Last night, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas‘ Future Now Tour hit the ACC and I couldn’t have been more excited to be there!
Jonas opened up the first half of the show with “Levels”. I haven’t seen Nick live since the Jonas Brothers days – man oh man, has he ever grown up! His voice, his looks, and his overall attitude have matured immensely. It’s hard to believe he’s the same kid! Although the curly haired, Disney movie days are over, Nick definitely hasn’t forgotten his roots. He mentioned that he met Demi years ago in Toronto on the set of Camp Rock and they’ve been the best of friends ever since.
Playing mostly new songs off his latest album, Last Year Was Complicated such as “Bacon”, “Champagne Problems”, and “Touch”, and a few from his last album including “Chains” (which was definitely a crowd favourite) and “Jealous”, Jonas did not disappoint. Fans were ecstatic when he played “A Little Bit Longer”, a song that wasn’t on the original setlist (yeah, I had a peak!). This is a really emotional and important song for Nick. It’s about his struggle with type 1 diabetes and it was actually written here in the Six. I’d say it’s definitely a tune that most Jonas fans keep near and dear to their hearts.
Demi opened up her set with “Confident”. This girl’s vocals are incredible – she is an absolute pleasure to watch perform! After listening to her actually sing on stage and nail a wide range of notes, there’s no denying her raw, natural talent. Her performance is flawless, and she makes it look so easy!
Demi sang lots of fan favourites, old and new, including “Cool For The Summer”, “Sky Scraper”, “Heart Attack’, and “Fix A Heart”. With a fourteen year career, and five albums under her belt, the singer now has a large pool of songs to choose from for the live show, and I think she did a great job with her selections!
Before the night came to a close, Demi and Nick performed a few hits together including Lovato’s “Stone Cold” and Jonas’ “Close”. It was so great watching the two sing together. I’ll admit, I was hoping for a mini Camp Rock mashup, but I’m over it!
Overall, I’d say my only complaint about this tour is how short it felt. There were tons of other songs that I felt should have been played but didn’t quite make it onto the setlist. However, cramming all your favourite songs into an hour and a half can be difficult for just one artist, let alone two!
I had a blast at the Future Now Tour! If you were there, we’d love to here your thoughts! Tweet us @bestfan or leave a comment in the section below :).
