December 6, 2022 (Buffalo, NY) – Today, five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning legend and the best-selling female artist in country music history Shania Twain announced the second leg of her 2023 Queen of Me Tour. Due to phenomenal demand following the wildly successful announcement of the first leg, Shania is adding 19 new fall dates to her highly anticipated tour. The tour is in support of Shania’s forthcoming album Queen of Me, out February 3, 2023 - pre-order/pre-save HERE.
Produced by Live Nation, leg two kicks off on Thursday, October 12th in San Antonio, TX at AT&T Center with stops across North America in Nashville, TN, Toronto, ON, Buffalo, NY, Edmonton, AB and more before wrapping up on Tuesday, November 14 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
The Queen of Me Tour marks one of Shania Twain’s biggest tours to date with over 70 dates taking place across North America and Europe next year. This is also her first tour in nearly five years, following a highly successful residency run in Las Vegas.
Shania and Live Nation have announced that $1 of every ticket purchased to Shania’s “Queen Of Me” Tour will be donated to SKC.

This evening, Shania Twain will also receive the Music Icon award at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards. As the top-selling female country pop artist of all time, Twain is being honored for her record-breaking career which has spanned over four decades. With such enormous hits like "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!," Twain has expertly bridged the gap between country and pop music, leaving an everlasting impact on the music industry and pop culture. The 2022 People’s Choice Awards will air on NBC and E! at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.
In addition to receiving the award, Twain will take the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits as well as her new song “Waking Up Dreaming” off her forthcoming sixth album ‘Queen of Me,’ set for release on February 3, 2023 via Republic Records. It will mark her first return to the PCAs stage since 2005, when she took home the award for Favorite Country Female Singer.

MORE ABOUT SHANIA TWAIN
Last month, she made a grand return with her latest single “Waking Up Dreaming.” Right out of the gate, Vulture hailed it as “a motivational, synth-laden pop-rocker with few of the country touches you’d expect from Twain, all of the glamour.” Rolling Stone raved, “It gradually builds to a Shania-worthy maximalist sound, a dance party of gleaming guitars and unfettered bliss.” People affirmed, “Shania Twain is baring it all with her new era of music,” and The Tennessean proclaimed, “Country icon Shania Twain’s season in the sun continues with the release of ‘Waking Up Dreaming’.” Perhaps The TODAY Show summed it up best as “an absolute bop.”
“Waking Up Dreaming” marked her first release in five years since 2017’s critically acclaimed, Now, which bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Top Country Albums Chart upon arrival. It also arrives on the heels of her blockbuster career-spanning documentary Not Just A Girl—streaming on Netflix now. It was notably produced by Mercury Studios and directed by Joss Crowley. To accompany the film, she also presented the compilation album Not Just A Girl (The Highlights) available HERE. And in other news this once-in-a-generation Renaissance Woman joins the star-studded cast of Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration in the role of Mrs. Potts, premiering on ABC December 15 and streaming on Disney+ as of December 16.
