LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - The Jonas Brothers have postponed Sunday's shows in Monterrey, Mexico to July 31 because of the H1N1 flu that virtually paralyzed the country.

Tickets for the May 17 date, when the trio was scheduled to play afternoon and evening concerts, will be honored on the new day at the same times (3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.).

"We know the situation is stabilizing and that many fans travel long distances to live the experience of seeing a Jonas Brothers concert," read a statement on the Web site of the venue, Arena Monterrey. "That is why we hope that your experience and your enjoyment of the concert will be as pleasant as possible."
