The Jonas Brothers were forced to delay their headline set at an early Fourth of July celebration in Florida on Wednesday (03Jul13) after a storm turned the event into a washout.

The pop star siblings were among the acts set to perform at the Red Hot & Boom event in Orlando, ahead of America's Independence Day on Thursday (04Jul13), but torrential downpours put a damper on the show.

Taking to to apologise for fans waiting to watch their show, Nick Jonas writes, "Sorry for the delay everyone at red hot and boom (sic). We lost all power to the stage and with the thunderstorm coming safety comes first."

His brother Kevin added, "So sorry about this for everyone at red white and boom (sic) in Orlando we will keep you posted on what happens."
