Get ready, Chicago. Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias are bringing their co-headlining tour to the Windy City, and you know it’s going to be muy caliente! But will Chicagoans go loco for a Lopez-Iglesias show during Lollapalooza weekend or will the sexy Latin pop stars end up feeling salty – or should I say spicy?
(Sorry. I’ve been watching a lot of “Access Hollywood” lately. I’ll stop.)
Lopez and Iglesias will play the United Center August 3, part of a 20-city summer tour that begins in Montreal July 14. The opening act will be reggaeton duo Wisin Y Yandel, who have headlined the Allstate Arena in the past and are normally too famous to be an opening act, but are likely trying to introduce their music to a non-Spanish speaking audience.
Tickets go on sale Friday.
And if you want to catch Iglesias before then, he’s one of many acts performing May 18 at 103.5 KISS FM’s Fantabuloso show at Allstate Arena.

On the record: "We were really struggling. It wasn't fun, and it wasn't as natural as it should be, as it was in the beginning.

Watch this: As I mentioned on Twitter last night, I’m a huge Batman nerd. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “A pro-wrestling fan who also likes superheroes? You’re kidding.” Anyway, I’m more excited than a grown man should be about “The Dark Knight Rises” and will probably go into more detail the closer we get to the film’s release, but for now here is the latest trailer for the film.
