Jonas Brothers on cancelled show: "Safety comes first"

The Jonas Brothers have explained the reason behind their cancelled show, saying the "safety" of their fans comes before anything else.

The pop trio were due to perform at the Darien Center in New York City on Friday night (July 19).

However high winds and lightning forced them to postpone the gig, and the band took to Twitter after the announcement to explain their decision.

The post read: "Hi everyone - sorry we had to postpone tonight's show due to weather! Please seek safe shelter & stay tuned for new date & more info!!

They added: "Again, sorry we had to cancel our show 2nite, but care about the safety of everyone (sic)."

Band member Joe also tweeted: "Very sad we cannot perform tonight's show. We love you all. This weather is crazy. Stay safe. We will be back (sic)."

Prior to show, the singers gushed to E! News about their excitement for their tour dates.

Kevin shared: "We're most excited about playing the new music, and we're playing a lot of it, like six or seven new songs."

Joe added: "It's our first tour [as] all adults now, so it's fun. It's a party on and off stage and we all have a good time."
