Shakira Announces El Dorado World Tour

Twelve-time GRAMMYÂź Award-winner and international superstar Shakira has announced plans to embark on her EL DORADO WORLD TOUR, presented by Rakuten. The tour, produced by Live Nation, will feature many of her catalog hits and kicks off on November 8th in Cologne, Germany. It will feature stops throughout Europe and the US including Paris’ AccorHotels Arena and New York’s Madison Square Garden. A Latin American leg of the tour will be announced at a later date.

“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. It’s going to be fun! The road to El Dorado starts now!” Shakira said.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of Shakira’s 11th studio album release, EL DORADO, which hit #1 on iTunes in 37 countries and held 5 of the top 10 spots on the iTunes Latino Chart within hours of its release. The 5x platinum album, including her already massive global hits – “La Bicicleta,” “Chantaje,” “Me EnamorĂ©,” and “DĂ©jĂ  vu”- currently holds the top spot on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums, marking her 6th #1 album on this chart. Her single, “Chantaje” featuring Maluma, is 16x diamond certified, while its video currently has been viewed over 1.4 billion times, making it the #5 fastest video to reach 1 billion views worldwide and working its way to soon be the most viewed video of her entire catalogue.

Tickets for the EL DORADO WORLD TOUR go on-sale to the general public beginning Friday, June 30th at 10am local time. CitiÂź is the official presale credit card for the U.S. leg of the EL DORADO WORLD TOUR. As such, CitiÂź cardmembers will have access to purchase U.S. presale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 27th at 10am local time until Thursday, June 29th at 10pm local time through Citi’s Private PassÂź program.

On her first-ever partnership with Rakuten, Shakira commented, “I’m so excited to be announcing the EL DORADO WORLD TOUR, I feel this will be my best tour yet, and am thrilled to be supported by such an amazing partner as Rakuten, with whom I share the same values!”

Global internet services leader, Rakuten Inc, with over 70 services and one billion members across e-commerce, digital contents and fintech businesses, will be the sole presenting sponsor of the El Dorado World Tour. Rakuten is known for its support of major music and sporting events in Japan and around the world but this will be its first sponsorship of a pop star of Shakira’s global standing, a bold new step aimed at boosting Rakuten’s global branding, customer & community engagement.
