The “American Idol” judge is set to launch a 60-date world tour in South America in June and will be joined by her “Mouth 2 Mouth” duet partner Iglesias. A source close to Lopez told Celebuzz she “is very excited about him joining the tour.”
“This will be a huge tour, complete with a lavish set, full band and team of dancers,” the source added.
While concert promoter AEG has not confirmed all dates, Lopez and Iglesias will reportedly visit the United States, South America, Europe and Asia this summer after this season of “Idol” concludes. The tour will snake through Venezuela, Chile, Argentina and Brazil before returning to the U.S. for a planned second round of production rehearsals with shows beginning here in mid-July.
Though she went on a brief tour with then-husband Marc Anthony in 2007, Lopez is looking at this trek as her first-ever full-on world tour. “I did a little minitour with Marc right when I was pregnant [with twins Max and Emme],” Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres last year. “We just did, like, 20 shows. But I’ve never really done the world tour thing.”
Iglesias was previously set to join Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale Tour tour last year but pulled out just hours after the announcement was made, citing his belief that he was set to be Spears’ co-headliner, not her opening act.
