Jennifer Lopez “heartsick” as she CANCELS This Is Me… Live Tour which was set to kick off in Orlando

Updated: Jun 1

Jennifer Lopez was set to kick off her first tour in 5 years Wednesday, June 26 in Orlando.


After much speculation that Jennifer Lopez was considering canceling her entire 2024, North American This Is Me…Live The Greatest Hits Tour due to apparently poor tickets sales, it has been announced today, Friday, May 31 that the tour has indeed been cancelled.


The news comes on top of reports that she and husband Ben Affleck are having marital issues, and are considering splitting, although it has to be said that this is speculation.


While reps for Lopez insist that the tour has not being canceled due to poor ticket sales, seating charts for multiple venues showed very poor sales. although certain venues including Orlando and Miami showed near sold our venues.



It was back on February 15 that Jennifer Lopez announced her highly anticipated return to the touring stage with This Is Me…Now The Tour, with the tour touted at the the stars triumphant comeback to the touring scene after a five-year break, following a successful 2019 tour that grossed over $50 million and sold out venues across the country.


Produced by Live Nation, the 30+ city tour was set to kick off on June 26 in Orlando with J-Lo taking to the stage at downtown's Kia Center.


This Is Me…Now The Tour was announced in a blaze of publicity on the back of Lopez releasing a new album,  This Is Me…Now, and the release of her self produced Amazon Original documentary, This Is Me…Now: A Love Story.


Then in April, after canceling seven dates of the tour due to poor ticket sales, Lopez renamed the tour “This Is Me… Live The Greatest Hits Tour.”


The renaming of the tour was an apparent attempt to move the focus from the new album’s music to her huge back-catolog of greatest hits.



The news that Jennifer Lopez has cancelled her 2024 North American tour was announced by the tour producer, Live Nation, who issued a statement, commenting, “Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends."


Lopez also released her own statement to fans, commenting, “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary."


She added “I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time…”


The tour was scheduled to kick off on June 26 in Orlando, and conclude in Houston on Aug. 31.


Live Nation say that anyone who has purchased tickets through Ticketmaster, will automatically be refunded – there is nothing further fans need to do.
