Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony to Co-Headline Tour




Superstars JENNIFER LOPEZ and MARC ANTHONY will co-headline their first tour together this fall. It is a mega-wattage match-up of some of the most exciting music in the world, and Lopez's first concert tour ever! The multi city tour of the US, Canada and Puerto Rico kicks off September 29 in Atlantic City, and is produced by Live Nation (NYSE:LYV) and sponsored by ING, a global financial services company and the tour's presenting sponsor.

All dates will be announced next week. Tickets go on sale beginning on August 10 and can be found at

Actors, singers, producer, entrepreneurs, songwriters, multi-platinum recording artists and philanthropists: There aren't enough adjectives to describe the accomplishments of Lopez and Anthony. The star power and performing prowess they bring to the stage is unequaled. During the tour, Lopez and Anthony will perform separate sets of their own material and will perform together as well. Each set will include songs in English and Spanish.

$1.00 from every ticket sold on JENNIFER & MARC EN CONCIERTO will benefit the ING Run For Something Better, a kids' fitness program created by ING that aims to reduce childhood obesity by introducing kids to the benefits of running, physical fitness, and healthy lifestyle choices. NALEO (The National Association of Elected and Appointed Latino Officials), and ING's charitable partner for the multi-city tour, will direct the funds into schools with high Latino enrollment.

Jennifer Lopez has sold more than 17 million records worldwide and two of her albums, ON THE 6 (1996) and 2001's J.LO debuted at #l on the Billboard charts. She just released her first Spanish language album, COMO AMA UNA MUJER, her sixth album to date, which nailed the #1 spot on the Billboard Latin Chart and #l0 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart its first week out. The video for her first single, "Que Hiciste", written and co-produced by Anthony, has been in the MTV TRL countdown for weeks. Lopez has starred in an array of box office hits including MONSTER-IN-LAW, THE WEDDING PLANNER and SELENA, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. She stars in EL CANTANTE with Anthony and BORDERTOWN with Antonio Banderas. Both films were produced through Nuyorican, her production company.

New York-born Marc Anthony is the top selling salsa artist of all time, having sold more than ten million albums worldwide. He has won three Latin Grammys, one Grammy and is the top Premio lo Nuestro winner in history, with l6 awards. His live shows are astounding; the New York Times wrote that he "can compete with the greatest pop singers of the 20th century" with "absolute command of the music and the arena." He has managed to balance his music career with a thriving acting career, delivering critically acclaimed performances on Broadway and in film. He is currently starring in EL CANTANTE, a film inspired by the life of Hector Lavoe.

Both Lopez and Anthony are committed to making a difference through various philanthropic endeavors, particularly those that benefit Latino youth. When Live Nation and ING came to them with the ING Run For Something Better program, they were delighted. As part of the kids' fitness program, all concert attendees can also make a donation of $10 at the concert venues; and to recognize their donations, ING will give them a special pair of orange shoelaces to show they are "tied" to supporting kids' fitness. Lopez and Anthony agreed to the inclusion of the orange shoelaces at the concert venues, funds from which will benefit the organization. ING's Orange Laces are also available online at

"When I was a kid, we spent most of our time outside visiting in the neighborhood with friends. This is the first generation of kids who are so sedentary and the first whose parents might outlive them," said Lopez. "We really need to be active in encouraging healthy eating and the joys and fun of exercising. I was really happy to have our tour provide a platform for ING's program."
"Preventing childhood obesity during the school years is critical, and no where more so than in the Latin community where the incidence of diabetes is high and growing," said Anthony. "ING funds programs in the public schools where all children can access them. We need to act quickly to reverse the trend or our kids will live sicker and die younger than any before them."

Como Ama una Mujer


Click to listen to music samples from the CD

Through the course of Como Ama Una Mujer, the first full-blown collection of Spanish-language tunes from multicultural diva Jennifer Lopez, we keep waiting for it to happen. A sweltering, hands-in-the-air dance anthem--the kind that made Lopez a superstar. Alas, the club beats never materialize: not even a soul-diva shimmy. The closest Lopez comes to is midtempo first single "Que Hiciste." (Seek out the pulsing, reggaeton-flavored remix for maximum dance floor fabulousness.) What we get here is a surprisingly solid collection of elegant ballads and rock-flavored tunes that showcase new vocal strengths and surprising lyrical maturity. Producers Marc Anthony, Estefano and Julio Reyes give Lopez the gloss without overpowing her, a key element to the disc's success. La Lopez recycles one track from 2005's Rebirth, "(Can't Believe) This Is Me," which pops up here as the superior "Porque te Marchas." The disc's second half is a sweeping, often gorgeous, stream of romantic consciousness, starting with the lovely "Tu" and gliding through the gently chugging "Sola." And the beautiful closing track "Adios" is a standout, pairing Lopez's lilting vocals with a gentle string arrangement and a rousing chorus of voices. A sterling achievement from a diva whose talent is just beginning to blossom. --Joey Guerra, Amazon.

Actress Jennifer Lopez's debut album fails in its attempt to provide a worthy musical backdrop to her much-discussed diva-esque image. Over the course of 13 songs, On the 6 displays barely a glimmer of the verve, poise, and sensuality of her screen performances in the likes of Out of Sight. With little vocal talent to rely on, Lopez generally seems content to ape Madonna's middle register like any happy radio listener. Similarly, several of the tracks here seem too rooted in the Latin-lite clichés of "La Isla Bonita." With practice--more Lopez CDs will surely follow in the wake of 6's success--the star might develop into a singer worth reckoning with, but for now she stands as a wonderful actress and a musical artist with an unengaging album to her name. --Rickey Wright, AMAZON.
