Enrique Iglesias is currently on tour with Jennifer Lopez, and tells ET that given the magnitude of both of their live shows, things don’t always come together so smoothly. “A co-headline is always tough. In this case you have two production teams and you’re joining them together, and that can be a little chaotic at times,” Iglesias admits.
“It’s always chaotic the first few shows but…when things get going, it’s definitely worth it. In this case, it’s already our fifth show so it’s starting to kick in, and I think fans are enjoying [these] two completely different shows.”
Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez on the same stage is just calling for a ha-cha-cha description of what the night will bring. Yes, we are saying the two mega stars — in U.S. and Latin entertainment circles — are easy on the eyes. And a duet called "Mouth 2 Mouth" only adds to the steamy scenario (the song is on Iglesias' "Euphoria Reloaded," a reissue of his 2010 "Euphoria.") But along with the fantabulous spectacle of a live performance by Iglesias and J-Lo, is good music to be heard.
Why go: With Iglesias billed as the headliner, this show should be mostly about the music and not the glamour and spectacle of celebrity.
Still, there was plenty to enjoy in her 90-minute extravaganza-from her athletic, often shirtless backup dancers doing back flips worthy of an Olympic routine, a nod to “I Love Lucy” with a backdrop of “Club Babalu” for the party anthem, “Let’s Get Loud,” to her playing to the Latinos in the audience, shouting out to her “Papis” and delivering the opening refrain of her dance hit, “On the Floor” in Spanish from a raised throne.
An encore of “Dance Again” ended in a rain of confetti, pyrotechnics, and an entire audience dancing as if in a club.
“This is why I love the East Coast,” Lopez told the crowd.

Where J-Lo’s set satisfied the males in the audience, co-headliner Enrique Iglesias provided machismo and eye-candy for the ladies.
Announcing his arrival through bold messages on a video screen (“It’s My Time!” “Are You Ready?”) Iglesias emerged in glorious splendor, dressed simply in jeans, a black t-shirt and a baseball cap. His chiseled features were enough to elicit screams of delight from his legions of female fans, lapping up every bit of his sweaty, jocular physique.
