Pretty much anyone who calls themself a Shakira fan went to her ‘El Dorado’ tour in 2017-2018. I mean more than a million people attended her tour which travelled across 22 countries.
And now word is out that we get to relive all those beautiful moments and memories as Shakira is bringing the entire tour to the big screen. With her huge announcement, fans who are excited to relive the memories and fans who weren’t able to attend the original tour, fans have been freaking out.
Yup, it’s true. Shakira is bringing her ‘El Dorado’ tour to the big screen and we couldn’t be more excited.
In a first for the pop superstar, global music icon Shakira comes to cinema screens around the world this November with Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour. The event will be shown on November 13, 2019 in more than 2,000 theaters in over 60 countries around the world with encore screenings to follow in select locations.
Following the hugely successful release of her 2017 album, El Dorado, which earned the singer a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Vocal Album and a Latin Grammy for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album, the 42-year-old singer returned to the world stage, performing recent smashes such as Chantaje and La Bicicleta as well as hits from her 20+ year repertoire including Hips Don’t Lie, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) and Estoy Aqui, to sold out stadiums and arenas around the world. The film will bring fans backstage and behind the scenes on the celebrated tour.
Directed by Shakira and James Merryman, the film relives the thrilling show on the big screen and, through documentary footage and Shakira’s own words, highlights what it took to bring the career-apex concert tour to 22 countries and nearly a million fans, after having to postpone the entire tour due to a vocal cord injury in November 2017.
The ‘She Wolf’ singer promised that it would be “something to remember.”
“This was one of the most memorable tours of my career,” Shak said in a press statement. “After I recovered my voice, my fans inspired me to get back on stage as they always do, and it’s pretty surreal to be reliving it with them now in over 60 countries in theaters throughout the world. I know they’ve been asking on my socials for this concert film and now it’s finally ready, so I hope it will be something to remember both for me and all those who have supported me throughout the years.”
The dazzling concert footage was predominantly filmed at Shakira’s Los Angeles show in August 2018 at The Forum in Inglewood, which the Los Angeles Times said at the time, “had the feel of a hero’s return.” Further scenes were shot throughout the U.S., Europe and Latin America. The tour spanned 22 countries worldwide where it was seen by approximately 1 million Shakira fans.
Fans took to Twitter to share in the excitement and proudly share they already had their tickets.
Seriously, Twitter is full of people proudly sharing screenshots of their tickets to one of the screenings. If there’s one thing we can be sure of in this wild, wacky world, it’s that Shakira has some serious die hard, loyal fans. So we can be sure that this global screening will be a major success for Shakira.
One Twitter user was shocked to find out that he’d be able to see it in his town…
“Oh my god it’s actually playing in my poverty stricken town.”
I’m not one to laugh at poverty but that comment is too funny. We’re just glad to see that people from all walks of life and various backgrounds will have the chance to see one of their favorite singers on the big screen.
But the screening event will happen at over 2,000 theatres in more than 60 countries around the world.
So chances are that no matter where you are in the world you’re nearby a theatre that will be playing Shakira’s big screen debut.
Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing has said: “Trafalgar Releasing are really excited to be bringing to cinemas this incredible story, which illustrates Shakira’s determination and drive from her vocal cord injury through to bringing her amazing El Dorado shows to almost a million fans around the world. Through a mixture of behind the scenes, Shakira’s own words and the hit fuelled shows, this film will bring together Shakira fans everywhere to celebrate her 20 year+ career.”
