So, you’re a rocket scientist? Brad Pitt? You think you’re Elvis or something?
That don’t impress Shania Twain much.
What did impress on Wednesday night was the frenzied reception from a Rogers Place crowd for a Canadian country music star back on tour for the first time since 2015, celebrating her first full-length album in almost 16 years since Up! made its debut in November of 2002.
Shania NOW? Shania forever.
The five-time Grammy Award-Winner’s spirited 21-song set full of laughter, fun, love and heartbreak shattered expectations in the first of two back-to-back shows for the Canadian icon at Rogers Place as an early stop on her Shania NOW tour this summer.
Hit songs across four albums that have rocked the airwaves for more than 22 years charmed Shania’s faithful fans for nearly two-and-a-half hours, with Twain paying off their fandom with plenty of opportunity to revel in her spotlight throughout the evening.
