Shania Twain is extending her current Rock This Country tour, reports the Las Vegas Sun. Twain recently sat down with legendary media personality Robin Leach to toast her 50th birthday and talk about adding more tour dates, her upcoming album, and another Las Vegas residency.
The extended tour, with 75 shows on the itinerary, will end in October in her home country of Canada. She told Leach she will also head overseas: “Then Europe and maybe add on Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I have to take it phase by phase. But the ideal scenario is to come back to Las Vegas. I’d like to return to Las Vegas and do another couple of years in a residency.”
Her two-year run at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas ended in December. She said, “We could return to Las Vegas next fall, 2016 or early 2017. I would be very happy to be back in Las Vegas.”
The Rock This Country tour, which visited Nashville this summer, has 15 trucks, 100 traveling crew members, plus another 200 crew members at each stop, according to the newspaper.
She said she also plans to finish a new album this fall.
Currently, Twain is taking a break at home in the Bahamas, where her son has started a new school year, before the tour resumes in mid-September.
