LAS VEGAS (AP) – Following in the footsteps of the “Dictator”, Shania Twain paraded the Las Vegas Strip on Wednesday making a unique entry to her two-year headline gig at Caesars Palace. A large mass of viewers gathered in front of the famous hotel to watch the country singer cross the Las Vegas Boulevard in company of 40 horses.
Shania Twain’s arrival at Caesars Palace has long been announced by organizers. No wonder then, that so many people gathered on the streets of Las Vegas to watch the singer’s horse parade. Hundreds of people were waiting in front of the luxurious Caesars fountains, whereas dozens of others watched the entire show from the sidewalk.
Among them was also Steve Huffman, a UPS manager from Charleston, W.Va., who was in town with his wife, Debi. He told the press that he preferred to come out of the world-famous hotel and watch Twain instead of gambling his money. They found out that the country singer was going to parade the Las Vegas Strip on a horse through a Twitter message, so they agreed to wait for her near the boulevard.
After Shania finished her stampede, she walked up the temporary outdoor stage that was purposefully installed for her near the fountains. All dressed in black and covered with a long leather mantle, Shania greeted the crowd while the single “Still The One” blasted on the speakers. Her show “Shania: Still the One” will debut on December 1 and it will be hosted inside the 4,300-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Celine Dion, Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld are some of the many artists who performed on the same stage.
The 47-year-old artist is considered to be one of the most famous singer-songwriters of country music at present. She has managed to sell 75 million albums worldwide until now and is expected to make a comeback in the music industry with a new album that will be released around Christmas.
