One of the world's best-selling female artist in history, Shania Twain, has announced her first North American tour in more than 11 years entitled ROCK THIS COUNTRY. It is also supposed to be her final tour as well.
The 48 date run comes hot on the heels of her hit two-year residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Shania's tour kicks off in North America on June 5 in Seattle, WA where she will perform her extensive catalog of iconic hits in a brand new production for fans coast to coast in major US cities such as New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Chicago, among others. Additionally, the tour will hit Canadian cities including Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Montreal, presented by AEG Live.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday March 13th.
"This is a celebration tour. It's party time! The ROCK THIS COUNTRY tour will have a different spirit than my past tours," said Twain. "It's a Shania they've never seen before. A lot of years have gone by and I've got a lot more to share."
Shania has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries with over 75 million albums sold, and 17 top 10 singles. Three of Shania's albums (The Woman In Me, Come On Over, Up! ) reached Diamond certification, making her the only artist to have three consecutive albums sell more than 10 million copies in the US.-DocFB

Apparently just posting the photo to our Instagram account wasn't enough. A photo of PRINCE from his Junior High Basketball team has went viral in a short amount of time.
"Prince was an excellent player," basketball coach Richard Robinson told the Star Tribune. But apparently, Prince wasn't too pleased being the sixth or seventh man, and wanted to be on the starting lineup: "He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times." He sure showed those starting players, huh?
