Nick Jonas Signs on As Demi Lovato Tour Musical and Creative Director

With plenty of time on his hands since the Jonas Brothers broke up, Nick Jonas has signed on as the musical and creative director for Demi Lovato’s Neon Lights tour.

“I’m overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging,” he told 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.”

“Demi and I have the same manager,” Jonas explained about how he secured the gig. “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.” Nick signed on around the time the band broke up.

“I’ve been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks,” he said. “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.'”

Once the tour gets off the ground, Nick will get to work on his solo album. Demi Lovato hits the road with Little Mix and Fifth Harmony beginning on February 9 in Vancouver, BC.
