Shania Twain to Headline Calgary Stampede
CALGARY – Shania Twain is headlining the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede with two sold out shows on July 9 2014. The two shows sold out in minutes.
“Shania Twain is still the one we love,” stated the CES.
Tickets to Twain’s announced July 9 concert sold out within mere minutes of the public on-sale time of 10AM on Friday. That record sellout led the Stampede to add another show for July 10th. Tickets for the July 10 concert went on sale at 10:30AM. By shortly after 11AM all of those tickets were also snapped up by fans.
Twain is staging the two concerts on the Wednesday and Thursday of Stampede 2014, as part of the Virgin Mobile Stampede Concert Series, proudly presented by the Calgary Stampede and Stampede Concerts Inc.
We knew demand would be strong…
“We knew demand would be strong, but even we have been awed by the volume of Shania Twain fans eager to see her at the Stampede,” says Adam Oppenheim, managing director, Stampede Concerts Inc. “It was a tremendous coup that Shania chose the Stampede as her first Canadian concert in a decade. We’re thrilled that we were able to offer a second concert, making twice as many fans very happy.”
Shania Still Got it Going on!
“We’re looking forward to announcing more stellar concert offerings to everyone soon,” says Oppenheim.
An amazing and accomplished singer and songwriter, Twain is a phenomenon. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide, she is the top-selling female country artist of all time; has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries; has the eighth-biggest selling album of all time in the U.S. and 18 top 10 songs, eight of which reached number1.
