Shakira in Barcelona this 2010
Those lucky enough to be passing by the Barceloneta in Barcelona could have boasted to have seen Shakira from a few metres away. The Colombian singer paid this exciting city a surprise visit in preparation for her video presenting her forthcoming album “Sale el Sol” (The Sun Comes Out), which is expected to be launched on the 2nd of November.
Much to the astonishment of onlookers and passers-by who couldn’t believe what they were seeing, Shakira passed by the Paseo de la Barceloneta making her way from Hotel W to the Paseo Maritim, sporting roller skates and knee pads with the photographer Jaume de Laiguanan in tow, as well as her entourage of bodyguards and photographers, that didn’t miss a second of the sequence. She mingled with people all throughout her journey and never once stopped smiling.
Once the sequence in the paseo maritime was finished, she approached a tattooed motorcyclist in a leather jacket and started a sequence through the streets of Barcelona, once again to the astonishment of on-lookers and tourists who couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Shakira greeted all her fans and danced with them, as demonstrated in this video on youtube.
Shakira will be showing her love for this Catalan city by returning in November to promote her forthcoming album. Her concert will be taking place on the 24th of November in the Palau de San Jordi, for a long awaited performance by her Spanish fans. Ticket prices range from 45 to 119 euros, and are already running out, so be quick and make sure you get your ticket if you want to dance to the rhythm of this fastest-rising South American star.
