The first leg of Shania Twain’s Queen of Me Tour has officially come to a close. 

Taking to social media to commemorate the first half of the trek, the country icon shared her gratitude for her fans who have attended the shows and expressed her excitement for the next stint of dates. 

The post featured a slideshow of photos highlighting various moments from her time on stage alongside a caption that read, “Thank you so so much to every single person who came out to a show this summer. I’ve had the time of my life performing and creating for you 💖” 

Shania Twain made her final stop in New Orleans, LA on July 24, and is now gearing up for shows across Ireland and the UK in September followed by dates in Denver, Toronto, New York, London, Dublin, and more.

“Europe you’re up next and I’ll be back on the road in the US & Canada again later this year,” she wrote in conclusion. 

The Queen of Me Tour, which officially marks Twain’s return to the stage in nearly five years, will come to an end on November 14th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. 

Along with continuing her headlining run, the five-time GRAMMY winner recently announced the unveiling of the Royal Edition Extended Version of her latest album, Queen Of Me.

Out now, the new 19-track project elevates the Queen of Me chapter to new heights with its addition of songs including “Done & Dusted” and On Three,” which features Billy Ray Cyrus counting Twain in ahead of the opening notes. 

“I was in the studio recording “On Three” and I thought: this needs the voice of a sexy man with a southern accent counting the song in, and the first person that came to mind was Billy Ray Cyrus.” Twain states on the Cyrus collaboration. “Since our friendship goes way way back, I just called him up and had him record and count me in from my phone! He was really fun and it worked out exactly how I imagined it.”

The end of the collection also features a revamped version of “Inhale/Exhale AIR” (feat. BRELAND), an acoustic delivery of the title track, and “Giddy Up!” (Malibu Babie Remix).

Throughout the year, the “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” singer has continued to make a statement on the stage not only with her energizing setlist but also with her vibrant style.

Along with the bold looks she’s showcased on red carpets, Twain has also been having a blast experimenting with different hair colors. From platinum blonde to vibrant red and bubblegum pink, she’s trying it all.

While on the red carpet of the 2023 CMT Awards, Twain explained to E! that the inspiration behind her creative new looks is her graying hair. 

“Over the years, I have had many different styles,” she said. “I’m playing more with color right now, and I’m enjoying that because I’m going gray.”

Instead of shielding herself from this next phase of her life, Twain reveals she’s excited to continue trying new ways to switch up her style because as she wrote on Instagram, “Life is too short to wear boring clothes!!”

“As I go gray, I’m like, ‘I might as well toy around with different colors,’ I might change my hair color every week,” Twain added. “Why not? I’ll have an empty palette. I’m experimenting with that.”

Her ever-changing hair colors have now become another accessory to her stunning ensembles. 

“It’s almost an excuse to play with color and embrace it. I just enjoy playing around with it, like fashion,” she said.

Shania Twain is expected to continue bringing her bold looks on the road for the next leg of her Queen of Me Tour which continues September 14 in Glasgow, UK.
