and husband Marc Anthony will co-headline their first tour together this fall.
The occasion will mark Lopez's first-ever live concert road trip.
The couple, both 38, will perform separate sets of their own material and will also duet together, and each set will include songs in English and Spanish, according to representatives for the duo.
Lopez – who was paid more than $1.2 million to perform a 40-minute set at a Russian millionaire's birthday party in April
– and Anthony also plan to use their live musical debut together to highlight the problem of childhood obesity in the Latino community.
"When I was a kid, we spent most of our time outside visiting in the neighborhood with friends. This is the first generation of kids who are so sedentary and the first whose parents might outlive them," Lopez said in a statement. "We really need to be active in encouraging healthy eating and the joys and fun of exercising."
The headliners will donate one dollar from every ticket sold to the ING Run For Something Better, a kids' fitness program that aims to reduce childhood obesity by introducing youngsters to the benefits of running, physical fitness, and healthy lifestyle choices.
Further details regarding concert dates in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico will be released next week, though the promoter, Live Nation, has confirmed that the multi-city event will kick off Sept. 29 in Atlantic City. Tickets go on sale Aug. 10.
