Fans of Jennifer Lopez in China will get a rare chance to see their idol, when the Latin pop diva makes her debut public appearance on the mainland. She will be performing her Dance Again World Tour concert in Shanghai.

Initially, the Asia-tour only covered cities in Malaysia, the Philippines and the United Arab Emirates. Media Asia, an entertainment company, managed to add Shanghai to the list.

It's still about 10 days before the show, but 90 percent of the tickets are sold out. The most expensive tickets were the first to sell out, according to Zhu Guang, a spokeswoman for Media Asia.

Lopez, also known as J Lo, kicked off the tour in June, her first headlining concert tour with Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias.

The tour began in Panama and traveled across Latin America, before Lopez headed back to North America on July 14. The tour continues with shows in Asia and Europe, before concluding in Brisbane, Australia, on Dec 18.

The Shanghai gig will present the visual audio extravaganza of Dance Again. Zhu says, to ensure the show's quality, all the stage props, audio facilities and other equipment, will come from the previous concert stop of Dubai via airfreight, and re-installed in Shanghai.

The 43-year-old Lopez has enjoyed international fame since 2001, when her album J.Lo was released in the same week as her film premiere of The Wedding Planner.

Her music style has been perceived as pop and Latin pop, dance, funk and R&B. Her albums - in English and Spanish - have sold over 11.8 million copies in the United States and more than 70 million worldwide.

She has been described as a sex symbol and her body type has received a large amount of attention, especially her buttocks and famed curves. There is a rumor that she has insured her buttocks, which have been called the world's most famous butt.

Lopez was temporarily low profile in the music scene from 2007 to 2011, when she was one of the judges on singing competition American Idol.

After her successful comeback, her new single On the Floor became an international hit. This year, she judged American Idol again, and launched a new talent show in Spanish, The Chosen.

She has been a fashion designer and entrepreneur, with her signature perfumes sold internationally.
