Shania Twain is getting set to launch her Las Vegas, Nevada, show. Twain recently held production meetings in the city and toured the theatre where she’ll be performing. She also took time out with husband Frédéric Thiébaud to look for a place to live.
Twain joins the likes of Elton John and Celine Dion as a performer in residence at the Caesars Palace Colosseum. The show kicks off December 1, 2012, and will feature 60 performances a year. Twain hasn’t toured since 2004, and her long-awaited return to the stage should prove to be a hot commodity. With an average ticket price of $150 USD and a seating capacity of 4,300 seats, the two-year booking should gross in the area of $78 million. Tickets for the Las Vegas shows are already on sale.
The audience will be treated to some new songs, but the show will be primarily based on Twain’s hits. From 1995 to 2004, Twain had 16 top 10 country hits, including “You’re Still the One,” “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” and “Forever and for Always.” Twain’s Come On Over disc is the highest selling country album by a female artist, with over 20 million copies sold. As well, Twain has earned five Grammy awards.
Fans of Twain can also hear her on Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee album, which will be released on March 27. Twain performs a duet with Richie on “Endless Love.”
