J-Lo and Enrique Iglesias tour coming to Chicago, Haley Reinhart appearing in Arlington Heights, Jennifer Hudson shops at Mark Shale

Get ready, Chicago. Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias are bringing their co-headlining tour to the Windy City, and you know it’s going to be muy caliente! But will Chicagoans go loco for a Lopez-Iglesias show during Lollapalooza weekend or will the sexy Latin pop stars end up feeling salty – or should I say spicy?

(Sorry. I’ve been watching a lot of “Access Hollywood” lately. I’ll stop.)

Lopez and Iglesias will play the United Center August 3, part of a 20-city summer tour that begins in Montreal July 14. The opening act will be reggaeton duo Wisin Y Yandel, who have headlined the Allstate Arena in the past and are normally too famous to be an opening act, but are likely trying to introduce their music to a non-Spanish speaking audience.

Tickets go on sale Friday.

And if you want to catch Iglesias before then, he’s one of many acts performing May 18 at 103.5 KISS FM’s Fantabuloso show at Allstate Arena.

By the numbers: Fans were required to purchase a bottle of Snooki’s tanning lotion to guarantee a photo opportunity with the “Jersey Shore” star last Saturday at Ultimate Exposure tanning salon in Hoffman Estates. How much does her tanning lotion cost? Between $58-$65.

Heads up: “American Idol” alums Haley Reinhart (season 10), Blake Lewis (season 6) and Kimberly Caldwell (season 2) will appear at the grand opening of AT&T’s Retail Innovation Center in Arlington Heights Thursday. … Deadmau5 will DJ at Paris Club’s upstairs lounge, Studio Paris, Saturday. ... "American Pie" actor Chris Klein will host Party in the Penthouse, which celebrates the Spring issue of Men's Book, May 10 at the Ritz-Carlton Residences. The party is by invitation only.

On the record: "We were really struggling. It wasn't fun, and it wasn't as natural as it should be, as it was in the beginning. I could've kept the band together and it could've seemed all nice and cozy, but the reality is I would've been miserable.” – Barrington native William Beckett talks to billboard.com about the break-up of The Academy Is… Beckett recently released his first solo EP, “Walk the Talk.”

Sightings: Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson was spotted at Mark Shale in 900 North Michigan Shops Sunday. ... Actors Nathan Lane and Kelsey Grammer shopped, separately, at Tails in the City in the Gold Coast last week. … The Bears’ Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall were hanging out at Board Room Thursday. … Former "Nip/Tuck" actor Dylan Walsh had dinner with his family at Tavern On Rush Thursday.

Watch this: As I mentioned on Twitter last night, I’m a huge Batman nerd. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: “A pro-wrestling fan who also likes superheroes? You’re kidding.” Anyway, I’m more excited than a grown man should be about “The Dark Knight Rises” and will probably go into more detail the closer we get to the film’s release, but for now here is the latest trailer for the film.
