Long before Taylor Swift there was another queen of pop country whose music had taken the world by storm. Currently touring in celebration of her third consecutive #1 album, NOW, tonights show at Qudos Bank Arena Sydney will be Shania Twain’s first Australian shows since the Come On Over Tour of 1999.
Shania’s radiating presence was felt the moment the lights dim and she made her stunning entrance into the Arena kicking things off with Life’s About To Get Good establishing an authentic connection between her and the audience, some lucky fans even got to take selfies with the songstress. Feeling almost like a Vegas Show, Shania took tonights performance to new heights with her stage props, engaging visuals, fantastic back up dancers, kick ass band and stunning costume changes. I especially loved her ruby red boots.
The true highlight of the show tonight, outside of her golden personality is in her voice, it was just so magnificent, evident when she sat alone with her acoustic and sang Still The One. If boot scooting is more your thing don’t worry there was plenty of that to be had too. The crowd was more than ecstatic singing along and stomping those feet to, Don’t Be Stupid, That Don’t Impress Me Much and the big finale Man I Feel Like A Woman!
Up on stage tonight Shania was absolutely awe inspiring, delivering a dazzling performance that captivated and tantalised. It has been 19 years since she was last down under and it was worth the wait for Shania to finally come on over. Sydney there is a second show on Saturday 15th December bringing Shania’s Australian Tour to a close, so don’t miss out. Shania Twain you are still the one.
