Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato Together for 2014 Neon Lights Tour
It has been officially announced that Nick Jonas will be joining longtime friend, Demi Lovato, out on the road this year for her 2014 Neon Lights Tour. However, Nick won't be playing, he will actually be working behind the scenes.
His official title is "Musical and Creative Director" for the tour, which will kick off February 9th in Vancouver, British Columbia. "I'm overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging," he tells Rolling Stone. "And then I'm extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I'm building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts."
Nick has been working for a few months preparing all of the details for the shows according to Yahoo. "Demi and I have the same manager," Jonas explains. "I was immediately excited when I was offered the position. The relationship that Demi and I had over eight years really gives me the insight into how to best communicate with her and her team."
"I've been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks," Nick shared from Los Angeles. "The biggest challenge has been just trying to rethink some of the music and see how we could compliment it with lights and video. I sat down with the band and said to them, 'You need to step into this like it's a new gig. None of these arrangements are going to sound like the originals, so you need to have an open mind.'"
Next, Nick wants to continue to focus on his next solo record. "Some of it is done and ready to be released," he says. "I've got a lot of things in the pipeline right now and I'm waiting to release some news about my music and my next steps. It isn't quite locked in yet, but I have started making some music and now it's all about lining up the pieces."
