Jennifer Lopez to make first-ever Milwaukee stop with Summerfest gig

Between a high-profile engagement to Alex Rodriguez and turning 50 this summer, it's set to be a big year for Jennifer Lopez. And you can add another big milestone to that list as she announced a North American tour – complete with her first ever stop in Milwaukee for a headliner gig at Summerfest on July 3.

Lopez made the birthday tour announcement – her first tour since 2012 – during an appearance last month on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," complete with a full list of dates reported by People Magazine. (For those wondering, her birthday is in July ... but on the 24th, not the 3rd.) According to People, surprise guest performers from Lopez's NBC TV competition show "World of Dance" will join the pop star on her "It's My Party: The Live Celebration" tour.

How this slipped through the cracks – for a month! – we don't know. Better late than never though, especially since Lopez marks the first solo female headliner to be announced thus far for the 2019 Big Gig. (Bluegrass singer Alison Krauss is one of several acts during the Outlaw Country Festival, while Julien Baker serves as an opener for Bon Iver.)

No information on tickets has been announced yet, but stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more details. After this news and Summerfest's earlier Lionel Richie announcement, here's the current Big Gig lineup:

June 26: Thomas Rhett
June 27: The Outlaw Music Festival
June 28: Jason Aldean
June 29: Bon Iver
June 30: Zac Brown Band
July 2: Lionel Richie
July 3: Jennifer Lopez
July 4: Ozzy Osbourne
July 5: The Killers/Death Cab for Cutie
July 6: TBA
July 7: TBA
