Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira announced the postponement of her U.S. tour Wednesday, which included February dates in Inglewood and Anaheim, because she needs to continue resting her vocal cords.
The Feb. 1 concert at the Forum was rescheduled for Aug. 28 at the same venue, while the Feb. 6 show at the Honda Center was reset for Aug. 31. Tour promoter Live Nation said tickets are good for the new dates, or can be refunded at the point of purchase.
She previously postponed a fall tour in Europe after doctors prescribed rest for her vocal cords. The tour, which supports her 2016 “El Dorado” album, is now scheduled to begin June 5 in Germany, and the first U.S. date will be Aug. 3 in Chicago.
According to Live Nation, her voice is recovering.
“While disappointed to not be able to perform in January as scheduled, Shakira is happy to be able to get back on the road by summer with her best show yet, and remains incredibly grateful for all the loyalty, patience and support her fans have shown her,” the statement said.
Shakira is a two-time Grammy Award winner.
