Penn State coach tweets to Jonas Brothers day before tour stop announcement
The Jonas Brothers just can’t stay away from State College.
The trio — who made a surprise visit to Champs in downtown State College in April — just announced five new stops in their “Happiness Begins” tour, including one at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sept. 4.
Beginning Aug. 7 in Miami, the tour will include new stops in Albany, State College, Cincinnati, Birmingham and a second show at The Forum in Los Angeles Dec. 15.
Tickets for the new dates go on sale for the general public on Friday, June 14 at 10 a.m. local time on LiveNation.com. Tickets for all other dates are on sale now.
In a Twitter exchange on Sunday, Penn State Head Football Coach James Franklin asked whether the Jonas Brothers would make a stop in State College.
“Hey @jonasbrothers!” he tweeted. “I see you making stops in Philly, Pittsburgh & Hershey ... when are you heading to Happy Valley?”
Joe Jonas replied to the tweet with a smirking face emoji and monocle face emoji, and the State College announcement came a day later.
The “Happiness Begins” tour is the first headline tour for the Jonas Brothers in almost a decade, according to a press release. On tour, the Grammy-nominated trio will be joined by artists Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw.
The group first appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart more than 12 years ago and recently released a comeback single, “Sucker,” according to Billboard.
