Shania Twain stayed good on the promise to give fans the show of a lifetime Saturday night on the Charlottetown waterfront.
The country music superstore took the stage at 9 p.m. at the Charlottetown Event Grounds.
The highly-anticipated concert saw fans gather from all Canadian provinces and more than 20 U.S. states.
Twain was joined on stage by 11 musicians, three other singers and six dancers from her Las Vegas show.
The concert also saw performances by Corey Hart and Trinity Bradshaw.
The show was Twain’s first in Atlantic Canada in 15 years. Charlottetown was bustling throughout the day before the concert, with some fans lining up eight hours before the show began.
Two of those fans are Shawn Lucas and his girlfriend Karin Pickard who came from Newfoundland to take in the show. They are long time fans and “just cannot believe she is in P.E.I and so close we can come to the concert.”
Jessica Amyoony is from Dartmouth, N.S. made the journey to see the concert.
“I came all the way over especially for Shania Twain…I have been a fan ever since I was a kid and this is a dream come true.”
If Amyoony had a chance to speak with Twain she would tell her what an inspiration she has been to her and that she “has an amazing voice.”
“Her voice is an experience and she takes you somewhere where only music can take you.”
