ONCE more – this time with feeling. Fans of Jennifer Lopez will be hoping she puts more effort into her forthcoming gig here than she did for a short video promoting it.

The singer performs at the O2 on October 19, and the 43-year-old has recorded a video message for her fans.

The clip – which lasts all of seven seconds - sees J-Lo telling fans that she just cannot wait to see them at The O2 in Dublin next Friday.

But while she may have made some good videos, but this one falls short when it comes to igniting much enthusiasm for her imminent arrival.

The star races through a brief greeting - before assuring us that she's "looking forward to seeing us all there".

In fact, the video, which was posted over a month ago, has received fewer than 200 YouTube hits. Not exactly impressive, especially considering she’s a global superstar.

Despite the lacklustre promo, J-Lo’s global Dance Again Tour is wowing audiences around the world. Lopez performed in front of 50,000 fans in Baku in Azerbaijan.

Her management company have modestly stated that it was a concert that ‘brought an audience to their feet and changed a country forever.”

The video seems unlikely to have a similar impact on Ireland. Comments Facility
