Future R&B star The Weeknd and recently stripped-down pop princess Demi Lovato have been announced as headliners of this year's Y100 Jingle Ball, which takes place December 18 at BB&T Center in Sunrise.
Other performers on this year's somewhat more eclectic bill include up-and-coming gay icon Nick Jonas, Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer, EDM DJ and Frodo Baggins lookalike Zedd, and Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo.
Tickets for the longstanding holiday pop concert go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, October 12 via IHeartRadio.com/JingleBall, Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. Capital One cardholders are eligible for tour-sponsor pre-sale tickets, which go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
As usual, $1 of each ticket sold to the 2015 Jingle Ball event will benefit the youth-focused Ryan Seacrest Foundation. For more information and full lineup, visit Y100.com.
