After nearly selling out their initial 40-date comeback tour, the Jonas Brothers are adding shows in more cities across North America — including one in Austin.

That's right, the JoBros are coming to the Frank Erwin Center on Saturday, December 7. The tour also added a Dallas date. In addition to the previously announced show on Wednesday, September 26, the Jonas Brothers will return to the Big D for a second show at the American Airlines Center on Friday, December 6.

The JoBros are touring in support of their new album, Happiness Begins, their first new release since 2009's Lines, Vines, and Trying Times. The tour will perform 63 dates across North America, starting on August 7 in Miami, Florida. In addition to Dallas, the band previously announced dates in Houston on September 26 and San Antonio on September 27.

Originally a product of the Disney Channel, the Jonas Brothers released four albums in as many years from 2006-2009. They have mostly gone their separate ways in the 2010s, with Joe Jonas releasing one solo album and one album with the group DNCE, and Nick Jonas releasing two solo albums and one album with the group Nick Jonas & The Administration.

Joe and Nick have also capitalized on their fame by embarking on relationships with well-known actresses. Joe is married to Sophie Turner, best known as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. Nick married actress Priyanka Chopra, who starred on the ABC series Quantico, in a star-studded wedding in India last year. Oldest brother Kevin starred with his wife, Dani, in a reality TV show on E! called Married to Jonas that lasted two seasons.

The brothers will be joined by special guests Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw on the majority of their tour dates, although Rexha will not appear at any of the Texas concerts. Fans can now pre-order Happiness Begins, which will officially come out on June 7.

Tickets for the new concert dates go on sale to American Airlines AAdvantage Mastercard credit card holders beginning on Thursday, May 16 at 10 am and to the general public beginning Saturday, May 18 at LiveNation.com.
