELES, March 11 (UPI) -- The U.S. pop group Jonas Brothers Wednesday announced the dates and cities for "The Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009."

The Live Nation-produced tour, which will include dates on three continents, will feature new music from the group's upcoming album, which is set to drop June 15.

Slated to kick off June 20, in the Dallas Cowboys new stadium in Arlington, Texas, the tour will take the band to 44 cities throughout the United States and Canada.

Jonas Brothers will also play three European dates, including recently sold-out shows at Paris' Zenith Arena and London's Wembley Arena, plus a just-added date at Madrid's Palacio De Deportes.

Additional European shows will be announced soon along with debut tour dates in South America, Live Nation said.

"This tour is going to be about really connecting with our fans," Joe Jonas said in a statement. "We've got new music that's taking us in new directions plus a mind-blowing production that's going to surprise everyone. We want to give the audience the summer concert they're not going to ever forget."

"The Jonas Brothers are a worldwide phenomenon," added Jason Garner, chief executive officer of global music at Live Nation. "In 2008, their global tour included 113 concerts and drew nearly 1.2 million fans. The band is now more popular than ever -- with a new movie, album, TV show and book -- and we are optimistic that this summer's tour attendance will reflect that popularity."
