Shania Twain is taking a break from the stage in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The superstar just announced that her Shania Twain “Let’s Go!” The Las Vegas Residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has been postponed throughout the month of March.
“The safety and well-being of my fans, touring staff, family and anyone else who could possibly be affected it my top priority,” Twain shared in a statement.
She went on to promise fans that the shows would be rescheduled soon.
Praised for its party vibe, Twain’s new Sin City-based show covers her decades-long career, with hits ranging from “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” to “You’re Still The One,” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much.” The energetic show also features eight costumes changes, a seven-piece band and eight male dancers.
Twain recently added a slew of new dates to the residency, including shows in August, Septemeber and December.
$1 from each ticket sold is being donated to Shania Kids Can. Established by Twain in 2010, the charitable organization “provides services that promote positive change in children’s lives in times of crises and economic hardship.”
