SHOW UPDATE: Shakira’s doctors have determined that she needs to spend the next few months working towards recovery in order for her vocal cords to be in optimal condition for touring, and as such we are obliged to postpone the U.S. leg of the “El Dorado World Tour,” scheduled to make a stop in Phoenix on Saturday, February 3rd. The new rescheduled date is Sunday, August 26th. Tickets will be valid for the new date or can be refunded at point of purchase if needed.
Though it has been a difficult time for Shakira, she is on her way towards recovering her voice fully and we are pleased to announce new dates for both the U.S. and European legs, beginning in June 2018. Please note Mexico and Latin America show dates are forthcoming.
While disappointed to not be able to be to perform in January as scheduled, Shakira is happy to be able to get back on the road by summer with her best show yet, and remains incredibly grateful for all the loyalty, patience and support her fans have shown her. Please see below for new European and U.S. tour dates, and we thank you again for your understanding.
