Tour Review | JONAS BROTHERS: HAPPINESS BEGINS TOUR 2019 | American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL – 8/7/19

img_0604

First things first . . . HOLY SHIT the Jonas Brothers still know how to put on an incredible show. The whole thing was high energy from the moment they took the stage!!

I just want to give a little backstory to my attending this show. 10 years ago, I took my niece to her first concert here in South Florida. She was 5 and she was decked out in a Jonas Brothers t-shirt, Jonas Brothers press-on nails and Jonas Brothers sandals. You guessed correctly, her first concert ever (at 5 because I’m the coolest aunt ever) was the Jonas Brothers. When the guys announced that they were getting back together, I knew I was going to have to sell a kidney to get tickets for the niece to see them again, almost exactly 10 years later! & that’s what I did (minus the selling of my kidney on the black market lol).

I also want to state that the marketing team for the Jonas Brothers deserve a raise! Their cryptic posts leading up to the show had fans going nuts trying to figure out the set list and what surprises would be coming next. The intrigue for all things Jonas has been heavy for months now and that is extremely good for the brand. 😉

The show started at about 7:45 with Jordan McGraw, who played a pretty short set. Bebe Rexha came out next and played her hits, which got the crowd pumped up even more for the guys.

While the crew was setting up the main stage, the crowd started SCREAMING and everyone was turned towards the back of the arena. The Jonas fam all walked in and grabbed seats in the VIP Section, but you would’ve thought the guys had walked out! It was really nice to see a packed arena mostly comprised of young girls all cheering for the guy’s wives, daughters, family and friends rather than hating on them for changing their relationship status haha. Kevin’s daughters must’ve thought it was the coolest thing ever!

Anyway, the guys came on at about 9:30pm and it was absolutely insane. They had the perfect mix of old hits sprinkled with new songs off of their Happiness Begins album. There was a mini stage set up in the back of the arena, in the VIP section, so every seat in the arena was a good one. Whether you were in the back sections or the front, you got a chance to see the guys just a little bit closer than you would with just a regular end-stage setup. The music was loud, the vocals were on-point and the whole production was very well thought out and put together. You can tell that a lot of preparation went into this tour and everything was executed perfectly. My only wish is that is was being filmed! Who knows, with all the surprises they’ve had for everyone lately, maybe it was. The show ended at about 11:20pm.

At one point towards the end of the show, the guys brought out Sebastian Yatra, Natti Natasha and surprised everyone by bringing out Daddy Yankee for a special performance of “Runaway”. Between special guests, confetti canons, pyro, fireworks and those silly inflatable dancing creatures, the show was just a party from start to finish. Even outside of the arena was decorated with balloons and made it feel like a party despite the heat and humidity haha. There were also little photo op areas throughout the hallways of the arena.

I also want to point out that I’ve been to A LOT of concerts, and this one might be at the top as far as high-energy is concerned. I mean that sincerely. The crowd was jumping and screaming and singing the words back to the guys the entire time and all I kept thinking about was their documentary, where Kevin asked if anyone would care that they were getting the band back together. After seeing the first show of the Happiness Begins Tour last night here in Miami, I hope that question has been answered for him and erased any doubts they might’ve had.  It’s obvious that the fans are here to stay!

I HIGHLY recommend checking this show out if you get the chance. The tickets are a big pricey, but they’re honestly worth it. A huge congratulations goes out to the guys on the success of their first show back and well wishes for the rest of the tour!

JONAS BROTHERS Documentary ‘Chasing Happiness’ Set to Premiere on Amazon Prime June 4th | Watch the Trailer!

Everything’s been coming up Jonas lately, hasn’t it?? Since the boys men announced their reunion, they’ve released two new songs, an upcoming album, their upcoming Happiness Begins Tour and now we’ll get to watch how everything played out in their new documentary ‘Chasing Happiness,’ which is set to premiere on Amazon Prime on June 4th.

I’ve been hearing about this documentary for weeks now and I’m stoked that we finally have a premiere date! The film promises never-before-seen footage of Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, starting with their early days growing up in New Jersey in a family struggling to make ends meet. It follows them to their heights of stardom — and the events surrounding their 2013 breakup. “Chasing Happiness” also shows the brothers rebuilding their relationships as siblings and band mates, leading to their first new album since 2009.

Jonas Brothers was the first concert I ever took my niece to – about ten years ago – so there’s a little bit of sentimental value over their comeback. We’ll be at their show here in Miami to relive that magic! How about you? Will you be making it out to any of their shows? Are you as excited as we are to watch the documentary??

Check out the trailer for ‘Chasing Happiness’ below:

Movie Review by Kristin: BAYWATCH | #BeBaywatch #Baywatch

IMG_8624

What’s up, beaches??? Sorry, I just had to…

I got to see a screening of BAYWATCH last night here in Miami and, I have to admit, it was a bit better than I expected!

Now, I used to watch the BAYWATCH TV show back in the 90s, so my initial thought was Oh no, this is most definitely going to flop; It’s going to have cheesy moments of reflection that will kill the funny, etc. I can’t sit here and say that it was the best movie I’ve seen in years, but comedy-wise it ranks pretty high on my list.

SYNOPSIS: Devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchanan butts heads with a brash new recruit. Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay. 

Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have amazing comedic chemistry throughout the entire film. Every scene they were in together had me laughing hysterically. Especially because Mitch (Dwayne Johnson) refused to say Brody’s (Zac Efron) name and, instead, opted for any boyband name he could think of.

The storyline was mildly interesting. The “team” takes matters into their own hands when Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) threatens their bay by selling drugs and ruthlessly killing whoever gets in her way. Honestly, I probably could’ve done without the dragged out dramatic storyline, but it did tie in with what the team was trying to accomplish, so I guess it worked in that respect.

I know many people are trying to find out if this movie is acceptable for the little ones to watch. My 12-year-old niece came with me and it wasn’t all that bad BUT there are a ton of dirty conversations, an incident with someone’s junk getting stuck between two wooden slats from a beach chair, and a moment where a dead man’s penis is definitely front and center. The scenes are definitely funny, but if you don’t want your child seeing a penis on-screen, definitely be on alert during the scene at the morgue. You’re welcome!

Overall, I thought it was a decent movie. Like I said, not my favorite movie of all time, but I think it’s definitely worth a viewing. Try to remember that they’re sort of spoofing the TV show, so a few of the action scenes are a bit far-fetched, but the chemistry between the cast and the comedic timing of everyone involved is what makes this movie worth seeing.

 

 

You can catch BAYWATCH in theaters May 25!
