Nick Jonas & The Administration announced tour dates for their 2010 tour with kick off January 2, 2010 in Dallas at House of Blues and wind up January 30 in Berkeley, CA at Zellerbach Auditorium. The shows will be intimate in their setting, reflecting the more raw and powerful feel of their upcoming album, Who I Am, which is due out February 2 on Hollywood Records.
Tickets are set to go on sale starting December 5 on LiveNation.com in select cities with fan club presale access beginning tomorrow. Earlier this year, Nick flew to Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with 3 years worth of song ideas not quite right for the Jonas Brothers, and recorded his side project, Who I Am.

He enlisted producer John Fields, and they quickly pulled together an ‘A-Team’ of musicians, which they gave the moniker ‘The Administration.’ The Administration is made up of some of the world’s most accomplished musicians. John Fields plays bass, and he’s joined by drummer Michael Bland and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, both of whom played in the New Power Generation.
Though guitarist David Ryan Harris played on the album, another former NPG member, Sonny Thompson will join Nick & The Administration on tour. Fans can catch a glimpse of their dynamic performance on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live! Special airing Wednesday, December 2 on CBS at 9PM.
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 Nick: ‘With this tour we’re going to try to accomplish the same thing we did in the studio. That’s capturing some heart and soul in the music, and having fun doing it.’ S-Curve recording artist Diane Birch will be the featured special guest. Diane’s critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Bible Belt’ is in stores now. Dates under!
