Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are set to hit the road together.The superstar couple announced they will co-headline their first tour together this fall, which will mark Jennifer’s first concert tour ever.Kicking off September 29 in Atlantic City, N.J., the road trip will also hit stops in Canada and Puerto Rico. Tickets go on sale on August 10 and be found at www.livenation.com.Marc and Jennifer will perform separate sets of their own material and are slated to belt out a few duets together as well. Each set will include songs in English and Spanish.The duo will also use the tour as an opportunity to address childhood obesity in Latino youths. One dollar from every ticket sold will go to the ING Run For Something Better program, a kids’ fitness program developed to reduce childhood obesity by focusing on maintaining healthy and active lifestyles.’When I was a kid, we spent most of our time outside visiting in the neighborhood with friends. This is the first generation of kids who are so sedentary and the first whose parents might outlive them,’ Jennifer said. ‘We really need to be active in encouraging healthy eating and the joys and fun of exercising. I was really happy to have our tour provide a platform for ING’s program.’Despite releasing six albums over the course of her music career, Jennifer, who turns 38 today, has never lived life on the road. Marc, a tour veteran, had recently expressed his desire to show his wife what she’s been missing.’Jennifer has never toured. I’ve toured all my life,’ Marc told Billboard. ‘This is where I can step in and say, ‘Oh, my God, this could be fun,’ and introduce her to that world. It is something she’s always wanted to do, but she’s never had the time…So, yes, we’re seriously talking about going out this year [and] putting together an amazing show with just her and myself.This isn’t the couple’s only joint project this year. Their biopic El Cantante, the story of salsa singer Hector Lavoe, will hit theaters on August 3.By Joyce EngPhoto: Wireimage.com
