Shania Twain is coming to BST 

Global superstar Shania Twain is making her BST Hyde Park debut on Sunday 7 July 2024! Shania Twain, born Eilleen Regina Edwards on August 28, 1965, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, is a highly acclaimed Canadian singer and songwriter who rose to international fame in the 1990s. Her remarkable journey from a difficult childhood to becoming one of the best-selling female artists in country music history is both inspiring and influential.

Twain’s childhood was marked by hardship and poverty. Her parents struggled financially, and she often had to help raise her younger siblings. Tragically, her parents died in a car accident when she was just 21, leaving her to care for her family.

Despite these challenges, Twain’s passion for music burned brightly from a young age. She began singing in bars to support her family and soon caught the attention of record executives. In 1993, she released her self-titled debut album, “Shania Twain,” which achieved moderate success in North America.

However, it was her second album, “The Woman in Me,” released in 1995, that catapulted Twain to superstardom. The album’s blend of country and pop influences, coupled with Twain’s powerful vocals and charismatic stage presence, struck a chord with audiences worldwide. Hits like “Any Man of Mine” and “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” topped the charts and solidified her status as a country music icon.

Twain’s third studio album, “Come On Over,” released in 1997, further cemented her place in music history. With smash hits like “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” the album became the best-selling country album of all time and one of the best-selling albums ever by a female artist.

In addition to her musical achievements, Twain has also faced personal challenges, including a highly publicized divorce from her husband and producer, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, in 2010. Despite these setbacks, she has continued to pursue her passion for music with resilience and determination.

Twain’s impact on the music industry extends beyond her record-breaking sales and awards. She has inspired countless artists with her groundbreaking fusion of country and pop, paving the way for a new generation of crossover stars. Her influence can be heard in the music of artists ranging from Taylor Swift to Carrie Underwood.

Throughout her career, Twain has remained true to herself and her unique artistic vision. With her powerful voice, infectious energy, and indomitable spirit, she continues to captivate audiences around the world, leaving an indelible mark on the history of music.

A household name for over three decades and “the Queen of Country Pop”, Shania has left an indelible mark on the face of modern music – a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning artist and one of the most celebrated performers of our time.

Joining the line-up are special guests The Corrs, with more names to be announced. The Corrs are Ireland’s first family of music, a multi-million-selling sibling quartet who have conquered the world with a seamless blend of sleek pop rock, lush harmonies and Celtic folk trimmings.
