Shania Twain to end Vegas run in December
TORONTO – Come on over, Shania Twain fans: the Canadian country superstar has announced her final run of shows on the Las Vegas Strip.
Twain’s two-year residency at Caesars Palace will conclude with a 16-show run, culminating in a finale on Dec. 13.
In the meantime, Shania: Still the One is also running through July 26.
Another 10 dates are scheduled for October before the six-show final run in December. (She performs Aug. 30 in PEI.)
When she wraps, the Timmins, Ont., native will have performed 110 shows since launching the slick production back on Dec. 1, 2012.
The show features the 48-year-old running through her vast catalogue of hits aided by typical Vegas sparkle and high production values, including a 13-piece band, six male dancers and even a pair of horses.
In a statement, Twain — who had been away from the stage for more than eight years prior to heading to the desert — raved about the city.
“At the beginning of this amazing journey, through the rediscovery for my love of performing, I knew the stage would feel like home, but it turned out that Las Vegas itself became ‘home’,” she said.
“Performing for fans who come from all over the world to see the show night after night warms my heart. 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.
“I can’t thank Las Vegas enough.”
