Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas reschedule concert at BB&T Center

Pop stars @DemiLovato, @NickJonas reschedule concert to July 1 @TheBBTCenter. Details:

Pop singers Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas will now deliver their Future Now Tour to South Florida a little later.

The Billboard-charting pair, whose concert was originally set for June 24 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, will instead perform at 7 p.m. Friday, July 1, at the same venue.

A spokesperson with the BB&T Center wouldn't give a reason for the makeup date, but says the venue will honor already-purchased tickets. Tickets may also be refunded at the point of purchase.

The last-minute change arrives after Lovato and Jonas released an April 24 joint statement via Twitter canceling a pair of North Carolina concerts in protest over the state's new HB2 law, which bans transgender access to public bathrooms and removes nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people.

Describing HB2 as a "hateful law" in the same statement, Lovato and Jonas say "North Carolina's discriminatory HB2 law is extremely disappointing, and it takes away some of the LGBT community's most basic rights and protections."

The July 1 show at the BB&T Center replaces a pair of concerts scheduled in Raleigh and Charlotte. A June 25 performance at Orlando's Amway Arena was also rescheduled to Saturday, July 2.

Both are busy promoting separate albums (Lovato's "Confident" and Jonas' "Last Year Was Complicated") on their 35-city Future Now Tour. Jonas is also promoting steamy, electronica-punched singles "Close" and "Jealous," while Lovato is still feeling "Cool for the Summer."

Tickets are $25.70-$85.70 via Ticketmaster pay-by-phone (1-800-745-3000) or Ticketmaster.com.
