Tour Anfibio (Spanish: Amphibious Tour) is a concert tour by Colombian singer Shakira that started on March 21, 2000 in Lima (Peru), and ended on May 12 in Buenos Aires (Argentina). The name "anfibio" was chosen by Shakira for its resemblance with her: earthy, viscerally connected to the water element, capable of adapting and willing to undergo metamorphosis.[according to whom?] The tour was sponsored by Nokia during the South American legs of the tour.

About the tour[edit]

The tour's setlist consisted of songs from her albums Pies Descalzos and Dónde Están los Ladrones? In addition, she included an a capella song, "Alfonsina y el Mar", originally by Argentine folk singer Mercedes Sosa. Criticism of the tour was the overselling of tickets in Guatemala, the long delays at the start of the show, the short duration of the tour, and the accusation of prerecorded music at the concert in Puerto Rico. Despite this criticism, all of the concerts were quickly sold out, and Shakira even added some extra concerts due to popular demand.

Broadcast and Recordings[edit]

The concert of the National Auditorium of Mexico and the concert in Luna Park of Buenos Aires was broadcast by a National Transmission.
