The teases were true. The Jonas Brothers are coming to Tampa.

A day after teasing tour dates across the country, the reunited JoBros on Wednesday confirmed a huge reunion tour that will kick off in Florida. One of the first dates for the Happiness Begins Tour is Tampa, where Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas will perform at Amalie Arena on Aug. 10. They're bringing Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw.

Tickets to the show are on sale at noon May 10. Click here for details.

The tour marks their first full shows since late 2013, although Tampa got a tiny taste of what it might look like back in 2015, when both Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas's DNCE played the 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball at Amalie Arena. They teamed up for a duet of Feliz Navidad, a partial reunion that nevertheless set fans screaming.
