On October 8th 2013, the Jonas Brothers decided to take the stage for the last time before separating to focus on their individual journeys as brothers. Nick, with his solo career; Joe with the band DNCE and Kevin with raising a family and his new interest in entrepreneurial endeavors. But after almost a 7 year hiatus, the brothers sat down, and discussed what it was really like during those teenage days on Disney. The documentary Happiness Begins on Prime, shows the pain and suffering the brothers had to go through in order to build their relationship as a family. Soon after the release of their documentary, the Jonas Brothers announced their return with the Happiness Begins Tour.
On August 27th the Jonas Brothers took the stage in Buffalo, New York, their 12th stop for Happiness Begins. The show opened with the title Rollercoaster, “it was fun when we were young and now we're older, Joe sang while screaming fans jumped up and down singing along. “Those days that we were broke in California, we were up and down and barely made it over, but I’d go back and ride that Rollercoaster”. Kevin Joe and Nick entered the stage through the ceiling wearing bright orange, green and blue suits. The crowd was mixed with 2008 Jonas Brothers tee shirts, high heels, and red dresses. As the show went on, with the brothers walking through the crowd of screaming fans to get to the center of the arena, “this is the part of the show were you decide what to play next,'' said Joe. Nick Continues, “We have written over 200 songs together, so playing all of them for you is unlikely, but it was because of you that all of these songs were written and heard so this is to say thank you”. The crowd chose ‘Gotta Find You’ from the 2008 movie Camp Rock.
The boys returned to the front stage to sing their first radio single Cool, while also singing a bit of the individuals solo work (with a bit of a twist). Joe Jonas sang a bit of Nick Jonas’ Jealous, while the opposite happened with DNCE’s Cake by the Ocean. Kevin Disappeared but rose up from the stage with a white piano, “thank you for waiting for us,'' Kevin announced before the song ‘Comeback’ began to play. “Comeback to me baby I’ll come back to you” the song sings as many fans began to tear up. “Light up my world like only you can do” Joe sang until Nick rose up and continued the rest of the chorus.
The Concert went on for about two hours with new and older music from the band's past. By the end of the performance, there was not a dry eye in the house. The brothers exited the stage with their 2013 hit ‘Burning Up’ flames and confetti shot out into the audience while everyone danced and sang along to a song from their childhood.
