Shania Twain will be saying goodbye to her fans in Las Vegas as she officially ends her residency in Sin City this year. As it appears, Twain’s stay in the city won’t be “Forever and For Always,” much to the dismay of her longtime fans. The Queen of Country Pop is set to leave L.V. this December, after two years and 110 performances for her critically acclaimed Caesars Palace show, Shania: Still The One.
According to CMT, Shania’s Nevada gig was quite the show, featuring a huge band, hundreds of professional dancers, scented show projectors, trained horses, and a flying motorcycle. Country fans traveled from other states (and even other countries) to watch the widely popular show and see the singer perform her greatest country hits. Shania Twain announced that there will still be 16 Still The One performances for October and November, giving Twain fans a chance to catch up.
Not only did Shania Twain entertain her admirers, she was also able to support her charitable efforts through her show. The singer started the “Shania Kids Can,” an after-school program she funded for a local public school. The program is designed to encourage and motivate students by funding a clubhouse where kids can engage in a variety of activities that improve self-confidence.
Twain has expressed her gratitude to her host city, according to Fox News. In a statement, she said:
“I can’t thank Las Vegas enough. I started the first international Shania Kids Can clubhouse in Las Vegas because I love this city, and my time here has given me more than anyone can ever know.”
Shania Twain has really enjoyed her country career since she started professionally in 1993. Twain has won dozens of awards, including 5 Grammy Awards, 27 BMI Songwriter Awards, a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. Shania is one of the handful singers to be inducted in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Additionally, Twain has had the honor to become the first non-U.S. resident to win the Country Music Association award.
The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has hosted a couple of other A-list performers before Shania. Before Twain began her two-year show in Vegas, Caesars Palace had Rod Stewart, Cher, Bette Midler, Elton John, and Celine Dion singing their greatest hits on stage. Although the next star to take the mic hasn’t been confirmed yet, all eyes are focused on Shania Twain and her final moments in the city.
