Jennifer Lopez has canceled her ‘This Is Me… Live’ summer tour to spend more time with her family. She is “heartsick” over the decision, the singer announced to fans in her newsletter on Friday.

Jennifer Lopez Sends A Heartfelt Message to Fans

“Representatives for [tour promoter] Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour ‘THIS IS ME…LIVE’ is canceled,” the announcement reads. “Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family, and close friends.” Lopez addressed her fans, saying, “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. 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…”

Refunds and Speculations

Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will automatically be refunded, and those who bought via third-party resale sites should contact the point of purchase for more details.

The tour was originally set to launch on June 26 in Orlando and run through August 31 in Houston. It was initially intended to support her ninth studio album, This Is Me… Now. However, she quietly rebranded the tour to celebrate her songbook instead, renaming it the This Is Me… Live: The Greatest Hits Tour.

Following the album’s release, Lopez released two accompanying films: This Is Me… Now: A Love Story and a documentary, The Greatest Love Story Never Told. These films celebrated her return to music and reunion with her husband, Ben Affleck.

The announcement of the tour’s cancellation comes amid reports of poor ticket sales and speculation about marital issues between Lopez and Affleck. Various media reports suggested that the need for family time was necessary due to these personal issues. Despite this, sources close to Lopez insisted that the tour was not canceled due to poor ticket sales, pointing to strong sales in cities like Newark, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Anaheim, and Toronto.

The news does not come as a total surprise, as the tour had been beset with reports of many unsold seats on ticketing websites. After canceling seven dates in April, Lopez quietly renamed the tour to apparently broaden its scope. This suggested a pivot from a tour focusing on the new album’s songs to one spanning her entire discography.
