shakiraShakira has postponed the first night of her tour on “doctor’s orders” after “straining her vocal cords” in rehearsals.

She was due start her ‘El Dorado World Tour’ in Koln, Germany on Wednesday night, but has been forced to pull out of the opening night to avoid further damaging her voice.

In a statement to her fans posted on Instagram, Shakria wrote: “To my German fans, during these last few days of rehearsals I have unfortunately strained my vocal cords and 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. I love my German fans so much and was looking forward to sharing my first show with you. Thanks as always from the bottom of my heart for all the support and love you’ve shown me heading into this tour.”

She’s been promoting this tour nonstop, but doctor’s orders are doctor’s orders.
