Shakira postpones US, European 2018 tour dates

The singer needs to recover for her vocal cords

Shakira has been forced to postpone the U.S. and European legs of her El Dorado World Tour due to doctors orders. The Latin singer spend the next few months working towards recovery in order for her vocal cords to be in optimal condition for touring. The tour was to kick off in January but has been pushed to June 2018. Tickets will be valid for the new date in each city or can be refunded at point of purchase, if needed.

“While disappointed to not be able 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,” tour promoter Live Nation states in a press release. “Please see below for new European and U.S. tour dates, and we thank you again for your understanding.”

Mexico and Latin America show dates are forthcoming.
