Fans Treated to a Shania Twain Horseback Arrival for New Gigs

Most stars turn up in a limo, but Shania Twain's horseback arrival at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Nov. 14, 2012 has set the benchmark. No more limos, guys, the bar has been raised.

Twain was marketing her new show, which is titled 'Shania: Still the One' and opens Dec. 1, 2012 at the Colosseum. The 47-year-old singer didn't just ride a single horse down the strip, oh no, that wouldn't be ridiculous enough. Instead, she sat atop a horse among a herd of 40 other horses in a slow, organized stampede. Now, of course, a real stampede is neither slow nor organized, but promoters used the term to generate excitement for Shania Twain's horseback arrival. "We could either lose a few hundred dollars inside or come out and see what kind of spectacle she puts on," said Steve Huffman, a UPS manager from Charleston, W.Va., who watched with his wife, Debi, from an overhead pedestrian walkway, according to Yahoo News. 

Despite releasing her self titled album way back in 1993, Shania only has four studio albums to her name, with The Woman in Me, Come on Over and Up all being subsequently released. Regardless her relatively small output, she is considered to be one of the country-music scene's greats, and her two-year residency at the L.A hotel, where stars such as Elton John and Jerry Seinfield perform, is testament to her influence as a musician.
