The shows are put on by Nomadic Entertainment, which has announced “Nomadic At The Armory” Feb. 1-4 and “Club Nomadic at Mystic Lake Casino” Feb. 1-4. Chainsmokers (Feb. 1) and Florida Georgia Line (Feb. 3) have been announced for Club Nomadic, while Lopez is the only announcement for the Armory so far.
Presale for The Chainsmokers begins Nov. 30, while Florida Georgia Line is already on sale, with the GA tickets costing $200 each.
A Feb. 4 ” VIP Post-Game Party” has been announced for the Armory but no details are provided yet. The Armory, built in 1935 as a training facility for the Minnesota National Guard, was used as a parking garage for decades but has been turned into a 9,000-capacity concert space just in time for the Super Bowl festivities.
Feb. 4’s big game, at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, will feature Justin Timberlake during the halftime show. Also previously announced, and unrelated to the Nomadic shows, was that Dave Matthews would play Feb. 3 at the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul.
J-Lo’s DirecTV Now performance from the Armory will air live on the AT&T Audience Network via DirecTV. Ticket onsale has not been announced yet.
Lopez, who has been doing a Vegas residency at The Axis At Planet Hollywood since 2016, is shooing a film called “Second Act,” and working on separate Spanish- and English-language albums.
The native Puerto Rican recently pledged her own money as well as helped raise millions for disaster relief following Hurricane Maria, which devastated the island.
Recent box office reports submitted to Pollstar from the Axis shows include Sept. 27-30, which sold 11,408 tickets total and grossed more than $2.1 million, Sept. 20-23, which moved 11,980 tickets and grossed $2.37 million and Sept. 13-16, which reported 12,972 tickets sold and grossed $2.71 million.
Her “Dance Again World Tour” in 2012 included Enrique Iglesias for the North American leg, and was strong enough that both the co-bill and Lopez’s solo runs made Pollstar’s Year End Top 100 Tours chart, with No. 46 for the solo tour and No. 64 for the co-headline North American run.
