For the first time since 2013, the Jonas Brothers made an appearance in Indianapolis on their Happiness Begins Tour. Inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse felt as if time hadn’t moved since then. The predominantly female audience, varying from all ages, were decked out head to toe in Jonas Brothers merch dating back as far as 2008. Nothing was stopping this crowd from seeing their childhood crushes reunite on stage again. After a messy breakup between the brothers, they came together to make a nostalgic but heroic comeback. 

As the show began, the Jonas Brothers appeared on stage to an uproar of cheering fans, some whom were even crying. They opened the show with a video presentation of each brother finding their childhood self. This was a common theme throughout the concert, which touched the hearts of everyone in the crowd. The brothers began the show with “Rollercoaster”, a song off their newest album, detailing all the hardships the brothers went through in the past 7 years to get to where they are now. The fans were as enthusiastic about their new music as they were with old hits such as “That’s Just the Way We Rolland “Lovebug”. 

The trio then made it a point to throw the crowd into complete reminiscence with beloved throwbacks from their earliest albums. As soon as the 13-year-old song “Year 3000”, blared through the speakers, the fans let out an ear-piercing scream throughout the fieldhouse. 

Along with the iconic throwbacks, Nick and Joe performed a duet of their solo work. Nick’s song “Jealous” and Joe’s other band, DNCE’s song “Cake By the Ocean” was accompanied by fireworks and colorful confetti. 

Despite the magnitude of the show, it was a very touching and personal night. The brothers took time during the night to take in the crowd and appreciate the atmosphere. Kevin, Joe and Nick even took time to thank each other. They seemed genuinely happy to be with each other on stage. 

After a two hour set, the brothers ended their show with two of their biggest hits, “Burnin Up” and “Sucker”. After the show, the crowd left in peace. The night proved that Jonas Brothers fans are still as passionate about the trio as they were back in the Disney Channel days.
