Gig Review: Jennifer Lopez - O2 Arena, London ✭✭✭✭✭

Jennifer Lopez 
O2 Arena, London

Monday 22nd October: Jennifer ‘J-LO’ Lopez continues on her world tour, hitting London for one night only. Some people may say that the American pop star is reaching the end of her career as a singer; however after the performances from Monday night I’d have to disagree, clearly the 43-year old still knows how to keep an arena entertained.

The show opens with a group of dancing men with top hats as Lopez makes her more than glamorous entrance, wearing lots of feathers and fur, she then strips down, to a tight fitting sparkly nude catsuit, which shows off her unbelievable figure. Shouting “Let’s get it!” the night kicks off with a number one single from 2005, ‘Get Right’.

Lopez continues with enormous amounts of energy, singing the urban classic ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’ and the clubby number ‘Waiting For Tonight’.

The night certainly wasn’t a disappointment, Lopez put on an incredible show. Amazing dance routines, explosions, chiselled backing dancers, gorgeous costumes, lasers and diamante covered props, not a lot more you could ask for. Watching Lopez move around the stage; dancing and singing, it seems like she hasn’t aged at all and is still more than capable of keeping up with dance routines and hitting every note. She is an absolutely beautiful person.

Lopez takes you back to the beginning of her singing career; back to the Bronx, with hits like ‘Jenny from the Block’ and ‘Ain’t it Funny’. The night includes songs from her album Love? Some of which are; ‘On the Floor’, ‘Until It Beats No More’ and ‘I’m Into You’. She spoke about still believing in the fairytale of love and that she had found true love, in the light of her children, (who were watching the show).

Having released her greatest hits album, Dance Again…The Hits in July of this year, it might appear that this was to be the last tour from Lopez, if this is the case she is definitely going out with a bang. I enjoyed every minute of this concert.
