Just a few months after welcoming the biggest country music star of the ‘90s out of retirement, Target Center will welcome back that decade’s biggest female country singer, Shania Twain – who’s calling this her last go-round.
Twain announced a July 28 date at the Minneapolis arena, tickets for which go on sale March 13 at 10 a.m. for $46-$136 through AXS.com or the arena box office. Her first local gig since 2004, it falls about halfway through her 48-city tour, which she’s calling the Rock This Country Tour.
“"This is my last tour, so I'm going to make the most of it," Twain, 49, said on “Good Morning America” while announcing the shows Wednesday. "I want to go out with a bang."
The Canadian singer still holds the record for the top-selling country music album of all time -- and best-selling album of any genre by a female artist -- with 1997’s “Come on Over,” which sold more than 40 million copies worldwide with hit singles such as “You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.” She went on hiatus after a 2004 tour and battled her way through vocal problems until this past December, when she made her comeback with a series of shows at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas -- akin to how fellow ‘90s goliath Garth Brooks came out of retirement.
Unlike Brooks, though, Twain won’t be turning her Target Center date into a marathon, as she’s scheduled to perform in Moline, Iowa’s iWireless Center two nights before and Allstate Arena outside Chicago the night after Minneapolis.
