American pop sensation Jennifer Lopez is shaking up her summer plans with a revamped North American tour, now titled “This Is Me… Now | The Greatest Hits,” following reports of lackluster ticket sales for her original tour concept.

Initially announced as the “This Is Me… Now” tour in February, alongside a musical film and album release, the Live Nation-promoted trek aimed to visit 30 cities across the US and Canada.

However, recent developments have led organizers to pivot towards a career-spanning concept, hoping to reignite excitement among fans of the 54-year-old superstar.

Amid murmurs of underwhelming ticket sales, Lopez’s team has made strategic adjustments, canceling the final seven dates of the original tour, including shows at prominent venues like Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Houston’s Toyota Center.

While no official reason has been provided for the cancellations, ticket holders have been assured of refunds.

In an effort to offset these setbacks, three additional shows have been added to the June-August tour, including extra nights in Miami, Toronto, and a special homecoming performance at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Despite the tour shuffle, Lopez’s recent album “This Is Me… Now,” her first since 2014’s “A.K.A.,” made its mark on the charts, debuting at number 38 on the Billboard 200.

The album, which sold 14,000 copies in its first week, also claimed the top spot on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart.

Lopez’s latest musical endeavors are part of a broader creative endeavor, including a $20 million self-financed Amazon Original musical film, “This Is Me… Now: A Love Story,” and an accompanying behind-the-scenes documentary, “The Greatest Love Story Never Told,” both released in February.

As Lopez gears up to deliver a career-spanning spectacle for her loyal fanbase, the rebranded tour promises to showcase the timeless hits and electrifying performances that have solidified her status as one of pop music’s most enduring icons.
