Titled the Happiness Begins tour, the trek will find the brothers performing across the continent throughout August, September, and October.

The 40-stop outing will include stops in major markets including Orlando, Atlanta, Toronto, Buffalo, Detroit, Dallas, Vancouver, Philadelphia, Nashville, Anaheim, and more. The Happiness Begins tour kicks off on Aug. 7 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami and concludes two months later on Oct. 20 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Jonas Brothers announce their first new album in ten years ‘Happiness Begins’

Can you believe it’s been ten years since the Jonas Brothers dropped their last studio album? Well, it looks like things are about to change for the group and their dedicated fan base. On Monday (April 22), the trio announced plans to release their fifth studio album later this summer.

Titled Happiness Begins, the new studio effort is due out June 7. Pre-orders for the new record have yet to be released, but you can join their mailing list on their website for upcoming news and updates.

“After seven years of not working together, living life, and finding ourselves in our own paths we came back to give you our journey in album form,” eldest brother Kevin Jonas wrote on Instagram.

“I’m so excited for you to hear Happiness Begins out June 7th. I have to say out of all the albums we have done together I’m the most proud of this one. I wish I could hand it to you now but you will just have to wait a little bit longer.”

Though they have yet to release a tracklist for the forthcoming album, we can assume that hit singles “Sucker” and “Cool” will be featured on the record.

Happiness Begins is the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times. Following the record’s release, the threesome decided to take a break from the band (and each other) due to some deep rifts.

During the hiatus, Nick Jonas went on to cement himself as a successful solo artist and actor while Joe Jonas has been successfully leading dance-funk outfit DNCE.

Ahead of the album’s early June release, the Jonas Brothers will perform at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on May 1 and appear on Saturday Night Live as the musical guests on May 11 (Emma Thompson will be hosting so it should be good).
