Two former Disney stars joined together to light up the stage in downtown Buffalo Sunday night. Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are hosting the “Honda Civic: Future Now Tour” this summer, performing all across the country. When Jonas decided it was time to move on from the band he formed with his two brothers, he found an opportunity through solo music. Now, the Camp Rock stars have climbed their way to the top of the charts. Lovato and Jonas put their Disney days in the rear view mirror, and are captivating the world with their hottest hits.
The show began when the house lights faded to black, and a giant countdown graced the stage. The nearly sold out crowd was cheering on its feet. Nick Jonas emerged to the floor, kicking the show off with “Levels.” Jonas rocked out to more tunes off his latest album, “Last Year Was Complicated,” including “Chains,” “Jealous,” and “Chainsaw.”
Jonas left the stage after his first act and the lights turned low again. Suddenly, a platform rose from the floor and Demi Lovato began her set with an energetic rendition of “Confident,” the naming single of her latest album. Lovato continued to wow the audience with older hits like “Heart Attack,” “Neon Lights,” and “Fix A Heart.” She then introduced her newest single “Body Say,” which was written not long ago. Lovato explained the song was not meant to be released until a later date, but she felt there was no better time than now.
Jonas and Lovato then performed a duet of “Close,” one of this summer’s biggest radio hits. The two then rotated sets, performing some of their most popular songs individually. Jonas joined Lovato again on piano, while she belted her recent ballad “Stone Cold.” This might have been the highlight of the night. Lovato closed the show with “Skyscraper” and “Cool For The Summer,” leaving the crowd wanting more.
If you are looking for a concert to attend this summer, I highly recommend this one. You do not have to be a huge Lovato or Jonas fan to appreciate their incredible talents.
“Last Year Was Complicated” and “Confident” can both be found on Spotify.
