For the last few days I've been very focused on recovery 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 my vocal rest for the time being.

I'm very sorry to inform you all that I won't be able to sing on the 10th and 11th in Paris, the 12th in Antwerp, or the 14th in Amsterdam, but we are working to confirm new dates.

At the moment I am focusing on full recovery to share with you all this show that I've so enjoyed preparing and of which I am very proud.

I'm anxious to get back on stage and be at 100 per cent for you all.

Again I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the support you've shown me these days and which has helped keep me afloat in what has been a difficult time.

God willing we will see each other soon for the kickoff of my tour.

Sending all my love and gratitude,

Shakira (sic)"
