Went to review the Shania Twain concert on Friday night at the Forum in Tampa. Except for the music I had to listen to, I had a blast.

Anyway, the Rev. Joe Kendall went, too, and sent me these photos he took at the concert. Not bad, considering they're from the third deck.


This was during the part of the show when she was introducing her band. I kept waiting for one of them to fall like Mustafa in "Austin Powers" into the center pit.

Shaniqua is on the bottom right.


This was taken during the encore, after she appeared onstage in a Tampa Bay Lightning jersey. I don' t think I've ever been to a concert where hockey was so much of a presence. At one point during the band introductions, a chant of "LET'S GO LIGHTNING" broke out when one of the musicians announced he was from Calgary.


During the final song of the night - I can't even remember what that was at this point - the stage was engulfed in dripping sparks and boatloads of lavender confetti. It was very Bon Jovi-esque. Especially the lavender part.

Here's a large-scale version of what all that damned confetti looked like.

On behalf of Canadians everywhere, I apologize for the existance of Shania Twain...(and Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, etc.) ;-)
