JEDDAH: Doctors have advised Shakira not to perform in the first concert of her “El Dorado World Tour” which was scheduled to be held on Nov. 8, according to Sayidaty and Hello magazines.
The 40-year-old singing sensation announced the news through her official account on Instagram saying she has pain in her vocal cords preventing her from holding the concert on time.
Shakira said: “My doctors have ordered me on vocal rest to avoid any greater damage that could keep me from performing.”
The El Dorado World Tour is the upcoming sixth world tour by the Colombian singer, and will be staged in support of her 11th studio album “El Dorado.” Comprising 36 shows so far, the tour will visit Europe and North America, with confirmed Latin American dates to be announced later.
The pop star also wrote a message which she posted on both her official website on Nov. 7 and her Instagram account in both English and Spanish.
“I am focusing on recovering now to be able to kick off on November 10th in Paris, as soon as I get the green light from my doctors,” she shared. “Thanks as always from the bottom of my heart for all the support and love you’ve shown me heading into this tour. I hope to make it worth the wait and see you all very soon!”
Shakira was rumored to have separated from her lover Barcelona player Gerard Pique. Gerard Piqué Bernabéu is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a center-back for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team.
