shakira’s mexican record

Posted on May 30, 2007


Move aside Spencer Tunick.

Tunick might have generated lots of publicity with his record-breaking nude photo shoot in Mexico City’s Zocalo earlier this month.

But the white-hot booty-shaking Shakira packed a record-breaking number of Mexicans into the very same location with her free concert over the weekend. Her audience of over 200,000 not only dwarfed the 20,000 that turned up at the nude photo shoot organized by Tunick earlier, it also broke records for the largest public audience in Mexico.

Fans camped overnight at the Zocalo, Mexico City’s enormous main public square the size of five football fields. The capacity of the historic Zocalo is actually around 100,000. So that meant roads surrounding the area were also packed for the Colombian singer’s concert.

Her performance in Mexico City is part of her Oral Fixation Tour, which has drawn over 2 million fans worldwide.
