Trafalgar Releasing today announced that they will bring Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour to cinemas worldwide for a one-night event on November 13 with encore screenings to follow in select locations. The film is due to be shown in more than 2000 theatres in over 60 countries, underlining Shakira’s status as a truly global icon.
Following the hugely successful release of international superstar Shakira’s album El Dorado – which earned her a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Vocal Album and a Latin Grammy for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album – she returned to the world stage with her most celebrated show yet, 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 across the planet.
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-highlight show 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 stunning concert footage was predominantly filmed at Shakira’s triumphant Los Angeles show in August 2018, which had Los Angeles Times raving, “Shakira’s show at the Forum had the feel of a hero’s return” with further scenes shot throughout the US, Europe and Latin America.
The event will be screened in cinemas around the world on November 13 with encore screenings in select locations. Tickets are on-sale now at Shakira.film, where fans can find the most up-to-date information regarding participating theaters and sign up for event alerts.
