Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez will share the stage during a co-headlining tour this summer, which launches in Canada.
The first two stops: Montreal and Toronto.
Iglesias performed in Canada during his Euphoria Tour in Windsor, Ont., and Montreal last February.
During a conference call, Iglesias asked Lopez if it would be her first time touring in Canada.
"It might be, yeah," she said. "Canada, I don't think I've ever gone there, have I? Oh God. I don't remember."
Actually, she has been here before. Lopez visited Toronto and Montreal in October 2007. She performed on stage with then-husband Marc Anthony on their El Cantante tour.
Meanwhile, Iglesias spent time in Toronto while recording his first album.
"You're gonna love it," he told Lopez over the phone. "I love Montreal. It's quite a city and then Toronto has always been good."
It's the first time the two singers have toured together.
"We probably share some fans, but (we're) definitely going to introduce each other to a whole other set of fans," Lopez said. "It really is a gift for the fans to be able to see a few different artists they like or be exposed to a new artist."
Iglesias and Lopez did not disagree on anything during the interview -- except on who should close the show.
Lopez argued the screaming girls would enjoy it if he closed the concert, while Iglesias said he wouldn't mind watching her perform from the audience.
The summer tour begins on July 14 and 15 with two concerts at the Bell Centre in Montreal, followed by two performances at the Air Canada Centre on July 17 and 18.
