Shakira has announced the first three dates of her North America tour, which will hit New York's Madison Square Garden Sept. 21, Houston's Toyota Center Oct. 8 and L.A.'s Staples Center Oct. 23.

Tickets go on sale to the public May 7, with a fan club presale today (May
3) and a presale for Citi cardholders tomorrow. Ticket prices range from
$9.50 to $149.50. The tour is promoted by Live Nation, with which Shakira has a multi-rights deal.

Shakira's Oral Fixation 2006-07 world tour grossed more than $42 million
across 46 dates in North America and Latin America, as reported to Billboard Boxscore. In total, the tour grossed more than $100 million worldwide, her manager told Billboard last year.

Shakira's latest album on Epic, "She Wolf," has sold 303,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Spanish version of her latest single, "Gypsy," is No. 1 on Billboard's Latin pop airplay charts this week. Her first single, "She Wolf," went to No. 11 on the Hot 100. Second single "Give It Up to Me" with Lil Wayne and Timbaland peaked at No. 29 on that chart.
