Shania Twain returns triumphant to Atlanta
August 2, 2015
Shania Twain joined the growing list of artists who are coming through Atlanta in 2015 as part of a farewell tour when she played to a sold out Philips Arena in Atlanta on Saturday night. The big difference between Shania Twain and Barry Manilow or The Who is that it has been more than 10 years since she was here last.
Shania Twain has spent the last several years on a permanent show in Las Vegas and her new “Rock This Country” tour has plenty of Vegas in it with an incredible lightshow, spectacular pyrotechnics and lots of glamor, gimmicks and glitz on stage.
As would be expected on a farewell tour the setlist was comprised almost entirely of her catalog of popular music but what is surprising is that she only has four studio albums from which to draw. Nevertheless she played for almost two hours and provided plenty of entertainment for her enthusiastic fans.
The set had a number of highlights including a duet with opening act Gavin DeGraw, a tour of Philips Arena in a specially made vehicle and a mechanical bull.
But for the fans it comes back to the music and while she saved “Man, I feel like a woman” for the encore it was “You’re still the one” and “From this moment on” that provided the real highlight of the slickly presented and produced evening.
