The Jonas Brothers Hold A 1-Night Concert In Manila

The Jonas Brothers returned to Manila and celebrated five albums through a one-night concert at the MOA Arena.

American pop band Jonas Brothers held their one-night concert at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on Thursday, February 22. Ovation Productions announced their return to the Philippines last year and tickets went on sale in January. The brothers’ last concert in the country was in 2012, both at the arena and the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu.

Prior to the concert, the brothers posted a few moments basking in Filipino culture as they were seen onboard a jeepney.

Kevin and Joe arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 separate from Nick, who arrived hours later. Entertainment reporter MJ Felipe had a chance to welcome the latter when he set foot at the airport and asked him how it felt like to return to the country.

“Excited for the show tomorrow, it’s going to be fun,” Nick answered. 

The brothers bonded in different parts of the city before the concert. They were seen aboard a jeepney and Nick posted an Instagram story of them working out in a gym prior to performing. Joe also uploaded a photo on Instagram, captioning it with “Taking in that sweet Manila sun.”

“Way too long”

Joe chronicled to fans that he and his brothers arrived the night before the concert and had a chance to enjoy Manila.

“All day we’ve been exploring your beautiful city so we’re thrilled to be here,” he said. The singer added the three of them were excited to perform for their Filipino fans.

Manila, it’s been way too long,” Joe remarked. “Thank you for the beautiful reception.” He teased the crowd that the concert would take fans “way back” to which Nick chimed in that they will be celebrating five albums.

Joe Jonas greeted Filipino fans on their concert and Nick Jonas chimed in, saying their performances will span five albums.

The boys kicked it off with “What A Man Gotta Do.” They ended the show with “Leave Before You Love Me,” before bidding goodbye to their fans.

Jonas Brothers’ The World Tour will head to Jakarta, Indonesia next and then proceed to New Zealand and Australia in March.
