Childhood flashed before the eyes of millions of people when the Jonas Brothers announced that they would be getting back together. Shortly after reactivating the band’s social media accounts, the Jonas Brothers announced that they were going to release their first single in nearly six years. Though, audiences were quick to forget that in 2013, the Jonas Brothers briefly united again with the release of their song, “Pom Poms.”
On Friday, March 1, 2019, the Jonas Brothers released “Sucker,” which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 during the week of March 16. The song has accumulated nearly 205 million views on YouTube since and can still be heard on radio stations worldwide.
On Friday, June 7, the Jonas Brothers released their fifth studio album, called “Happiness Begins,” which includes 14 new songs. In order to promote their new album, the Jonas Brothers hit the road in August with their “Happiness Begins” tour, which is set to travel all over the world until Feb. 2020. From Aug. 29-30, the Jonas Brothers played at Madison Square Garden in New York City for over 20,000 fans, alongside Jordan McGraw and “Meant to Be” singer Bebe Rexha. The show opened with Nick, Kevin and Joe walking out in brightly colored suits of green, purple and pink, starting the show off with “Rollercoaster.”
After the initial shock of the band hitting the stage together for the first time in nearly a decade, the Jonas Brothers played some older fan favorites, including “S.O.S.,” “Fly With Me” and “That’s Just The Way We Roll.” During the show, they took several minutes to express their gratitude to the fans that had been there since the beginning and thanked them for sticking around after so many years. The Jonas Brothers eventually made their way to the back of the arena, where they took a shot with fans. On the small rotating stage in the back of the arena, the Jonas Brothers took song requests. The surprise song they played was “Gotta Find You” from the Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock,” and the audience sang every word.
The show ended with an encore of arguably two of the Jonas Brothers’ most popular songs: “Burnin’ Up” and “Sucker.” During “Burnin’ Up,” the stage lit up with bursts of fire and colorful pyrotechnics that brought the song to life. The show closed on a high note with “Sucker,” which had audience members jumping and singing along for the last few minutes of the night. According to Billboard.com, the Jonas Brothers’ “Happiness Begins” tour has accumulated nearly $20 million after its first 12 shows and is predicted to grow.
