I can’t believe I’m writing this article; the time has finally come Jennifer Lopez will get her own Las Vegas residency! So super excited about this!
It was announced on part 1 of American Idol’s finale, last night. Her still-untitled Vegas show will open Jan. 20 at the Axis theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino (current home of Britney Spears’ Piece of Me show), where it will continue for more dates across January, February, May and June.
Jennifer already performed in Vegas on New Years Eve, giving her the opportunity to get an idea of how it will be like. It “made me feel more comfortable with the idea of doing something there permanently,” she says. Lopez wants to incorporate all her musical sides into the intimate, dance-heavy affair — from her Latin heritage, to her charts hits to her Jenny from the Block-era material from the early 2000’s.
“There’s a lot of different things over the years people have come to know me as (and) so many different things we can delve into,” Lopez says. She also mentioned that next to her own material she also wants to include other music from the likes of Selena and Celia Cruz. “We haven’t started exactly, but in my mind, I know it’s going to be a multifaceted, high-energy kind of block party.” The development of the show will start next month.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday (1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT). Meet & Greet option is available as an add on to any ticket. It includes a photo opportunity with Jennifer and an autographed special edition JLo poster. For more info go to JLoVegas.com.
