It’s a strength she’ll also flexing next Thursday on Idol, when she serves up the first televised performance of new single ‘Dance Again’.

    Awesome news, go Mama.

  2. olb April 30, 2012

    I’m so there when she comes to New York City!!! J.Lo is Long overdue for a world tour.

  3. Licious April 30, 2012

    YAY!!!!!!! 😀

  4. Mad-On-Her April 30, 2012

    OK let’s be serious, there are not enough J Lo fans out there to be filling arenas. I think Miss Lopez needs to take a seat, and judging by this news there will be PLENTY of seats for her to choose from – with ALL those empties she has ahead of her.
    Don’t get me wrong, I like J Lo. But for such a hard working woman it bugs me that her music is so… lazy.
    I would love to watch a s** tape of her and Enrique though. This is the only potentially good thing that could come from this tour.

  5. bash April 30, 2012

    I see Beyonce’s dancer to my right of JLo…lolz

  6. KAT DELUNA FAN April 30, 2012

  7. Bhive April 30, 2012

  8. WILD DEBUTANTE April 30, 2012

    How odd that this her 1st arena tour after all these years, but I hope its a success.

    I love J-Lo she’s a talented performer, if only she had the vocal chops of Selena whom she portrayed in the film and could do covers of her songs OMG I would get my LIFE!!

  9. virtuoso intellect April 30, 2012

    smh @ONYX what is with u and stanning for all these nocalists; madonna, jlo, rihanna. does artifice turn u on?

  10. Onyx April 30, 2012

    @virtuoso intellect
    Your sick, i can make a similar question to you.

    what is with u and stanning for a woman who faked her pregnancy?

  11. virtuoso intellect April 30, 2012

    @Onyx

    my fav did not fake her prergnancy but damn u tried it. i mention nocalists and u reach for a rumour, really? what a low blow. if that’s all u got then my question is much validated. u have a complex but i still love u

  12. Onyx April 30, 2012

    @virtuoso intellect
    You need a Doctor.

  13. Teyah April 30, 2012

    LOL she’s in her 40s, LOVE? is her 7th album and she finally has her own tour. How embarassing!

  14. Jay Jay April 30, 2012

    Her first arena tour? She’s been out since the 90’s and yet people give Ciara a hard time

  15. YOOSONDALOOSE April 30, 2012

    Go Jlo, finally, she will own the stage, she is a very good live performer, hope she adds more dates!

  16. pat April 30, 2012

    wow…didnt know Jlo could fill up arenas……my bad

  17. virtuoso intellect April 30, 2012

    @Onyx

    aww hun, dont be salty now … it’s not s*** at all 😉

  18. CH April 30, 2012

    I think she can probably fill up an arena people may not buy her cds but I think they will show up to see her do what she does best which is dance! I might go, but then again I am not an Enrique fan.

  19. cocodior3069 April 30, 2012

    Hmmmm If i was her i would have stuck to 5000 and 10000 seats. I hope she does not embrass her brand if these tickets don’t sell. Obviousley there must have been a reason why it took her 13 years to do a TOUR! Maybe the finally made a computer that can help her sound good live! Good luck J.Lo

  20. Christobal April 30, 2012

    She’s already sold out huge arena’s when she toured with Marc and she was pregnant! Get your facts straight! The only reason she hasn’t toured before is because she decided to take movie roles instead.

  21. AZ April 30, 2012

    This is NOT JLo’s tour…. she and Enrique will co headline just like CIara and Jay Z co headlined a tour but Ciara was really the opening act….

    Enrique is the only one that is an arena artist…. not Jlo…. check wikipedia….. this is an extension of Enrique’s ongoing summer tour… Jlo is opening for him

    watch to see which is the last performer of the night…. it will be Enque closing each show …. stilll a good look for Jlo though…. she is opening for an arena artist.

  22. therealhonesttruth April 30, 2012

    not only does she lip sync but she wears the same costume for every performances. Get over the glittery body suits. Your 40 years old

  23. Agus V April 30, 2012

    SHE IS THE QUEEN!!!

  24. Angel d April 30, 2012

    Jlo boo…. bring ur show to tampa, or orlando mami lol! Im happy for ya ass 🙂 now for these chicken ass haters! who came to talk bull s***, suck 56 million albums and no tour! She was doing something right! Dont ya think? Tour the world boo and do u jlo 🙂

  25. HD live April 30, 2012

    finally! she have her own tour

  26. number1k9 May 1, 2012

    I’m sure if Jennifer wanted a worldwide tour she easily could have done one after her ‘J.o’ album was released in 2001, but she chose to take on movie roles instead, which in return prob earned her just as much money if not more back in that day. Now, you have to tour to make money from music…. then albums were still selling decently.

    So is it odd this is her first world wide tour… YES. But after you remember how busy she was during her hey-day/peak… She had the number 1 ALBUM and MOVIE in the U.S. at the same time! Even your fave’s cannot conquer that feat. She also had what I believe was the first ever REMIX album to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart… Only since followed by Biebs. SO don’t downgrade her feats as if she was sitting on her ass when she could have been touring.

    YEEEEEES! @ number1k9, get these h*** togetha!
