When the Jonas Brothers say their new tour includes five albums in one night, they’re not kidding.
For almost exactly three hours on Saturday, August 12th at Yankee Stadium, Joe, Nick and Kevin played at least one chorus, often more, of 66 (!) songs.
The setlist included every single track from the albums Jonas Brothers, A Little Bit Longer, Lines, Vines, and Trying Times, Happiness Begins and their latest The Album, as well as recent non-album singles and , “Year 3000,” of course.
They even made room for Nick to play “Jealous” from his self-titled solo album and “Cake by the Ocean” by DNCE, a band fronted by Joe.
“The Tour” is for the OGs, as Nick said during the show – the people who’ve been there from the start, including this reporter – And for everyone who has since found their way into the Jonas Brothers fan base. That’s the beauty of a show like The Tour: no matter what your favorite Jonas Brothers tune is, you’re going to hear it at some point throughout the night.
(Personally, for me, it was “Tonight” and “Sorry,” both from “A Little Bit Longer” and “Fly With Me.”)
Highlights of the night included the ballad When You Look Me in the Eyes, fan favorite Lovebug, Walls featuring Jon Bellion and the start of the album set Happiness Begins, which began with Comeback. and “Rollercoaster,” two songs commemorating the band’s breakup in 2013 and reunion in 2019. Another funny moment came when Joe asked the audience to start straight with the wave, while Nick gave a speech before a heartfelt ballad (the audience complied, of course).
The tour is not included much Spectacular – there’s the obligatory pyro during “Burnin’ Up” and fireworks that were probably only seen at Yankee Stadium concerts – because the music really takes center stage. All three brothers spent a lot of time at the very end of the runway interacting with each other, with the fans in the front rows and with the members of their large, talented backing band.
The songs from The Album were spread out throughout the night while the other four records played in full and chronologically. There was even an intermission between “A Little Bit Longer” and “Lines, Vines, and Trying Times” – the opening show had an intermission of about 20 minutes, but it started pouring right at the beginning of the intermission.
This timing may vary as going forward, The Tour will primarily be held in indoor arenas.
A break at a concert might seem unnecessary, but this is the kind of show that never takes your foot off the gas. When it actually happened, it was nice to take a break to drink more water (because it’s very important to stay hydrated when you’re screaming and dancing), use the restroom, and just have a few Sitting down for minutes without wanting to You missed the fun.
The biggest surprise of the night for us came at the end of the ‘A Little Bit Longer’ album set when they performed their first platinum single ‘Burnin’ Up’. Though fans of the show didn’t hear Nick’s iconic “red dress” in the second verse on Saturday night, we did get to see Big Rob, the brothers’ former bodyguard, take to the stage to rap his verse for the track. It prompted one of the loudest reactions of the evening; The crowd left wild for the special guest and of course as an OG fan I was right there with them.
No matter how much time has passed, watching a new Jonas Brothers show always feels like coming home, and I’m already planning to catch The Tour’s final show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in December.
