The Jonas Brothers came to Cincinnati Sept. 11 as part of the “Happiness Begins” world tour. Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas began their world tour after launching their new album Happiness Begins in June.

Although it’s been more than 10 years since the peak of the Jonas Brothers’ fame, fans are still as excited as ever about this group of brothers.

With this in mind, the brothers have fashioned their show to pay homage to their roots but also present their new passions and identity as a group.

The show features classic songs from their earlier days as a group, such as “Burnin’ Up” and “Year 3000,” and debuts new material like “I Believe,” “Cool” and “Sucker” from their new album, Happiness Begins. The show also includes singles from the brothers’ other projects, such as Nick’s “Jealous.”

Sophomore biology and psychology double major Abby Rose was one of the Xavier students who attended the Cincinnati show with the Students Activity Council.

“It was probably one of my favorite concerts so far,” Rose said. “It had a good blend of new and old songs, including ones from Nick’s solo career, so all of their fans could enjoy their time.”

She added that the videos played between songs were her favorite part of the show.

“They really told the story of their lives and how they broke apart and finally were able to mend those broken bonds,” Rose said.

The Jonas Brothers are traveling with artists Jordan McGraw and Bebe Rexha, who serve as the openers for the show. The tour will conclude in Paris, France, in February of 2020 after its seven- month run.
