Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas had some lucky fans in Kentucky scrambling for free concert tickets. Ahead of Nick and Demi’s “Future Now” concert at the KFC Yum! Center in Lousiville, Kentucky, the pop music duo took to social media to tease that they had hidden tickets to the show near famous landmarks in the downtown area of the city.
Lovato kicked off the contest by tweeting that she and Jonas were sending fans on “a little scavenger hunt.” Demi advised fans to head downtown to track down the hidden tickets for the show.
Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas alternated posting clues to the locations of the five pairs of hidden tickets on their Twitter accounts. The first clue was a photo of a supersized baseball bat outside of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
Next, Nick tweeted a pic of the gold statue of Michelangelo’s David. The other three locations were revealed in photos taken at Waterfront Park, Louisville Slugger Field, and the Whiskey Row Lofts.
Demi Lovato also asked fans to post photos if they found the tickets. One lucky recipient posted that it was her birthday. Free “Future Now” tickets sound like a pretty sweet birthday gift for any pop music fan.
Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are mid-way through their “Future Now Tour” across North America, which kicked off June 29 in Atlanta. The tour, which ends in mid-September in Inglewood, California, has brought the former Disney Channel superstars back together as Lovato promotes her fifth album, Confident, and Jonas plugs his second post-Jonas Brothers album, Last Year Was Complicated.
Of course, longtime fans remember Nick and Demi working together many years ago on the Disney TV movie Camp Rock. The duo also shared a stage for the infamous Jonas Brothers tour in 2010, which had Demi quitting the tour early after she punched a backup dancer. It wasn’t long after that Demi Lovato went to rehab.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Demi Lovato revealed that she distanced herself from her childhood pal when she was going through her difficult times.
“I distanced myself as I was getting involved with self-destructive things,” Demi said. “After treatment, I had to have some time sober before I wasn’t embarrassed to talk to him. Nick says I sent text messages, but I don’t remember… The first time we saw each other since that tour was my [2012 Los Angeles] concert at The Greek. We caught up right before the show, then performed. It was an emotional reunion — I got one of my best friends back.”
Jonas said after the punching incident, he was mostly worried that his band was going to get sued.
“I mean, it was bad,” he said. “On top of losing a friend, we have seven dates left, it’s a big production, people are expecting to see Demi and that’s not going to happen.”
Demi Lovato said that, unfortunately, she had to go through the bad times in order to appreciate what she has in front of her. Based on the concert ticket giveaway, Demi is now spreading the love to her loyal followers.
Of course, there’s still about two dozen “Future Now” tour dates left, with shows in St. Louis, Denver, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Cleveland, and more. Nick and Demi will also head to Canada for four concert dates in late August before they wrap up in California. Fans who are hoping for future scavenger hunts are likely at the mercy of each city, though. There have been no announcements that the scavenger hunt will be an ongoing promotion, but fans never know what the future may hold for “Future Now.”
