Disney-programmed animatronic pop robots Disney-backed pop stars will visit Jobing.com Arena in Glendale on Tuesday, August 11, as of their upcoming world tour. Fresh off the heels of last month's flick Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (which has taken in a rather disappointing $19 million), the tween heartthrobs will be circling the globe in support of their soon-to-be-released album. Local Idol-made-good Jordin Sparks and New Jersey pop-rockers Honor Society will open the show.
