What to expect in JLo’s Manila concert

International superstar Jennifer Lopez is set to make her Filipino fans dance the night away on her first ever Manila concert "Dance Again World Tour" at the Mall of Asia Arena on November 26.

After thirteen years as a singer, selling over 70 millions of albums worldwide, Jennifer makes "Dance Again" as her first ever headlining tour, which kicked-off in Panama City on June 14. Among her stops are Europe, Asia, Australia, Central America and North America.

Jennifer, popularly known as JLo, will take her fans back from her "Jenny from the Block" days to her now glitzier and fiercer "LOVE?" phase at the concert.

As we count down the days to see JLo rock the Manila stage, here's what we can look forward to "Dance Again World Tour."

1.       Four-part concert
Known for being a total performer, JLo will surely not disappoint fans with her highly-pumped up concert, amazing dance choreography and glamorous production design. Concert reviews and setlist suggest that the concert is split into four parts: Old Hollywood, JLo's Bronx days, funk and party.

JLo opens up the concert with "Never Gonna Give Up" in her Old Hollywood entrance, while being backed-up by her dancers dressed in Broadway-inspired costumes, tall hats and canes. Filipino fans will sure dance to her familiar R&B hits, including "Jenny from the Block" and "Ain't It Funny." The dance diva also shows her mellow side with her renditions of "If You Had My Love" and "Until It Beats No More."

2.       Party with JLo's hits
JLo topped the charts with her upbeat, dancey pop-R&B songs, so expect the concert to be full of her danceable hits matched with lots of booty-shaking choreography. JLo will keep you dancing to the tunes of "On the Floor," "Let's Get Loud," "Get Right" and "Papi," among others. JLo is also sure to showcase her 'hood' Bronx days in her bling-bling fashion and R&B-pop inspired songs, such as "I'm Real," 'Goin' In" and "All I Have." Reports also say that her beau dancer Casper Smart is the tour's co-choreographer.

3.       Plenty of costume changes

JLo is sure to bring out her fashionista side to the concert. Fans will see plenty of costume changes, courtesy of Beirut-based designer Zuhair Murad, who designed her tour wardrobe. JLo has also used to wear some of Murad's creations during her stint as American Idol judge.

According to Women's Wear Daily website, Murad created six looks for JLo, including a "feathered skirt and hat, a jumpsuit, a cape, a bodysuit and several short dresses." Her sheer, embellished jumpsuit, which is reminiscent of the one she wore during the American Music Awards, showcases her famous curves. In her R&B-pop number, JLo dons a sparkly white track suit, baring her toned abs.

4.       "Dance Again World Tour" to be in 3D film
Given that "Dance Again World Tour" is JLo's first, it is just fitting for the concert to be theatrically released, as well. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be after the concert title "Dance Again," which will show concert performances in 3D with 2D-lensed documentary. This will show select clips from Europe, Asia and Australia, so, make sure to be part of JLo's "Dance Again" history.

"Dance Again World Tour" tickets are available in all SM Ticket outlets. JLO Dance Again World Tour at the Mall of Asia Arena is presented by Vista Land, Zenea and PLDT Fibr; an event by Radio High 105.9 and MMI.
