Enrique Iglesias Pulls Out Of Britney's Overpriced Tour!

enrique pulls out of britney tour

Better find a REALLY good replacement! Or lower ticket prices ASAP!

Enrique Iglesias has abruptly pulled out of Brit Brit's North America tour, mere hours after the tour was officially announced!

He was slated to perform as the ultimate opening act for Britney, but now it looks like they'll have to find someone else.

Good for him! Given the absurd prices that they're charging for tickets, perhaps he thought better of it all.

Hopefully they can find someone good to replace Enrique. At $96 - $346, Britney is going to need to REALLY impress her fans to convince them to throw down SO much $$$ to go see her.

…Maybe she can convince NSYNC to reunite solely to join her on tour! If she can pull that off, then MAYBE we'd say those ticket prices are justified! Ha!

Who do U think they should bring on to replace Enrique on Britney's tour?

  1. 1

    Your fucking GaGa charges $ 200 on average - talk about that you fucking idiot.



  2. 2

    I just want Brit all to myself. So I am kinda happy he pulled out… I didn't wanna see him anyways.



  3. 3

    Perez you're a fucking ass clown. Shut the fuck up.



  4. 4

    In europe the cheapest tickets for lady gaga were from 78€ = $109.71, and britney she's been having the most succesful world tours since 10 years ago so yeah, she's worth it and you are gonna have to zip your mouth when those tickets sold out. You fucking know they will.



  5. 5

    Willow Smith can open for her.



  6. 6

    $96 - $346 per ticket for a concert?? Umm….. there is still a RECESSION going on.

    Brit, that is really SoStupid.com



  7. 7

    Why dont you just shut up, fans dont want enrique, i rather see kesha and xtina open the tour



  8. 8

    What the fuck have you seen what rihanna,katy perry and lady gaga charges for there concerts!! You all must be cheap 96 dollers is nothing!! Team britney!!



  9. 9

    I really don't get Enrike's Latin-Hipster his music bores me to death, and and Britney . . . well She doesn't write, she can't sing live, she doesn't play any music-instrument, she has the personality of a 14 years old southern girl, she can't dance . . . mmm . . . Thanks but, no thanks!



  10. 10

    Okay, now that he isn't going. Maybe HER management, not BRITNEY since she doesn't set the prices for tickets, will go down. Didn't really want to see him anyway. Solo act bitch! The way it should have been. Perez, you need to point out the cost of tix for Gaga and everyone else's shows. They are pretty high too.

    Re: Jake Updegraff – lol exactly, I was planning on using the Enrique act to drink anyway ;)



  12. 12

    I wouldn't pay $10 to see her dance like a wooden, chubby doll.



  13. 13

    Good God I thought he was out of his mind to tour with the no talent crazy fat cow. Time for the dude to fire his stupid manager



  14. 14

    Kim Kardashian



  15. 15

    Ke$ha



  16. 16

    Re: Mikel Johnsan – Have you ever heard of citing your sources? You have no proof of that. In the US her cheapest tickets cost at most "65 throughout the country (I went through the Gaga ticketmaster page and checked prices for various cities.) You are exaggerating to beyond belief. I would never pay the real price to see Gaga anyways, its still outlandish, but get your facts right at least.



  17. 17

    First of all, I payed 150$ for mediocre seats for Lady Gaga, so I dont see the big problem here. And second, dont blame Britney, but her Team. She probably doesnt even know the dates of her own tour, as her management does everything. TEAM BRITNEY



  18. 18

    um, perez… i just bought tickets to a gaga concert, and those were 250 a pop. and i'm in the nosebleed section.. britney's prices aren't absurd



  19. 19

    good i dont wanna see him anyways, the show should be all Britney
    gaga prices were expensive too.
    these prices are just rumors anyways



  20. 20

    Smart man shes ripping off the fans what a fucking disgrace she is. cant sing cant dance doesnt write or produce her own shit and she going to charge the fools big time to see her ….wake up folks.



  21. 21

    Britney does not need an opening act. She is just PERFECT by herself.



  22. 22

    Are you sure it was because of the ticket prices and not her suck-ass performance on GMA this morning?!?!?!?



  23. 23

    I LIKE BRIT BUT IM NOT THAT STUPED TO PAID 200 FOR LIP SINGING AND NO DANCE SHOW NOT FUCKING WAY I SAVE MY MONEY FOR MADONNAS COMEBACK AND XTINAS NEXT TOUR!!!



  24. 24

    again i agree with perez. brit is stupid and greedy. in these times theres no excuse for being so self indulgent and greedy. but if you are willing to pay those prices to see her then good on her for ripping you off because you deserve it.



  25. 25

    So what if she charges tons of money!! So does everybody else. Maybe Enrique should just team up with somebody that charges under $50 tix! He should have been honored to be able to tour with Britney!



  26. 26

    Lets Have GAGA open…. it would be perfect she can finally see that she is nothing more than a rip off of all the LADIES that have come before….
    Maybe X tina will open with her and those to DIVAs can find away to GAGA down.
    And GAGA charges that much. Also Britney is A STAR. She is worth what ever she charges.



  27. 27

    PEREZ U ARE A NIGHTMARE SERIOUSLY BACK OFF BITCH



  28. 28

    Probably because of GMA. Lower your prices Brit. It's not fair to your fans that are BROKE due to the recession.



  29. 29

    Hell no. I already paid too much once to see her Lip Sync. Never again. Will people really pay that? We will see.



  30. 30

    $346!!! LOL I almost died with laughter…come on girl really to watch your chubby ass lip synch!!! come on boo get real Im a fan but I just go to see some drag queen as Britney then pay that much…same thing you both arent' singing live!!!
    hit me one time with those prices..NOT



  31. 31

    Perez you look like a clown. You say the ticket prices are high yet I don't see you posting all the other pop star concert prices to support your opinion. Just because you think they are high doesn't mean that they are.

  32. pixel says – reply to this


    32

    WHY DO YOU AMERICANS PAY SO MUCH MONEY TO WATCH HER PRETEND TO SING……love….rest of world.



  33. 33

    'Plans called for Iglesias, who is currently on tour in Europe, to be much more than a standard opening act; he was slated to carry full production on the Spears tour. While two such high-profile artists with top-shelf production values was sure to be attractive to fans, such an endeavor is also very expensive to produce.'…. uhm Mario, this is from BILLBOARD, when I clicked on YOUR LINK 'PULLED OUT' !!!! so, it seems that IGLESIAS WAS ADDING ALOT OF THE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ TO THE TOUR, THEREFORE ALOT OF $$$$$$$$$ TO THE TKT PRICES!!!!! The real question Mario, WHY ARE YOU HATING ON BRITNEY ALL OF A SUDDEN???? what did she say no to?



  34. 34

    Britney fans: well, isn't this embarrassing :l ….. The only way this ridiculously overpriced crap show of fake singing and mime dancing could be any better is if you bought 5 of the $6 beers they serve at arenas…so bring cash. Ignorant fools who degrade music by supporting her false-live performances.



  35. 35

    why would anybody pay $96 to $346.50 to listen to Britney's album at full volume?

    you could do that in the comfort of your own home and it's only 12 bucks or whatever the price of her album costs.



  36. 36

    Tickets are expensive I remember I saw JT in concert for $87 Canadian lol. But really Perez I knew it wouldn't take long before you said something bitchy about Britney you never really liked her to begin with the nice thing was just an act.



  37. 37

    Lady Gaga sings live and writes some of her music, she is worth the money some people spend on a night out of drinking and dinner. I also doubt britney takes the time to calculate costs to find the right price to charge. The people calling her fat are just ridiculous. Honestly stop hating other women to make yourself feel better, you just come off sad.



  38. 38

    That's because Enrique thought SHE was going to open for HIM! Why the fuck would Enrique open for that head shaving, lip synching, robot dancing, Fedderlines cum on her lips bad mother?



  39. 39

    I am so shocked to hear people just turn around and talk about Britney's figure, calling her fat and what-not. She is Gorgeous AND an ICON. I have to admit I'm a little sad to hear Enrique won't be touring with Britney anymore it would have been such an EPIC show!! However Britney is AWESOME on her own and I cannot wait to see her



  40. 40

    thats NOT why he pulled out!!! i payed 100$ and got crap gaga seats:) :)



  41. 41

    Wow. This girl must think she is really talented.



  42. 42

    PEOPLE, WHY ARE YOU BRINGING GAGA INTO THIS? Brits ticket prices have nothing to do with her!

    But if you insist on making this an argument, let me just say that Lady Gaga sells tickets for $54.



  43. 43

    Personaly, I am glad he pulled out! He has been around for years…So can you please tell me why he is still opening for people! Its because he is nobody..If he was he would have his own show! Get over it guys you will regret no seeing this show! I bet my bottom dollar on it! With or with out an opening act!



  44. 44

    good i aint wanna see his boring ass anyways! lmao black eyed peas should come on board, or nicole scherzinger.



  45. 45

    Perez the cheapest ticket at the verizon center in washinton,DC is like 29 dollers and some change!!



  46. 46

    I misunderstood - I thought she was the opening act for Enrique Iglesias!

  47. 6one9 says – reply to this


    47

    Brit best step up her game or she won't be selling 1/2 her venues. Her dancing is fucking horrible. Get back into the dance studio Brit ““ is ALL I'm gonna say!!



  48. 48

    Have Rebecca Black open with Friday, followed by Willow Smith Hair song! hahaha



  49. 49

    Why would Enrique open for Britney, she should be opening for the handsome papasito!!!!!!



  50. 50

    considering ticketmaster has only posted one date in NEW effing YORK! we don't actually know the ticket prices. they vary in different areas and arenas… plus they are doing a estimate the tour was just announced today…



  51. 51

    Re: WTFungus – if they put the videos on with the sound down and play the new record its the same thing as going to a show and they have 300.00 bucks in the bank.



  52. 52

    well, it is true she doesn't sing live and now can't move at all, so why pay her all that money, donate to Japan instead!



  53. 53

    Re: Koala Bear – Then you either were very late with ordering them (few left, prices go up) or you got ripped off. Prices always differ greatly from city to city though, or even from country to country.



  54. 54

    I'll stick to the old tried and true The Eagles or Billy Joel. Real music.



  55. 55

    Perez - you might want to do a little fact-checking before you go on tirades about Britney's tickets prices. According to the Verizon Center website (for her Washington, D.C. tour stop), tickets start at $29.50 and go up from there. The prices you are seeing on Ticketmaster are for the Pre-Sale, in which only a limited number of tickets are released at certain price points.



  56. 56

    Why not Kylie Minogue, if Enrique is out? She has expressed interest in doing a duet with Brit… could be a killer Babe-fest concert tour.



  57. 57

    I wouldn't see her in "concert" for free, let alone pay those ridiculous prices. If I'm gonna part with my money, it'll be for someone who is actually talented and entertaining. This fat chimp in a corset is sad.



  58. 58

    Im pretty sure Heidi Montag would do! lol.
    Being serious, those ticket charges are cheap compared to the other pop artists that are currently mainstream. The only problem is that if at least she could put HELL OF a SHOW, but since cant be sure you cannot be bother to pay that amount to go see her dance stiff and lip-synch. If her show is gona be visualy great like Kylie Minogue shows are then no way.



  59. 59

    Re: Mikel Johnsan – $200 is her most expensive ticket, Gaga wouldn't leave her fans broke and give them a halfass performance, try again



  60. 60

    Re: GovtH00K3R – PEOPLE ARE BRINGING GAGA INTO THIS BECAUSE PEREZ HAS HIS HEAD SO FAR UP HER ASS THAT HE LETS HER GET AWAY WITH THINGS THAT HE DOESN'T LET OTHER PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH. SO YES, GAGA DOES HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS. IT'S CALLED CALLING HIM OUT ON HIS BIAS AND DOUBLE STANDARDS.



  61. 61

    Re: hung37

    LOL! hung you are a trip. I actually listened to the single and like it. The visuals….not so much. The whole "666" thing was already done in Gregg Araki's "The Doom Generation" (1995)



  62. 62

    Re: robert26101 – OH REALLY? SHOCKING TO HEAR THAT PEREZ DIDN'T FACT CHECK BEFORE TALKING SHIT.



  63. 63

    Re: Andree Leiva – those are not going to sell out. with the economy the way it is, do you honestly think girls (and their parents $) would spend 96$ to see her lip sync… in the nose bleeds… don't think so. and even with enrique iglesias on the tour (even though he's not anymore), it doesn't mean prices will be cut in half. ALSO, i'm seeing Kanye and Cudi together at a concert and their most expensive tickets are 100. So yeah, think again.



  64. 64

    You pay that much to much someone who doesn't actually perform live? Might as well go to a drag show..



  65. 65

    I will be there!! Hopefully they find a better act to open for her. I was not excited when I seen Enrique was touring with her. I figured I'd wait in the 5 hour long womens bathroom line, grab my alcohol at concession, sit in my seat, drink and talk until he left the stage. He had one hit like 15 years ago and his newest song is too young for him!! I would only want to see him sing Bailamos and then i would want him to exit the stage.



  66. 66

    thank god he pulled out
    what a dumb move to even think britney's fan would want him in it!

    we would PAY TWICE this avarage price to see our beloved brit brit



  67. 67

    STFU about her ticket prices!!! OMG it's getting annoying. Are you going to go watch her show? Probably not. So sit your stupid ass down.



  68. 68

    Re: canadianvi – Shut the fuck up and get the fuck off



  69. 69

    I Love Enrique, i like britney too but i dont think shes ready for a comeback
    the Only person i would pay to see in concert is MICHAEL BUBLE
    He Sings Live And His Songs are Amazing :D



  70. 70

    It's funny how u pick and choose your arguments Mario…Gaga's tickets were going for about $200…Why isn't that ridiculous???



  71. 71

    perez, dear. gaga charges more or less the same for her tickets. so why is it ok for her and not for britney? personally i think concerts have become way too overpriced for what they are. that's why i stick with seeing the people who aren't big names. it's much more personal and enjoyable (and cheap) that way.



  72. 72

    I'll do it!



  73. 73

    Re: Mikel Johnsan – you cant knock Gaga's ticket prices, she puts on a BADASS 2 hour show and she sings LIVE! so yea. its worth it!

    she dances, sings live and has badass openers AND a badass show!



  74. 74

    Re: Mikel Johnsan – GaGa sings and puts on a decent show.\
    Britney on the other hand SUCKS!



  75. 75

    omg HELL YES! I WOULD TOTALLY SPEND THAT MUCH IF NSYNC OPENED FOR HER!



  76. 76

    i watched madonna last two concert….. the cheapest tix…..$50. are brit brit and gag gag better than her?



  77. 77

    Hey Perez,
    Hope your day is going good. But I just wanted to tell you that I have professional connections associated with the tour, nothing big but I know some info. Enrique was supposed to co-headline with Britney, which was supposed to be great until Enrique demanded a lot of money. Not that he should cause he is preety big, but Britney got so upset cause 100 dollars for a ticket is absolutely absurd. They've decided to part ways, and there is now two options, to just have a smaller band perform or possible JHUD! Just wanted to clear that up! Happy belated birthday!



  78. 78

    Ugh - disgusted! She can't sing, and she can no longer dance like she used to. How can she justify these prices? With that being said - replace the headliner "Britney" with Madonna with the same prices and then people will probably go (without an opener too). LOL.



  79. 79

    and I expect the Chris Brown announcement in about 5..4..3..2..



  80. 80

    I don't know why people would pay so much to see Britney she doesn't sing live or isn't even a good dancer. I saw her in Australia and got tickets for $150 gold seats and it wasn't worth it. She didn't pump up the crowd all she said was at the end "I hope that you all enjoyed the show". That's all interaction she had with 18,000 people.
    A security guard who worked for her said that she was rude and didn't make any kind of conversation with anybody in Perth who worked for her. Far as I am concerned she should be happy to have any fans.



  81. 81

    WHO THE FUCK IS ENRIQUE IGLESIAS? I ONLY WANT TO SEE QUEEN BRITNEY!!!

    86

    Re: badboy09 – Ton answer your question…

    1. He would not be opening for her, he would be co-headlining. That means they it would be both their tour and would share an equal billing and amount of time on stage.

    2. He's been selling out arenas in the US and worldwide since before Britney was singing. The US dates on his current world tour were all sold out.



  87. 87

    now why in the world would anyone pay that much to see some lazy peice of trash with her fat ass hanging out of her costume who DOESNT sing, and barely dances, woddling around on stage attempting to "perform" songs she didnt write that are autotuned to hell?



  88. 88

    LEONA LEWIS please!!!!!! but brit may not wanna follow someone who can actually sing really awesomely



  89. 89

    nicki minaj.



  90. 90

    Brit Brit and Gaga can kiss my a**… Well I prefer Gaga, she can sing life and perform… Brit Brit just do Playback and bounces a littlebit bit… I agree more with the 200$ for Gaga, then 3xx$ for Britney… And Femme Fatal is realy em… I'm missing Brit on this Record… And all u Haters out there… dont bitch around and be realistic… come on…



  91. 91

    I wouldn't want to pay that much to see her bounce up and down and lip sync. I'll go watch drag queens mime her songs. they put on a better show anyway.



  92. 92

    OMG THAT IS EXPENSIVE!! LOL BUT I LOVE BOTH OF THEM



  93. 93

    Why would he open for Britney? He's already an established superstar. It's not like he's a nobody who needs promotion from Britney or her team.
