Lopez, Anthony going on joint tour
EmptyNEW YORK -- Husband-and-wife duo Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will tour together for the first time in the fall, kicking off Sept. 29 in Atlantic City, N.J. The full itinerary will be unveiled next week. Tickets go on sale Aug. 10.
Lopez and Anthony will play their own sets on the Live Nation-produced tour, but will also perform together in English and Spanish. A dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to ING Run for Something Better, a children's fitness and healthy lifestyle program.
"Jennifer has never toured," Anthony told Billboard last week. "I've toured all my life. This is where I can step in and say, 'Oh, my God, this could be fun,' and introduce her to that world. It is something she's always wanted to do, but she's never had the time. And I was offered many more films I never took advantage of because I was always on tour."
Anthony is about to hit the big screen in "El Cantante," a biopic about salsa legend Hector Lavoe. Lopez stars in the film as Lavoe's wife, Nilda. The film's soundtrack, to be released Tuesday, is Anthony's ninth studio album and the first from his new venture with Sony BMG.
