Last night I caught a glimpse of heaven. It looked like this:
Last night my mom, my two younger sisters and I went to see the Jonas Brothers at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. And it was AMAZING. We were in the sixth row, dead center, a perfect spot. I swear, sometimes it felt like they were looking straight at us. ^_^
We made our own shirts for this concert, in an eye-catching pink:
It was a long drive down to Cincinnati – almost 3 hours – but no distance is too far to see the Jonas Brothers. The venue was an open air pavilion and it was unbelievably hot, which only meant it was even hotter once the guys finally took the stage and the whole crowd was on their feet and dancing. I think I might have lost three pounds in sweat.
The show opened with the musical duo of Karmin. They were pretty awesome and got the crowd pumped up (as if they weren’t enough already) to see the Jonas Brothers.
Then the moment arrived. It was time for the Jonas Brothers to take the stage. The crowd exploded into cheers and screams of an incredible decibel level (I’m fairly certain I momentarily went deaf) as they took their places on the stage. After three years of hiatus, it was beyond wonderful to see them together on stage again. It was like all was right with the world once more.
They started it off with their new single, First Time and followed up with an awesome line up of their songs – new and old. Pom Poms, Burnin’ Up, S.O.S., That’s Just the Way We Roll, Paranoid, Fly With Me, Turn Right and When You Look Me in the Eyes were just a few of the songs in that line up. They also sang some of the songs from Joe and Nick’s separate solo albums – Who I Am, Last Time Around and See No More. New songs (that will be on the upcoming album, titled “V”) included Found, What Do I Mean To You, The World, and Don’t Say. One lucky fan even got to come up on stage and sing Still In Love With You with the guys – and she totally rocked it. I won’t say I wasn’t jealous!
Needless to say I sang my heart out along with the rest of the crowd. It seemed like the guys were really blown away by the crowd’s reaction – they were loving us singing along and gave us lots of chances to do so. I’ve been to three Jonas concerts (and one Big Time Rush concert) so far and I am still blown away by the feeling of an entire arena singing along – there’s nothing like it.
The concert let out at 11 PM, which meant we didn’t get home until almost 2 AM, but it was totally worth it. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Kevin, Joe, Nick and their fantastic crew for putting on such an awesome show and making last night an unforgettable experience!
