Champs To Host Jonas Brothers Concert After Party

The Jonas Brothers and Champs go together like birds of a feather.

After the Jonas Brothers perform at the Bryce Jordan Center tonight, there will be an after party at Champs Downtown, where the boy band famously made a stop following a thrilling overtime win during the #BarstoolBestBar contest.

Tour opener Jordan McGraw, as well as a special guest DJ, will perform.

LineLeap also posted on Instagram that “We can’t wait to welcome @joejonas back to Champs!,” but Champs didn’t confirm whether he or his brothers would attend.

The bar closed at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Manager Dante Lucchesi said it’s set to reopen around 6 or 7 tonight with a $10 cover.

As of 4 p.m., the LineLeap price was set at $50 for the night. While that might seem like a steep rate to get in, it might come in handy. Last year before the Jonas Brothers showed up for a surprise show at Champs, the line stretched around Beaver Ave. Underagers and those unlucky enough to get in were left to enjoy the show from outside on Allen Street.

“No challenge you encounter in college will come close to the obstacles you overcame to get there. However, that drive to do things your own way and disregard for what’s seen as ‘normal’ or ‘expected’ will carry on.”
