Pop singer Demi Lovato is returning to St. Paul for a concert this spring, the Pioneer Press reports.

Lovato, an actress-turned-singer and judge on Fox Television's "The X-Factor," will play the Xcel Energy Center March 18. Little Mix and Fifth Harmony are her opening acts.

Tickets, which are $65, $49.50, $39.50 and $29.50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.

Lovato revealed her tour plans in a phone call to Los Angeles radio host Ryan Seacrest Monday morning. The singer's "Neon Lights" tour kicks off Feb. 9 in Vancouver and wraps up March 30 in Indianapolis.

The singer, 21, played the Minnesota State Fair in 2012 and drew 5,500 fans, the Pioneer Press says.

Lovato was one of the "X-Factor" judges who heaped praise upon Winona singer Tim Olstad after his performance last week of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years."

“First of all I had the chills when you sang, and I don’t get those very often here,” Lovato told Olstad.

Lovato's acting credits including "Barney and Friends," "Camp Rock" and "Sonny With a Chance," and as a performer, she's released four albums that spawned such hits as "Skyscraper," "Give Your Heart a Break" and "Heart."
