Jennifer Lopez Can’t Catch A Break: Now This After Concerts Canceled

Jennifer Lopez has canceled several concert dates on her upcoming “This Is Me… Now” tour, according to a notification on Ticketmaster. The affected dates include shows in Nashville, Tenn., Raleigh, N.C., Atlanta, Ga., Tampa, Fla., and New Orleans, La., all scheduled from August 22 to August 30. The announcement indicated that the cancellations were due to logistical issues encountered by the promoter.

Ticketmaster’s website simply stated, “Unfortunately, the Event Organizer has had to cancel your event.” Entertainment Weekly (EW) reports that there is potential for rescheduling the concerts in these cities at a later date, though specific details have not been provided.

The tour was set to promote Lopez’s new project, a sequel to her 2002 album “This Is Me… Then.” The new album, titled “This Is Me… Now,” aligns with the release of a self-funded streaming movie and an accompanying documentary about its creation.

Despite the anticipation, the album experienced modest commercial success, debuting at No. 38 on the Billboard 200 and quickly falling off the chart the following week. However, it did achieve a No. 1 spot on the Top Album Sales chart.

The streaming movie, titled “Atlas,” features Lopez as Atlas Shepherd, a data analyst with a mistrust of artificial intelligence. The plot follows her character’s journey as she joins a mission to capture a renegade robot, with whom she shares a mysterious past. Despite challenges, the narrative pushes her to trust AI to save humanity’s future.

Upon its release, Netflix published a trailer for “Atlas,” which garnered mixed reactions from viewers. Some social media users criticized the film, suggesting it portrayed AI too favorably and seemed like propaganda.

Comments ranged from skepticism about the movie’s intent to jokes about the film being overly revealing in its trailer.

Social media reactions also included some humor, with users joking about the entire plot being disclosed in the trailer. “This is very good movie, thank you Netflix. 2 minutes and 35 seconds tells the whole story perfectly,” one user remarked. Others echoed this sentiment, feeling the trailer alone provided a complete view of the film.

Despite the setbacks with her tour and the polarizing reception of her film project, Lopez’s ventures continue to attract attention, both for their creative elements and the controversies they stir.

Fans affected by the tour cancellations are advised to seek refunds or await announcements regarding potential rescheduled dates. As of now, representatives for Lopez and tour organizers Live Nation have yet to comment further on the situation.
