The Jonas Brothers Still Know How To Rock Los Angeles In Concert [PHOTOS]
Their 3 night Los Angeles stint closed last night, to a +2000 crowd of screaming fans. This may sound pretty grandiose, but keep in mind that in 2009, they were selling out the 15,000 seat Staples Center. The smaller venue didn’t seem pathetic though. It just seemed more intimate, even being titled as “An Evening With The Jonas Brothers” rather than a more flashy title. That is a good way to start. Modesty is just so hard to find, nowadays.
With the stage and special effects reduced, the show focused on the music. With a set of over 20 songs, the boys and their backing band of 8 must have been past the point of exhaustion for the sake of the fans. The show opened with the boys’ 2007 hit, S.O.S., and with every person in the audience still knowing every word, it was clear from the beginning that the Jonas Brothers are just as poignant than they ever were. Among songs from their previous 4 albums, Nick and Joe’s solo alums and unreleased songs from their forthcoming album, the band featured acoustic covers of songs from the likes of Frank Ocean, Coldplay, and even Rihanna.
These days, boy bands are a dime a dozen, so it’s getting harder to differentiate. With minimal, if any, digital tracks and an abundance of instrumental accompaniment, the Jonas Brothers emphasized the “Band” in “Boy Band.”
After a 2 song encore of 2 of their most iconic hit songs, the Brothers took their final bow, thanking their fans for their support through the years and calling them “The Best Fans” in the world. The curtains closed and the lights came back on, leaving the theater in an elated frenzy. The concert was an overwhelming success.
It’s still unknown as of yet, when the Jonas Brothers will continue to release new music and tour again, but if their Los Angeles shows are any indication, it will be like the boys have never left.
