For Shania Twain, the road back to musical relevance has been long and arduous one, as we’ve recently seen in the country superstar’s painful story of betrayal — and its aftermath — told in detail on Oprah; in a shocking tell-all book, From This Moment On; and on her OWN reality show Why Not? But now, it seems, Shania is ready for a full-on musical comeback: She announced today in a press conference that she’ll headline her own Celine Dion-style show, Shania: Still the One, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, opening Dec. 1, 2012. Expect “all of her biggest hits,” according to the just-launched website for the show, where you can buy tickets for the two-year residency beginning June 19.
“I will let my imagination run wild,” she said at the press conference announcing the show. “I’m going to go nuts creatively.” And she shed light on how her journey since her divorce and remarriage has helped her get to this point where she can perform again. “It’s been a healing year,” Twain said. “I’ve learned how to commit myself and put that into healing, instead of fear and anxiety, which is a big turnaround.”
Twain also recently announced that she’ll premiere her first new single in six years, “Today Is Your Day,” on the season finale of her OWN show, Why Not?, this Sunday, June 12.
Do you think a residency in Veags is a good move for Shania? Are you willing to shell out the sure-to-be-sky-high price to see her perform? Sound off below.
