Shania Twain launched her first live show in more than eight years as she began a two-year residency at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace. The 47 year old is, of course, performing in the space all but owned by fellow Canadian Celine Dion during her breaks from her latest five-year sold-out run at Casears.
Twain’s set list includes all of her ’90s hits, including: “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under,” “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “If You’re Not In It For Love (I’m Outta Here),” “You’re Still the One,” “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” and my fave “From This Moment On.”
According to press reports, “Saturday’s show was extra meaningful in part because Twain has been in vocal rehabilitation for years, since reporting the sudden loss of her voice following her painful split from studio wizard and key creative collaborator Robert (Mutt) Lange.”
Her initial run will include 10 shows through Dec. 15, with the next 14-show engagement beginning March 19. Added press report: “It’s still unclear whether Twain has the globe-spanning appeal of Céline Dion, whose own residency at the Colosseum has become one of Las Vegas’s premiere attractions.” *
