Twain's Tragedy

Twain's Tragedy

Who: Shania Twain
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre
When: Thursday February 11, 1999

WHEN both SHANIA TWAIN'S parents were killed in a car crash, the 21-year-old vocalist was left the mother of her two younger siblings.

It must have been a devastating setback for the woman who, since the age of eight, had been encouraged by both parents to sing and perform in shopping centres, choirs or anywhere there was an audience.

Tickets to see SHANIA TWAIN at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Wednesday, February 11, went on sale yesterday.

Twain wrote her first song when she was 10 in the Canadian Northlands of Timmins.

Her self-titled Nashville debut album in 1993, based on demo material, yielded two singles WHOSE BED HAVE YOUR BOOTS BEEN UNDER and ANY MAN OF MINE. COME ON OVER, released in March this year, debuted at No.2 in the BILLBOARD charts, with more than 10million album sales thanks to songs BLACK EYES, BLUE TEARS, FROM THIS MOMENT ON and YOU'RE STILL THE ONE.
