Jonas Brothers return to the road later this year.
For the first time in six years, Jonas Brothers will hit the road. The world-conquering boy band announced the 40-city “Happiness Begins” tour Wednesday, which kicks off Aug. 7 at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena and concludes Oct. 20 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.
Along the way, Jonas Brothers will play several major arenas, including New York’s Madison Square Garden (Aug. 29), Chicago’s United Center (Sept. 19) and San Francisco’s new Chase Center (Oct. 8).
Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw will provide support on the Live Nation-produced tour.
Late last month, Jonas Brothers shared plans to release Happiness Begins, the band’s fifth studio album and first since 2009’s platinum-certified Lines, Vines and Trying Times. In March, Jonas Brothers released its comeback single “Sucker,” which became the first Jonas Brothers song to hit No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100.
Jonas Brothers last toured in summer 2013, with boxoffice highlights including 9,000 tickets sold and $428,052 grossed at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, N.Y., and 5,482 tickets sold and $355,813 grossed at Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City Walk in Universal City, Calif.
But the year ended in frustration for the band and fans alike: Jonas Brothers called off a 19-date fall 2013 tour two days before its scheduled start due to a “deep rift within the band.”
Jonas Brothers’ 2009 tour – its last to hit North American arenas – was far more successful, ranking No. 9 on Pollstar‘s Top 50 Worldwide Concert Tours chart that year with $96.6 million grossed and 1.56 million tickets sold.
The “Happiness Begins” tour will revisit several of the arenas Jonas Brothers played on that 2009 tour, including Houston’s Toyota Center and Washington, D.C.’s Capital One Arena, where, a decade ago, the band grossed $1.178 million and $1.175 million, respectively.
Though Jonas Brothers stayed off the road after 2013, Nick Jonas launched a successful solo career, releasing albums in 2014 and 2016, and embarking on a lucrative 2017 tour with Demi Lovato and Mike Posner that secured a spot on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart with $17.4 million grossed.
Tickets for the “Happiness Begins” tour go on sale to the public on May 10. Find the list of dates below.
