The Jonas Brothers brought their Happiness Begins Tour to Toronto on Friday, but the show’s abrupt ending led many fans to feel cheated.
According to numerous posts on social media, fans were enjoying the group’s concert at Toronto’s Scotiabank Centre when the show abruptly ended. After Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas left the stage, fans cheered for an encore… which never came.
Throughout the group’s ongoing reunion tour, the Jonas Brothers have typically closed out each show with a medley of “Burnin’ Up” and “Sucker”, but that didn’t happen in Toronto. Instead, they simply exited the stage and never came back.
Once the disappointed audience realized the JoBros wouldn’t be returning to the stage to play the band’s fan-favourite closers, security officers began clearing out the arena, pushing the disappointed fans out the door, while some fans in attendance tweeted about hearing rumours of a bomb threat at the show.
Shortly after leaving the stage, the band issued an apology via Twitter. “Toronto we’re so sorry we didn’t get to play our last two songs,” the group tweeted. “Unfortunately there was an unforeseen technical difficulty and our production team advised we end the show. Thank you all for coming out tonight! We love you all so much!”
Some ticked-off Toronto fans, however, don’t appear to have accepted the apology:
However, some members of the audience tweeted that the “technical difficulty” may have been the massive onstage video screen, which appeared to have started coming apart.
