Demi Lovato's career trajectory from Disney Channel star to mainstream pop success has certainly been interesting. Every time you think you've got Lovato figured out, they seem to buck the expectations placed on them.

Like, what pop star hosts a TV show about extraterrestrials? Lovato did just that with their Peacock series, Unidentified With Demi Lovato.

But ultimately, they've always been a force to reckon with musically. While there's often negativity associated with the Disney-Channel-to-pop-star pipeline, there's no denying Lovato has some of the most powerful pipes in pop music today. Beyond that, they've become an activist and advocate for several causes, most recently their LGBTQ+ activism.

Last year, Lovato dropped their seventh album, Dancing with the Devil...the Art of Starting Over, which peaked at number two on the Billboard 200. Despite the new music, there was no tour announced to accompany it.

That changed earlier this week, when Lovato announced Holy Fvck, their eighth studio album, set to drop on August 19. Also in the works: a 32-date tour that kicks off on August 13 and takes Lovato through North and South America. The tour will stop in South Florida on October 30 at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. Opening the show is hard-rock trio Dead Sara.
"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," Lovato said in a statement. "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."

As far as what new music fans can expect, Holy Fvck promises to be grounded in Lovato's rock and pop-punk roots. (Pop-punk has been having a resurgence lately, thanks to artists like Olivia Rodrigo and Machine Gun Kelly.)

Presale tickets are on sale for Citi card members through Thursday, June 9, at 10 p.m. The general public can purchase tickets starting Friday, June 10, at 10 a.m.
