Colombian pop star Shakira on Wednesday cancelled the remainder of her world tour because of a problem with her vocal chords and said she hoped to be back on stage in June of next year.
“Though I very much hoped to be able to recover my vocal chords in time to pick the tour back up in January and after exploring many options to that effect, I have accepted that this is an injury that simply needs more time to heal,” Shakira said in a statement.
The Hips Don’t Lie star cancelled the European leg of her El Dorado World Tour in November. She said she hoped to resume the tour in June 2018 with concerts in Europe, United States and Latin America. It’s currently due to conclude September 6 in San Jose, California.
“I feel for all of you who planned ahead to come to these shows and be so patient as I took some time to figure out the best course of action with my doctors,” Shakira said.
She also stated that she can’t wait for June. “I promise to give you all of me and more from the minute I get on that stage. I am counting days till showtime!” expressed the 40-year-old singer.
