Shania Twain Announces Farewell Tour

Shania Twain’s upcoming Rock This Country Tour will be her first in more than a decade.

Twain made the announcement on her website and Good Morning America on Wednesday morning.

“This is my last tour, so I’m going to make the most of it. I want to go out with a bang,” Twain said. “It’s the after-party tour. That’s how I see it. It’s the after-party to all of these years.”

The Rock This Country Tour kicks off June 5 in Seattle, Wash. and then heads north to Canada for a run across the singer’s home country. The tour picks up in the US at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and will conclude in Fresno, Calif. in August.

Twain just wrapped up Shania: Still The One, a two-year residency at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The live cd for that event was released on Tuesday, so it’s more than likely Twain’s camp has had this plan lined up for quite a while.
