All good things must come to an end, including Shania Twain’s Las Vegas residency.

The country hitmaker will be wrapping up her iconic residency in Sin City in 2022. The good news is that Twain announced a new string of shows this summer before the show concludes. Sixteen new shows were announced between June and September of 2022.

Shania Twain returned to her residency this past week after postponing over thirty dates due to the pandemic. She is set to return to the stage after the holidays for eight shows in February at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

See a list of the newly announced Shania Twain “Let’s Go!” The Las Vegas Residency dates, below.

June 2022: 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, 18
August 2022: 26, 27, 31
September 2022: 2, 3, 7, 9, 10

How can a country fan score tickets to one of the newly announced shows? Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday (December 17) at 10 AM PT through her website and venue. Shania Twain fan club members and Citi cardmembers will have priority access on Tuesday (December 14) at 10 AM PT. Additionally, Live Nation, Ticketmaster, and Caesars Entertainment members will have a presale beginning on Wednesday (December 15) at 10 AM PT.

The Let’s Go! Residency initially kicked off in 2019. Twain performs all of her hits with larger-than-life productions. She has truly paved the way for other country icons to create their own residency in Vegas.

How Shania Twain Overcame Criticism

Shania Twain released her self-titled debut album back in 1993. At the time, it didn’t do well on the charts or with critics. She released The Woman in Me two years later, which changed everything. The record sold over 20 million copies and a Grammy Award. While fans were swooning over her lyrics, some naysayers were focused on her appearance of all things.

“I was criticized as an artist. I’m surprised I ever had any hits actually when I read them now. So for example, part of the quote from one of my reviews was: ‘She’s America’s best-paid lap dancer in Nashville. She’s hot, but can she sing? Is Shania just a flash in the pan? The most famous midriff in Nashville.’ So yeah, I ended up having hits anyway. Very satisfying,” Twain said on her Apple Music radio show, “Home Now.”

Critics heavily bashed Shania Twain for her 1995 hit,  “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under.” 

“And what I just quoted were all quotes based on that first single from the ‘Woman In Me’ album,” she continued. “I wrote the song. And I was a little bit hurt, I guess, at the harsh critics, not focusing on the music. And the fans just wiped all of that hurt away and made the song one of my biggest hits. Thank you, fans.”
