Superstars Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias brought their massive summer tour to historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City Sunday night. The jennifer lopez boardwalk hall atlantic citydynamic duo performed their chart topping hits for thousands of screaming fans. The co-headlining tour unites the artists for a 26 date stint. After choosing to leave FOX’s reality hit TV series, “American Idol” Lopez has told fans she belongs right where she is—performing on stage.

Having recently released his new single, “Tienes Que Creer en Mi,” international musician and singer-songwriter Frankie J  opened the tour.

Backed by an eight piece band, Enrique Iglesias gave a high energy performance running back and forth on the stage singing “Dirty Dancer,” “Bailamos,” “Tonight (I'm Lovin' You),” “Escape,” “I Like It” and “Hero.” He also sang “Stand By Me,” which he said was his favorite song as a kid.

Next, stage hands prepared the venue for Lopez’s entrance. Her male back-up dancers appeared on stage each wearing a 1930’s inspired tuxedo with top hats and canes. A video package of Lopez getting ready was showed accompanied by “Never Gonna Give Up” as she came out wearing a nude body suit with lots of rhinestones and a long, white feathered skirt. In no time at all the skirt was off and the male dancers lost their jackets and danced in cut-out shirts performing “Get Right” followed by “Love Don’t Cost A Thing,” “I’m Into You” and “Waiting For Tonight.

The powerhouse performer donned stunning costumes and her show had a theater-like feel to it with great props. For one set of songs, a boxing ring was brought out and Lopez had on sequined pants and top while singing “Goin’ In” followed by her old-school songs such as “Ain’t It Funny“I’m Real” (Remix) and “Jenny From the Block.”

In-between sets, the songstress appeared in a video with boyfriend Casper Smart featuring smart and playful gestures as the couple flirted whilejennifer lopez boardwalk hall atlantic city sitting on a bench wearing all black.

Lopez also had a message for fans displayed at the end of her concert up on the big screen: “I still believe in love…” as confetti and fireworks went off inside Boardwalk Hall. The entertaining double performance from Iglesias and Lopez gave fans the ultimate summer concert experience.
