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.

More than 10,000 fans, many of them teenagers, cheered and danced the night away at a Damascus performance by Enrique Iglesias, the first concert by a Western pop singer in Syria in more than 30 years. The 32-year-old Latin heartthrob charmed his audience with many of his hits, including "Hero," "Escape," "Love to See You Cry" and "Just Wanna Be With You," as well as songs from his new album, "Insomniac."

A true romantic can give affection just as easily as he receives it. So the most memorable moments of Enrique Iglesias' performance Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium weren't musical, and they didn't come during those long periods when throngs of excited women rushed the stage. They came instead when the singer showed he was actually paying attention to the immediate needs of his fans.

For the most compelling and consistently satisfying live show in Latin pop today, look no further than Enrique Iglesias. He's the real thing. He doesn't possess the sheer charisma of a Luis Miguel or the superior repertoire of Ricky Martin, but Iglesias showed Thursday at the Universal Amphitheatre that he can outshine them both, thanks to the most effective weapon available to a live performer: the human touch.

The women in the capacity crowd Friday night at the Pond of Anaheim were squealing even before Spanish pop darling Enrique Iglesias stepped on stage. As waves of flashing lights signaled the start of the nearly two-hour concert, fans, young and old, hooped and hollered so loudly that you'd couldn't imagine the volume increasing even when the 22-year-old singer actually appeared. But it did.

"If you leave/You'll take my heart with you/And without you/I don't know which way to go" is the translation of the opening lines of the first single from Enrique Iglesias' debut album. Or how about: "To kiss your mouth/deserves a hallelujah," from Chein Garcia's "Experiencia religiosa" (Religious Experience)? That's about all you need to know about this album of standard, predictable romantic ballads, written mainly by noted producer Rafael Perez-Botija.

The goal of the inaugural Veranazo 2002 festival Saturday at Dodger Stadium was to deliver an over-the-top, multiple-course musical feast that would outdo all other Latin-music events. And indeed, its Pantagruelian excesses resulted in the kind of sonic satiation that Latin music fans tend to savor. The six-hour show, organized by the radio station conglomerate Hispanic Broadcasting Corp.

TELEVISION Lots More Late Nights: Jay Leno has signed to continue hosting NBC's "Tonight Show" through the end of 2005. The deal means that Leno's guaranteed term of office is longer than that of his most frequent comedy target, George W. Bush, whose first term as president will end in January 2005. "I love this job," said Leno, chosen over David Letterman as Johnny Carson's successor in 1993. "The negotiations took 20 minutes. . . . I said, 'Yeah, let's do it. Tack on as many years as you want.'

It is like a dream, this moment: To be alone in a luxurious Beverly Hills hotel suite with Enrique Iglesias, the door's "privacy" button engaged, all 6 feet, 2 inches of the 24-year-old superstar draped sensually over his chair. OK, maybe he's tired. He does spend only about four days a month at the Miami home he shares with a dog named Grammy. (Girrrl, he's s-s-s-single!) But the delusional romantic in you prefers to think he's probably just, you know, happy to see you.

Enrique Iglesias poses reluctantly for a photograph by Biscayne Bay. "I hate having my picture taken," he grimaces. "Always. It was worse when I was a kid, because then I didn't have to. Now I have to." He shifts his weight self-consciously, looking moody and dark, every inch the Latin heartthrob--except he's wearing jeans, a hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap. He soon gets bored with this, and starts talking. "When I first went on television, I went like this, in jeans, and they just flipped.

Although he has spent a great part of his life beating up people for a living, Oscar De La Hoya has always harbored dreams of singing tender ballads of romantic love. That's what the boxing hero confesses in the liner notes of his debut album, and in a turn of events that is downright surreal in its unexpectedness, the former welterweight champion has delivered a perfectly respectable, undeniably legitimate collection of Latin pop.
