Shakira cancels European tour after suffering vocal cord haemorrhage

Why did Shakira just cancel a handful of tour dates?

Why did Shakira just cancel a handful of tour dates?

"It pains me not to be able to sing this month, for those have done even the impossible to get tickets and accompany me throughout different countries of Europe", she wrote.

Going on to say that she needs to dedicate time to recover properly, the singer says that the tour will restart in 2018.

The Hips Don't Lie singer thanked her team, family members and fans for their support.

Shakira was to begin her El Dorado tour this month in Cologne, and perform throughout Europe before kicking off the North American leg of the tour in January. Towards the end of October though, in the home stretch of my rehearsals, I felt a odd hoarseness that impeded my singing.

Shakira then told her fans that she had suffered a hemorrhage on her right vocal cord!

At the end of July I went for a routine checkup, before starting to design this tour and my doctor confirmed that my vocal cords were in ideal condition.

"During these last few days of rehearsals I have unfortunately strained my vocal chords and as a result, my doctors have ordered me to go on vocal rest to avoid any greater damage that could keep me from performing".

Shakira's break does make sense, particularly because the main treatment option for a vocal cord hemorrhage is strict vocal rest for at least a week, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) explains.

For my kids who were excited to see their mom in concert as soon as possible.

"In all the years I've been singing, I've never been faced with a situation like this", she confessed. At the moment I find myself in a hard battle as I try to fully recover.
