Nick Jonas plots tour with side project

, Staff

Nick Jonas, the youngest member of the multi-platinum selling Jonas Brothers, will hit the road early next year without his brothers. Jonas will be debuting his new side project, Nick Jonas and the Administration, with a nationwide tour of theatres. The band will hit Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Tuesday, January 12. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $39.50 to $49.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Diane Birch will open the show.

Jonas and company will be touring in support of his forthcoming album, Who I Am, which is scheduled to drop in stores on February 2. The album was recorded earlier this year at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios. Jonas enlisted producer John Fields and they quickly pulled together an “A-Team” of musicians, which they gave the moniker “The Administration.”  Together they worked on Who I Am, which contains material culled from three years of song ideas not quite right for the Jonas Brothers.

The tour will feature the songs from Nick Jonas & The Administration’s Who I Am as well as some surprise cover songs and a handful of Jonas Brothers songs that are personal to Jonas. “With this tour we’re going to try to accomplish the same thing we did in the studio,” Jonas explained in a press release. “That’s capturing some heart and soul in the music, and having fun doing it.”
