Let’s go girl.
Shania Twain had too many years on the sidelines to rest up for this Caesars Palace comeback. So don’t discourage her from riding an airborne motorcycle to the stage, gathering fans around a campfire or singing her best-remembered hit (“Still the One”) to a white horse.
The 47-year-old singer is better looking than the Trigger-serenading cowboys of yore, but still rekindles the old-Vegas/variety-TV days of dancing around on Western saloon sets and being swung around by male dancers.
The Colosseum show would have worked for Ann-Margret in the mid-’70s as much as it does now for the ’90s superstar, who occupies her own peculiar niche of show business.
“I’m not in the industry in the sense that I was when I started,” she noted last year while readying the Caesars debut. “I’m in a different place completely. I’m not a new artist starting out trying to make my way. I’m not trying to set my groove, I’m not trying to find my place. I’m not even trying to hold my place.”
