    Jonas Brothers are gearing up for their world tour and release of their new album.

    Saturday the Cowboys Stadium got a second chance to make a first impression.

    About 50,000 teen and tween Jonas Brothers fans desended upon Cowboys Stadium for the kick-off of the JoBros world tour. The concert had everything including appearances by Miley Cyrus and Jordin Sparks.

    Brett Daniels, spokesman for the Cowboys, said they addressed all the complaints they recieved opening night at the George Strait concert. 

    Since the June 6 opening, construction workers have put the finishing touches on the stadium, stocked concession stands and re-trained employees.

    Cowoys Stadium catered to the tween crowd and their parents. Lot 11 was designated a space where parents could drop their kids off and pick up them up after the concert if they didn't want to sit through a concert filled with screaming teens. 

    The lot located at North Collins and Cowboys Way allowed parents to park for free after 8 p.m. Extra security patroled Lot 11 to make sure kids were safe.

    While they waited, parents hung out at a hospitality tent  set up in the west end zone plaza. Free food -- including hot dogs, hamburgers and soda -- were provided for parents inside the hospitality tent.

    Fans complained cell phone service was spotty at the George Strait concert. Temporary cell phone towers were set up at the stadium for maximum signal strength.

    Daniels said more directional signs have been posted so fans can get around easier.

    Parking was another issue for fans who complained about the $40 pricetag. For the Jonas Brothers concert, the price of parking dropped to $30.
