The Jonas Brothers certainly made sure their Nashville fans were going to “Remember This” show. The three brothers took the stage for night one of their two-night stint in Music City on September 16th—cranking out hit after hit, but not before a shimmering Kelsea Ballerini could stun the crowd.

Both Ballerini’s vocals and style shined. She sparkled in a gorgeous blue Dolce & Gabbana jumpsuit outlined in silver rhinestones, solidifying the superstar she is. She belted out staple singles like “Peter Pan,” “I Miss Me More,” and “I Quit Drinking.” She delighted fans with a medley of throwback hits including Britney Spears’s “Lucky” and Taylor Swift’s “Teardrops On My Guitar.” She closed out her set with her megahit Chainsmokers collaboration “This Feeling” which got fans ready for the brothers they came to see.

Kevin, Nick and Joe opened their set with their tour’s namesake “Remember This” followed by an entire performance that lived up to the track. Nashville night one doubled as Nick Jonas’s 29th birthday celebration—and fans were given several gifts. The trio debuted their newest single “Who’s In Your Head” and got a glimpse of Nick’s 5 layer golf themed birthday cake on stage (Nick even admitted he forgot to sing his part in “Love Bug” because he was admiring it). 

Perhaps the biggest surprise of all was when the birthday boy sang his ever-elusive “RED DRESS” line in the band’s hit “Burnin’ Up” for the first time in recent history. Joe even looked surprised! For several years he typically had the crowd sing that part instead. Needless to say fans erupted with cheers. 

The brothers cranked out all of their fan favorites—including “SOS,” “That’s Just The Way We Roll,” “Fly With Me,” “Hold On,” and Camp Rock’s “Play My Music” from their Disney Channel days. Fans also got a medley of Joe and Nick’s solo career hits.

The Jonas Brothers slipped away for a few minutes before returning to the stage to finish out the night with arguably their most iconic track “Year 3000” and their 2019 comeback song “Sucker.”
