Twain announces first tour in 10 years

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 – Shania Twain is launching her first North American tour in more than 10 years in June, the singer announce today.

The "Rock This Country" tour will total 48 dates and comes following her two-year residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The tour starts on June 5 in Seattle and concludes Aug. 23 in Fresno, Cal.

Twain has toured the U.S. 3 times, most recently on the Up! Tour in 2003-04.

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets through Front Of The Line for the Canadian shows only before the general public beginning Tuesday, March 10 at 10a a.m. through Thursday, March 12 at 10 p.m. local time, with the public on-sale for most North American shows beginning Friday, March 13 at 10 a.m. local on axs.com

Opening acts include Canadian musician and actor Wes Mack from June 5-28 and Gavin DeGraw from June 30-Aug. 23.

"This is a celebration tour. It's party time. The Rock This Country tour will have a different spirit than my past tours," said Twain. "It's a Shania they've never seen before. A lot of years have gone by, and I've got a lot more to share."

CD reviews for Shania Twain

UP!
When listening to Shania Twain's first album in five years, the listener is faced with making the big decision - blue or green disc. Green supposedly contains 19 country songs. With red, you get the pop version of those same exact songs recorded (international fans get a blue album with Asian sounds). Twain may be generous with the amount of material here, but the overall effect is one of too much music and not enough quality. Yes, there are some country touches and instrumentation, but if you »»»
Come On Over
Like a good many country artists in the HNC phase of country, success seems to breed a situation where artists turn their backs on the very genre which spawned them. After the massive success of "The Woman In Me," Shania Twain has strayed very far from country in what is essentially a pop album. Few of the 16 songs are country: the first single, the catchy, uptempo "Love Gets Me Every Time" with its killer three fiddle attack, "You're Still The One," "Honey, I'm Home," (a lousy job blues song, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well – The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017. Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
