Shakira's vocal chords are on the mend and, while a prolonged recovery has forced her to postpone dates for her "El Dorado" tour, the Colombian superstar will be back on the road by June next year.

In a statement, Shakira wrote, "I wanted to write one more letter to express my gratitude to all of you for the immeasurable love and support that you have sent me these past few weeks," Billboard reported. "Thankfully, I am so relieved and happy to share with you that I will be getting back on the road in June 2018 with my El Dorado World Tour in Europe, and the US, with Latin America dates to be announced soon."

Shakira announced in November that she was postponing her tour, which was scheduled to kick off in Europe, after suffering a vocal cord hemorrhage, The Daily Mail noted.

The 40-year-old singer had to pull out of the opening show in Germany to avoid further damage but was hoping that with rest she could make a full recovery in time for her Paris show on Nov. 10.

When this proved unsuccessful, doctors advised her to extend the period of rest and push back the dates of her tour until next year.

"All the years I've been signing, I've never been faced with a situation like this," she said in a statement, per The Daily Mail.

Shakira added the she felt for all her fans who had planned ahead to attend the shows and who have "been so patient" as she "took the time needed to figure out the best course of action" with her doctors, The Huffington Post reported.
