Country megastar Shania Twain took to the stage at Pryzm on Friday evening (September 29) to play two intimate sets in celebration of her number one album Queen of Me.

Despite her five Grammys, Twain made karaoke a central part of the night, and invited a fan to sing Any Man of Mine.

The singer also turned to the crowd for a best dressed contest. The winner joined her for a karaoke rendition of her smash single That Don’t Impress Me Much. Shania even changed the iconic lyrics to: “So, you’re from Kingston? That don’t impress me much.”

The singer said: “I don’t get to do this often! It’s so nice to see all your faces,” as the lights raised around the room. The Kingston shows mark the end of the singer’s arena tour, which saw Twain play in cities such as Nashville, New York and Manchester, to crowds as large as 19,500.

Playing her greatest hits

Wearing a sheer black dress, the Canadian singer opened with her hit song Come On Over. In a brief pause, she played around with harmonies as she said intimate venues are made for singing: “But you can sing this next song however you like!” she joked, as she played Honey, I’m Home.

The chart toppers kept coming, as Twain played her most recent single Giddy Up which got the crowd dancing and singing along.

Slowing down the set, the hit maker played her fan favourite song You’re Still The One with just a guitar, which moved the crowd.

Twain closed her electric set with her iconic smash single Man! I Feel Like a Woman which had the room bouncing. If there is one thing Shania has proven, it is that she has still got it.

After the set, the singer was presented with an album sales plaque for six million copies of Queen of Me sold, to which she thanked the crowd. She made sure to stop and sign many autographs on the front row afterwards.

It was a night not to be missed, proved so by tickets selling out in a matter of seconds.

Shania Twain, you impressed Kingston much.
