Seven years after launching her first Las Vegas Residency, country superstar Shania Twain is returning to Sin City for another run.
Announced today, Twain’s “Let’s Go!” residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino will include 23 performances starting December 6.
Performing in Vegas is something the superstar enjoys for many reasons.
“You can really take advantage of the highest standard technology that is usually too sensitive to take on the road and travel. You can’t pack it up and take it down every day. So it’s a production dream, Las Vegas,” Twain shared.
“And also, it’s just great for my voice to be able to be stabilized in an environment that I can control. And I really appreciate that these days with all my Lyme disease voice issues.”
The platinum-selling star has been open about her struggles with her voice after contracting Lyme disease. She worked with doctors and voice coaches for many years to regain her voice and confidence after coming down with the chronic illness. 15 years later, she released her long-awaited new album, Now. She took her show on the road throughout 2018, but now, she’s ready to settle back down on The Strip.
To prepare for the dry Las Vegas air, Twain plans to “take a steam shower every night as I start my warmups before the show.”
Fans attending Twain’s new Vegas show should expect a big party.
“It (will be) like a giant nightclub,” she revealed. “I’m actually going to put a dance floor on the stage so there’ll be some fun audience participation.”
“I’ve got so many fans that in the ’90s were 3, 4 or 5 years old and now they’re graduating from college — they’ve got that to celebrate,” she added. “Or they’re maybe getting married now, and they’re bringing their parents to my shows these days, so it’s just a great party vibe.”
Tickets for Twain’s “Let’s Go!” residency go on sale Friday.
