Hot on the heels of her starring role at the World Cup kick-off concert and recent Glastonbury Festival appearance global pop sensation Shakira has announced details of the European leg of her 2010 world tour, sponsored by SEAT.

A dizzying schedule of European dates throughout November and December this year will see the Colombian singer perform all over the Continent, with dates confirmed in - among many other cities - Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Lisbon and Barcelona.

She'll be visiting the MEN Arena Manchester on 14 December; the Odyssey Arena, Belfast on 17 December and the SECC, Glasgow on 19 December. The finale of the European tour is set to be London's O2 Arena on 20 December.

Shakira will perform songs from her collection of smash hits including Waka Waka, She Wolf, La Tortura and the hit single Hips Don't Lie which was No 1 in 55 countries and reached No 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 to become the most-played song in the history of US pop radio.

There will also be a sneak preview of songs from her new album Sale El Sol, which is due for release this autumn.
