Shakira Performs for 150,000 Fans for FREE in Mérida, MX.

The Colombian singer offered a free two-hour concert in southeastern Mexico where she even covered Metallica!

Shakira dazzled her Mexican fans with a two hour long performance of her songs, including “Pies Descalzos,” “Loba,” “La Tortura,” and the 2010 World Cup anthem Waka-Waka, for which she had a dozen audience members come upstage.

Shakira put the icing on the cake when she covered Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.”

Despite the threats of a boycott by some city residents upset by the lack of transparency as to whom was sponsoring and producing the concert, the show went on smoothly to become one of the most attended in years.
