Shania Twain to launch North American tour in June

The Detroit News

Country superstar Shania Twain is headed to Metro Detroit for the first time in more than a decade.

Her "Rock This Country" tour drops by the Palace of Auburn Hills on July 25, Twain's camp announced Wednesday. Tickets, $46-$136, go on sale at 10 a.m. March 13, with various pre-sales launching in the days prior.

The show marks Twain's first area concert since a two-night stand at the Palace in October 2003.

Twain's 48-date tour also includes a July 11 show at Grand Rapids' Van Andel Arena. The outing kicks off in Seattle in June and wraps in Fresno, Calif., in August.

The tour comes on the heels of Twain's two-year residency at the Colosseum at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas, which wrapped up in December.

"This is a celebration tour. It's party time! The ROCK THIS COUNTRY tour will have a different spirit than my past tours," Twain said in a press release Wednesday. "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."

Twain rose to superstardom with the release of her album "Come On Over" in 1997. It became the best-selling country album of all time and the best-selling album by a female artist.
