LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Following a sold-out show at a 3,500-capacity club in Mexico City last April, the Jonas Brothers are severely upping the ante with their December 20 return.

The teen heartthrobs will play the capital's Foro Sol, a stadium that seats almost 40,000 people. About three-quarters of the tickets (ranging from about $17 to $134) have been sold.

The group's "A Little Bit Longer" album has been certified gold in Mexico (40,000 copies), according to trade group Amprofon; the trio's self-titled release is platinum (80,000).
