Shania Twain announces Rock This Country final tour

Shania Twain is returning to the road one final time after more than ten years. Twain announced her Rock This Country Tour as her last on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday (Mar 4th).

“Finally, after 11 years, I am going back on tour,” Twain told GMA host Robin Roberts with cheers from the show’s crew. “It’s been a long time.”

The trek kicks off with a lone U.S. show June 5th in Seattle before before a slew of shows in Twain’s native Canada June 7th through 28th. It then returns to the U.S. June 30th with a stop at New York’s Madison Square Garden before trekking back west through Nashville, St. Louis, San Jose, Los Angeles and Fresno, where it wraps August 23rd, a few years before her 50th birthday.

Twain revealed that she is just ready to end the touring aspect of her career. “I feel like I’m ready to hang my hat up in that regard. I just really want to go out with a bang.”

Tickets to the tour go on sale to the general public on March 13th, but her website is offering fans a pre-sale beginning March 10th. Wes Mack and Gavin DeGraw will each open select dates.

On March 3rd, Twain released the CD/DVD Shania: Still The One Live From Vegas, commemorating her two year Las Vegas residency that wrapped in December. Twain’s last album was released more than 13 years ago.
