If you’re wondering why the streets of downtown Vancouver are filled with blood-curdling screams, three words:
The. Jonas. Brothers.
That’s right, the pop-rock trio of talented, handsome heartthrobs will be taking over Rogers Arena on Friday, October 11th for the Happiness Begins Tour, joined by singers Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw (a.k.a son of the immortal Dr. Phil).
All grown up and tied down in holy matrimony (but still fine as ever), this internationally celebrated band of brothers come off a long hiatus with the highly anticipated comeback album Happiness Begins, featuring head-bopping hits like Sucker and Cool. The album was their third number one album in the US, and peaked at number 1 in the Billboard Canadian Albums chart.
But it’s not just that new album that’ll serve as the highlight of their tour, because much of the anticipation comes from the power of nostalgia. The Jonas Brothers have touched the hearts of many since they skyrocketed to stardom (thanks, Disney!) in 2007, releasing an unforgettable roster of hits like “S.O.S” and “Burnin’ Up”, as well as the oh-so-romantic single “When You Look Me In The Eyes” which melted hearts all around the globe.
The influence of the Jonas Brothers knows no bounds, especially when it comes to the commitment of their loyal fanbase. During their Toronto stop, technical difficulties suddenly halted the show, much to fans’ dismay. However, they came prepared, as fans performed their own encore and sang the brothers’ greatest classics. No degree of tech problems can stop the almighty willpower of screeching fans.
So if you’re attending the concert, bring an umbrella (or build an ark) and brace yourself for the inevitable drenching in the tears of many, and prepare to have your soul warmed with utter joy. Doors open at 6:30pm, with the show starting at 7pm. Prepare yourself, it’s gonna be insanity.
