Enrique Iglesias Drops Out Of Britney Tour; Ego Couldn’t Handle It

Enrique Iglesias was announced yesterday as the opening act for Britney Spears upcoming tour.....and today...he backed out.  The reason?  His ego couldn't handle being her opening act.

Enrique wanted equal billing with Britney as to be co-headliners.  My understanding of a co-headliner is sometimes Britney would be the first act.  That would not be happening.  The agreement was being worked on for weeks with the understanding of the co-headliner.

When it was announced on Good Morning America yesterday, it was made obvious to everyone that Enrique was the supporting act.  So, he dropped out.  Big mistake.

Britney's last tour in 2009 generated $131 million dollars in revenue and we also heard that Enriwue was going to be paid quite a pretty penny....not pesos. 

Plus, Enrique could have been upstaging her every night as he actually sings.  Britney does something..not sure how live it is though.

The Britney tour will kick off in Sacramento, California June 17th.  No replacement act has been named for Enrique yet.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Not Britney's Hero

  1. How did this even come about….I don’t get the connection. For the most part they draw a different type of demo. I am glad he droped out. And another thing my papi is no opening act he is the act.

  2. Ha, what a punk. Even if he was billed as “Co-headliner,” he would still have to perform FIRST. So what’s the difference? He would STILL be OPENING for Britney every single night because when it comes to the size of her stage setup, there is NO WAY she could ever go on first.

  3. I don’t blame him. She wanted him to cut his act and stage show and he didn’t want to get rid of some of his performers. I respect him for that. I don’t really think it was ego……
