The Jonas Brothers are currently on a headlining world tour in support of their recent LP, Happiness Begins, but many fans were left unhappy Friday night when the group cut their Toronto show short.
The gig, which took place at the Scotiabank Arena, reportedly ended early due to “technical difficulties.”
“Toronto, we’re so sorry we didn’t get to play our last two songs,” the band tweeted after the show. “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!”
It’s common knowledge that artists save the best songs for last during the encore, so the crowd was still sticking around, waiting to hear the band’s top hits like 2008’s “Burnin’ Up” and their latest smash-hit single, “Sucker.” Many took to Twitter to share their frustration, noting that they felt “ghosted” as the band did not take the time to come back on stage and explain what happened, or thank the audience and say goodnight. Others shared that they were pushed out by security before the ending and are demanding refunds.

@Ticketmaster @TMFanSupport @TicketmasterCA I paid almost $600 for 2 tickets and didn’t get to see the full show! We were pushed out of our section by security only being told we need to get out “for our safety”. I want a refund!

You guys could’ve at least made an announcement to let everyone know. Or done it acoustically. We would’ve sang along with you as usual

Really really unfair to the people who were there tonight. You guys could have at least come out and said thank you and bye.

While there has been no official statement about the “technical issues” that occurred, rumors are circulating about either a safety threat or a curfew issue. Nonetheless, the Jonas Brothers went on to play in Toronto on Saturday with an encore.
The trio is slated to perform next at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight, followed by shows in cities like Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Dallas, Denver, and San Franisco this fall. Due to high demand, the tour has been extended through December, wrapping up at Los Angeles’ The Forum on December 14.
