FARGO -- The Fargodome is asking Shania Twain fans to come on over this fall when the country superstar performs here with Gavin DeGraw.
Fargodome officials announced Thursday morning that Twain, 49, will bring her newly extended “Rock This Country” tour to Fargo on Sept. 21.
Her first tour in 11 years, which kicks off June 5 in Seattle and concludes Oct. 11 in Toronto, also will stop in Winnipeg on Sept. 20, Sioux Falls, S.D., on Sept. 23 and Minneapolis on Sept. 26.
Twain sold out the Fargodome when she first performed here Dec. 5, 1998, drawing a crowd of 24,764 -- the venue’s sixth-largest concert since opening in 1992. She also performed there to a crowd of more than 18,000 in 2004.
Tickets for Twain’s Fargo concert will go on sale at 9 a.m. May 15 for $46 to $136, not including fees, at the Fargodome box office, www.inforumtix.com or by calling (855) 694-6367. A pre-sale also is available next week from 10 a.m. Tuesday to 10 p.m. Thursday at www.ShaniaTwain.com .
Twain first broke out in country music with debut album “Shania Twain” in 1993, and became an international superstar with crossover pop appeal with 1997’s “Come on Over,” the best-selling country album of all time.
But after her last studio album, 2002’s “Up!”, Twain stepped out of the limelight. She retired from performing in 2004, saying in her 2011 autobiography that the move was prompted by her weakening singing voice.
She later was diagnosed with dysphonia and completed rehabilitation to treat the lesions on her vocal cords that were affecting her singing and speaking.
Last December, she wrapped up “Shania: Still the One,” a two-year Las Vegas residency of 105 shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. She released a live album that documented the residency, “Still the One: Live From Vegas,” on March 2.
On March 4, Twain told “Good Morning America” that she will release her fifth studio album after her tour while she is 50 years old. She’ll celebrate her 50th birthday on Aug. 28.
