Shania Twain announces dates for her final tour

By Andrew Buncombe

Even the best of things must come to an end. Shania Twain, the woman who recorded the best-selling country album of all time, has announced she is going back on the road one last time.

The Canadian singer songwriter has announced a 48-date tour that takes in the US and Canada which she said will be her last.

“This is my last tour, so I’m going to make the most of it,” Twain told ABC. “I want to go out with a bang.”

The woman behind 1997 bestselling Come on Over, will kick off in Seattle on June 5 and then head north for several dates in Canada, Rolling Stone reported.

She will then return to the US for date at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and then nights at Boston, Miami, Washington and Philadelphia. Her final gig will be in Fresno, California, in August, a few days prior to her 50th birthday.

In December, Twain, known for hits such as Honey I'm Home and Man! I Feel Like a Woman! concluded a successful residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Entitled Shania: Still the One, the elaborate showroom production, which included multiple costume changes and the singer flying onto the stage atop a motorcycle, ran for two years.

A TV special, Shania: Still the One Live From Vegas, aired last week on ABC.

“I feel that Las Vegas, the show, was a huge mountain to climb for me. I not only got through it, but I enjoyed it,“ said Twain, promising an entirely new production. ”I didn't want to take part of the show on the road, I wanted to take an entirely new show that was custom-made for touring.”
