With a hotly anticipated tour kicking off in Seattle on June 5, a massively successful Vegas residency banked and a catalogue of new music in the works, it’s no wonder Canadian superstar Shania Twain is “having more fun than ever!” Debuting new blonde tresses, Shania sat down with Entertainment Tonight during rehearsals for her 67-date 'Rock This Country' tour to give a sneak peek of what fans should expect to see at her show.

“The music has always been high energy but we’re going a little bit heavier on the guitars and punching it up with more pyro,” she revealed. “It’s just a rollercoaster, energy-power show. It’s rock and roll!”
During her time in Sin City, the 49-year-old singer performed for more than 300,000 fans and her show, Shania Twain: Still the One, reportedly grossed more than $40 million. She has announced that her Rock This Country tour, the 11th time she has hit the road, will be her last, but promises, “I have lots of records to make and lots of singing still to do. Just the touring end of it is something I want to move on from."

As great as it was to entertain fans in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Shania tells ET that, “by the time that I got to the end of Vegas, I realized that that static environment, as exciting as it was, was no way to say goodbye.” She wants her final run of live performances to be more personal, saying, “Going to the fans and bringing myself to them seemed the right way to do that.”
As far as the ‘From This Moment’ singer's goals are concerned, one of her greatest is releasing new music during her milestone 50th year. She will celebrate her birthday on August 28th and says that, “I want to be 50 and have new music out. Whether it will be the whole album or just a single, it doesn’t’ really matter,” adding, “As long as I have something to share with the fans. That’s my goal.”
The 'Rock This Country' tour will hit 11 Canadians cities this summer and fall, including: Vancouver (June 7th and 8th), Edmonton (June 11 and 12), Saskatoon (June 14), Winnipeg (June 15 Sept. 20), London (June 19 and June 20), Hamilton (June 22), Toronto (June 24, June 25 and Oct. 11), Ottawa (June 27), Montreal (June 28), Calgary (Sept. 17 and 18) and Quebec City (Oct. 9).
