For the first time in 11 years, Shania Twain is hitting the road! The singer announced her Rock This Country Tour on Good Morning America today (March 4).
“Finally, after 11 years, I am going back on tour,” Twain told GMA host Robin Roberts, to cheers from the show’s crew. “It’s been a long time.”
Twain’s Rock This Country Tour kicks off on June 5 in Seattle, Wash. She’ll spend most of June playing across Canada, then head back into the U.S. for more shows. Dates in California, New York, Texas and more states are currently scheduled through the end of August. Canadian actor and country musician Wes Mack will serve as Twain’s opening act in Seattle and Canada, and Gavin DeGraw will take over opener duties after that.
Tickets for all Rock This Country Tour dates go on sale to the general public on March 13, but Twain’s website is offering a pre-sale beginning March 10. A complete list of currently scheduled concerts is below; ticketing details are also available on Twain’s website.
Twain released her Shania: Still the One Live From Vegas CD/DVD on March 3. The album features material from her Las Vegas residency, which wrapped up in December. It’s been 13 years since she last released an album of new material.
Shania has announced two Florida dates so far!
7/15 — Jacksonville, Fla. — Jacksonville Veterans Memorial
7/16 — Miami, Fla. — American Airlines Arena
This is a GREAT story about a woman who got revenge on the coworkers who kept stealing her lunch . . . and it's a MILLION times more effective than a passive-aggressive note.
A guy posted on Reddit.com that his wife was having trouble with coworkers taking her lunch from the fridge at work. So he made her some buffalo wings . . . but covered them in ghost pepper chili powder and Blair's 4am Reserve.
If you don't know, ghost peppers are one of the world's hottest chilies, and Blair's 4am Reserve is one of the hottest hot sauces known to man. It's 7,476 times spicier than Tabasco.
He ate a couple wings to make sure they wouldn't KILL anybody, and says they were REALLY hot. Nothing would cut the heat, and the ghost chilies actually got HOTTER as time went on.
So his wife brought them to work, and just before lunch, they heard someone YELL from the kitchen. It was one of the younger guys she works with . . . and he ran to the bathroom and wound up vomiting uncontrollably.
No one has touched her lunch since.
Luke Bryan is still in the early stages of writing songs for his next album. He says, quote, "We're going to take a month or two to just write. I've got 10 or 12 more to cut. I wouldn't say that I'm 100% as prepared as I want to be."
He's also still on the road, which is great because he can test those songs out to see how they play. Quote, "Some of these new songs . . . we may be trying them out on live audiences."
But when it comes time to choose which ones will be singles, well, that's up to his two sons. Quote, "I gotta do the Bo and Tate test with them . . . whatever they gravitate to is always a good choice for a single.
