Stampede Marks Shania Twain’s Arrival in Las Vegas
Canadian country singer Shania Twain marked her arrival at Ceaser’s Palace, Las Vegas for a two year residency with what was described as a 40 horse stampede through the streets of the world famous gambling and entertainment city.
The stage managed event was held to mark the beginning of Twain’s Still The One concerts that will take place at Ceaser’s Palace for the next two years.
Twain, 47 arrived at the head of the stampede riding a black horse as the 40 other horses were carefully guided along the Las Vegas Strip by a group of cowboys.
The country star claims her new show will tell the story of her life and career using some of her most famous songs to entertain up to 4,300 ticketholders per night at the Ceaser’s Palace Colosseum.
She has described her inspiration for the show as being to show the ‘ journey of my life and career’.
“My first step in creating the show was writing out the song list, building my ideas from there. I wanted to keep the hits at the heart of it all while weaving elements of surprise throughout the experience,” said Shania.
“My vision is to bring the atmosphere of each song alive through multi- dimension sensory and share the journey of my life and career with the audience from a unique perspective.
“The Colosseum theatre is heaven for an artist and the opportunity to collaborate with such a brilliant team is making my dream show a reality.”
The arrival of the star who has sold over 75 million albums worldwide was not completely unique; in 1955 Las Vegas legend Frank Sinatra arrive for a residency at the Old Dunes Casino riding a camel to mark the beginning of his stint in the desert.
What do you think of the Shania Twain Horseback entrance? Too much, or just the right amount of over-the-top Vegas should have?
