Shakira, SECC, Glasgow

"Thank you for making it happen," cooed the Colombian pop siren Shakira to her fans; "it" being her first tour date in Scotland. Presumably they didn't have as much to do with it as the event staff, her road crew and the car company whose sponsored branding adorned the articulated lorry-come-billboard parked out front, but the few thousand who had turned up deserved credit on such an awful night. Deepening snow outside and the theme of this T he Sun Comes Out tour sat uneasily alongside one another.
