Shakira announces new U.S. and European tour dates
UPI News Service, 12/28/2017
Shakira has announced new dates for the European and North American legs of her El Dorado world tour.
The singer postponed the tour in November due to lingering complications from a vocal cord hemorrhage.
"To my dear fans and friends, I wanted to write one more letter to express my gratitude to all of you for the immeasurable love and support that you have sent me these past few weeks," Shakira wrote on Instagram Wednesday.
"You have made me feel that my voice is not only mine but also yours, and that it has a purpose. There were times when your prayers and messages of affection and encouragement along with those of my family were the only thing buoying my spirits," she continued.
"Thankfully, I am so relieved and happy to share with you that I will be getting back on the road in June 2018 with my El Dorado World Tour in Europe, and the U.S., with Latin America dates to be announced soon."
The El Dorado tour will now begin in Europe on June 5 in Cologne, Germany, until July 7 in Barcelona.
The U.S. leg will begin Aug. 3 in Chicago before wrapping up Sept. 6 in San Jose, Calif.
Other notable dates include performances in Paris, Milan, Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas and Las Vegas.
Shakira was originally set to perform in Germany in November before heading to Chicago in January.
The venture is in support of her latest album, El Dorado, which was released in May.
