Shakira’s fans have a new, golden opportunity to see her perform live.
The 40-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter announced Tuesday she will visit 33 cities in Europe and North America on the first leg of her El Dorado World Tour, set to kick off Nov. 8 in Cologne, Germany, before wrapping up in Las Vegas on Feb. 10. Other notable stops include Paris (Nov. 10), Madrid (Nov. 19), Milan (Dec. 3), Miami (Jan. 12), New York City (Jan. 17), Toronto (Jan. 20), and Los Angeles (Feb. 1).
“Thank you all so much for listening to my music in so many places around the world. I can’t wait to be onstage again singing along with all of you, all of your favorites and mine,” Shakira said in a statement. “It’s going to be fun! The road to El Dorado starts now!”
A press release indicates Latin American dates are to be announced in the future.
The concert series — produced by Live Nation and presented by Rakuten — supports Shakira’s latest album, El Dorado, a multi-lingual studio collection that features collaborations with well-known international artists such as MAGIC!, Maluma, Nicky Jam, Carlos Vives, Cashmere Cat, Prince Royce, and French rapper Black M.
One month after its worldwide release on May 26, El Dorado currently sits atop Billboard’s Latin Albums chart. Its success has thus far been fueled by two singles: “Chantaje” and “Me Enamoré,” the music video for which featured Shakira’s partner, soccer star Gerard Piqué.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday at 10 a.m. local time. Citi cardholders can access presale tickets in the U.S. from Tuesday at 10 a.m. through Thursday at 10 p.m. via Citi’s Private Pass program.
