The Demi World Tour is the fourth headlining concert tour by American singer Demi Lovato. It is Lovato's second tour in support of her fourth studio album Demi (2013), following The Neon Lights Tour.[1][2] Demi has also announced her tour dates and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in early 2015.[3] The tour was produced and promoted by Live Nation, and sponsored by the Tampax and Always Radiant Collection.[4] The tour took place in the United States and Canada from September 6, 2014 to October 27, 2014, where Christina Perri and MKTO served as opening acts.[5]

Background and development

On May 28, 2014, a video was published on Lovato's YouTube channel with the text "Tomorrow 10:00 am PST" in a fuchsia color fading in on a white background, followed by a link to her website, while a screaming crowd can be heard in the background. The next day, the Demi World Tour was announced along with the North American dates on Lovato's website, as well as a video on her YouTube channel.[6] Christina Perri and American music duo MKTO will serve as opening acts for the North American leg of the tour.[7] Tickets for the tour were made available on June 6, 2014, with the tour set to begin on September 6, 2014. On June 19, 2014, Lovato announced her first-ever date at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.[8] On comparing the show to the "Neon Lights Tour", Lovato has stated, "The Neon Lights Tour was amazing and I had so much fun, but I’m constantly thinking, ‘How can I step up my game and how can I take my shows to the next level?’ so that’s what we’re doing with this tour, I’m changing some of the songs, adding new songs, adding new covers. I just want it to be fun and I want it to be everything that I didn’t get to do with the Neon Lights Tour."[9]

Promotion

On April 28, 2014, Lovato announced a partnership with Shazam, in the planning of European Tour dates. The promotion asked fans to tag the song "Neon Lights" when they heard it on Shazam, and this information would be used to book her European tour dates. It allows fans to play a significant part in where her shows would be played. Regarding the partnership, Shazam's head of music stated "This is a fantastic way for Shazam to help Demi Lovato fans across Europe easily cast their vote to have her play in a city near them."[10] Lovato has made appearances on Late Night with Seth Meyers on June 4, 2014 and Good Morning America as part of their Summer Concert Series on June 6, 2014 to promote the tour.[2]

Critical reception

Early reviews of the tour were positive. Erin Post from Alter The Press! gave a glowing review, stating "To summarize this tour in a sentence: it was anything but original. From her dancers, to the outfit changes, to the stage lighting, she tries to keep the audience wanting more ... this tour is filled with a ton of surprises."[11]
