For the first time ever, an orchestrated stampede of more than 40 horses stopped all traffic on a portion of the famous Las Vegas Strip as Shania Twain marked her arrival into Las Vegas by making a grand entrance via horseback to her new home at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Fans and visitors lined the street in front of the iconic Caesars Palace fountains to welcome Shania as The Colosseum’s newest resident artist.

With Shania’s hits “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” and “Still The One” taking over the Strip, the international superstar showed the world that she is ready to rock the Las Vegas stage.

Tickets are still available for performances beginning Dec. 1, 2012. Show dates are:

Ah yes, I remember the good ol’ days when I worked for Clear Channel Entertainment and I, and a handful of colleagues, literally carried Shania around the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California as the opening segment of one of her shows. Good times….
