Country music singer, Shania Twain recently secured a two-year headline gig at Caesars Palace. And man does she know how to make an entrance! The former American Idol guest judge paraded up the Las Vegas Strip on Wednesday in a 41-horse procession.
According to the Associated Press, “Promoters called the event a stampede, but hooves were kept to a steady, slow gait by nine wranglers who escorted Twain to a reception crowd of several hundred people in front of the famous Caesars fountains. Dozens more people watched from the sidewalk of the Flamingo resort across Las Vegas Boulevard.” The Las Vegas Police Department, many of which were also on horseback, diverted casino corridor traffic for Twain’s 30-minute entrance ride.
Twain’s new show at Caesars Palace is called “Shania: Still the One” and is set to open on December 1. The show will be held in the Colosseum, which seats up to 4,300 guests. Twain will join the likes of other Caesars Palace greats like Celine Dion, Jerry Seinfeld, Elton John, and countless others.
“Still the One” blasted across speakers as Twain took her place on an outdoor stage. She said, “The show is a very personalized show.” She explains, “It’s from me to you, the fans personally. We’re there to join together and after many years of not seeing each other on the live stage – so I look forward to that reunion, to seeing all of you there, and enjoying all of the excitement together,” Twain said to fans lining the streets.
As one of the bestselling female country music singers of all time, Twain, 47, has sold a staggering 75 million plus albums worldwide and still counting. Her two-year residency at Caesars Palace will highlight various stages of Twain’s life and singing career.
