However, just hours after Spears made the very public announcement, Iglesias dropped off the tour even though he was supposed to be co-headlining with Spears!
"Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together," a spokesperson for Iglesias said. "Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album Euphoria. Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone."
The solo tour Iglesias' rep is referring to is the one he is currently in Europe doing right now - that would last until just six days before Brit's tour starts! Britney's rep has not commented yet, although her camp promises a statement soon. There has also been no word from Live Nation, the tour's promoter.
However, according to E!, a source close to the tour said that Enrique was figuring out some scheduling conflicts for a few tour dates when the press release stating he would be doing the tour was sent out prematurely.
Whatever the reason may be, we're sure Britney will still put on a rockin' tour and find another artist to hit the road with her this summer!
Why do you think Enrique Iglesias backed out!?
