Shania Twain Centre May Close Shop
Shania Twain's Still the One Las Vegas concert extravaganza is off to a strong start, but the fate of the Shania Twain Centre, the tourist attraction located in the Canadian singer's hometown of Timmins, Ont., is uncertain.
According to Country Music Tattle Tale, the shrine to country music's best-selling female artist may have to close its doors -- citing money issues as the deciding factor. The museum, which opened in 2001, has been losing money for quite some time and has cost local taxpayers a considerable chunk of change to remain open.
It is rumored that Twain moved her personal memorabilia from the multi-million dollar building last summer as the Timmins city council began weighing out all the options.
Twain may be heartbroken over the loss of the Shania Twain Centre, but the superstar entertainer certainly has much to keep her busy these days. The 'You're Still the One' singer kicked off Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace on Dec. 1 to overwhelmingly positive reviews.
“My vision is to bring the atmosphere of each song alive through multi-dimension sensory [experiences] and share the journey of my life and career with the audience from a unique perspective,” the singer said in June.
Twain will resume her Still the One Las Vegas residency on March 19, with shows scheduled through April 10.
