The Jonas Brothers might say it was just "what a man gotta do."
Or, in this case, what the whole band had to do: cancel its April performances in Las Vegas as government and health officials urge social isolation to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pop band scuttled its residency at Park MGM “after careful consideration and growing concern for our fans, touring staff, and families’ wellness,” according to a statement posted on Instagram.
The residency was supposed to last from April 1 through April 18.

“We did not make this decision lightly,” the brothers wrote on Instagram. “We were SO excited for the opportunity to share an amazing show with you guys, but nothing is more important than everyone’s health and safety.”
According to the post, all tickets will be refunded “at the original point of purchase.”
