Concert Review: Shania Twain and the best backup singers EVER
...and Canada's Country Queen did not disappoint!
After almost a decade of not touring and two years of residency in Las Vegas, Shania brought the show to her Stampede loving fans and it was wonderful. Unless, of course, you hate theatrics, funny crowd interaction and loads of cowgirl BLING.
WERK IT SHANIA!
When she had some fans on stage and they were sitting around a camp fire signing (that happened)...the sole man from Calgary got up and started dancing with one of the American girls. He flipped her over and her shirt came off revealing her leopard print bra. Now, I'm not going to say I wasn't slightly mortified for her, but like, come on, she really should get clothes that fit her. Way to go Dave. *air high five*
Besides Dave, the other supporting cast of the night that brought the show from "awesome" to "MAGICAL UNICORN EXPRESS" were Shania's backup singers.
I will tell you that I recognized them right away...probably because I am constantly doing "Whatever happened to the spiky haired b4-4 singers" posts and know the non-guido looking version of them. I yelled to everyone in my section that it was RyanDan and they were like - lay off the Stampede crack. THEN, Shania introduced them and justice was served to the disbelievers.
I would be lying if I told you I didn't leave the concert yelling "That was the best b4-4 concert anyone has EVER been to" on my way to buy deep fried pickles on the Stampede grounds.
After a night of glitz, glamor, Shania and RyanDan - it's doubtful that anything will top it this Stampede. It's one for the books.
