Shakira postpones tour, San Jose date, due to medical condition

Under doctor’s advisement, global superstar Shakira has postponed her the U.S. and European legs of her El Dorado World Tour.

That includes the show that was originally scheduled for the SAP Center in San Jose on Feb. 7.

The rescheduled date is Sept. 6.

Tickets issued for the original date will be accepted at the rescheduled show.

The postponement was necessary to allow Shakira time to recover from a vocal cord injury reportedly sustained during tour rehearsals.

“Shakira’s doctors have determined that she needs to spend the next few months working towards recovery in order for her vocal cords to be in optimal condition for touring, and as such we are obliged to postpone the U.S. leg of the El Dorado World Tour,” according to a news release.

It has reportedly been a very trying time for the vocalist.

“Though it has been a difficult time for Shakira, she is on her way towards recovering her voice fully and we are pleased to announce new dates for both the U.S. and European legs, beginning in June 2018. Please note Mexico and Latin America show dates are forthcoming,” the news release says.

Candytopia, because the ice cream museum is so last summer

A Los Angeles-based celebrity candy stylist (apparently there is such a thing) has taken her wildest, wackiest and weirdest candy-filled dreams and is bringing them to life in an interactive exhibition dubbed Candytopia.

The original opening date of Dec. 15 has come and gone, with an announcement blaming unspecified “last-minute obstacles.” Now the date is “early 2018.”

Its impresario Jackie Sorkin is known for her TLC show “Candy Queen” and as the candy stylist to the stars, having worked for the Kardashians and Katy Perry’s candy-themed California Dreams tour. Sorkin developed a variety of candy-inspired environments that are meant to be look at, touched, smelled, tasted and, of course, it all begs to be snapped and uploaded straight to social media.

Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven close out 2017 in San Francisco

We absolutely dig Camper Van Beethoven, the great indie-rock act responsible for such ’80s gems as “Pictures of Matchstick Men,” “The Day That Lassie Went to the Moon” and, of course, “Take the Skinheads Bowling.”

We also adore Cracker, the alt-rock juggernaut behind such 90s classics as “Low,” “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now),” “Get Off This” and “Euro-Trash Girl.”

Thus, not surprisingly, we highly recommend those two acts’ co-headlining tour, which rolls into the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco Dec. 30-31.

The busiest man in the house, of course, will be David Lowery, who is a member of both bands. And that’s cool with us, since we’re always in the mood for a double dose of that terrific singer-songwriter-guitarist.
