For a pop star, Demi Lovato is about as raw as they come. Sure, the singer has a knack for peppy, feel-good tunes like "Cool For the Summer." But, she's also candid about the ups and downs of her personal life. The star — who has openly faced down anorexia and bulimia, and has bipolar disorder — is an outspoken advocate for body confidence and mental health alike. So, it's not a complete surprise that Lovato's 2018 tour will focus on more than just dance tracks (though those will be there, too!)
On a January 24 appearance on Good Morning America, the chanteuse opened up about her plans for the upcoming tour. "I think that it's important that I use my voice for more than just singing and I just know how important it is to use my platform to help others and to share my story in hopes it inspires people to either get into recovery or better themselves," she said. "Whatever it is, I just want people to know they're not alone and I'm here for them."
Lovato is now a co-owner of the wellness and recovery organization Comprehensive Assistance Support Treatment Centers, and she plans to wrangle the pros affiliated with the centers to provide group therapy for her fans. "[It's] basically like a therapy session before the concerts and we have speakers from all over and we're also helping out with different charities from around the country, so it'll be incredible and a very moving and inspiring experience," Lovato told GMA anchors.
She added: "My whole life, you know, is about giving back and I think it's really important that I continue to do this while I'm on tour." We love this innovative, inspiring idea — talk about a feel-good concert!
