The opening of El Dorado World Tour has been postponed, again.

Shakira broke the news to fans via social media saying, "For the last few days I've been very focused on recovery for my strained vocal cords. I really hoped to achieve this in time to be able to sing in Paris; however, and much to my chagrin, this hasn't been possible, and my doctors have advised me to continue on vocal rest for the time being."

Last week, the singer made the first announcement about postponing the tour's opening by saying, "During these last few days of rehearsals, I have unfortunately strained my vocal cords, 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. I'm devastated to have to miss our first show on November 8th in Koln."
