Demi Lovato brings tour to Garden State

On Saturday June 23rd, Demi Lovato’s incredible vocal range filled Holmdel, New Jersey’s open air arena the PNC Bank Arts Center.

Lovato addressed the crowd. “Thank you so much for coming. You guys are amazing. Let me just tell you guys, I love being in Jersey. It is one of my favorite places. You guys are the rowdiest fans.”

The last time Lovato was in New Jersey, she was two months away from hitting rock bottom.

If you follow media reports during the last year, you’ll know that 19 year-old pop princess, Demi Lovato has been through hell and back. Hospitalized in the fall of 2010 for self-harm and substance, Lovato experienced an uphill battle to recovery. She dropped out of the Jonas Brothers Live In Concert World Tour and was fired from her Disney Channel show Sonny With a Chance. The program was renamed So Random, and would focus completely on sketch comedy.

Lovato completed her treatment late January 2011. Since then, Lovato channeled all her attention on her music career, dropping her third studio album Unbroken. Lovato scored her first top ten hit with Skyscraper. She also landed a job only side Britney Spears as a judge on the second season of The X Factor. 

Lovato sang new hits like “Skyscraper,” “Give Your Heart a Break,” and the crowd-pleasing R&B tune “My Love is Like a Star.” The pop star did not disappoint her older fans when she played songs from her Disney days like “Get Back,” “Don’t Forget” and “Catch Me.”

Hot Chelle Rae and Owl City are special guests on the tour.
