The Jonas Brothers and Lawrence Create a Night We Won’t Forget

I’ve been to the year 2023. A lot has changed, but everybody still loves the Jonas Brothers!

With the sibling trio’s sold-out Broadway residency in March and the release of THE ALBUM in May, you’d think it was the early 2000s. However, fans are still head over heels for the “Lovebug” singers nearly two decades after their debut.

August 12 through the end of this year, the Jonas Brothers are hitting the road for THE TOUR. On each stop, Joe, Nick, and Kevin will perform five of their albums in their entirety, plus a few additional surprises.

On August 15 and 16, Boston was treated to this special engagement. 

Lawrence set energy and expectations high with their impressive opening set. 

The eight-piece soul-pop band fronted by brother and sister duo, Clyde and Gracie Lawrence brought their high-energy vocals, explosive melodies, and old-school sound to Boston fans. 

Originally formed as a college band at Brown University, the group has steadily outgrown smaller venues as more people have discovered their brilliant songwriting and unparalleled live performances. Lawrence worked the arena stage and crowd like old pros during performances of songs like “Don’t Lose Sight,” “The Heartburn Song,” and their new single “I’m confident that I’m insecure.” By the end of the set, they had a whole arena full of new fans. 

These two sibling groups are more closely related than you might think. Jon Bellion, who co-produced the Jonas Brothers’ latest album, was also the producer on Lawrence’s third album released via Bellion’s Beautiful Mind Records. Clyde also contributed to the writing and production of the Jonas Brothers’ “Wings,” the first song on the album and the Brothers’ set.

The crowd erupted as Joe, Nick, and Kevin epically appeared from below the stage in a cloud of smoke to start their portion of the show.

The Jonas Brothers took things to new highs with a full band rendition of “Wings,” followed by “Celebrate!.” 

There was a lot to celebrate: their parent’s anniversary, Joe’s Birthday, and a two-decade musical journey.

“While these songs are all songs we all wrote about our experiences, our heartbreaks, our moments of falling in love, family, we know that we shared with each and every one of you, and so these are your songs and your albums just as much as they are our songs and our albums.” Nick shared with the fans who have grown along with the Brothers. 

The band used every corner of the venue and multiple stages to engage with those fans. Joe even stopped to draw a self-portrait, which a fan later got tattooed.

The setlist ranged between selections from their 2006 debut, It’s About Time, all the way through to their latest project, THE ALBUM. Songs like “S.O.S.” had us nostalgic for their Disney Channel days, while “Little Bird” made us excited for the future. 

Nick kept the nostalgia going with a rare performance of his infamous “Red Dress” line during “Burnin’ Up,” which had both the crowd and Joe shook.

The night even included some additions from Joe and Nick’s solo projects. Nick proved that he still gets Jealous with a performance of the 2014 hit, while Joe served “Cake by the Ocean,” a selection from his band DNCE. 

Joe also was treated to actual cake for his 34th birthday and a surprise performance of the viral hit “Planet of the Bass” from DJ Crazy Time and Ms. Biljana Electronica.

Whether it was reminiscing on old memories or creating new ones…we’re going to want to remember this!
