We might have took the long way, but we finally got to see Shania Twain in concert for the first time last night! There may or not have been some fangirl tears shed at the show. Shania’s “Rock This Country” Tour hit Madison Square Garden, for what is likely her last NYC show … ever. (Shania announced in advance that this would be her final tour.) She proved time and again that after all this time, she’s still the one.
If you’ve seen videos from Shania’s “Still The One: Live From Vegas” show, you might be expecting her to pull out all the stops for her final tour. After all, that show had everything: elaborate sets, horses, backup dancers, many costume changes, etc. But the “Rock This Country” Tour set is surprisingly simple. The stage had the large video screens, pyro and moving parts we’ve come to expect from arena tours, but the real focus was on the music. Shania’s voice and stage presence alone are enough to get the whole crowd rocking. Her voice is as strong as ever, and yes, she can still hit that note in “From This Moment On.” Her large band also helped put the “rock” in the “Rock This Country” Tour! The show was a full blown rock show, and Shania’s band proved that you can rock out on a fiddle! During Shania’s costume changes, her band played impressive arrangements of her biggest hits, keeping the energy high.
This was a Shania Twain show after all, so of course she had some surprises in store! During “Any Man Of Mine,” she took a tour of the arena on a moving mini-stage, getting closer to the fans in the back. She later went “up up up” on a fringed saddle, riding around the runway. Shania also took some time to interact with the lucky fans in the front row! She was hi-fiving and signing things without missing a single note. Shania even handed off the mike during “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)”
Shania has so many hits that her nearly 2-hour set went by in a flash. We could have stayed for another 2 hours, and she certainly would have had enough music to fill it! The arena-wide singalong that happened during “You’re Still The One” was one of the loudest and most emphatic we’ve ever heard. Everyone in the Garden was screaming every word. Chills.
The “Rock This Country” Tour runs through the end of October, and like we said, it’s Shania’s final tour, ever. So don’t be stupid and get your tickets now!
