Shakira Coming to the District
Mega superstar Shakira is touring the United States this summer and will visit the nation's capital during her "Oral Fixation" tour of 23 cities, Hispanic PR Wire reports.
Howling Latina absolutely adores Shakira and her whirligig gyrations; she moves her body as if it were a rubber band; gosh that girl can DANCE!
HL just hopes they still have a couple of tickets for the show at the Verizon Center on Aug. 29.
The Columbian beauty of Lebanese parents starts her tour in El Paso on Aug. 9 and ends in McAllen, Texas on Sept. 25.

Shakira has also been in the news lately with her call "for a ceasefire to end the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon."
Sounds like the sexy lady is not only talented but has a few brain cells as well; and all the more reason to buy a ticket to see her concert, if she's not already sold out.
She said: "War is not the answer. War is not the solution to any conflict - not today, not in this century. I am sad, like the rest of the world is, to know that because of this conflict so many innocent mothers and children are dying.
"We want something better for the kids of the world. We don't need leaders that create more divisions and resentment and more hatred. We need leaders that care about the people."
Update: Tickets are still available through TicketMaster as of this morning.
