Man! If you feel like seein’ Shania Twain in Des Moines next summer, you’re in luck.
The country star announced Wednesday night her plans to return to the Hawkeye state on July 25, 2018, for a one-night-only show at Wells Fargo Arena as part of the "Now" tour. Tickets to the show go on sale Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. via Hy-VeeTix.com, at the or participating Des Moines and Ames Hy-Vee locations.
Twain, a five-time Grammy Award winning country singer, unveils the Des Moines tour date two years to the month since her last appearance in Iowa’s capital city. The star stopped at Wells Fargo Arena on Aug. 6, 2015, as part of the “Rock This Country” tour, which brought an estimated 13,000 country fans to downtown Des Moines.
The Canadian-born singer announced earlier this year plans for a fifth studio album, titled “Now,” which is due out on Sept. 29. The album mark’s Twain’s full-length follow-up to 2002’s “Up!” and first studio release since Twain’s 11-year break from touring. The album’s first single, “Life’s About To Get Good,” dropped in June.
Twain, 51, is known for top-charting country hits such as “Man! I Feel Like A Woman,” “You’re Still The One” “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Any Man of Mine.” Twain is considered one of the best-selling country artists in the genre’s history, with Forbes reporting 1997’s “Come On Over” selling a reported 40 million units worldwide.
Following pop star Lorde, who appears at Wells Fargo Arena in March, Twain is the second act to announce a show at the venue in 2018. Foo Fighters, Chris Stapleton, Bob Seger and Katy Perry round out scheduled shows at the arena for 2017.
