•Fresno will be the final show of Shania Twain’s final tour.
Never miss a local story.
•Twain is best known for hits like “Honey I’m Home,” “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “From This Moment On.”
Shania Twain will end her touring career ... in Fresno.
The singer, responsible for the best-selling country album of all time — 1997’s “Come on Over” — announced dates for her “Rock This Country” tour, including a final stop Aug. 23 at the Save Mart Center.
It is her first tour in more than a decade.
It will also be her last, according to Twain, who made the announcement on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday. She turns 50 on Aug. 28, five days after her Fresno concert.
The tour kicks off June 5 and will hit 48 cities, playing major venues such as New York City’s Madison Square Garden, before its final show at the Save Mart Center. Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw will open the Fresno show.
Tickets for the show are $46 to $136 and will be available 10 a.m. Friday, March 13, at the SMC box office, select Save Mart Supermarkets, at ticketmaster.com, or by phone (800) 745-3000. Pre-sale tickets for the show will be available at shaniatwain.com from 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 10, to 10 p.m. Thursday, March 12.
The tour comes after a two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and will be a completely new production that runs through Twain’s catalog of hits that includes 17 top-10 singles.
“This is a celebration tour. It’s party time! The ‘Rock This Country’ tour will have a different spirit than my past tours,” Twain says in a release.
“It’s a Shania they’ve never seen before. A lot of years have gone by and I’ve got a lot more to share.”
