Popstar Jennifer Lopez is to embark on a tour alongside her husband Marc Anthony.

The pair will co-headline dates in North America, Canada and Puerto Rico, kicking off on September 29th.

During the shows Lopez and Anthony will perform separate sets and their own joint material with songs in both English and Spanish.

Funds from the shows will be given to a charity campaign to reduce childhood obesity which is supported by Lopez.

"We really need to be active in encouraging healthy eating and the joys and fun of exercising," the singer said.

Commenting on the forthcoming live shows, Anthony told Billboard that as his wife had never toured he could "step in and say 'Oh my god, this could be fun'".

Lopez has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide and has starred in a number of Hollywood movies.

Her husband Anthony has also sold over ten million records and has won three Latin Grammy Awards for his shows.
