 Shania Twain
Shania Twain
Shania Twain's show at Caesars Palace is a welcome return for fans of the woman who is one of the biggest stars in country pop music.Twain's 1997 album "Come On Over" skyrocketed the singer to worldwide fame. The album became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician and the best-selling country music album of all time. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, Twain has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, including 50 million albums in the United States. She's the top-selling female country artist of all time and has multiplatinum album sales in 32 countries.Her production at the Colosseum is called Shania: Still the One and she definitely proves she still has that special something that first made her famous.After being away from performing so long it's only fitting that Twain make a big, splashy entrance at the beginning of her show and she succeeds by flying in above the stage on a motorcycle in a sparkling cat suit before launching into "I'm Gonna Getcha Good," the first of many of the hit songs she performs throughout the night.Fans will be delighted to hear all of Twain's familiar tunes during the course of the show like "Don't be Stupid," "You Win My Love," "Whose Bed Have your Boots Been Under?" and "Up!"The stage transforms several times during the show and the next segment features a very country feel with a saloon set and the performers dressed in Old West-style costumes. Performers include a live band with several fiddle players, four energetic male dancers and three backup singers, including Twain's sister Carrie Ann Brown and RyanDan, a Canadian musical, songwriting and producing duo, consisting of identical twins Ryan and Dan Kowarsky.The mood changes to a more rock/pop style and so does Twain's costume -- to a leopard-print outfit similar to the one she wore in the video for "That Don't Impress Me Much." She sings that song, as well as other favorites like "Honey I'm Home" and "If You're not In it for Love (I'm Outta Here!)"Next, the stage is transformed into a campfire setting with a faux fire and a woodsy background on the Colosseum's massive screens. Twain brings a few lucky people up on stage from the audience to sit around the fire and sing acoustic songs. She talks about her favorite memories of singing as a child and with her family before performing a bit of music a capella with her backup singers.After a couple of tunes sung around the campfire, Twain sings a song that might be less familiar to people, but is the newest one she has recorded, "Today is Your Day."One of the biggest highlights of the show comes when she launches into her two huge hit ballads. She wears a flowing white gown and arrives on stage on the back of a beautiful white horse. The screens project birch trees and falling snow in the background as she sings "You're Still the One." The horse is led offstage and billowing white curtains descend as Twain sings "From This Moment On."The show ends with a bang with one of Twain's biggest hits, "Man, I Feel Like a Woman." Confetti is blasted out over the audience and S-H-A-N-I-A is spelled out in massive lights. Throughout the show Twain talks to the audience and clearly enjoys being back on stage. "I realize what I've been missing, thanks to you," she says. Judging by the multiple standing ovations the crowd gives her it's clear they have missed her too.-- By Kristine McKenzie

Don't expect to see a lot of pirates at Treasure Island. Arrr...we know...the name of the hotel suggests exactly the opposite. But somehow, as the years have gone by, Treasure Island (often referred to as just "the TI") has shed its "Ahoy, matey!" attitude in favor of a more contemporary, adult-oriented outlook.Now that's not to say you won't see things at Treasure Island that bring to mind the world of buccaneers and buried gold. The architecture and exterior of this place -- which includes a beautiful manmade cove, a boardwalk built from wooden planks and a couple of ships that look like they've sailed the high seas -- definitely suggests you're in for a swashbuckling good time.However, even though the pirate theme has been toned down, there are many other good reasons why you should stay here. You don't need a treasure map to tell you that Treasure Island has got an amazing location. And you won't need a car or a taxi to get around...just a pair of sprightly feet. Situated near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is connected via a free tram to The Mirage, and it's within walking distance of a handful of must-visit resorts (Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Caesars Palace) and four must-shop attractions (the Fashion Show mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, The Forum Shops at Caesars and The LINQ Promenade).Treasure Island also boasts really nice rooms. (No hammocks here!) So you'll enjoy fairly luxurious accommodations -- contemporary décor with all the necessary modern amenities -- for a reasonable price (not the cheapest in town but not the most expensive either). And if you splurge on a suite...well, you'll feel like you've plundered the place.Warm weather days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Fiery Rock Shrimp, or get a drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar." There's even a luau-style dinner show called "Island Heat LuWOW."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you'll discover several rollicking bars and restaurants. Things get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You can drink beer, watch bikini bull riding contests, listen to live bands and line dance. The restaurant specializes in barbecuing (including three different kinds of mouth-watering ribs) and has windows that look out onto the Strip.Señor Frog's is infamous for its party scene in Mexico (and, of course, now at Treasure Island). Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth, sitting on "butt" stools or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...and there are two outside areas in case you just want to chill out.For one heck of a good show, get tickets to "Mystère." It's the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility, "Mystère" will blow you away.Need a quick bite? Grab slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's and delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. For heartier meals in a casual setting, The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two wonderful options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steak House. Prime cuts of meat (think filet mignon, venison tenderloin, Colorado lamb and chateaubriand) as well as classic Italian specialties are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen. And you'll always find a fresh catch prepared to perfection at the Seafood Shack.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, you can partake of soothing and revitalizing treatments from around the world -- like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.And if you decide you want to avoid the crowds in the major malls, you can shop up a storm right at Treasure Island. Get everything from jewelry at TI Bling Co. and Bijoux Terner to fragrances at Perfrume Eleven and souvenirs at the Lobby Store and TI Gift Shop. Plus, there's a three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property anchored by CVS.So, without being too cliché, the pirate days of yore may have been tossed o'erboard at Treasure Island, but that doesn't matter...because you don't need cannons here to have a blast here.

Great location, awesome view
PostedNovember 11, 2013
Check in was quick, convinced the clerk to give us a strip view. Kahunaville was good, Gilleys was dead. Great souvenir shop. Pool was average. Too cold to swim anyway. Only negatives: Sirens of TI closed for reno, almost NO food after midnight. Great hotel though!
