What songs will Demi Lovato play in concert?
Lovato is notoriously consistent with her setlist. She seldom plays covers, if any, and stays to a rather strict assortment of tracks throughout her tour. The latest offering has Lovato closing with the power rock ballad “Give Your heart a Break.” It is her huge single from her 2011 breakthrough release, Unbroken.
Interestingly, Lovato plays the preceding single from that same record, “Skyscrapers,” right before the aforementioned closing song. Unbroken is clearly her biggest record, containing her two biggest pop hits to date.
The latest single from her most recent self-titled album, “Neon Lights,” is the undeniable showstopper of the evening. Huge theatrics and laser beams accentuate the track, and Lovato prompts the audience to lift their phones to the sky. It creates a chilling visual effect that marries perfectly with the track and Demi’s powerful voice that runs through the three-minute dance-pop ballad.
She almost always opens the show with her most popular single, “Heart Attack.” It is a massive song, and the star stresses the importance of opening a show well. It may hurt pacing to open the show with the biggest song of the evening, but Lovato pulls it off every night by keeping the energy tight and not providing a lull with a string of mid-set ballads.
The setlist below is a fairly reliable look at what the coming nights will hold on Lovato’s Neon Lights Tour.

How long is a Demi Lovato concert?
Being a dance-pop show, the length rarely spirals out of control. Lovato fills up a solid 90-minute set by briskly running through one huge hook after the other. She rarely lingers for much communication with the audience, aside from cheering them on for more and recalling what a happy place she is in emotionally after the tumultuous last few years plagued by physical and emotional issues.
Who is opening the Neon Lights Tour?
Lovato has a number of upcoming artists accompanying her on the 2014 Neon Lights Tour in support of her new record simply entitled, Demi.
Cher Lloyd is arguably the most popular of her opening artists. Lloyd’s own sophomore record Sorry I’m Late is set for release in the summer of 2014. She has also recruited British girl group Little Mix to add their own unique fervor to the show. They have a strong punk rock leaning that works well with the ‘rebel girl’ authenticity of Lovato’s own sound.
Equally endearing pop girl group Fifth Harmony will complement Little Mix on alternative dates. No matter where you end up, you will get a taste of a rambunctious modern pop girl group.
Cole Plante, Los Angeles native DJ and producer, rounds out the opening bands as the act with a little something for everyone. His blend of post-dubstep and dance sensibilities fits the bill well. All the opening acts play for roughly 30 minutes, and not all four are appearing on every date of the tour. Confirm on the official website whether your favorite opening act will be in tow when the tour hits your city.
Demi Lovato is an actress. Does that play out on stage?
Having a strong background in acting, Demi Lovato has this natural stage presence. Her recent controversy in the media has blurred the line between what is an act and what is reality. On stage, she has this vulnerability that people instantly relate to. But you do get the sense that it is all exaggerated and she is simultaneously playing a character. The theatrics, including the video of her going to rehab accompanied by loud dramatic music, helps to set the stage that this is a real person before you. It is a surprisingly imitate choice. But her stage presence is so powerful, and she does not particularly talk that much, you get the impression that she is also an inhuman superstar. The juxtaposition works brilliantly.

Specifically, Patrick Confrey handles Lovato’s account withing the agency and can be contacted at email@example.com, though because of his busy schedule and wide number of clients in the music industry and not, specify the exact client and media needs when reaching out.

“There was no choreography and only one costume change but you don’t need shiny distractions when you can belt out songs like Demi and connect with the crowd on such an emotional level. LED lights laced the stage and a giant screen showed beautiful projections from the diva’s career. It’s just that they were used to accentuate the experience rather than to divert your attention from vocal shortcomings.” – Mike Wass of Idolator
“To those who grew up listening to Lovato’s X Factor co-star, Britney Spears, the younger starlet appears takes a cue from her pop icon superior. The one notable difference: Lovato has a voice that can silence even the harshest of critics. Something not often found in her peers.” – Sophia Schillaci of The Hollywood Reporter
Her concert felt like an intense therapy session, almost as if she’s working through her personal struggles in a most public way. She flung herself onstage, bending over through accentuated notes or kicking her head back with passionate force. – Brenna Rushing of The Dallas News
