Shania Twain Closing Curtain On Vegas Tenure After 110 Shows
Country-pop queen Shania Twain has had a great run in Vegas and she's finally ready to close the curtain after more than 110 shows.
According to CMT, Twain will end its two year run on Dec. 13.
"I can't thank Las Vegas enough," Twain said in a statement, calling the city "home" and noting an after-school program she launched in a needy Las Vegas school, reports Fox. "I started the first international Shania Kids Can clubhouse in Las Vegas because I love this city, and my time here has given me more than anyone can ever know."
Twain also announced 16 "Shania: Still the One" shows in October and December, in addition to summer performances running through July 26 at the Colosseum.
Her stage show reportedly features trained horses, a live band and a flying motorcycle. Twain received a Vegas honor for her stage show this month.
Country Weekly reports Twain was named "Best Resident Performer" on Las Vegas Weekly's "Best of Vegas 2014" list.
The magazine's site says Twain's concert production "takes fans through various stages of her life and career as she performs her biggest hits in an intimate setting that gives off a personal feel."
Twain also recently set a record in Calgary, by headlining two back-to-back sold-out performances during the Calgary Stampede earlier this month.
"In our ten years of Saddledome concerts during the Calgary Stampede, Shania is the first artist to sell out two back-to-back shows," Adam Oppenheim, managing director of Stampede Concerts Inc., said.
It had been 10 years since the singer performed live in Canada.
Sounds like her remaining Las Vegas shows are something you don't want to miss.
