This. Is. So. Exciting! Shania Twain shocked her fans on Wednesday, Aug. 16 when she surprisingly announced she is going on tour again in 2018. The 51-year-old country star revealed the amazing news with the help of Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on his late night show.
Before announcing Shania as his next guest, Jimmy plugged the Queen of Country's new album, NOW, and proclaimed tickets for her latest North American Tour, Shania Twain NOW, will be going on sale on Friday, Aug. 25. "She is a global superstar and the top-selling female country artist of all time. She's going to release her highly-anticipated new album, NOW, next month [and] we're also happy to announce that Shania will be going on tour in 2018," the 42-year-old emcee said before Shania performed her new song, "Swingin' with My Eyes Closed."
Understandably, Shania's loyal fans couldn't contain their excitement over the singer's huge announcement. "Yes, happiest day! @ShaniaTwain is going on tour 🙏🏻🙏🏻😍😍," one person wrote on Twitter with another adding, "Shania Twain is going on tour, life couldn't be better!" The news is extra awesome because it comes two years after Shania went on her Farewell Tour after a more than decade-long hiatus from performing.
"I’m finally, after 11 years, going back on tour. This is going be a big, big tour for me, because it’s going to be my last. It’s a celebration tour for me," she said on Good Morning America at the time. A source additionally told Closer Weekly that Shania was viewing her farewell tour as a "victory lap" before retiring from the music industry. "Shania’s said this tour feels like a closing of one chapter of her life — it’s like a victory lap [for her] audiences across the US and Canada... She’s really looking forward to it," an insider revealed. We're so glad Shania has changed her mind and is going on another tour!
