The Colombian superstar announced a world tour in support of her latest album, Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran, on Tuesday and unveiled dates for the North American leg, which kicks off later this year.

"I’m so thrilled to announce the first dates for my LAS MUJERES YA NO LLORAN WORLD TOUR, a celebration for my wolfpack!" wrote Shakira, 47, on social media.

The Grammy winner explained that the tour's North American leg is "the only chance to experience the show in a more intimate way," seemingly teasing larger venues for her international dates, which will be announced at a later date. "I can’t wait to see you all and party together!"

Kicking off Nov. 2 at Acrisure Arena in Palm Desert, California, the U.S. leg of the world tour — Shakira's first since 2018's El Dorado World Tour — will make stops in cities including Phoenix, Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Toronto, New York City, Boston and more before wrapping Dec. 15 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

Tickets first become available through a Citi presale starting April 17 at 10 a.m. local time, followed by an artist presale opening April 19 at 10 a.m. local time and additional presales before the general onsale begins April 22 at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages are also available.

Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran, Shakira's 12th studio album, was released on March 22 and includes the hits "Te Felicito," "Monotonía," "Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53," "TQG," "Acróstico" and more.

In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon around the album's release, the "Hips Don't Lie" musician opened up about feeling "free" to make the new album — which marks her first in 7 years, following her 2022 breakup from ex-partner Gerard Piqué. (They share sons Milan, 11, and Sasha, 9.)

"I've been putting out music here and there, but it was really hard for me to put together a body of work," she said.

"I didn't have time. It was the husband-factor. Now I'm husband-less. Yeah, the husband was dragging me down. Now I'm free. Now I can actually work," continued Shakira, who was never legally married to Piqué during their time together.

She explained that her new album's title translates to "Women no longer cry" in English, adding on Fallon, "It's men's turn now. For too long we have been sent to cry with a script in our hands and without an end just because we are women. We have to conceal our pain in front of our kids, in front of society."
