I just got an email that Shania Twain has signed a 2-year contract to perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Since I am part of her fan club they are giving me the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance before the general public can purchase theirs. The pre-sale starts this Saturday morning, which is less than 72 hours from now, which to me, seems like really short notice. Also her first show won't even be until December 1st of 2012! I've never heard of tickets going on sale a year and a half in advance. Not complaining though.

It's funny cuz I'm not a country fan at all but I just absolutely love Shania! I found out recently that she was at The Grove in Los Angeles doing a book signing but found out too late. I was super bummed! I would've totally gone and would have loved to have met her. I think she is so beautiful!

I like Shania too, nice crossover artist. Selling tickets a year and a half in advance is absurd though. Guess they're trying to recoup her signing bonus immediately, and gauge interest for future sales.

How much were the tickets anyway?

I'm not a fan either but I just absolutely love her as well. Probably not the same reason as you though.

I recall getting emails about Celine Dion's return to Caesars well over a year before the scheduled date, incluidng inof on how to get tickets online. So it would seem a common state of affairs for this company.

Hey, if you're REALLY a fan, and REALLY want good seats...

My only question is, are they refundable. I mean, if I had any desire (I don't), I wouldn't mind forking over the money as long as I could get it back if I couldn't go to Vegas at that time. Hell, I might even pay for tickets for two or three different dates, so I could remain flexible.

But I'm not a fan, so it's a moot point.

I tried looking on TicketMaster but for some reason I'm having issues on their site.

TickMaster says you have 3 days to refund or exchange.

That's kind of nuts. What if Shania gets pregnant and can't perform, needs to check into rehab, or there are construction delays? The unknowns, and the present value of the cash would keep me from locking it up for 18 months... unless:

Are there extra incentives like a backstage tour, party pass, or exclusive autograph session, only available if you buy now?

Tickets are $55 to $250, plus applicable fees. I think people who are asking if there are bonuses for buying tickets 18 months in advance completely miss the point. There will be only 1/4 million tickets available for the first year.

In comparison, Celine Dion on her year long Taking Chances Tour in 200809 performed before 3 million people. I think the entire year for Shania Twain will be sold in a day or two.

Paco, where did you find these prices? I looked Shania up on TicketMaster and the page won't load properly.

Plus, I'm surprised you didn't whip out one of your charts...... ;-P
