Shakira’s Oral fixation world tour July 19, 2006

It’s been a long time since Shakira went on a Colombian tour presenting her “Pies Descalzos” album.

shaki.jpgThe day for Shakira’s Toronto concert is quickly approaching and I am already building excitement as I’ve been waiting to see Shakira live for about 10 years now. It was in 1996 when I saw her for the first and only time. Back then she was a sentimental teenager who seemed to be starting her career, but already had like two previous rather unsuccessful albums. Back then I already liked a couple of songs of that singer who stood on the stage of “El Campin” stadium in Bogotá, and cried singing “Antologia”. I was way at the back of the stadium, and I could barely see Shakira’s tiny figure, but I still enjoyed her show, which wasn’t only hers. That day, Shakira shared the stage with Mexican band “Cafe Tacuba” and Argentinean singer “Miguel Mateos”. Seemingly, back then, Shakira was the “smallest” artist in the show, literally and figuratively, as the other two artists had a bigger trajectory in Latin American rock.

Today it is amazing to see Shakira showcasing her music all around the world, setting new records with her songs, and being a world wide figure, one of the most widely recognized artists in the world. I was surprised to hear that her last two concerts in Croatia and Romania were not as crowded as expected. Reportedly, in Croatia only 10000 people showed up at her concert, while in Timisoara, Romania, “only” 17000 people showed up, when they were expecting 40000. I am daring to speculate that this was caused by errors in the organization, where concerts weren’t planned with enough time necessary to put on a show if this magnitude, and perhaps there wasn’t enough publicity for them. Some say the cost of the tickets were a bit high. This is just my speculation, as with the fame and popularity that Shakira has , it is hard to believe that in those countries there aren’t more than 10000-17000 people who want to see her. Hopefully this doesn’t lower the energy, and the enthusiasm that Shakira and her band will have comes the time to tour around North America. I am expecting bigger concerts than there were in the previous “Mongoose” tour as I saw parts of it on her “Live and off the record” DVD, and it looked fantastic. I guess we’ll see, but to me, excitement is only getting bigger and bigger until the day when I see her live in Toronto 7 seat rows away from me.

Well she should come to Serbia!She has much many fans here than is Romania and Croatia together…

I think she made a big mistake that she went to Croatia and Romania, but she didn’t come to Hungary.
She is the biggest female in Hungary. The Fijaión oral vol. 1 and Oral Fixation vol. 2 are in Gold status.
In the radio La tortura was 12 weeks on Nr. 1 and Hips don’t lie is already 6 weeks on Nr. 1
So she has many many fans in Hungary.
I don’t understand why she gave a concert in countries where she not too popular.
She have to come to Hungary to give a huge concert!
