Shania Up for More Dates

Tour extended into the summer

December 2, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Having taken a three-year break from touring following the monstrous success of 1999's Come on Over, Shania Twain has been back at it with a vengeance. The crossover country star released Up! a year ago and began a long string of North American dates in September that will wrap on December 20th in Las Vegas.

And the shows keep coming: Twain will break briefly for the holidays before kicking off a twenty-seven-date run on January 20th in Helsinki. Her second North American itinerary will begin on April 6th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and stretch thirty-seven dates into mid-June.

"I want this show to be a huge party," Twain said earlier this year. "The stage will be set up in a way that puts me in the middle of my fans, which is right where I want to be."

Song Stories

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
