It will have been 13 years since the multi-award winning artist last toured the UK and Ireland (on 2004’s Up! Tour) and tickets go the shows go on sale on Friday, 29 September 2017 at 10am.
The multi-platinum, multi-award winner is preparing for the release of her new album Now on 29 September. Containing the singles ‘Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed’ and ‘Life’s About To Get Good’, it’s the first album where Twain has been both the sole songwriter and co-producer.
Revealing her excitement over her forthcoming tour dates, Shania Twain said in a statement: “It’s time to get back out there and give the music a chance to live a life!”
