People from all over the world travel to Las Vegas and I’m so thrilled to be able to share my music with a truly global audience.”
Fresh on the heels of receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and with her first memoir entitled “From This Moment On” climbing the New York Times Best Sellers list, Shania Twain’s meteoric star continues to shine bright.

“We work hard living up to the mission of making The Colosseum The Home to the Greatest Entertainers in the World, and with the addition of Shania Twain, we have exceeded our goal,” said John Meglen, President and co-CEO of AEG Live/Concerts West. “The Colosseum proudly continues its rich tradition of shining the spotlight on world-class stars.”
With STILL THE ONE kicking off in December 2012, Shania Twain joins fellow Canadian national-treasure Celine Dion, and international superstars Elton John and Rod Stewart as resident headliners at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
“Without question, Shania Twain is an international superstar and one of the most beloved icons in country music,” said Gary Selesner, Caesars Palace president. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome her as The Colosseum’s first-ever country music resident headliner. We are looking forward to Shania’s triumphant return to the stage with many powerful and memorable performances at Caesars Palace.”
An amazing and accomplished singer and songwriter, Shania Twain is a phenomenon. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide, she is the top-selling female country artist of all time; has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries; has the eighth-biggest selling album of all time in the U.S. and 18 top ten songs, eight of which reached #1.
Most amazing of all, Shania has reached beyond all feasible music boundaries with just four studio albums – three of which have received Diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of 10 million copies in the U.S. She is the only female artist to have three consecutive albums sell more than 10 million copies.
