Shania Twain heading back out on road
A Day to Remember, Helloween, Margo Price, Greensky Bluegrass also set dates
Country queen of the late ’90s Shania Twain has announced a new album and a tour to support it.
The upcoming album, Queen of Me, is her first album since 2017 and only her sixth original album overall and is set for release Feb. 3.
The subsequent Queen of Me Tour, her first road trek in five years, kicks off April 28 in Spokane, Washington.
The five-time Grammy-winning star and best-selling female artist in country music will be in our region later in the summer, stopping at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, near Cleveland, on June 30, Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, Illinois, on July 1, and Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville on July 15.
Priscilla Block will open the Cleveland and Chicago shows while Breland opens at Ruoff.
Twain is donating $1 of every ticket purchased to her SKC organization, which she established in 2010 to provide services to help children in times of crises and economic hardship.
