    Swine Flu Scares Off the Jonas Brothers

    The Jonas Brothers don't intend to catch anything harsher than the "Love Bug."

    Just as Hugh Jackman is preparing to cross the border with Wolverine, the tween-pleasing trio has postponed two Sunday concerts in Mexico to July 31 in light of the recent swine flu outbreak.

    "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 Arena Monterrey's website. "That is why we hope that your experience and your enjoyment of the concert will be as pleasant as possible."

    Joe, Nick and Kevin had been planning to pop-rock the house twice Sunday, in the afternoon and evening.

    The H1N1 flu scare has put the kibosh on multiple movie premieres in Mexico, including expected blockbusters Angels & Demons and Terminator: Salvation, which now won't open until June and July, respectively.

    While the cancellation of Wolverine's red-carpet premiere on April 29 didn't seem to hurt the action hit ($85 million opening weekend), its titular hero is planning to show up in the country's capital May 26 to "provide a moment of fun escapism and a treat for some of the loyal fans of the comic," Jackman announced via Twitter last week.
