Shania Twain speaks about country music and her world tour

Shania Twain has spoke up in support of her fellow female singers. Recently, speaking to a leading Canadian magazine, the US country singer talked about a lot of things including her last tour that will start in June. In her interview, Twain told that other female artists are taking a lot of risks in their career and they are fighting against their critics like she did once.

She told that it is very much dominated by men at this point of time. It lacks enough women. Maybe it is more romance that country music is missing right now. Women have a whole lot to say but it takes a lot of guts to say it. Women are the greater risk-takers. When they step out of what is expected in this genre, they are really stepping in the line of fire.

She told that when she first came out with songs, it could have gone either way. It was never going to be anywhere in the middle. There were definitely people criticizing what she was really doing. But Shania really does not regret the choices she actually made or the criticism she took for being a powerful lady woman and speaking her mind with her music. It has served her be able to identify with the women who have come tough way in country music — such as Taylor Swift.

Twain told that those who make it to the top knows that what it’s like, at times, she relive it when she see it again. She feel for that person. She expect that they are being strong right now and they have great backing. She expects that they are not taking it too personally. She has compassion for those.

Peter Kay Promises more Shows of Phoenix Nights

The renowned comedian, Peter Kay, had announced recently that he is planning to bring back his television series Phoenix Nights in the form of a live show.

A non-profit charity organization, Comic Relief, has agreed to help Peter in his efforts. Two dates, namely January 31 and February 1, were announced by Peter Kay. The news was revealed to BBC radio’s Steve Wright.

Peter Kay will feature as both doorman Max and Brian Potter (owner of Phoenix Club). Dave Spikey will make his return as Jerry St Clair, while Paddy McGuinness will reappear as doorman Paddy. The idea dawned upon Kay this year and he believed that the organization of the show would take at least a year. After the announcement from Kay, the fans got excited. The demand for tickets was phenomenal. Therefore, this caused Peter Kay to announce the 13th date for the charity show. Originally, the comedian only announced two live shows of Phoenix Nights next year.

The additional 10 shows were declared within one hour after the tickets were put on sale. The organizers revealed that 120,000+ passes were sold within 3 hours on Sunday November 30. Kay confirmed that passes for the 13th date would be put on sale on Monday at Manchester Arena. Now the series Phoenix Nights will have more shows than Take That’s run at the same venue. The project has also edged past Monty Python’s 10 shows at O2 arena in July.
