IT’S BEEN A busy old week for Joe Jonas.
When he wasn’t flat out pulling pints at the Guinness Storehouse or becoming one with our capital’s deer community, his group, DNCE, were busy showing their support for … ehm… the RA.
DNCE performed as a support for Bruno Mars in Marlay Park last night, and concert-goers were fairly stunned to hear the words ‘Up the RA’ bellowed from the stage.
We know,we know; it’s a lot to take in of a Friday afternoon.
Confusion firstly arose as to which member of DNCE actually uttered the words.
Was it Joe? Was it Cole? And where did Jack and JinJoo fit in?
And then it looked like no one cared who actually said, they were just bloody delighted it was said at all.
There’s no video evidence, but at the start of this clip it sounds like two girls are discussing whether someone said “Up the RA”.

Although there was no footage of it… There were a lot of witnesses. We mean, take a look at this.
