Hollywood recording artist and Disney Channel star Demi Lovato kicks off her North American headline tour this summer and will make a stop at the Orleans Arena on July 18 with American Idol finalist, David Archuleta.
The past year has been a whirlwind for Lovato, starting in June with the debut of her first Disney Channel Original Movie, Camp Rock, followed by the No. 2 debut of her first CD, “Don’t Forget,” a national tour, as well as her starring role in the hit Disney Channel series, Sonny with a Chance. Lovato also costars with Selena Gomez in the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Princess Protection Program.
Lovato recently released a deluxe edition of “Don’t Forget,” which includes two new bonus songs and a DVD of music videos, live footage and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage. Lovato performed on the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars, and also performed her newest single “Don’t Forget” on Ellen. She has sold more than 1.1 million digital downloads of her first three singles, “Get Back,” “La La Land” and “Don’t Forget.” The multi-talented Lovato is also working on new material for her sophomore solo album due in July.

He came to national attention and captured the hearts and imagination of a nation with several show-stopping performances on American Idol.
