Demi Lovato announces the dates of her Holy Fvck tour

Demi Lovato’s career trajectory from Disney Channel star to mainstream pop success has certainly been an interesting one. Whenever you think you’ve figured out Lovato, they seem to go against the expectations placed on them.

For example, which pop star hosts a TV show about aliens? That’s exactly what Lovato did with her Peacock series, Unidentified with Demi Lovato.

But ultimately, they have always been a musical force to be reckoned with. While there’s often negativity associated with the Disney-Channel-to-pop-star pipeline, there’s no denying that Lovato has some of the most powerful pipes in pop music today. Beyond that, they have become activists and advocates for several causes, most recently their LGBTQ+ activism.

Last year, Lovato released her seventh album, Dance with the devil… the art of starting overwhich peaked at number two on the Billboard 200. Despite the new music, no tour has been announced to accompany it.

That changed earlier this week, when Lovato announced Saint-Fvcktheir eighth studio album, due out August 19. Also in the works: a 32-date tour that kicks off August 13 and takes Lovato across the North and South America. The tour will stop in South Florida on October 30 at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. Opening the show is the hard-rock trio Dead Sara.
“I’m so excited to be back on the road after four years without touring, and even more so since touring South America,” Lovato said in a statement. “We work so hard to put on an amazing show for all of my fans, and I can’t wait to see them in person to celebrate this new music.”

As for what new music fans can expect, Saint-Fvck promises to be rooted in Lovato’s rock and pop-punk roots. (Pop-punk is enjoying a resurgence lately, thanks to artists like Olivia Rodrigo and Machine Gun Kelly.)
