Superstar singer-songwriter Shania Twain’s number of Las Vegas residencies is starting to rival the tally of Cher farewell tours – and I live for it. The bestselling female country pop artist of all time is returning to Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood with her latest headliner show “Come On Over: The Vegas Residency – All the Hits!,” and the 24 performances kick off May 10.

“I am excited to be returning to Vegas for my third residency, ‘Come On Over.’ Performing in Vegas is a huge honor, and I love this theater,” Twain said in a news release. “The audience can expect all the hits, with a few fan favorites from the new album in there, too. I am in a celebratory mood, and there is nowhere better to party than Vegas, so I hope you all join me!”

Twain recently released multiple expanded U.S. and International Diamond Editions of her third studio album, November 1997’s “Come On Over.” In celebration of the benchmark album’s 25th anniversary and more than 40 million-plus in global sales, the U.S. and global versions of “Come On Over” have been remastered for the first time.

Twain is one of my favorite artists because she is beautiful on the inside and outside. Her backstory with her parents and siblings in Canada is incredible. She rode down Las Vegas Boulevard on a horse to celebrate her first residency, “Still the One,” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in 2012. I loved “Still the One,” directed by Raj Kapoor, with its horses, dancing violinists, a flying motorcycle, gorgeous costumes by Marc Bouwer and stellar musicians and dancers.

Twain opened a Shania Kids Can clubhouse in North Las Vegas during her first residency. She served as the celebrity grand marshal in the 2013 Great Santa Run. She is a Nevada Ballet Theatre Woman of the Year. She’s a stunning woman, and I love many of her hits – I still hope to use “From This Moment On” in my for-now-pipe-dream wedding.

My late colleague, dear friend and mentor Robin Leach (“Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous”) told me Twain was one of his favorite interviews ever because she was so genuine, warm and humble. I missed “Let’s Go!” because I wasn’t living in Las Vegas at the time, so I greatly look forward to “Come On Over.” I will!

As with previous residencies, five-time Grammy-winner Twain, Live Nation Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment have announced that $1 of every ticket purchased to “Come on Over” will be donated to Shania Kids Can. Donations from ticket sales have driven more than $1.5 million to SKC providing critical funding for existing programs.

Established in 2010 by Twain, SKC provides programs that educate, inspire and empower children in vulnerable communities to achieve their full potential, increasing their chance for equality and opportunities for success. For more information about Shania Kids Can, go to shaniakidscan.com.

Twain is the top-selling female country pop artist of all time, with six albums released and more than 100 million albums sold worldwide. Her many hits include “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”

Twain was the first artist in history to release three consecutive diamond-certified albums. Twain’s second residency in Las Vegas, “Let’s Go!” at Bakkt Theater, ended in September 2022 ahead of national and world tours. Twain released her sixth full-length album “Queen of Me” on Feb. 3.

The 24 performances on sale are May 10-11, 15, 17-18, 23 and 25-26; Aug. 23-24, 29 and 31; Sept. 1, 4 and 6-7; Nov. 29-30; and Dec. 4, 6-7, 11 and 13-14. Shows begin at 8 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to
