Shania Twain, 57, reveals her VERY strict pre-show routine as she celebrates the 25th anniversary of her breakthrough album Come On Over
Shania Twain has revealed the strict pre-show routine she adheres to as she celebrates the 25th anniversary of her groundbreaking album.
The “Man I Feel Like A Woman” hitmaker appeared on Friday’s episode of “Lorraine,” which was hosted by Christine Lampard on Friday, as she opened up about the ritual she is observing.
The 57-year-old revealed she doesn’t eat before a show, so she skips dinner.
She explained, “I don’t eat solid foods before the show.” “It’s about knowing your routine and making sure you don’t need a bathroom break.”
The pop sensation’s groundbreaking album Come On Over was released in 1997 and has since sold 40 million copies. This makes it the 15th best-selling album of all time in the UK.

Shania also spoke about her fitness routine, admitting that when she’s on tour, performing is her exercise: “The show has two hours of heart rate up,” she explained.
She added that when she’s not touring, she enjoys horseback riding.
“When I’m not touring I like to ride, when I’m not riding I go for a walk or stay busy.”
To celebrate the celebratory milestone of her album, the star is remastering the original tapes for the first time ever and is returning to hit Las Vegas next year to reside at Planet Hollywood.
Come On Over has been certified as both the best-selling country album and the best-selling album by a female artist of all time.
It is the best-selling studio album by an international female artist in the UK, having charted for three years, including 11 weeks at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and 51 weeks in the Top 10.
Speaking of the record, the star said: “With Come On Over it was important to me to present what I believe to be the best record of my life and that’s why there are so many songs on it.”
“I thought, ‘Let’s just upload this in case there’s no other chance. Let’s not hold anything back.”
Careful planning: “I don’t eat solid foods before the show.” It’s about knowing your routine and making sure you don’t need a bathroom break.

There was no point in saving songs for another album or even gifting songs to other artists as I figured this might be my only chance to really impress as a follow-up to the previous Diamond-certified album.
“I would say that ‘Come On Over’ put so much pressure on me because I knew there was more to me than just a Diamond album.”
Speaking of her wide audience, she explained, “My audience was wider than the average country genre audience—they came from all over the world!”
“This was an album that was really meant to bridge genres and I wanted to make sure fans were getting what they’ve come to expect from me as a multi-genre artist.”
“With this album, I’m trying to do that and bring as many different people together as possible – so imagine how incredible it feels to still feel like I’m bringing people together 25 years later?” I’m on a great one point in my life.
Among her numerous hits, the album earned her number one on the charts: You’re Still The One, Love Gets Me Every Time, Man! I feel like a woman! and that doesn’t impress me much.
The new version will also include nine tracks of live duets with Chris Martin, Elton John, Alison Krauss and the Backstreet Boys.
Shania is currently on her worldwide “Queen of Me” tour, which runs until November 2023.
