Shakira Signs New Deal
Shes the latest star to join a massive touring promoter
Shakira has signed a megabucks deal with Live Nation- following in the footsteps of the U2, Jay- Z and Madonna. The firm will now look after the pint sized pop stars albums, tours, website and merchandise in a deal worth a reported 50 Million. Live Nation has been signing man all encompassing deals with big artists as record labels struggle to make money. However some industry insiders believe they are paying inflated prices for such deals. Shakira still has three albums left to complete for her current label Sony so is likely to be 35 before she starts her Live Nation deal properly.
