Jennifer Lopez Sets Manila Concert

MANILA, Philippines - The world's most powerful celebrity is coming to the Philippines in November.

Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo), who topped this year's Forbes influential list, has decided to include Manila in her concert tour titled "Dance Again".

The concert, part of the tour Lopez shares with half-Filipino Enrique Iglesias, will happen on November 24, 2012 at the Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City. But the show's promoter in Manila said Iglesias may not be part of the Philippine tour.

Jun Lorenz Mamangon, CEO of N91 Live productions, the same promoting agency that has made last year's Justin Bieber concert possible for Filipino fans, will also finalize this week whether J. Lo will use SM MOA's The Arena or The Concert Grounds.

"I'm proud to announce that I'm bringing over Jennifer Lopez to Manila. We've been discussing this concert for over a year and a half. I had a good discussion with her manager last Tuesday (when things were finalized)," said Mamangon, who also revealed that he is in talks to bring along Jessica Sanchez with Lopez.

"I'm pushing for Jessica Sanchez to be Jennifer's front act and probably have her perform at least two songs for the Filipino concert goers," he added, at a Taguig restaurant during a media briefing for the forthcoming Philippine show of pop acts Michelle Branch and Jojo to be held at the Araneta Coliseum on June 7 and Waterfront Hotel in Cebu on June 8.

Lopez recently hit the news after reports surfaced that she is not sure whether to return as judge in the season 12 of "American Idol."

But the "On The Floor" hitmaker denied plans of leaving the Fox talent search series. Lopez wrote via Twitter, "There is no truth to reports that say I am definitely leaving Idol. All I said was I haven't decided what I am doing next year. When I know for sure what I'm doing I will let the #LOVE!RS know!"
