The tour will kick off on February 9 in Vancouver, making stops in cities like Atlanta, Tampa, Charlotte and Toronto before wrapping up March 30 in Indianapolis. Tickets go on sale Saturday.
The singer will be joined by opening acts Fifth Harmony (who competed on last season’s “X Factor” with Demi judging), and Little Mix, stars of the U.K.’s “X Factor.”
“I think it’s going to be so much fun,” Demi told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Monday morning (September 30). “There’s nothing better than woman empowerment and having an all-girl tour. What’s ironic is we are all from ‘The X Factor,’ and that wasn’t even planned — it just kind of happened that way. I helped put Fifth Harmony together and watching them now, they’re going to be opening for me, it’s so awesome.”
Demi also revealed one more surprise: The name of her tour also happens to be the title of her next single, “Neon Lights,” from her upcoming self-titled album. “It also fits; it’s like a party tour,” she said. “When I see that [title], I think big party.”
Earlier this year, she opened up to MTV News about her album release. “I’m in a really good place. I’m grateful for everything,” Lovato said. “I’m also at a place where I’m in acceptance of every single heartbreak that I’ve had. I hold no resentments towards anyone, even towards the people that inspire the really emotional songs. I’m over it and now I just want to share my experience with people.”
In addition to her upcoming tour and her current stint on “X Factor,” this week the singer will kick off her recurring role on “Glee.” She’ll play Naya Rivera’s love interest, Dani, a NYC artist who befriends both Santana (Naya) and Rachel (Lea Michele). Last week an image was released from her upcoming appearance. It featured her in a band with the ladies, as well as Chris Colfer and fellow “Glee” newbie, Adam Lambert.
