She is the only artist from South America to have a number one song in the US, and has had four of the 20 top-selling hits of the last decade. At the age of 18, she founded the Pies Descalzos (Barefoot) Foundation which currently provides education and nutrition to over six thousand impoverished children in Colombia and is expanding its work to other countries, including newly launched projects in Haiti and South Africa. In October 2011, Shakira was named a member of President Obama’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.
Shakira served as coach on the 4th and 6th season of “The Voice,” NBC’s hit reality vocal competition series that searches for the nation’s best voice. Her tenth studio album “Shakira” was released in 2014, featuring hits such as “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” with Rihanna and “La La La (Brazil 2014)” which she performed at the finals of Fifa’s World Cup 2014 in Brazil. In 2016, she starred as Gazelle in Disney’s record-breaking film “Zootopia,” as well as contributing to its soundtrack with “Try Everything”. In June, she launched “La Bicicleta” with fellow Colombian artist Carlos Vives, which broke records in Colombia when it remained #1 for 18 consecutive weeks and spent 13 weeks at #1 in Spain, as well as reaching #1 on US Latin iTunes. The video, shot in Shakira and Carlos’s hometowns of Barranquilla and Santa Marta, respectively, has over 900 million views on Vevo to date. It was followed up by the seductive track “Chantaje” (Blackmail) feat. Maluma. With over 1.1 billion views on YouTube, it is one of the platform’s biggest Latin hits in history. It also reached #1 on the “Latin Airplay” chart and was certified Double Platinum in Spain. Shakira recently released her 11th studio album, “El Dorado” which was recorded primarily in Spanish. Upon release, the album charted #1 on iTunes in 37 Countries.

Shakira viaja con su Dorado
“Gracias a todos por escuchar mi música en tantos lugares del mundo. Tengo muchas ganas de estar en el escenario de nuevo cantando con ustedes. ¡Va a ser muy divertido! ¡El camino a El Dorado comienza ahora!”, decía la cantante al presentar el álbum. La gira era inminente.
Y aquí está. El Dorado World Tour comenzará el 8 de noviembre en Colonia, Alemania. A partir de ahí, 30 fechas en las que Shakira cantará en Europa y Estados Unidos (se subirá a templos de la música como el AccorHotels Arena de París y el Madison Square Garden de Nueva York). Así hasta febrero. Y no acabará ahí. Más adelante anunciará fechas por Latino América.
Será una gira muy especial para Shakira porque, tal y como le confesó a Xavi Martínez en el #RealShakira, se llevará a sus hijos con ella. “Quiero compartir con mis hijos mi trabajo, mi música. Quiero que salgan conmigo de gira, eso es lo próximo que vamos a hacer”, decía.
El Dorado ya nos hacía bailar antes de publicarse. Chantaje (con Maluma), La Bicicleta (con Carlos Vives) o Me enamoré ya se convirtieron en éxitos. Era el aperitivo de un disco redondo. El número 11 de su carrera.Y ha batido récords:a las pocas horas de publicarse se convirtió en #1 en iTunes en 37 países, ha consiguió 5 de los 10 primeros puestos en las listas y se ha convertido en 5 veces Platino. ¡Casi nada!
¡Ahora vamos a poder disfrutar de los temas de este disco y de los éxitos más importantes de su discografía en esta gira! ¡No te quedes sin tu entrada!
