Shania Twain CD — Now. Per­form­ing Auck­land’s Spark Arena Tues­day, De­cem­ber 18 (SOLD OUT) and Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 19

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..

Yes folks, the wait is fi­nally over, with Shania Twain, the world’s top-sell­ing fe­male coun­try artist of all time hav­ing con­firmed that she will in­deed be per­form­ing in New Zealand for the very first time.

Her first show is sold out and the sec­ond is fast head­ing that way.

To prime you for th­ese much-an­tic­i­pated events we have a copy of her lat­est re­lease NOW. Con­tain­ing the sin­gles Life’s About To Get Good, Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed, Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl and We Got Some­thing They Don’t among its 16 stel­lar tracks it’s a must have for your mu­sic col­lec­tion.

With three con­sec­u­tive Di­a­mond (that’s sales of 10 mil­lion or more!) sell­ing al­bums to her credit — The Woman In Me, Come On Over and Up — fans just can’t get enough of the five-time Grammy award win­ning artist.

So what can you ex­pect to see her per­form dur­ing her show?

Apart from the afore­men­tioned sin­gles from NOW there’s a host of catchy tunes that could rate as pos­si­ble con­tenders — Poor Me, Let’s Kiss And make Up, I’m Al­right, Sol­dier and More Fun in­stantly spring to mind.

Then there’s the hits, and man are there plenty of those to choose from!

Look out for all time favourites such as You’re Still The One, From This Mo­ment, That Don’t Im­press Me Much and Man I Feel Like A Woman. And let’s not for­get about Honey I’m Home, Rock This Coun­try, I’m Gonna Getcha Good, Whose Bed Have Your Boots been Un­der and Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You) to name but a few!

Pick up a copy of NOW and grab a ticket to the show. Now, be­fore they’re all gone!

The en­ter­tain­ment phe­nom­e­non that is P!nk con­tin­ues to shock, stun and amaze, not the least with the an­nounce­ment of yet an­other (her fifth!) show at Spark Arena for her Beau­ti­ful Trauma tour.

We’ve got a copy of Beau­ti­ful Trauma up for grabs as the ideal pre­cur­sor to her up­com­ing shows. It con­tains awe­some sin­gles and top tracks such as What About Us, Beau­ti­ful Trauma, Re­venge, Se­crets, For Now, Bar­bies, and I Am Here.

Ex­pect to see those and hits and fan favourites such as Get The Party Started, Just Like A Pill, Try, Just Give Me A Rea­son, Just Like Fire, F**kin’ Per­fect (the clean ver­sion!), Raise Your Glass, Bow Me (One Last Kiss), So What, and Glit­ter In The Air among oth­ers, per­formed at the show.

There’s been a lot said about her live show, the first time she will have graced our shores since 2007. Ap­par­ently, the en­dur­ing pop star is at one point sus­pended up­side-down and dan­gling above the crowd, sup­ported only by a dancer-ac­ro­bat clutch­ing her left foot. Re­port­edly there was no har­ness (that might have to change in NZ!) as she climbs on to the mus­cu­lar man, pos­ing and twirling, some­how main­tain­ing a level of sen­su­al­ity through it all.

Oh, and she’s singing live the en­tire time — on key and belt­ing.

This is real dan­ger, folks. And the thrill that ac­com­pa­nies it, and bleeds into the rest of this mar­vel­lous two-hour per­for­mance, is some­thing of elec­tri­fy­ing, ad­dic­tive won­der. Through
