The star power and performing prowess Lopez and Anthony bring to the tour is unequaled. Anthony is one of the most thrilling performers in contemporary music and will perform music from his extensive English and Spanish repertoire. Superstar Jennifer Lopez will be touring for the first time, and performing many of the greatest hits she's had in English and also songs in Spanish from her album COMO AMA UNA MUJER.

$l.00 from every ticket sold on JENNIFER & MARC EN CONCIERTO will benefit the ING Run For Something Better, a free school based running program ING created to reduce childhood obesity by introducing kids to the benefits of running, physical fitness, and healthy lifestyle choices. The NALEO (The National Association of Elected and Appointed Latino Officials) Education Fund, ING's charitable partner for the multi-city tour, will direct the funds into schools with high Latino enrollment.

Lopez and Anthony, the superstar actors/performers/producers have been busy the past month promoting their film El Cantante, in which Anthony stars as the tragic salsa legend Hector Lavoe and Lopez stars as Puchi, his manager/wife. Produced by Lopez's Nuyorican Productions, El Cantante opened last week to rave reviews. Newsday wrote, " ... the haunting beauty of the movie is the way it dramatizes the central figure of salsa music, the singer, who is burdened with carrying the hopes and dreams of his audience ... " Anthony just released the soundtrack to El Cantante and Lopez is set to release BRAVE, her seventh album, on October 9. This past March, she released her first Spanish language album, COMO AMA UNA MUJER which nailed the #1 spot on the Billboard Latin Chart its first week out.
