Shania Twain: Making Up For Lost Time

It’s been 16 years since Shania Twain last released a studio album “Up”. In that time, she ended a 14-year relationship with collaborator Mutt Lange and suffered the debilitating effects of a Lyme Disease affliction. Yet on a positive note, executed a residency in Las Vegas and supposedly, two years ago, launched a final farewell tour.

Well, the pride of Timmins Ontario is back! New management, a new album, “Now” ( out Sept 29th on Mercury Nashville) and a 42-date North American tour which includes 15 Canadian dates sees Twain firmly back in the spotlight. A recent appearance on the Jimmy Fallon late night show allowed to plug her latest single “Swingin With My Eyes Closed” and Twain will be omnipresent in the next few months, popping up to perform at the opening ceremonies of the U.S Open Tennis Championships in Flushing Meadow NY later this month as well as being scheduled to star as the half time entertainment at the 2017 Grey Cup Final at Ottawa’s TD Place November 26th.

For this one, this needed to be an independent experience,” Twain told the Los Angeles Times. “I hadn’t written by myself for a long time. I was married for 14 years to my collaborator and I really just needed to go back and do this myself and have an uninterrupted flow of creativity that was insular to see what I was made of and see what we have there.”

Of the 42 dates announced so far, Canadian cities benefit from 15 of those shows including multiple dates in Vancouver, Edmonton, London On and Toronto as well as single dates in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Calgary, Ottawa, Hamilton, Montreal and Quebec City.
