UPDATED: July 15, 2022, August 23, 2022
GRAMMY®-nominated superstar Demi Lovato has announced a North American tour. The trek is in support of their forthcoming studio album HOLY FVCK which arrives on August 19. The record is a more rock-focused outing, a departure from Lovato’s storied pop music. The trek kicks off on September 22 at Hard Rock Live Sacramento in California and wraps up on November 6 at The Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Texas. The tour will make stops in San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and more.
Special guests for the run will be DEAD SARA and Royal & the Serpent on select dates.
Royal and the Serpent are featured on the track “EAT ME” from Lovato’s upcoming LP.
Before the tour begins, Lovato will be performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this Thursday, June 9. They are also slated to perform at the Illinois State Fair and the Iowa State Fair on August 13 and August 14 respectively. Due to overwhelming demand, a second show has been added at the Beacon Theatre on October 18.
Tickets and VIP packages go on sale starting Friday, August 26 at 10am at demilovato.com. Citi is the official card of the HOLY FVCK tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 7 at 12pm local time until Thursday, June 9 at 10pm local time through the Citi Entertainment program.

“I’m so excited to get back on the road after four years without touring, and even longer since I’ve toured in South America,” said Demi Lovato. “We’re working so hard to deliver an incredible show for all my fans and I can’t wait to see them in person to celebrate this new music.”
Due to the rock ‘n’ roll nature of their upcoming album, Lovato has enlisted the talents of hard rock guitarist Nita Strauss. Strauss announced her departure from Alice Cooper‘s touring band on July 11 and postponed all of her previously scheduled solo tour dates. In a social media post, she stated, “There is no drama whatsoever and my touring year is still very full – in fact, I’m on a flight straight into the next adventure as I post this, and I’ll be on stage again much sooner than you think!” On July 14, Strauss joined Lovato for a performance of their new single “Substance” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
With seven studio albums under their belt, all of which debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 and four boasting over one billion streams on Spotify, Demi elevates their signature sound with their upcoming eighth studio album, HOLY FVCK. The album is a sonic journey grounded in Demi’s rock and pop-punk roots and illustrates an earnest yet tongue-in-cheek retrospective of their life experiences.
Lovato has been honored with numerous awards and accolades over their career, including an MTV Video Music Award, 14 Teen Choice Awards, five People’s Choice Awards, an ALMA Award, a Latin American Music Award and a GLAAD Vanguard Award for their services to LGBTQ+ activism. They have also received two GRAMMY® Award nominations, four Billboard Music Awards nominations and three Brit Award nominations for their work.
