From a press release:

The Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum-selling Jonas Brothers are going back on the road after the smash success of their 2019 Happiness Begins Tour sold over 1.2 million tickets and grossed over $120 million dollars. This time, the pop rockers are guaranteeing happiness is back and that fans are going to remember this summer with their 2021 Remember This Tour featuring multi-platinum country music superstar Kelsea Ballerini.

“We couldn’t be more excited to officially announce we are going on tour this summer and bringing our friend Kelsea Ballerini! If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that we need to remember the important moments in our lives. We hope these shows will be special moments for our fans, our friends, and our families, and we can’t wait to see all their faces soon!” the brothers said.

Produced by Live Nation, the 44-date tour will kick off in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug. 20, stopping at major cities across the country like Denver, Nashville, Atlanta, Tampa, and Dallas before wrapping up in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 27.

It stops at Hersheypark Stadium (100 West Hersheypark Dr., Hershey) on Friday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. The brothers previously performed at the stadium on Aug. 31, 2019.

The new tour will also hit several locations in New York, including the Darien Lake Amphitheatre in Darien Center on Saturday, Sept. 25; St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheatre at Lakeview in Syracuse on Sunday, Sept. 26; Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs on Tuesday, Sept. 28; and Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh on Saturday, Oct. 2, as well as two dates in New Jersey – the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel on Tuesday, Oct. 5 and the BB&T Pavilion in Camden on Thursday, Oct. 7.

Leading up to these shows, the Jonas Brothers will kick off a partnership with NBCUniversal that is inspired by the themes and anticipation of the Tokyo Olympics, featuring a unique activation surrounding the band’s upcoming single “Remember This.” They will debut the new song on the first night of the U.S. Track & Field Trials on Friday, June 18 between 10 p.m.-11 p.m. on NBC, roughly one month before the Tokyo Olympics begin on July 23. “Remember This” will tell an Olympic-inspired story with athlete imagery and will feature a special message from the Jonas Brothers.

In addition to the debut of the song, the trio will make their first-ever performance of “Remember This” within NBCUniversal’s coverage of the games this summer. The in-games version of the single will include new lyrics inspired by the Tokyo Olympics and Team USA.

The partnership surrounding “Remember This” complements the premiere of “Olympic Dreams featuring the Jonas Brothers,” which was announced earlier this week and will air two days before the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics on July 21 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

The Jonas Brothers took the world by storm in 2019 with the surprise release of their critically acclaimed and widely successful single “Sucker” following a six-year hiatus. The triple-platinum single debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, becoming the first No. 1 for the band and the first No. 1 debut from a group this century. The New Jersey natives went on to release “Chasing Happiness,” an Amazon original film documenting the brothers’ rise and return to music before going on to deliver their third No. 1 album debut with the release of their platinum-selling record “Happiness Begins” (Republic Records). The band continued to soar with their sold-out Happiness Begins Tour, with over 1.2 million tickets sold.

What’s more, the album garnered the band a bevy of awards, including three awards for Top Duo/Group, Top Radio Songs Artist, and Top Radio Song for “Sucker” at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, a 2019 MTV VMA for Best Pop Video, Best Duo/Group at the 2020 iHeart Music Awards, and two Teen Choice Awards (including their prestigious Decade Award), as well as numerous American Music Award nominations, a coveted Grammy nomination, and more.

Most recently, the band released a new Amazon original documentary entitled “Happiness Continues” that captured the band’s live concert experience.

Kelsea Ballerini is recognized as one of the most influential women in country music today and has consistently made history since the start of her career. Following the release of her first studio album “The First Time” in 2015, she became the only female country artist to hit No. 1 with the first three consecutive singles from a debut album. She has platinum and gold album certifications, a career total of 11 gold and platinum singles certifications, and has accumulated total streams exceeding three billion to date.

The 27-year-old singer/songwriter has garnered two Grammy nominations, won two ACM Awards, and has also received multiple career nominations from the ACM Awards, American Music Awards, CMA Awards, CMT Awards, and the People’s Choice Awards. Most recently, she received a 2021 ACM Award nomination for Female Artist of the Year and was also welcomed as the Grand Ole Opry’s youngest current member.

Ballerini released two acclaimed albums in lockdown last year. In March of 2020, she debuted her self-titled third album “Kelsea” (Black River Entertainment). Her most personal effort to date, the album was met with critical praise, including from NPR, who opined, “Kelsea Ballerini is definitely one of the most influential women in country right now … she’s defining the sound of the genre.” The debut single from the album, “Homecoming Queen,” which the New York Times deemed “excellent,” was certified platinum, marking her fastest single to achieve this milestone yet. Her third single from the album, “Hole in the Bottle,” recently reached gold RIAA certification and earned her sixth No. 1. Her latest single from the release, “Half of My Hometown,” features a special guest vocal appearance from eight-time Entertainer of the Year and fellow East Tennessee songwriter/superstar Kenny Chesney.

While under quarantine, Ballerini created the second half of that story, “Ballerini.” On this album, she carefully deconstructed each song from the “Kelsea” album and rerecorded everything with minimal accompaniment. Co-producing the release, she showed another side of herself with this reimagined take, highlighting the lyrical power of “Kelsea” as she stripped all of the songs down to the bare essentials.
