Canadian superstar Shania Twain is Timmins’ most famous daughter and the legendary singer last performed in her hometown way back in 1999, but according to various reports she could be heading home next year for a special performance.
Twain, 51, was born in Windsor but was raised in Timmins and the star could be set to perform in her home city for the first time in 17 years to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
According to Timmins Today several sources have said that the city has made an offer to the ‘You’re Still The One’ singer who is currently working on her fifth studio album after retiring from touring last year.
The offer has reportedly been made to Shania’s management team and if accepted it would be a very special homecoming for the proud Canadian.
Despite the reports, Timmins’ Mayor Steve Black has said that the rumours are premature; “Shania nor any other band has been confirmed or booked by City of Timmins at this time for Canada Day 2017. We are meeting [this] week to discuss options and what we will be doing.”
If the rumours are proved true it would see Shania Twain performing in her home city for the first time since her emotive homecoming show way back in July 1999.
The country legend also returned to the city back in December 2010 as she took part in the Olympic Torch relay on its way to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.
