This past Tuesday night (9/10/19), the Jonas Brothers came to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN for their Happiness Begins Tour and boy was it something else! The Jonas Brothers put on a spectacular show, like always, but this show was different from the other shows they’ve played thus far…
It started with us making a simple sign saying, “Thank you for coming back to us” on the front and instructions on the back to hold the sign up during the song “Comeback.” We printed 16,000 copies, and you can only imagine how hard it would be to get all 16,000 signs on every seat in the arena. So, nine super fans (Emily Hume, Haylee Powell, Emily Daniel, Katie Iles, Emily Sweat, Becca Brown, Marilyn Lauterbach, Anna Kowalewicz, and Sarah Beth Perry) came to the rescue!
“Comeback’ was the perfect song to choose for our fan project, and ‘thank you for coming back to us,’ seemed like the perfect message to send to the band,” said founder & CEO of With the Band, Sarah Beth Perry.
Right when the band started to play “Comeback”, we saw a few signs go up and all of a sudden, an arena full of signs waving in the air. Fans began to tear up, including the Jonas Brothers themselves! Since this is the Jonas Brothers Reunion Tour, With the Band wanted to make something that every fan in the audience was thinking, “thank you for coming back to us”.
This is the largest fan project the Jonas Brothers have seen to date. None of this would be possible without all of the fans who participated, and of course the Jonas Brothers for all of their music that we love so much!
Here is some of the feedback we have gotten from this fan project:
“This is such a beautiful site” -Nick Jonas
“An arena full of signs (organized by the fans) that read thank you for coming back had my eyes feeling a bit watery. We have the best fans in the world. Thank you NASHVILLE. We love you.” - Nick Jonas
“Wow” - Joe Jonas
“That’s amazing dude congrats” - Ryan Tedder
“This is THE SWEETEST!!” - Kelly Rowland
