05/21/2010 11:14 AM - May 21, 2010 - INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR SHAKIRA ANNOUNCES 2010 GLOBAL TOUR KICKING OFF IN NORTH AMERICA

Shakira, one of the most exciting and successful global artists in recent history, with more than 214 global award nominations and more than 50 million albums sold worldwide, has announced her 2010 global tour and her highly anticipated return to North America. The Live Nation produced summer tour will visit Corpus Christi on October 5th. In addition, the tour will bring her spectacular show to top arenas and a host of additional cities throughout the summer and fall. Additional dates to be announced soon.

Shakira Fan Club members will have exclusive access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 1st at 12 noon local time. Additional fan club information is available at Shakira.com. Citi® cardmembers will also have access to presale tickets beginning Wednesday, June 2nd at 10am local time through Citi's Private Pass® Program.

Shakira has toured the United States just twice in her career, first in 2002 for the “Tour of the Mongoose” and again in 2006 for the “Oral Fixation,” Tour which grossed more than $100 million. The Washington Post raved about her 2006 tour saying, “Shakira doesn’t need much to take it to the rafters. No pyrotechnics, no army of back up dancers, no elaborate staging – not even a pair of shoes. Just her charisma, pipes and hips.”

In keeping with Shakira’s inspired originality, as well as her sensual rhythms and deliciously unpredictable spirit, the tour promises to push the limits of the live concert experience, bringing fans a pulsating spectacle crossing all musical boundaries.

In addition to her summer tour, Shakira will take the stage at some of the year’s hottest summer festivals including London’s legendary Glastonbury Festival and Rock In Rio in Lisbon and Madrid. Shakira ’s song, Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) has also been selected as the official anthem of the 2010 World Cup. .

Shakira will perform songs from her collection of smash hits and her new album, She Wolf, released in the US on November 23rd, 2009, by Epic Records. The album is the follow-up to 2005's Platinum certified album Oral Fixation Vol. 2, which spawned the hit single "Hips Don't Lie" reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 which was #1 in 55 countries and became the most played song in the history of US pop radio. The critically acclaimed She Wolf continues to grow in popularity with the recent release of the album's third single, "Gypsy,” preceded by hit singles "She Wolf" and "Give It Up To Me", featuring Lil Wayne. Shakira made Billboard chart history again in 2010 with her 17th top five hit on the Latin Pop Airplay chart with “Gitana,” giving her the most top five titles by a female artist in the chart’s 16-year history.

Shakira is a Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter, an entertainer, record producer and advocate for universal education. She is the founder and President of the Barefoot Foundation (Pies Descalzos), a founding member of the ALAS Foundation and an ambassador for 1GOAL and UNICEF.
