Shania Twain graced the stage at London’s Hyde Park with a show-stopping performance that left fans in awe. 

Despite battling a cold, the 58-year-old singer delivered a mesmerizing set. Dressed in a striking red printed Vivienne Westwood jacket and mini skirt, paired with sparkling white boots, Shania opened her headline set with her 1997 hit Don’t be Stupid (You Know I Love You). 

The Canadian sensation captivated thousands of fans during her hour-and-a-half performance at the British Summer Time (BST) show, just a week after her much-talked-about Legends slot at Glastonbury Festival.

Although her vocals at Glastonbury had drawn some online criticism, Shania's resilience and talent shone through at Hyde Park. 

She bravely addressed the crowd, admitting she was fighting off "sniffles" to perform. "I have a little cold but who cares, just a little sniffle," she announced, unfazed, though she did turn away from the crowd several times to clean her nose.

The atmosphere was electric, with fans donning vibrant and sparkly cowboy hats, leather boots, and leopard print garments in homage to Shania's signature style. Many wore T-shirts emblazoned with the lyrics "let’s go girls" and "giddy up," creating a sea of devoted followers ready to celebrate their idol.

Shania's ensemble, including electric guitars, drums, keyboard, and violins, delivered an unforgettable performance.

She expressed her gratitude to the crowd for welcoming her back to The Hyde Park stage after many years. "I just wanna tell you a little bit about what this means to me – I’ve been coming to concerts here for many, many years and watching all the legends play this stage," she shared. 

"I have played this stage once before, it’s been a while… here I am again and I just can’t thank you enough, you guys are so awesome thank you. I’m really happy right now. London, thank you for having me back."

In a heartfelt moment, Shania sat down with an acoustic guitar and led the crowd in a singalong of her hit Still the One, announcing, "London, it looks like we made it." The set, adorned with the words “The Twain Town Saloon” and signs for ‘Cocks’ and ‘Hens,’ was a country masterclass featuring hits like From This Moment On and I’m Gonna Getcha Good. She closed the night with the empowering anthem Man! I Feel Like A Woman!

Shania's set followed a day of fantastic music, which also featured performances by singer-songwriter Anne-Marie and the Irish family band The Corrs.

The excitement at Hyde Park continues, with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks set to play next Friday, followed by Australian pop star Kylie Minogue headlining on Saturday. Shania Twain's unforgettable performance has undoubtedly set the bar high for what promises to be an incredible summer of music in London.
