Jennifer Lopez abruptly cancels This Is Me… Live concert tour, including 3 Canadian dates

Jennifer Lopez said on Friday that her This Is Me… Live summer concert tour has been cancelled so she can take time to be with her family.

Lopez wrote on her website that she is “completely heartsick and devastated” about letting her fans 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,” she added.

Representatives for concert promoter Live Nation also announced on Friday that the On the Floor singer needs a break to be with “her children, family and close friends.”

Lopez had been slated to play shows in Toronto and Montreal in August. The Canadian Ticketmaster website did not appear to list any other related tour dates on this side of the border as of Friday evening.

The tour cancellation comes amid rampant speculation in the media that Lopez’s marriage to actor Ben Affleck is on the rocks and may lead to their separation.

7 shows previously cancelled

Lopez had already cancelled seven dates of the North American tour in early May.

The 54-year-old was going to be performing songs from her recent 2024 album This is Me… Now as a companion to the Amazon MGM documentary of the same name.

Both the album and the documentary were released in February with the album peaking at number 38 on the Billboard album charts.

The tour was originally set to begin in Orlando, Fla., on June 26 and finish on Aug. 17 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
