LAS VEGAS, July 24, 2014 — Numerous sources confirm that popular Canadian-born country music singer-songwriter Shania Twain will wrap up her two-year Las Vegas “residency” at Caesar’s Palace with a grand finale performance on Dec. 13.

That show will conclude her remarkably successful Sin City run two years after her memorable arrival when she rode into town on horseback, surrounded by a veritable herd of the animals so large that traffic on the Strip had to be halted.

Not surprisingly, her regular stage extravaganza boasted a similar theme, featuring trained horses, an airborne motorcycle and, of course, Ms. Twain herself accompanied by her live backup band.

“I can’t thank Las Vegas enough,” Twain stated in a release, calling the city “home.” She emphasized the latter point by drawing attention to the after-school program she established in an impoverished Las Vegas school. It was her way of giving something back to Vegas after scoring such a significant success in that gambling and entertainment Mecca.

By the time she wraps up her Vegas engagement, Ms. Twain will have performed in excess of 100 shows. Following on the heels of Celine Dion’s long-running, dynamite show, Ms. Twain was the second Canadian female vocalist to become a notable box office favorite here with locals and tourists alike
