Shakira is planning an "interactive" UK tour this winter.

The 'Hips Don't Lie' hitmaker has been working alongside theatre director Felix Barrett for her upcoming 'Tour Of Earthly Delights', and promises an "energetic" performance, which could see fans allowed to wander around on stage.

She explained: "I'm going to be in the UK this December working with Felix. He's one of those golden minds so I'm designing the show with him. It's going to have themes and there'll be a lot of audience interaction.

"My live show will have a lot of that, a lot of dancing, a joie de vivre. I feel such freedom on stage. It's such a rush to be performing. I like to see everybody's faces on stage, to see the reaction. Normally you can only see the front row because of the lights."

The Columbian singer - who performed at Britain's Glastonbury festival in June - revealed fans can expect to see a similar performance to that which was seen at the iconic music event.

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "You'll see a lot of the energy you saw during my Glastonbury festival appearance, but there are also going to be other moments that I hope are artistically energetic. I want to feel things up close.

"My vibe is to gather different influences from all over and put them together with my own style."

Shakira's world tour comes to the UK on December 14 - kicking off in Manchester - and runs until December 20.
