Last night Global Music Icon, and the top-selling female country artist of all-time, Shania Twain, debuted her new headlining residency show, Shania Twain “Let’s Go!” The Las Vegas Residency, at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Spotted in the audience on opening night were several of Shania’s celebrity fans, including AJ McLean, David Copperfield, Kim Petras, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Lala Kent, Randall Emmett, Carrot Top and Raiders (who will open up next season in Las Vegas at a brand new stadium) owner Mark Davis. Mark who is the son of the late Al Davis, is a friend of this reporter from The LA Raider days, when we went to many parties after the Raider’s games in Los Angeles.
