We Will Always Remember


Since being on lockdown due to Covid-19, Las Vegas is finally allowed to be at 100 percent capacity in public places as long as masks are being worn indoors. This means Vegas can hold what it’s best known for – shows and concerts. Last weekend, the Jonas Brothers performed two nights at Park Theatre as part of their “Remember this Tour”.

There was a long line of screaming fans with signs showing their excitement to see the first show of the tour. The line wound through the MGM owned casino and the theatre was packed.

The show started with opening artist, Jordan Mcgraw. It seemed as if no one in the crowd knew his songs. He was also the opener for the Jonas Brothers, on their “Happiness Begins” tour back in October 2019. Overall, not a fan favorite.

Country artist Kelsea Ballerini, however, opened for the Jonas Brothers for the very first time. Before coming on stage, Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” started playing and everyone was hyped up. Shania has a single with Ballerini that was released in 2020, “Hole in the Bottle”, which Ballerini performed on stage with her other hit songs.

Ballerini has charisma and natural stage presence and she wowed the crowd with her performance. She talked a little bit about how she has been a Jonas Brothers fan since she was at least twelve years old and in that day and age she grew up listening to Taylor Swift. She included a chorus of Swift’s “Teardrop On My Guitar”, which the crowd loved. Ballerini definitely gained some fans from Las Vegas.

Then it was time for the headliners! The Jonas Brothers started off their show with the song “Remember This” and towards the end fans held up signs reading “We will always remember”. They continued playing a set that included “Only Human”, “What a Man Gotta Do”, and “Cool”. Back in 2013 the Jonas Brothers broke up and Joe Jonas joined a band as the lead singer called DNCE. JinJoo Lee, the guitarist for DNCE, joined the brothers on stage for the DNCE covers of “Cake by the Ocean ” and “Toothbrush”, which were well known hits. She stayed on stage for the remainder of the show. Throughout the show there were a variety of pyrotechnics which included flames, fireworks and other stage effects used in the entertainment industry and which complemented the music perfectly. The Jonas Brothers continued playing the rest of their set and ended with the combination of everybody’s favorite song from 2006, “Year 3000”, followed by a new hit off their latest album,“Sucker”.
This show was definitely a success and the fans clearly appreciated being able to rock out in Vegas again.
