Dance Again World Tour
(2012)

Dance Again World Tour was the first worldwide concert tour by American entertainer Jennifer Lopez. Throughout majority her music career, beginning as early as 2001, a world tour by Lopez was anticipated, though it never materialized. Following the release of her seventh studio album Love? (2011), she was more intent on touring than ever. However, it was not until March 2012 when the tour came into the works. As rumors began to circulate, Lopez later confirmed that April that she would be embarking on her first ever world tour. She was joined by Spanish recording artist Enrique Iglesias for the North American leg of the tour, which was presented by State Farm Insurance and promoted by AEG Live. The Dance Again World Tour also visited Australia, Asia, South America and Europe. It commenced on June 14, 2012 in Panama, and concluded on December 22, 2012 in Puerto Rico.

Fashion designer Zuhair Murad, a frequent collaborator of Lopez, designed all of the tour's costumes. Lopez, who creatively directed the show, included several different personal themes into the tour, which was split into four parts. These themes included old Hollywood glamour, funk, love and partying, as well as Lopez's "Jenny from the Block" persona and her hip-hop upbringing in The Bronx, New York. Generally, Lopez aimed to convey a message about dancing again and feeling innovated.

The tour was a general success, grossing over $52.6 million at the box office. It was ranked as the year's thirteenth highest-grossing tour, from her international dates alone. It was attended by over 745,442 people. The tour's international dates were attended by an average crowd of 9,596, with tickets costing an average of $109.6.[2] The tour also received generally positive reviews from critics, with most complimenting Lopez on her choreography and stage act as well as physicality. It was described as an "explosion" of color and sound which proved Lopez's vocal ability while also remaining faithful to her humble "Jenny from the Block" persona.

Background[edit]

Following her two Let's Get Loud concerts in 2001, Lopez announced she would like to go on a full tour in 2002, however, this plan did not come to fruition.[3] In January 2005, Lopez revealed to MTV News that she was in the midst of planning a tour to support her fourth studio album, Rebirth. Lopez stated: "I've tried to plan a tour so many times [...] And we're planning it again. It's exciting. We'll see if it happens [...] I've learned not to get my hopes up. I can't wait!" Lopez also added that she envisioned the tour as "Just me doing my thing".[4] However, details for a tour were never unveiled and there subsequently was never one.[5] In May 2011, Lopez announced plans to launch a tour in support of her seventh studio album Love?. Lopez stated that: "My fans have waited a long time for this. We really want to do it at least once in my lifetime."[6]

In March 2012, it was announced that Lopez would headline two popular music festivals in Brazil.[7] While promoting the announcement, the singer mentioned she would like to venture onto a world tour "at some point". Following the announcement, Billboard reported Lopez was in talks to launch a co-headlining tour with Enrique Iglesias.[8] On April 30, 2012, Lopez announced the joint tour with Iglesias on On Air with Ryan Seacrest.[9]

Development[edit]

"We have a lot of choreographers working with us. It’s going to be an amazing, amazing show."[10]

—Lopez

In April 2012, a source told Celebuzz, "J.Lo and her team have blocked out more than a month of their schedules, beginning May 4, to start intense rehearsals, each day, at a sound stage in the Los Angeles area. This will be a huge tour, complete with a lavish set, full band and team of dancers."[11] The Dance Again World Tour was directed by famed tour director Jamie King, alongside Casper Smart, who also served as its choreographer.[12] Lopez served as creative director of the set, which consisted of an eighteen-body band including dancers. Her manager Benny Medina was executive producer, while managing the show alongside Steve Brumbach.[13]

Enrique Iglesias co-headlined the tour's American leg.

Speaking of the tour's American leg, in which she co-headlined with Enrique Iglesias, Lopez said, "I was going to go on tour, he was going to go on tour and it was like, 'Well, why don’t we go on tour together?' We sat down and we talked about it and people went crazy for the idea." She opined that "it's going to be one of the most historic tours ever", as there had never been "something like this, where Latinos come together like this. It's international – English and Spanish." Lopez further described it as "groundbreaking", feeling honored to be apart of it.[14]

Initially, reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel were also slated to join Iglesias and Lopez on the whole tour as its opening act, but amicably exited due to "unresolvable Issues".[15] They released a statement, "Our sincerest apologies go out to our fans. We wish Jennifer and Enrique, as well as the tour, the very best".[15] Instantly after their announcement, fans of Wisin & Yandel took to social networking sites Twitter and Facebook to express their displeasure about the group cancelling. One fan even commented online stating, "I sooo wish I could get my money back!! I bought those tickets just to see Wisin & Yandel".[16] Recording artist Frankie J. was then named as their replacement. He said, "I am super excited to join Enrique and Jennifer on this adventure. They are global superstars and I am honored that they invited me to be a part of their tour".[16]

Lopez incorporated several personal themes into the tour, which reflected upon different aspects of her career.[17] During an interview with the Australian television series Today, she explained that she "wanted to put on something" that her fans would "really be satisfied with". "There's a lot of different sides of me" she stated, "[There's] kinda like the Jenny from the Block side and this glamour Hollywood persona, red carpet thing." Lopez wanted to "make sure" she "got it all" in there for her fans.[17] As an artist, Lopez felt that it was her job to "bare" her soul, and wanted her concert viewers to walk away with her message of dancing again. She told the website HollywoodLife, "I had control to deliver this message, so I did. I wanted to have the audience leave a little more hopeful. They jumped, danced, felt silly and may now would be thinking, ‘Ok things didn’t work out before, but maybe this time, it will.’"[18]

Wardrobe[edit]

Four of Murad's designs for the tour

Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad designed Lopez's costumes and fabrication for the Dance Again World Tour.[13][19] Lopez revealed to People in May 2012, "Zuhair Murad is going to do all my costumes. We’re still thinking about [the looks]."[10] Murad has designed pieces, which are described as "capricious designs", for Lopez frequently over the years. In 2010, a dress he designed for Lopez evoked "crying", while creating a "spider web-inspired bodysuit" for her performance at KIIS-FM's Wango Tango concert the following year.[20] Additionally, Murad was responsible for Lopez's dress at the Academy Awards in 2012 having "ingeniously stole the show from nearly every other red carpet guest".[19] Rolling Stone's Colleen Nika spoke positively about Murad designing the wardrobe, "Whatever looks the two end up conjuring together, they're guaranteed, on Lopez's shapely form, to strike a sexy, maximalist note".[19] Furthermore, Lopez was a big fan of Murad's creations, often sporting them on American Idol; Daily Mail referred to her as having a "love affair" with his creations.[21][22]

Lopez's wardrobe for the tour includes "a feathered skirt and hat, a jumpsuit, a cape, a bodysuit and several short dresses". On June 12, 2012, Murad unveiled the tour's first costume sketches. A "before and after" picture, the first image depicted an "elaborate" scarlet red robe on top of a shimmering dress, which was tied to Lopez's waste, while the robe "drapes over her shoulders and then trails out".[22] The dress she was wearing, fully revealed in the second image, "features thousands of red beads hand-sewn onto nude silk tulle in a flame pattern".[23] Murad was also reported, at the time, to have been working on a bodysuit and several short frocks. Kristie Lau of the Daily Mail said the outfits themselves "will no doubt prove show-stopping".[22] Overall, Murad created six new looks for Lopez's show. This included the elaborate red robe along with a plunging catsuit which Sarah Bull of Daily Mail said clung to her figure, as well as the featured skirt and hat, a jumpsuit and two capes among other looks.[21][24] Bull commented that the skintight catsuit "bursts of diamantes to conceal her modesty."[24]

Lopez was forced to conceal her provocative performance and wardrobe by conservative Muslim laws. This occurred at her Indonesian concert. Chairi Ibrahim, project manager for the venue, told CNN that "She'll have to cover up a little bit" as well as altering her "sexual dance moves" and stage performance.[25][26] Lopez's back-up dancers also had to alter their appearance.[27] Instead, during her Jakarta concert she wore "a baggy silver jumpsuit, which concealed her famous curvaceous figure, as opposed to the tour’s signature nude sparkling cat jumpsuit, which she regularly wore on tour" according to The Jakarta Post.[28] Her back-up dancers had to cover their "bare chests" and "revealing cleavage".[28]

Concert synopsis[edit]

The Dance Again World Tour is split into four acts. The first is based around an old Hollywood glamour theme. A large curtain printed with the "J.Lo" logo printed appears. The 90-minute show begins with a broadway themed video clip of Lopez, set to the song "Never Gonna Give Up".[29] A group of male dancers with top hats perform an opening sequence, before the curtain drops. Lopez makes her glamorous entrance, while wearing the feathered skirt. She rips the skirt off, revealing a sparkly catsuit. She greets the crowds, "Hello Lovers, Let's get it!", before she opens with "Get Right".[30] Her performance of a "rocked-out" version of "Get Right" contained "infectious horn riffs".[28] She then quickly switches to "Love Don't Cost a Thing", before stopping to greet the audience again. She resumes with performances of "I'm Into You", featuring Lil Wayne on the big screen, and "Waiting for Tonight".[29] "Love Don't Cost a Thing" features a fold-out chair, while "Waiting for Tonight" is performed on a white moving platform set up on the stage.

Following an intercession, the concert's second act, dedicated to Lopez's upbringing in The Bronx, New York and her hip-hop roots, begins. It includes a medley, choreographed by Parris Goebel.[13] Featured artists of all songs appear on the big screen. The act begins with a boxing video set to the song "Louboutins". The message is to "get back when you fall down". A boxing ring then appears on stage and Lopez emerges with a different costume, a gold cape, and sings "Goin' In".[31] Her dancers are seen wearing gold and black boxing gloves with glitter on them. After her performance of "Goin' In" finished, Lopez states, "Do you see the fight earlier? When we fall down, we have to get up. It’s also how we do it where I come from."[28] Additionally, Lopez talks about the fight: how the "little guy" fell down and got back up despite high competition.

Following this, the "Back-to-Bronx" medley begins. She is seen wearing a tilted silver cap. She breaks into "I'm Real", "All I Have" and the murder remix version of "Ain't It Funny". She finishes off this act with "Jenny from the Block". Before performing the song, Lopez states, "I'm just a simple girl from the Bronx. Don't believe all this glitter. I'm just a girl from New York, a long way from home." In another concert she states, "I’m just a simple girl from the Bronx with a humble beginning."[28][32] Robert Copsey of Digital Spy stated that the mood of this was: "fitting for an artist of whom many of her hits punctuated the crowd's teenagehoods",[29] while Rachael Wheeler of Daily Mirror said: "Watching the concert was like going back through my teenage years, past drunken house parties at uni and all the way up to a night out last week."[32]

The concert's third act is based around a theme of "Funk & Love"[28] with an old-school uptown theater theme. During the intermission between the second and third part, a video clip of Lopez and her boyfriend to the song "Baby I Love U!" plays.[29] She then states: "Enough of this lovey dovey shit, gimme some funk!" and sings "Hold It, Don't Drop It".[32] A medley of "I'm Glad", "Brave", "Secretly" then occurs. After a minor break, Lopez returns to the stage and slows it down for a performance of the acoustic version of "If You Had My Love", and then a heart-warming performance of "Until It Beats No More" while a slideshow video clip featuring pictures and video clips of her and her four year-old twins is played in the background.[31] During both songs, she wore a flowing turquoise dress and basked in "purple light and smoke".[28]

The fourth act is based around a partying theme. After retreating backstage following "Until It Beats No More", Lopez returns on-stage wearing a tuxedo with pink ruffles while playing a bongo. She then opens this section with "Let's Get Loud" right after playing the bongo drums. As the performance progressed, her dancers ripped off the tuxedo to reveal a black-laced body suit.[28] She then breaks into "Papi" and then "On the Floor". The show's encore is a performance of "Dance Again".[29] The opening of the performance featured a video clip in which a masked Lopez declared "You will live, you will love...and you will Dance Again". She is joined by her boyfriend Casper Smart on stage, who also appears in the music video for the song, during the song's dancebreak.[28][33][34][35]

Commercial performance[edit]

Several of Lopez's shows have garnered her spots on Billboard's Box-score lists. Her Valencia, Venezuela concert made the list's top-ten, ranking at nine having grossed a total of $1,748,020 with 4,900 tickets sold.[36] Her concert in Zurich, Switzerland was ranked twenty-five on the list having grossed $1,142,530 with 10,400 tickets sold.[37] The tour's American leg generated $21.2 million at the Box Office.[38][39] With ticket sales reported from the first fifteen concert arenas, the tour's revenue reached over $12.7 million, from 164,481 sold seats. For the week of August 31, 2012, Iglesias and Lopez were ranked No. 2 on Billboard's list of "Top 10 Grossing Tours".[40] All of the leg's concerts, excluding one show in Atlanta, were sold out.[38][39]

Lopez's concert in Manila, Philippines sold out fully, and according to Manila Times, audiences had to endure "hellish traffic" to get to the venue.[41] In Australia, twenty $800 "meet and greet" tickets were made available per show and successfully sold out swiftly. The tickets were considered over-priced, labeled as "overwhelming" by news.com.au.[42] Her Dubai concert tickets sold out quickly. Sally Edwards, Director of the Dubai Calendar, said Lopez "has shown us why she has been named the number one global celebrity by Forbes Magazine" and called the success overwhelming.[43] Of her Dubai concert, Natalie Long of Tabloid! noted that Lopez sold out at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre months ahead of time which marked a "rarity".[44]

Critical response[edit]

Casper Smart, Lopez's boyfriend, joins her on-stage during the show's encore performance of "Dance Again".

The Dance Again World Tour garnered general acclaim throughout its run. Of her concert in Recife, where it rained, The Huffington Post's Ashley Percival said Lopez's "sex-pack was on show for all to see" as she was "still getting her impressive bod out despite the downpour", calling her a "trooper" for dancing in the rain.[45] Cory Lopez of Celebuzz praised Lopez's physicality and said "despite the heavy downpour, a smiling J.Lo kept the show going".[46] A writer from the Montreal Gazette gave the opening night of the tour with Enrique a positive review, saying that Lopez won by "showering everyone with riches" while Iglesias scored a "partial partial victory by paying attention to the faces in the crowd". Although, the writer felt that Lopez should have had her set second to Iglesias, so she could have had "the glory of the big show-ending moment rather than the glory of the big pre-bathroom-break moment."[35] Rachael Wheeler of Daily Mirror described the show as an "explosion of sound, dance and colour". Wheeler said that while Lopez was "a very small singer on a very big stage" she "absolutely dominated The O2, with massive routines full of hardcore choreography seeing the former dancer strutting."[32] The Guardian's Caroline Sullivan said of Lopez's stage performance "At the end, it isn't J-Lo the mother or even J-Lo the diva who sticks in the mind, but Jenny from the block, who still knows where she came from".[31] Robert Copsey of the British website Digital Spy said that Lopez looks "mind-bogglingly youthful and trim", and said that her boxing-ring performance of "Goin' In" allowed her "to display her enviable abs and hi-NRG dance moves."[29]

A writer from Today's Zaman said "her stage performance was visually enriched by lasers, costumes and dance moves",[47] while Turkish Weekly said that she "blew away her fans".[48] According to the website Novinite, her Bulgarian concert attendants were "mesmerized" by her.[49] Natalie Long from Tabloid praised her uptempo performance but also praised her vocals on "Until It Beats No More", stating that she "proved she was the perfect American Idol judge" with "great pipes".[44] Pocholo Concepcion of the Philippine Daily Inquirer described her performance in Manila, Philippines as "spellbinding" and wrote that her stage act was "powerful enough to soften the hearts of skeptics and critics. Backed by a six-member live band and two backup vocalists, Lopez couldn’t do anything wrong – even if at times her solo singing spots revealed the inadequacy of her vocal skills."[50] Amanda Lago of GMA News said that the beginning of the Filipino show was "slightly underwhelming" but the crowd "cheered endlessly and cried out" for Lopez. Lago criticized Lopez's by noting that while "the dancing was flawless from the get-go" the vocals weren't.[51]

Lopez performs "Hold It Don't Drop It".

Hans Nicholas Jong of The Jakarta Post called her Jakarta concert an "explosion of color and sound filled with intricate, heart-pounding choreography" which proved that "she really is still Jenny from the Block".[28] Jong said that she "hit all the dance moves while singing in-tune at the same time without seemingly breaking a single sweat."[28] Chairi Ibrahim from Dyandra Entertainment praised the concert for Lopez having toned it down, stating Lopez was "very cooperative ... she respected our culture."[52] Despite this, some fans felt that she should have appeared "the way she is".[52] Han Wei Chou of Channel NewsAsia said that "There really wasn't a single dull moment" at her Singapore concert, calling her performance "thoroughly enjoyable" to the audience who were "screaming in approval".[53] Reviewing her Australian concert, Ross McRae of the The West Australian said the audience "went wild" and Lopez "lapped up every minute".[54] He noted that Lopez's vocals were "strong and more than capable recreating the radio and club hits" she performed.[54] McRae also praised her humbleness, noting that she was "actually excited about being on stage performing for her fans, rather than a pop diva."[54] Craig Mathieson from The Sydney Morning Herald wrote that it wasn't as "slick as some pop tours" and lacked "momentum and a definable peak".[55] The tour earned Iglesias and Lopez an award for Tour of the Year at the 2013 Latin Billboard Music Awards.[56]

Concert film[edit]

The Dance Again World Tour was filmed in 3D for an upcoming theatrical film, entitled Dance Again. The film's producer, Simon Fields, described it as a "high energy documentary" that will "combine 3D concert performances with 2D-lensed documentary content, which will be shot during Lopez's world tour on stops in Europe, Asia and Australia". According to Fields, the documentary portion of the film will follow both Lopez's personal and professional life, including "her reflections on her romantic happiness" following her divorce from Marc Anthony. Ality Technica will be handling the 3D production for the movie, while Ted Kenney will direct the 3D shoots. Fields, Benny Medina and Lopez will executive produce the film through Nuyorican Productions. Filming for the film began on the October 5 concert in Lisbon, Portugal.[57] Lopez has confirmed that the film will be released in Spring 2013.[58] As of March 2014, the film is yet to surface.
