‘To the person playing the piano at our hotel, thank you’: Nick Jonas recalls hearing their song at PHL hotel lobby  


Jonas Brothers, composed of real-life siblings Nick, Joe, and Kevin, expressed gratitude to a pianist playing their hit song “When You Look Me In The Eyes” at the lobby of the hotel they are staying in Manila. 

“In the hotel lobby, there’s a pianist, playing some music and we heard a familiar song. We realized that actually, it was our song,” said Nick.  

“To the person playing the piano at our hotel, thank you. To our incredible fans here in the Philippines, thank you for making this song one of our most popular [song] in this country,” he added. 

The American boy band brought their “Five Albums. One Night. The World Tour” at the Mall of Asia Arena on Thursday, February 22, 2024. 

The trio started the show with their song “What a Man Gotta Do” and went on to cover almost all of their songs.  

“It’s so good to be back! To be here tonight, to celebrate a nearly 20-year journey,” Nick said. 

“I said Manila! It’s been way too long. We’re so excited for tonight, we’re just getting started,” Joe added. 

Nick, Joe, and Kevin first visited the country in 2012. The Manila concert was the band’s first tour stop for 2024.
