Country music superstar Shania Twain to play Charlottetown in August

CHARLOTTETOWN - Country singing superstar Shania Twain will headline a special concert as part of Founders Week festivities this summer in Prince Edward Island.

The concert is scheduled for Aug. 30 at the Charlottetown Events Grounds.

Organizers say the performance will be Twain's first in Atlantic Canada in 15 years.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on March 7.

Founders Week is the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference that led to Canadian Confederation in 1867.

The festival to be held during the first week of September will also feature a number of cultural events and a gathering of tall ships.

"I am looking forward to returning to Atlantic Canada after 15 years and playing Charlottetown and P.E.I. for the first time," Twain said in a statement. "I’m so excited to participate in this very special anniversary event."
