Shania Twain is a legend among legends, and her recent concerts proved that her fans are still willing to show up in droves when she performs. According to an article from Rolling Stone, Shania managed to sell out back-to-back Wednesday and Thursday night shows at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Canada. It was part of the annual Calgary Stampede, but the stampede probably came from Shania's fans trying to get to the venues. It was reportedly the first time that back-to-back shows sold out at the venue.
According to witnesses at both concerts, Shania arrived on horseback and performed various hits including 'Man! I Feel Like A Woman' and 'Any Man Of Mine'. She told fans at the venue, "It feels so good to not only be back in Calgary, but to be back on the live concert stage after nearly ten years."
Could this all be preparation for Shania's big comeback? It's been hinted for a few months that Shania was planning a tour, and she recently hinted that she might be preparing to book a tour in the next year. If she does plan a tour, it will be her first in over eleven years.
It could be that executives were actually worried about Shania's drawing power among fans, but if these many fans showed up in Calgary, there's no doubt that her fans are willing to turn up for her concerts. Right now, a live tour is looking very likely, especially with the positive response to her live performances. Of course, Shania first has to finish her Las Vegas residency before going on tour, but there's only a few weeks left of that. Plus, she also has her next album to wrap up, even though she hinted that she was nearing completing for a while.
