Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias’ Sunday concert at Anaheim’s Honda Center has been canceled.

The two are currently co-anchoring a tour -- Iglesias’ first joint venture and the first headlining outing for Lopez -- which is scheduled to roll into the Southland with a pair of shows in Anaheim and Los Angeles.

Show promoter AEG Live announced late Monday that Sunday’s Anaheim show was nixed.

The tour's other three area concerts -- Saturday’s show and two at Staples Center scheduled for next weekend -- will be performed as originally planned.

Fans who purchased tickets for Sunday’s show can exchange them for one of the other L.A. area shows, which could prove a logistical nightmare considering both venues have comparable capacities. Refunds through Ticketmaster or original point of purchase are also available.

After the pair announced their joint trek in April, additional dates were added to their itinerary “due to overwhelming demand and sold out shows,” including second nights in Los Angeles, Anaheim, New Jersey, Toronto and Montreal, plus additional cities including Las Vegas, Minneapolis and Uncasville, Conn.

No reason for the cancellation was given. Their joint outing wraps Sept. 2 in Orlando before Lopez, who recently announced she wouldn’t return to her post as an “American Idol” judge, goes on a solo leg in Europe and Asia that is set to conclude in Manila at the end of November.
