Shakira coming to Amway Arena in Orlando
Shakira's just messing with us at this point, right?
She was scheduled to perform at the Ice Palace (now the St. Pete Times Forum) in Tampa back in 2002, but then canceled the concert, and she hasn't even looked our way since.
We had hoped that her upcoming fall tour might finally bring her back to Tampa Bay for a make-good concert, but no dice. First she scheduled a show in Fort Lauderdale on Sept. 25, then one in Miami on Sept. 27 ... and now, she's announced a show at Orlando's Amway Arena on Sept. 28, all but guaranteeing there's no Tampa show in the works.
We hope we're wrong, and that she decides to add a fourth Florida show between Sept. 28 and Oct. 1 (when she has a show in Dallas), but we're not holding out hope. What gives, She-Wolf? Our hips don't lie, either!
Anyway, if you're interested in driving to Orlando to see Shakira, tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Friday. If you need enticement (beyond, y'know, Shakira herself), tickets start at just $9.50, and go up to $148.50. Click here to purchase.
