Her current performance schedule will have Jennifer take the stage in February, May and June in what Planet Hollywood describes as an "over-the-top show" at the intimate AXIS Theatre.

“Jennifer Lopez at The AXIS is yet another highlight of Caesars Entertainment being at the forefront of Las Vegas’ entertainment and nightlife,” added Jason Gastwirth, senior vice president of marketing for Caesars Entertainment. “Jennifer’s show will be the perfect combination of a cutting-edge production spectacular and an extraordinarily fun night-out, all centered around a supremely talented international superstar.”

Meanwhile, the American Idol judge has also recently made headlines after she was pictured reuniting with her ex-boyfriend, choreographer Casper Smart.
