Shakira in Cancun on July 15.

Submitted by ss on March 16, 2011 – 10:08 amNo Comment

Her concert will be held at the golf course of the Moon Palace Hotel.

The information published by the Diario on the performance of Shakira in Cancun as part of the visit to the Peninsula in July, that will include a presentation in Merida, was confirmed yesterday to this newspaper by the Palace resorts chain which indicated that the singer will be presented on Friday, July 15 on the golf course of the Moon Palace.
Bernardo Santillana, corporate director of sales in Mexico for the hotel chain, which is owned bu the Yucatecan Jose Chapur Zahoul, told the newspaper, that the time of the presentation is not definite yet, though between 7:00 and 8:00 P.M. is being considered.
Last night Bernardo made the announcement in Mexico City, as part of the launch of a new concept of shows in hotels, Las Vegas style, for the Palace Resorts.
As a result of this promotion, guests of the Moon Palace will have access to the Shakira concert practically included in the price of the hotel, but the box office will also be open to the general public through Ticketmaster. Prices will be announced later, said the official. The maximum capacity of the golf course is 20 thousand people.
As we reported, in Merida members of the business community have indicated the state government as the organizer of the singer’s concert, of which there is yet no official announcement. The first versions indicate that it will take place at the Monumento de la Patria with free access.
According to Bernardo Santillana, in Cancun we are just in time for the promotion, because now starts the decision making process of where to vacation this summer. The work of marketing will begin next week.
The chain plans to hold 2 events of the same size , the other one in December, and though the name of the artist is not yet known, it will be someone comparable with Shakira.
In 2003, the golf course was the scene of a concert by Placido Domingo, who performed with the accompaniment of the then fledgling Orquestra Sinfonica de Yucatan.
Reactions
The information about the concert has generated excitement among the readers of the Journal. The first note we published last Wednesday in respect, ¨Shakira will come to Merida¨, generated 10,169 visits to our electronic edition (www.yucatan.com.mx) and 7,259 vistits were registered that same day by the publication ¨Shakira in Merida¨.
Day before yesterday the news ¨Stir for Shakira¨had 7,489 visits.
