New World-Wide Tour Announced After Sizzling Performance
For Shakira, it was something she had been dreaming about for quite some time. The Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-GRAMMY® award winner had a dream and vision, and it all came together during that dynamic performance.
“I want to thank Colombia for giving me the mapalé, the champeta, the salsa and the Afro-Caribbean rhythms that allowed me to create the Super Bowl Halftime Show that I dreamed of more than a decade ago,” she said.
She is being quick to use the momentum from that show to satisfy fans thirsty for more, for on the day after the Super Bowl, she announced a 2021 tour. Details were not included but fans can register for pre-sale information at: verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/shakira2021
Shakira recently released a new single titled “Me Gusta” Shakira & Anuel AA.
Performing on her birthday, SHAKIRA played a new Gibson Firebird guitar which was encrusted with 70,000 Swarovski jet hematite crystals.
She performaed a medley of her music hits celebrating Latin music with a few surprises including “She Wolf,” “Empire,” “Ojos Asi” and Led Zeppelin, “Kashmir” Remix, “Whenever, Wherever,” “I Like It” (Shakira and Bad Bunny), “Chantaje” and “Callaíta” Remix (Shakira and Bad Bunny), “Hips Don’t Lie” and a finale of “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” alongside co-headliner Jennifer Lopez.
In part because of the halftime show, Super Bowl LIV was watched by more than 99.9 million people on FOX, rising from last year’s broadcast numbers. Per Fox Sports, a Spanish-language simulcast on Fox Deportes and streams on Fox, NFL and Verizon platforms boosted the average viewership to 102 million, also an increase from last year’s multi-platform audience.
