Shania Twain announces Las Vegas residency, marking music comeback
Shania Twain has landed a two-year residency show, "Shania: Still the One," at Caesars Palace's Colosseum showroom in Las Vegas, beginning on December 1, 2012.
The 45-year-old Grammy winning country singer, who is known for songs like "You're Still the One," "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and "That Don't Impress Me Much," makes her musical comeback after dealing with a messy divorce and losing her voice.
"This past year has been such an amazing journey and to find myself poised to play at The Colosseum is truly magical," Twain said in a press release obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. "The Colosseum is an iconic location with unmatched energy, and I'm excited to bring a pop/country spin to the city. People from all over the world travel to Las Vegas and I'm so thrilled to be able to share my music with a truly global audience."
Tickets for the concert will range in price from $55 to $250 and will be available online at ShaniaInVegas.com.
"Without question, Shania Twain is an international superstar and one of the most beloved icons in country music," Gary Selesner, Caesars Palace president, said in the press release. "We couldn't be more thrilled to welcome her as The Colosseum's first-ever country music resident headliner. We are looking forward to Shania's triumphant return to the stage with many powerful and memorable performances at Caesars Palace."
Last week, Twain received the 2,442nd star on the Walk of Fame. It is located at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. The singer accepted the honor at a ceremony hosted by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
Twain achieved global success with her third album, "Come On Over," which was released in 1997 and sold over 40 million copies worldwide. The album earned Twain four Grammy Awards and became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time.
She last released a studio album in 2002. The record, "Up!," has sold more than 11 million copies in the United States.
In 2008, Twain and her first husband Robert "Mutt" Lange, a record producer and the father of her son Eja, 9, separated after 14 years of marriage.
The country and pop star has been speaking to the press recently to promote her new memoir, "From This Moment On," which is currently climbing the New York Times bestseller list.
At her recent Walk of Fame ceremony, she read from the book, which details her struggle with her separation from her ex-husband, who allegedly cheated on her.
The singer says she learned that he was involved with her assistant and close friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. She and Lange have not confirmed they were involved at the time. After Twain and Lange divorced, the singer married the bearer of the bad news - Thiebaud's husband, Frederic.
Twain's new OWN reality series, "Why Not?," which also showcases her struggle and her journey to regain her voice after the scandal, debuted on May 8. The show gave Oprah Winfrey's new cable network its highest premiere ratings.
