It’s been a great two years for country-pop queen Shania Twain at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, but I guess all good things must come to an end, right?
On Dec. 13, after more than 110 shows on the Vegas Strip, she’ll close the door on her wildly popular Shania: Still the One show.
Did you get a chance to travel to Sin City to see it? I didn’t, and now I’m completely distraught. This wasn’t just any Shania Twain show. It was a spectacle, boasting a massive band, dancers, a flying motorcycle, multi-scent (yes, scent) show projectors and, yes, trained horses. All onstage.
And the residency at the Colosseum was more than just a chance for Twain to entertain her fans on a massive scale. Her tenure in Vegas was a chance for her to give back in a massive way, too, with her Shania Kids Can venture, an after-school program she began in the city at a public school in need. The program helped launch a clubhouse where kids can enjoy a host of activities geared toward their betterment and well-being.
So it’s safe to say, Shania will be equally as sad to leave her Vegas home when the curtain closes in December. In a statement said, “I can’t thank Las Vegas enough. … My time here has given me more than anyone can ever know.”
Well, you could always stay or maybe take the show — parts of it, anyway — on the road.
I mean, isn’t Garth Brooks doing a world tour with his full band after wrapping up his one-man show at the Wynn in Vegas?
